SCENE 4
Oscar tells the viewer about a plan he has: he still feels a little bad about Telly's arm, so he won't interact with Telly at all. Telly tries talking to him, then bangs on his trash can. Oscar finally admits to Telly that he's hiding from him because he doesn't want to tell a Monster with a broken arm to get lost. Telly appreciates Oscar for this gesture, and Oscar kind of does too, since it resulted in an argument between them.
