Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Gina and Zoe welcome the viewer from Hooper's Store, where Gina has constructed a nearly-finished pyramid of apples on the counter. After Gina places the final apple on top, Zoe asks her if she can have one of them. Gina hands her the top apple, but Zoe decides she wants the one on the bottom left corner instead. Gina tells her what would happen if she removed it, but Zoe thinks she's joking and proceeds to take it anyway, making the tower collapse. Zoe feels sorry for causing the accident, but feels better when Gina gives her a kiss, and asks if she can keep the apple. Gina requests her to help clean up the mess first.

After they've finished, the Amazing Mumford enters to show them his new disappearing trick with his new wand, and decides to try it on their apples.

Zoe wants him to make more apples disappear, so he does his trick again and manages to make the eight remaining disappear. Gina asks him to make them all reappear, but Mumford says he'll have to wait for his wand to cool down.
