Steve is cheering, while wearing a party hat and a noisemaker.
Steve: "Yay! It's my birthday!"
Beaver appears in order to correct Steve.
Beaver: "Steve, for the third time, it's not your birthday until next week!"
Steve: "Next week? But that's forever! Why can't it come sooner?"
Beaver walks off to the left while Steve looks cross, with wavy frustration lines wafting up.
Beaver: "I'm afraid you're just going to have to wait patiently like everybody else."
Steve: "Bah! Waiting patiently is for saps! If only there was some way to make time pass more quickly..."
Steve produces his "My First Black Hole Kit". The party hat is gone.
Steve: "Hmm... And maybe there is.."
- Kids love Black Hole Kits.
In 279 Steve used a box with "My first Neurosurgery kit".
