Scene Quarks understands that he is a frog and not a cow, sheep or Italian, but how should he sing his song? Samson and Finchen suggest that he "quark" the song. However Quarks doesn't think that it's very special for a frog to be quarking. Finchen tells him that a frog that "quarks" opera is special and Samson agrees. But it turns out that Quarks has forgotten how to "quark". Finchen begins to "quark" to show Quarks how to do it and slowly Quarks begins to quark "La donna è mobile". Finchen and Samson are imprssed and Quarks is happy with the result as well, it seems he has found the right language for his concert. But before he leaves he tells Samson that his "quarking" isn't that good and that he should stick to roaring like a bear.
