Charlie, I can help. Now stay with me, this is comlicated. I want you to look at your remote control. Actually look at it. In the upper right hand corner, there is a button that says "Power". Press that button. No, don't worry, your tv is not broken. It is just off. If you press the power button again it will come back on. Go ahead and try it, I will wait. There, see. I told you not to worry. Okay, now, turn it off again. Now set the remote down on the coffee table and stand up. I know, it's hard, but you can do it. It has only been two weeks. Look to your left, she that big rectangle thing in the wall? That is called a door, walk over to it. That's good, you can do it, I am so proud of you, I want you to open the door, good, good, yes that's the way. WHOOPS, sorry, I should have warned you about the bright light. That is called the sun. No, don't be scared, it is a good thing. Feel how warm it is. Take a deep breath, doesn't that feel good? That is called fresh air. See, no need to worry about NBC at all. :)
