[sudo-users] Getting sudo to be quiet in a script

I am wondering if there is a command line switch that will tell
'sudo' not to say:
We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type.
#3) With great power comes great responsibility.
when 'sudo' is issued. I recently switched from Fedora Core where
this was only presented once ever to Debian where it is presented often.
I realize (and applaud) the logic behind this. In my case though I am
calling 'sudo -v' from withing a script and I want to surpress this output.
I want to simplify as much as I can what the user needs to do so I
would rather avoid editing the config file if I can (if even that is
possible). The man page didn't have any indication as to what I could do
and the '-p' option didn't supress it, either.
