    In the Gym, 4 is helping 3 get out lots of boxes. She wants to put one beautiful thing in each box, then changes her mind when she sees how lonely each looks. A boy has two bike helmets, then none, and the diners in the café have similar problems. 5 flies out, and discovers that Spooky Spoon is the culprit. The Numberjacks send Brain Gain to make everything one each. But then the diners have only one bit of each type of food each - so the Numberjacks send new Brain Gain - sometimes one thing each is good, sometimes two or more things is good.
