Chiaki, Makoto, Uchida, Yoshino, Shuuichi, and two unnamed male classmates are gathered around Chiaki's desk listening to Makoto give an anecdote about an argument in the teachers' lounge. However, Makoto refers to the teachers by the names "Hurricane #14" and "Monsoon." When Makoto begins talking about the interruption by the "Unopenable Plastic Umbrella," Chiaki stops him and asks him about the seemingly nonsensical story he is telling. Makoto is surprised and asks if she is serious and Yoshino reveals that Chiaki herself came up with these nicknames. Makoto continues, saying that the argument was the fault of the "Black-Bellied Polar Bear," causing Chiaki to imagine a black-bellied polar bear chasing away penguins.
When Makoto goes on to talk about the "Teapot Without a Lid," Chiaki imagines a black-bellied polar bear bathing in a giant open teapot getting caught in a monsoon, trying and failing to open a plastic umbrella, before getting blown away in a hail of debris.

Kana (19:12), showing her bizarre logic in explaining why she plans to foster a breast size competition: "Haruka, what is hospitality? It's showing exquisite consideration. Besides exquisite consideration, we have to work our guests up skillfully. And for that reason, I'm going to heat things up in the bath."

Kana draws upon wordplay between "hospitality" and "warmth" to conclude that the proper way to show hospitality to Fujioka, Riko, and Keiko is to invite them to use bathwater heavily laced with chili peppers.

In this OVA, Kana Minami is shown toweling her head dry after getting out of the shower. Her little sister Chiaki Minami suggests she wear a swimsuit so that she could shower as much as she likes without getting changed. It is likely Kana is taking a Cold Shower since she is feeling hot, complaining about the summer's heat. She does change into the swimsuit though, and when Chiaki's friends come over, they are disappointed that neither actually wants to accompany them to the pool.
