FRAME 1 cont'd
Ernie brings the key to Humphrey and Ingrid, who think he’s come for a room and a meal at their “half-star” restaurant. Ernie denies and returns the key for room number 7. The clerks guess they can asks all the hotel patrons who lost their key, but Ernie offers an easier solution – put the key in the #7 mail box. Humphrey and Ingrid are amazed at how he knew that, when Benny hops in to tell them that he knew because of the number labels. Ernie proceeds to teach them how to count to 20 with a song (“That’s How the Numbers Go”), with Benny joining along.

A monster asks Benny (who’s still singing and dancing) if he’s seen his room key. Humphrey and Ingrid return it to him and remark how great Ernie would be if he worked in a hotel. Ernie says he’d love to. They then teach him their whole knowledge of the hotel business – anytime you need something, just ring the Dinger’s bell. Ernie tries it out by ringing one time, which summons Benny with one bucket of ice.
