SCENE 4 Telly doesn't think they'll be able to finish their song because he can't think of a word that rhymes with rain. After brainstorming a few words that rhyme but don't fit the song, a penguin asks them where he can catch a bus to the arctic, since the ice patch he was playing on melted and went down the drain. The penguins then offer their services as musicians.
