Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 The Count coaches David through filling some candy jars with beans and explains he's going to play the sorting game; although not with sizes, but with numbers. David explains no one could ever count as many beans as he's poured into the jars; no one, that is, except for the Count. As a compromise, he places three sets of two beans and one set of three beans on the table and sings "One of These Things". When he's done singing, he can see that the Count is sad about the game being over, so David tells him he's always wanted someone to count just how many beans are in Hooper's Store.
