SCENE 4 Luis explains to the viewer that it's important to clean your glasses as he dries his off his pair with a cloth. Oscar calls Luis over to show off Fluffy's invention — self-cleaning eye-glasses. Luis tries them on, and presses the wired remote which activates small wind-shield wipers on each lens. Oscar praises Fluffy's brilliance, though Luis points out that the lenses would have to be wet in order for the wipers to work. Oscar tells Luis to take it up with Fluffy, which of course results in him getting squirted with water.
