Matthew agrees to free the little man in exchange for his bag of golden magic coins. The leprechaun reluctantly agrees. Matthew tries the coins, but they don't seem to work. The leprechaun explains that the magic coins will only work in service of others. Matthew walks on, and encounters a strange sign post. Matthew tosses one of the magic coins, and the signpost suddenly comes to life and talks! It apologizes to Matthew for not being able to help the boy with his predicament. Matthew walks into a forest of talking trees. The oldest tree tells Matthew to use a magic coin on his frog, to turn it back into the knight which he formerly was. The frog does, indeed, turn into a bumbling knight in shining armor, Sir Humphrey. The knight tells Matthew of the terrible wizard, and how he was turned into the frog. He then gathers a picnic basket of food for Matthew, from a "picnic basket bush!" As Matthew eats....
