Instead, Olga reveals that she isn't as happy and perfect as Helga thinks she is and that she wishes that she was ignored by their parents, much like Helga is.

Not only is the man now pantless, he's crying uncontrollably and slowly walks off, constantly repeating "I was just trying to ask you where's the bus stop". A small crowd looks at Arnold with complete disgust as he realizes what he's done.]]
