SCENE 1 cont’d Snuffy reports Big Bird is too busy to play with him today. Mumford tries plugging his new service to Snuffy, but he tells Mumford he can’t read yet, nor does he have something to hold it.

In a parody of High Noon, Clementine doesn't want Forgetful Jones to meet Sinister Sam, the meanest hombre west of the Pecos, at the train tracks at noon, especially since it's their wedding day. But both he and Buster (in song, referencing "Do Not Forsake Me" from High Noon) convince her that "a man's got to do what a man's got to do". Sinister Sam shows up and, in a threatening manner, informs Forgetful Jones that he's got something to say to him, "I think it was mighty nice of you to remember to meet my train!"
