When asked by a student about what he would do with the knowledge, Stephen Hawking’s wishful thinking is revealed and the scene cuts to opera singer Gio Compario harassing a couple on a street with his singing, before the black hole form behind him and sucks him in. Stephen Hawking is then shown smirking.
