Ed: Hey, look who's skating! It's Ronald McDonald, the hamburger-happy clown! Here he comes! (Ronald trips and falls. His hamburger flies up into the air.) There he goes! (Young boy catches Ronald's hamburger and takes a bite.)
Willard: Hi! Isn't that McDonald's hamburger delicious?

Kid: Mom told me never to talk to strangers.

Willard: Well, your mother's right, as always, but I'm Ronald McDonald. Give me a McDonald's shake! (Shakes the kid's hand; horn honks)

Kid: Well, you sound like Ronald...
Willard: Here, I'll prove it! I'll give you three more hamburgers! As Ronald takes each hamburger off the tray, another one magically appears to take its place.)
Willard: I know, you're not supposed to accept gifts from strangers either.

Kid: But you're no stranger, you really are Ronald McDonald!

Music and singing, while Ronald dances: "He's Ronald McDonald, the hamburger-happy clown, a McDonald's drive-in restaurant is his favorite place in town."

Move on to McDonald's spot #1 or McDonald's spot #3, or return to the Ronald McDonald story.
