During the train ride Alice hears the Gnat mentioning topics he notices that would make a good joke. The Gnat seems to love jokes, however, he doesn't like saying them himself, he prefers others to make jokes. After the journey on the train, the Gnat introduces her to three insects:the Rocking-Horse-Fly, the Snap-Dragonfly, and the Bread-and-Butterfly. Then, it sighs itself away.
