SCENE 1
OSCAR tells the viewer to get lost, as there's nobody around to visit. He notices them still hanging around, so he decides to quickly introduce the number of the day. He's interrupted by Maria, Luis & Gabi, singing a song about the coquí. They offer to move so he can concentrate, but find his introduction of the number 1 to be very simplistic. OSCAR complies & counts 1 annoying guitar player, wife & child. Luis suggests he go even further & cues some visual aids...

Everyone continues to sing the song, much to OSCAR’s dismay. Linda happens by & knows immediately what they're taking about, having read about the coquí in a library book.
