Transcript Edit

Teto: Oh, hi! Guess what! Someone wrote me a letter! I found it in my mailbox this morning! They wrote a letter for me! Maybe I have a secret admirer! Who could it be?? But how can I know if I don't read it! [Looks at her letter, but doesn't grip what it says] Um...uh...--There's hardly any vowels. Only D's, R's, And P's. It almost makes no sense to me! I wonder if someone can translate this message for me...

[Miku stands upside down on top of the frame]

Miku: Whee! Tee-hee! Hi! I'm here at the top! The top of the screen. Because, I want to show all about top and bottom! Now I'm at the top! Yeah--[begins to feel gravity and loses balance] Oh,whoa,whoa-o-oh-oh-oh-o-o--[falls]--KYAA!

[Miku falls downwards off-screen with many crashing sounds. She stands up with swirls in her eyes. She shakes her head after experiencing the crash landing.]

Miku: (woozy) Now... I am, at the bottom....Oh.... [faints]
