RUMPEL has made flower headdresses for his friends & he wants to dance with Mehmet. Meanwhile, Samson & Finchen conclude that the nice RUMPEL is getting on their nerves & they want their good old RUMPEL back. Just then they stop imagining what a nice & polite RUMPEL would be like. 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, & hands it to Mehmet. It turns out he was not trying to be nice, the screw was just not worth keeping for him, it was too shiny for his rusty screw collection, so he wanted to get rid of it anyway.
