  • Maria puts two bars together to form the letter T.
  • David says "T" and crumbles a letter T into tiny pieces that fall to the floor; a reverse in the film has the T materialize again.
  • David discovers Maria in tears. She explains that she was washing her hands, had put her rings on the edge of the sink, and had accidentally knocked them into the sink and down the drain. David points out that the S-shaped pipe under the sink is called a trap; it traps things that drop down the drain. He borrows a wrench and recovers Maria's rings. She is now all smiles.
  • Maria has a lower-case t over her right shoulder and a capital T over her left shoulder. She identifies both Ts in Spanish.
  • Ernie & BertErnie comes home to a sleeping Bert and tries to think of things to do that won't wake him up. He can't watch TV, and he can't play with his ball. Bored, he decides to take a nap too -- but then he starts to snore. This awakens Bert, who wonders out loud where the noise is coming from, in the process arousing Ernie, who gets mad at being woken up. (First: Episode 0280)
