BG: I can't believe that this politician… actually said so! Tippy: What did he say? 
Frame 2: (A close-up of BG and Tippy seated in the car) BG: He said… 'The situation is similar to a blind man in a dark room looking for a black cat'! Frame 3: (A close-up of BG's face) BG: This is insane! Frame 4: (BG and Tippy seated in the car) BG: First of all… a dark room would make no difference to a blind person! Frame 5: (BG and Tippy seen from the back seated in the car) BG: And a black cat! Ha! A black cat would make no difference either! Tippy: I agree…! This is silly! Frame 6: (A close-up of BG and Tippy seated in the car) BG: Why on earth do the sighted ridicule the blind so… thoughtlessly?! Frame 7: (A close-up of BG's face with eyebrows lowered in the middle, showing frustration) BG: I'm asking you… Why?! Frame 8: (A close-up of Tippy's face, almost red with anger) Tippy: Don't yell at me…! I would not say anything so stupid! Frame 9: (BG and Tippy seated in the car) Tippy: And more importantly… I'm not a politician! (Signed Ponnappa, in Frame 8)
