SCENE 1 A sad and dejected Babs Caplan returns to the library, saying that she needs new ideas. Right on cue, a book of tongue-twisters falls from the balcony above, and she decides to write some. Lionel offers to test them out, as he claims that there isn't a tongue-twister he can't say. He first reads the ever-classic "Peter Piper" twister, which he recites flawlessly. No matter how fast Leona asks him to read it, his tongue doesn't get twisted. Babs goes off to write some more, and Leona offers to help, as she wants to see Lionel's tongue get twisted.

SCENE 2 In order to get Lionel to slip up, Babs and Leona change the words to "zickled zezzers". He recites it flawlessly the first time, but when they ask him to say it faster, he makes a mistake. He then claims that this wasn't fair, because "zickled zezzers" aren't real words. Realizing he's right, Babs goes to write another one, this time, with real words.
