Susan tells him to turn the radio down so we can talk about the alphabet, but he doesn't want to, because he doesn't care about the alphabet. He soon hears that there is a grouch radio contest, the prize of which is two dozen liverwurst donuts. Oscar receives the call, and to win the prize, he has to recite the alphabet. He's out of luck, since he can't remember the last letter, and Susan won't help him. When he doesn't get the prize, he politely asks for Susan's help with the alphabet.
