Old woman: I like your… sense of humour young man! Frame 3: (A close-up of the old woman smiling with her eyes barely open) Old woman: I notice you’re blind and you sport a T-shirt with only one wise monkey! Frame 4: (A close-up of BG smiling wide while he sports a T-shirt with an image of a monkey closing its eyes with its hands and the following text written below the image: I SEE NO EVIL!) Frame 5: (A close-up of the old woman smiling with her eyes half-closed) Old woman: But what have you against the other two wise monkeys? Frame 6: (BG smiles while seated beside the old woman. Trees are seen in the background.) BG: To be honest M'am, I do hear bits of evil spoken now and then! So that monkey's out! Frame 7: (A close-up of BG almost frowning.) BG: And I sadly happen to use some evil words at times! So… that monkey is out too! Frame 8: (BG now stands as he appears to be stretching his hands out sideways showing off his T-shirt with a broad smile.) BG: And as you can see M'am… this particular monkey is very relevant to me!
