Panel 1: (Desmond is holding a bag of turkey, turning his head to look at Helen, who is rolling her eyes, pointing at her ear, and signing Christmas. There is holiday music playing in the background with images of holly, ornaments, and candy canes)
Helen: “GEEZ! THEY’RE PLAYING CHRISTMAS MUSIC!”

Panel 2: (Desmond looks confused, resting his hand on a shopping cart, signing Thanksgiving. Helen is giving Desmond a sarcastic look and signing repeat, bells, L-A)
Desmond: “THEY ARE? IT ISN’T EVEN THANKSGIVING YET.”
Helen: “THAT DOESN’T MATTER! FROM OCTOBER 31ST AT MIDNIGHT UNTIL DECEMBER 31ST AT MIDNIGHT… WE HEAR NOTHING BUT AN ENDLESS LOOP OF ‘FA LA LA LA LA AND JINGLE BELLS’!”

Panel 3: (Desmond is pushing a shopping cart, smiling. Helen is holding cans, looking up, frowning at the holiday music in the background)
Desmond is thinking: “YET, ANOTHER GREAT ADVANTAGE OF BEING DEAF!”
