"Why so glum?" Balloon asks a gloomy looking Cassandra while floating in place.
"I blame gravity." She replies and begins to look up. "It keeps holding me down."
Cassandra watches as Balloon keeps elevating.
Balloon's journey out of frame continues as Cassandra looks on.
Only the tail end of Balloon's string remains in frame. A disappointed and grounded Cassandra looks down, breaking visual contact with Balloon, who jokingly comments, "Sucker!"
