SCENE 1 Zoe approaches Ruthie inside Finders Keepers clutching a list of things she needs. Reading her paper, it contains drawings of a hat and a scarf with their beginning letters next to them. Zoe wrote them because she thinks they start with those letters, but Ruthie explains a better way is to write the words out. She fetches the items for her, which fit too big on Zoe, but Zoe reveals they're for a snowman she's going to build. Ruthie points out there's no snow around, so Zoe leaves to go make it snow.
