Panel 1:
Iffy is standing behind Mimi.
He says: I love that perfume you’re wearing.
Mimi, smiling, says: You do?

Panel 2:
Closeup of Iffy, thinking out loud.
He says: Yes. Isn’t it amazing how a scent can take you back to a wonderful place in time?
All of the sights and sounds and smells and emotions of that moment come rushing back. And it feels so real!

Panel 3:
Closeup of Iffy, thinking out loud of fond memories.
He says: The cabin on the lake, the wood-burning stove. You and me in that big, comfy bed. Oh, the memories!
Mimi, out of view, says: That wasn’t me.

Panel 4:
Iffy is horrified. Mimi is angry.
Iffy says: Huh?
Mimi, glaring at the perfume bottle in her hand, says: Must have been your first wife.
I just bought this perfume, but it’s going in the trash!
