Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Forgetful Jones and Olivia are sitting together when Forgetful addresses her as "Maynard." Olivia is upset he can't remember her name and tries to teach him things to think of when trying to remember her name (something you eat- an olive, something you scream- "Ee!", and something you say when you can't remember- "Uh.") Forgetful eventually nails the pattern down until he finally addresses Olivia as "Potato Chips Wahoo-uh!" "Just call me Fred," Olivia mutters.
