Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Tingo decides to make soup, based on his mother's recipe. He puts in unchopped onions, tomatoes, carrots, and broccoli.

Insert Celina dances in a broccoli costume, in front of the Furry Arms Hotel. (Chicago's voice-over replaced with Tingo)
SCENE 2 Tingo adds pepper to the soup, to make it spicy. He then notes that spicy is another word for hot. He adds ten grinds of spices, then another ten, counting extremely fast. He tries desperately to get water, but nothing comes out of the tap. He then notices a plumber under the sink, who says the pipes are broken, thus "no water". She then repeats what's in the soup.
SCENE 2 cont'd Tingo, broccoli, and a tomato sing, "There's no water? No water. I want to drink a glass of water, 1-2-3-4-5-6, maybe more."
