She puts a rose in her mouth and dances with Big Bird while he mentions the sponsors. Ruthie sees there isn't much room in Finders Keepers to tango, so she and Big Bird dance their way up to Celina's studio.

SCENE 5
Gordon enters Finders Keepers, and runs into Ruthie doing a dance she's just invented for Celina's class, "The Duck." Gordon thinks she looks silly, and she takes that as a compliment. Gordon needs a birthday present for Susan, and suddenly spots an attractive hat (formerly owned by Dorothy's Aunt Em). Ruthie says she'll let him have it for free as long as he does the duck dance with her. He reluctantly agrees, then finds the dance to be fun, even if it's a little silly.
