Brown: Have you noticed something different about this place?

Orange: They redecorated?

Brown: It just seems … more colorful.

Orange: I think I like the window most.

Brown: Is there a window? I seem to be staring into space.

Orange: Yeah, there’s a window. They placed it exactly in the right spot to where I can’t see it, except from the corner of my eye.

Brown: I just realized something.

Orange: What’s that?

Brown: I can’t move.
