Baby Bear sings a "scrubby scrubby" song as he takes a bath. As he finishes, he discovers Goldilocks has been in the tub with him breathing from a snorkel.
SCENE 3 Baby Bear's next secret of happiness is poetry. He attempts to recite "Peas Porridge," but Goldilocks interrupts and finishes it for him, believing she is helping. Baby Bear begs that she just leave him alone and not help anymore. She agrees and Baby Bear thanks the heavens.

SCENE 4 The next secret to Baby Bear's happiness is "sharing knowledge with a friend." He has his "happy glasses" to show how they can be the same and different simultaneously. When he concludes his lecture, he finds he can't put the glasses back down without a free hand. Goldilocks happens by and Baby Bear asks for her help, when she reminds him of their previous agreement.
