After Alan makes a change to Baby Bear's porridge based on a suggestion by Baby Bear (with dried apples), Baby Bear and Alan decide that the Hooper's Store motto should be: "Hooper's Store -- where you can have what you want, just the way you want it." Alan puts up a sign with that slogan, and Telly is tickled by the idea. He orders his usual baloney sandwich, but now he wants it cut into triangles, and served on a triangular paper plate, and he wants to wear a party hat and listen to accordion music. Then he wants Alan to dance with him to "Lady of Spain". The requests go on and on, until Alan finally admits that he made a mistake, and takes the sign down.
