Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Roxanne, a new resident of the street, samples some perfume at Finders Keepers, which Ruthie claims all the fairy tale princesses use (and Prince Charming loves). Her large ears (which she's very sensitive about) wiggle, indicating she hears someone coming. Cyranose de Bergerac enters, following the lovely scent and is immediately attracted to Roxanne. She jokes he's not the Prince Charming she expected, especially by the way he sounds. Cyranose embarrassingly exits before Roxanne can tell him how much she likes his accent. She goes out to look for him.
