Frame 1:
Maureen is showing Myrtle a card.
Myrtle: advice has a C in this case because it's a noun, not a verb.
Maureen: Oh... ok.

Myrtle: That 'your' should be 'you're'
Maureen: She knows what I mean.

Maureen: That's the last time I ask you for help writing a birthday card!
Myrtle: (smug) Mission accomplished.
