SCENE 1 Mr. Hooper has a single container of strawberry yogurt at the store, but isn't sure how to get rid of it, knowing it's not a very popular item. He puts it on his specials board, thinking someone will take it off his hands. Gordon stops in and orders it, but soon, everyone on the block comes over and orders some too. Willy proposes they all go to the supermarket and get their yogurt there. Everyone piles out of the store, leaving behind the sole yogurt container. Mr. Hooper shrugs and eats it himself.
