SCENE 1 Frazzle appears outside the Fix-It Shop, wanting to help Maria do her work. Although she initially declines, she takes him under her wing when she sees how sad he is. She asks him to turn on the lights, but before she can tell him what to turn on, he rushes inside and activates a vacuum. She shows him how to turn the lights on, but now he can’t help. So, she has them re-enact entering the store so Frazzle can do it himself. He goes overboard with his only task when he starts turning the lights on and off while she tries to work.
