Sake already knows how to nose target other objects with duration, so Michele uses one of these objects to remind Sake about the duration behavior. Once Sake warms up, by targeting the familiar object with duration, Michele transitions to asking Sake to target the microphone. Training Sake to target this new object, she does not focus on duration initially, but will add duration incrementally as Sake continues to target the mic reliably.
