How can i get scratched in words out of my door?

I have lived in one place for awhile and I just noticed that there are words scratched into the door, does anyone know how I can cover those up?

To do right you strip the door, fill it, sand it, re-paint it.

Strip first, before filling.

Assuming the door is wood. Fill the scratches with wood filler and sand smooth then repaint.

.  If the door is made of metal, you can use a Bondo-type material as filler.
