Soon enough the goosey family comes knocking, but Froggie's enthusiasm terrifies Gosling, who launches into a fit of nonstop honking, which in turn frightens Froggie and sends him into hiding. As he hides, he hums, then sings, then dances. Gosling quiets her honking to watch him, and their friendship finally begins. The visit culminates happily with a picnic, a story and a farewell lullaby.
