Panel 1: (Desmond looks frustrated, signing focus, looking at Helen. She looks concerned, and is signing loud)
Desmond: “I CAN’T FOCUS ON WORK… IT’S TOO LOUD IN HERE.”
Helen: “TOO ‘LOUD’?”

Panel 2: EARLIER…
(Cedric is bouncing a basketball with DRIBBLE! DRIBBLE! sounds. Helen is vacuuming with VOOM! VOOM! sounds. They are behind Desmond, who is sitting at his computer desk with his hand on the computer mouse. On his desk, the desktop videophone has a bright red screen with FLASH! FLASH! sounds, and his phone flashing and vibrating with BZZT! BZZZT! sounds. Desmond’s computer has several open windows on it. Desmond is turning his head around, with several faces, to look behind him. One face looks surprised, another face looks confused, the third face has a disappointed look, and the fourth face looks tired)
