Panel 1:

Mimi says: I put a new roll of paper towels on the kitchen dispenser.
Iffy: Please tell me you set it to roll off from the left side?

Panel 2:
Subpanel 1:
Mimi says: Who cares?
Iffy says: I do! The other way is backwards.
Mimi says: Oh, no! I spilled my coffee.
Subpanel 2:
Closeup of Iffy.
He panics and says: It’s all over the rug! I’ll get paper towels!

Panel 3:
Iffy reaches out for paper towels.
He grabs and pulls, and thinks: What’s the problem here?
He yanks hard, and the dispenser flies into the air and Iffy falls backward.

Panel 4:
Iffy is lying on the kitchen floor, his glasses askew, with the roll of paper towels on his chest, still in the dispenser.
Mimi calls from the living room: Are you okay?
Iffy, in a daze, says: You put the roll on backwards.
