Back in reality, Mehmet says that the bicycle is fixed, he just needs a very specific screw that he does not have. Just as Finchen says that they should not bother asking Rumpel if he has one, he pops up from his barrel with the screw that Mehmet is missing, and hands it to Mehmet. It turns out he was not trying to be nice, the screw was just not worth keeping for Rumpel, it was too shiny for his rusty screw collection, so he wanted to get rid of it anyway.
