Alice lets out a high-pitched scream at the revelation.

Shinobu's solution: Put Karen on the wall side so that, if Karen does kick Shino off the bed, she'll land on Alice's futon and "I'll still be in heaven." Given how the Imagine Spot of the solution involves Shinobu landing on top of her, Alice's sees it as "more like Hell!"
