Neither of them want to get married nor are they happy with their titles of Prince and Princess.  They decide to take on the roles of a clown and a gypsy.  Prince Damon takes a vow before Gaspard and Snipe saying that he will not speak until Princess Dana declares that he is the best clown in the land.  With the help of Rita, Dana joins the band of gypsies.  One day while Gaspard, Snipe and Prince Damon are rehearsing in the woods, Rita and Dana overhear them and are asked to join their traveling troupe of performers.  Dana and Damon get to know each other better and Princess Dana, with her declaration that Damon is the best clown, ends Damon’s vow of silence.
