"The Birds"
Melanie pretends to be the shopkeeper and engages him in conversation. Noticing a pair of lovebirds, he says, "Aren't these lovebirds?" "No," she answers, "those are redbirds." She then leads him to a yellow bird, claiming that it is a lovebird. When Mitch remarks that he thought the yellow bird was a canary, Melanie simply says that they are also known by that name. Mitch then asks to see the "lovebird" (canary) close up. Melanie tries to take it out of the cage, whereupon it escapes and flies about the shop. The shopkeeper returns amidst the confusion. Mitch catches the bird and gently returns it to its gilded home, saying, "Back into your cage, Melanie Daniels."
