SCENE 1 Telly excitedly rushes over to Oscar's can, with a football helmet, tennis racket, beach ball and butterfly net. He rushes out and back to get a tuba Oscar now says he'll need. The "game" turns out to be a trick on Telly, making him bring all the items for nothing. Oscar expects Telly to feel silly, but instead, Telly feels angry (but has trouble fully expressing it). He runs about in a fit.
