Picture Segment Description
Maria encounters a greaser with wings, who happens to be the Tooth Fairy. He proves who he is by showing how much he knows about Maria - she used to live on the Grand Concourse of the Bronx, and he would leave a nickel under her pillow whenever she lost a baby tooth. Right now, he has a problem: he doesn't know which of his two unmarked bags is full of teeth, and which one is full of money. He's not willing to look inside them, so Maria suggests that he shake them to see which bag is which. She remarks to the viewer, "This is a very unusual street."
