We start with a little girl pulling petals off a flower and dropping them in the well, while singing a pretty little song. The monster shows up behind her just as we cut to her parents, boarding up the house and talking intensely about all of "this monster business," when it dawns on them that they each thought the other had put their daughter, Helga, to bed. We cut back to the well where Helga has taught the monster how to pluck petals and to blow a kiss. Unfortunately, they have now run out of things to throw into the well.
