SCENE 1 Telly goes to Hooper's Store, but finds the door is locked and the glass from the window is missing. He calls David over, who explains that some kids playing baseball accidentally broke the window. Telly helps David measure the size of the window so David can tell his friend what he needs. After measuring, David leaves to make his call. Telly gets an idea on how to help without using the glass and tells the viewer to "watch TV or something" while he heads for the newspapers.

Muppets Benny and his boss have been waiting for Lefty for a long time. Benny wonders how they will know when it's Lefty at the door, so he reminds him that Lefty will knock three times - their secret knock to enter their hideout. Lefty forgets the number, and has to be hinted from his boss what the number of knocks are to gain access, finally giving the correct amount. When they let him in, the boss reprimands him for his poor memory, and warns him that he'll be in big trouble if he forgets again. To test his memory, the boss and Benny lock themselves out, telling him not to let them in until they give the secret knock. Despite the boss' warning, Lefty forgets once again, and finally having enough, he fearfully runs out the back door, leaving the other two stranded outside yelling, "Let us in!" as they angrily pound on the door trying to get in.
