SCENE 1 Rosita gets Telly to participate in her new game, entitled "The Beauty and the Cheese." Telly gladly takes the role of the cheese and recalls being friends with one once. Rosita begins her store, where a witch (Zelda) puts a curse on a prince, turning him into a cheese. Suddenly, a cheese monster (Elmo) finds him and chases him, looking for a snack. The princess (Rosita) is able to return him to normal with a kiss. Elmo notes there wasn't a happy ending for him; he's still hungry. Rosita now switches the story to "Beauty and the Tuna Fish Sandwich," and Telly is chased some more.

SCENE 2 Zelda keeps playing her role at Hooper's Store, chanting, "You're a cheese!" to an actual block of cheese. Mr. Handford goes into the basement to get some plastic wrap for it. Telly and Rosita, overhearing Zelda, go inside the store and see the block of cheese and assume it's Mr. Handford under a spell! Rosita kisses it, but nothing happens. They theorize that saying "You're Mr. Handford" three times, with their eyes closed, will help. Mr. Handford returns to the counter while they do this and wraps up the cheese. They're glad to see he's turned out okay and he offers them some cheese. They shake, wondering who the block of cheese really is now.
