SCENE 1 While Savion does his homework, Telly proceeds to show the viewer some more things he can do with his cast. He can dance, bark like a dog, squeeze his nose, and pretend to be a one-winged airplane. He can also leave Savion alone - of which he is so proud that he comes back and geeks out about it to Savion.

SCENE 2 Telly comes across Linda teaching Lillian and some kids how to sign words like "happy". At first, Telly doesn't think he'll be able to learn along with them, but Linda shows him some signs he can do with one hand, such as "please", "thank you", and "scram" (he wanted to learn the last one for Oscar).
Telly invites Oscar to play a sign language game with him. Oscar declines, but Telly plays with him anyway, having Oscar "guess" the sign for "scram". When he finally "guesses" it, Telly runs off, and Oscar suddenly wants him to come back.
