Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1
Oscar tells the viewer to get lost, as there's nobody around to visit. He notices them still hanging around, so he decides to quickly introduce the number of the day. He's interrupted by Maria, Luis and Gabi, singing a song about the coquí. They offer to move so he can concentrate, but find his introduction of the number 1 to be very simplistic. Oscar complies and counts one annoying guitar player, wife and child. Luis suggests he go even further and cues some visual aids...
