Big Bird shows him some other, similar works he's made, such as "Batting Zero" and "Sunny Day, Chasing the Clouds Away." Bob pulls up another sheet and asks what the painting is; Big Bird replies, "That's not a picture, Bob...it's a blank piece of paper."

SCENE 4 Telly Monster is in Bob's apartment for a piano lesson, which he hopes won't require too much remembering. Bob begins by introducing him to the keys, but Telly doesn't think he can remember what they're called. He runs out and returns with a piece of cheese, and the rhyme will act as a pneumonic device to remember the keys. In order to remember the cheese, he gets Barkley (who has fleas). To remember the fleas, he reminds himself to sneeze. Bob simply has him repeat the word "keys" over and over until it remains solid in his memory. When Bob tries to introduce the concept of a note, Telly runs out to find a goat.
