Panel 1: (Desmond is opening and entering through the front door, turning his head to look at Helen, smiling. Helen is sitting on a sofa, also smiling, and signing movie)
Helen: “HEY, HOW WAS THE HORROR FLICK?”

Panel 2: (Desmond is signing out the story with lots of facial expressions. There are 5 versions of Desmond: 1- He looks sad, frowning, signing movie-about-sick-he-cheat; 2- He looks shocked, opening his mouth wide, signing change-confusion-disappoint-escape; 3- He is turning his head, opening his wide, baring his teeth, signing scared-look; 4- He is closing his eyes, pretending to speak, signing phone-hospital-talk; 5- He acts scared, realizing something, signing phone-caught-me-what)

Panel 3: (Desmond is continuing the story with lots of facial expressions, in front of Helen. There are 4 versions of Desmond: 1- He looks mean, biting his teeth, signing bite-bite-spread-more; 2- He has googly eyes rolling around in his head, sticking out his tongue, acting like a zombie, signing dead-walk; 3- He is giving a suspicious look, signing he-question-think-alive-degrade; 4- He is smiling with his mouth open, signing sad-story-champ. Helen is sitting, frowning, covering her mouth with her hand)
Helen is thinking: “NOTE TO SELF: THE ASL VERSION OF A SCARY MOVIE IS JUST AS BAD AS ACTUALLY SEEING IT!”
