One evening, while in his cafe', Rick hears his pianist, Sam, reciting the alphabet while playing the piano against his wishes. He is very displeased by this until he finds that Sam is playing it for his old girlfriend, Ilsa, who he did not know was in town. All of a sudden, a change comes over Rick. He fondly remembers the time she had told him the alphabet in Paris and asks Sam to say it again. And this continues on into the night.
- Rick is made from the Guy Smiley puppet, as evident by the puppet's identical hair and moving eyebrows.
