Drossel von Flügel meets with Gedächtnis in the main hall of the Flügel Manor, (she calls him Duranosumorina and Baruserona in this episode), and ask if he sees anything different about her. When Gedächtnis guesses that its her Capoeira, which she denies, he realizes it is her hairstyle. Although she fancies the hairstyle, Gedächtnis informs her that it is actually flying gear that can be activated by clicking her heels three times. However, when the gear fails to activate, it causes humorous results.
