This is so very, very different. Have we seen a conversational bubble appear in mid-flip before? We have not. If you had been upended suddenly by the force of someone's banal riposte, would you be able to summon a quip? You would not. In this instance it is apparent that Jerry has flipped himself to underscore his callous remark.
Jerry is not only capable of producing the flip, he can control it. Jerry is a Flip Bender.
