SCENE 2
Susan and Miles are running a clothing drive in the arbor. Telly comes by with a box full of old, baby clothes, when Miles comes across a small, stuffed horse. Telly recognizes him as Clark, his favorite toy when he was a baby (before he got Freddy). Susan sees how fond he is of Clark and suggests he keep him. Telly declines, claiming he's too old for him now and another child should have him.

SCENE 2 cont'd
Telly returns, recalling how Clark was there for even more important milestones in his life, such as the first time he saw a triangle and his first steps. Susan believes he should just keep Clark, but Telly thinks keeping his baby toy will make him a baby. He decides he needs some closure before giving him away and sings a song about their times together. Telly leaves Clark with Susan, saying he'll return after some soul searching.
