Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Gordon, Susan, Gina and Uncle Wally convene outside Oscar's trash can to surprise him on his birthday. Susan has baked his favorite cake (mud chiffon upside down), Gina has a present (a 1918 tomato can for his collection) and Uncle Wally has a broken record (of "Telephone Rock"). Oscar comes from his can and fumes over their gesture - he's given him exactly what he wanted, which is no way to treat a Grouch. He yells that he hates birthdays, but complies with blowing out the candle; he wishes everyone would leave him alone. Everyone snaps back, promising never to try this type of stunt again, then leaving. "I didn't know they cared," Oscar notes.
SCENE 2 Telly happens over to the Fix-It Shop, where Luis is painting a sign. Telly frets over what the sign could be a warning for, until Luis finishes the sign, reading WET PAINT. He points to a door he just painted (leaning against the wall). Telly notices the paint on the sign is wet as well and makes his own WET PAINT sign for it...then a sign for that sign, then another, and another, etc.
SCENE 3 Telly finds a macaw in the arbor, who has just laid her egg. She needs to gather more twigs and asks Telly to sit on the egg until she returns. She assures him all he needs to do is sit and there's nothing to worry about...except the possibility of breaking the egg.
SCENE 5 The egg continues to crack and Telly worries he's broken it. He notices a beak protruding from the shell and yells at the animal inside for infiltrating the egg. The egg fully hatches and the baby macaw cheaps. Telly worries what he'll do and proposes he put the egg back together.
