Secretknock
Muppets Benny and his boss have been waiting for Lefty for a long time. Benny wonders how they will know when it's Lefty at the door, so he informs him that Lefty will knock three times - their secret knock to enter their hideout. Lefty forgets, so they won't let him in until he finally gets three knocks. When they let him in, the boss informs him that if he forgets the number of knocks again, he's in big trouble. So, to test his memory, the boss and Benny lock themselves out and knock the door to see if Lefty knows which is the correct number. He forgets once again, which gets him very worked up and runs out of the hideout, leaving the other two locked outside.
