Basil tries to tell Manuel that there is too much butter on the trays he is bringing to the guests, but Manuel does not understand English. Basil tries to communicate with Manuel in Spanish, but Basil hardly knows how to speak it. During the conversation, Basil learns how to say "donkey" ("burro") in Spanish, and Manuel learns how to say "mantequilla" ("butter") in English.
