Ring Announcer: Bugs is down. He's out. He's flat. He's kissing the canvas.
[Bugs is shown literally kissing the canvas]
Ring Announcer: And here comes the count. One! Two! Three! It looks like it's all over. Four! Five! The champ is still champ.
Bugs Bunny: [Grabs the mike] Six! Seven! But wait just a minute, folks. Bugs is coming out of it. He's on his feet. He's moving in like a tornado. The champ is confused. He doesn't know which way to look.
[At this point the champ starts to react to what Bugs is saying as if it's really happening]
Bugs Bunny: Bugs lands a beauty to the solar plexus! A right to the jaw! A one-two on the instep! Four fast rabbit punches to the kidneys! A left hook, a right hook, a north hook, a south hook! What a fight! The champ is groggy!
[the champ trips on Bugs and falls]
Bugs Bunny: The champ is down.
