Cold Open Nils are sitting outside the house, trying to write a poem for Annette's birthday. He has promised her a gift that he have made himself, however it's hard for him to figure out what rimes with "Annette".
Scene Finchen comes by and Nils tells Finchen that he are writing a poem. Finchen thinks thats very romantic and wants to hear what Nils have written so far. Nils picks up the paper and says "Annette", and says thats all he has for now. Finchen offer to help with the poem as they try together to find something that rimes with "Annette" they hear a sound coming from Rumpel's area. They walk over to find out what it was.
Scene Rumpel tells Finchen and Nils that he has build a Grouch rime machine, it works like this; you say a rime and it will give a fitting Grouchy gift. Finchen tells Nils that maybe the machine can help with a gift for Annette. Nils tries the machine by saying "Annette we celebrate your birthday.." and the machine starts to calculate what Nils just said, it ends up spitting out a couple of eggs at Nils, he catches a few but ends up getting hit on the head by one of the eggs. Nils and Finchen do not think the machine works properly, giving Annette eggs seems like a bad idea.
Scene Nils decides to try again. "Dear Annette your wish is my command", this time the machine sprays out flour at Nils. Rumpel are delighted, that his machine works so well, despite the gifts do lack something Grouchy to them. Rumpel decides to say something himself into the machine; "The rimes are over" and the machine sprays Nils with glaze, and Rumpel admits that he needs to make a few changes to the machine since eggs, flour and glaze are not at all Grouchy. Finchen then gets an idea, those things are ingredients for a cake, Nils could bake a cake for Annette as a gift. Nils loves the idea.
