#216: How to Join a Conversation (Part Two)

[There is a caption and two words in green and red underneath it.] CAPTION: DO YOU KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT THE SUBJECT? YES NO [YES.] CAPTION: CONGRATULATIONS! [NO. Fred is standing awkwardly.] [He looks at his phone.] [The phone has the Wikipedia article for cat.] [Fred talks to Amanda and Grady.] Fred: Talking about cats? Amanda: Yeah! [Fred recites the Wikipedia article's first three sentences, which form a forboding block of text.] Fred: The cat is a small carnivorous mammal. It is the only domesticated species in the family Felidae and often referred to as the domestic cat to distinguish it from wild members of the family. The cat is either a house cat or a farm cat, which are pets, or a feral cat, which ranges freely and avoids human contact. [Amanda and Grady are staring awkwardly at Fred, whose mouth is open in a smile.]
