After Ernie guesses correctly what will happen when Gordon drops a ball and turns on a radio, Gordon asks what will happen when he picks up a bell and shakes it. Ernie says the bell will ring. Gordon states that a monster will come out and start blowing a flute. Ernie thinks that's silly, but is surprised when that exact thing happens.
