SCENE 1
cont'd
"Don't panic, little musical girl," says a detective who arrives with a chicken, "We'll find your piano." He introduces himself as Nick Chicken (Kevin Kline), and the chicken next to him as his sister, Nora (a take off of Nick and Nora Charles from The Thin Man). They'll help Prairie out for a price (chicken feed, of course). They look around the courtyard, listening for anything that sounds like a piano, but Nick keeps bumping into things.

Suddenly, they hear a musical instrument being played, but it's a saxophone, played by a tiger. They also falsely accuse a monkey playing a guitar, and finally spot a farmer pushing the missing piano along. The farmer says he mistook it for his tractor (it's his first day on the job).

SCENE 3
Nick and Nora Chicken hang out at Hooper's, when the voice-over introduces another episode, "The Case of the Missing Chicken."

SCENE 2
cont'd
The same voice-over announces the presence of Colambo, who is now on the case. Colambo is confused when he finds out that Nora is the "sister" of Nick, who insists that he is also a chicken ("I'm one of the biggest chickens you'll ever meet!"). He shows Colambo the pictures of himself and his adopted family (chickens), then they argue over which of them is on the case, until Mr. Handford suggests they cooperate and work together. They agree to do so, and leave Hooper's.

SCENE 5
Nick, Colambo and Telly dress in chicken outfits and pretend to be chickens, since according to Telly's logic, whoever took Nora will mistake them for chickens. Telly is approached by an agent named Bernie, who attempts to snatch him, but Nick and Colambo catch him red-handed. Bernie explains that he hires animals for his all-animal band, and Nora happens to be their tambourine player.
