SCENE 2 Snuffy mopes by the Fix-It Shop and tells Maria that he wants to tell somebody something, but feels too shy to do it. Maria suggests putting it in writing instead. The paper and pen she has are much too small for him, so he dictates the message - "I'm glad we met. I like you. I hope we can be friends. Your friend, I hope, Snuffy." The message turns out to be for Maria, who hugs him and gives him a kiss on the snuffle.
