Before or during 2000
- Manny: "It is that bad. For one thing, didn't you have a cat?"
- Bernard: "Oh yeah, where'd he go?"
- Manny: "I found him."
- Bernard: "Nipsy? Brilliant!"
- Manny: "No, no. You don't want to see him"
- — Manny breaks the news to Bernard that Nipsy is dead.
Nipsy was a cat owned by Bernard Black. He died due to unknown causes, however it is presumed he perished due to the state of the shop in which he was living. Manny Bianco broke the news to Bernard that Nipsy was dead.
The way Manny breaks the news to Bernard suggests that the corpse of the cat was somehow rotten or deformed.
