SCENE 1
Susan welcomes the viewer and notices Telly dancing with a wedge of cheese. She asks Juliet what he's doing and she has her go through "The Farmer in the Dell" to figure it out. After singing through the whole song, they get to the verse - "The cheese danced alone"; Telly's doesn't want it to dance alone, so he's dancing with it. Susan explains to him the line is "stands alone," so Telly stands with the cheese (and Juliet joins him).

Miles gets measured for pants and Susan and Gordon both have different ideas, before Gordon decides to follow the cheese's advice from earlier and let Miles pick. "You're starting to think like a cheese now," Telly says. While Miles tries on the pants, Telly has the clerk measure the cheese. They find it's a size 39, a size they don't carry pants in.
