We study relations in the Grothendieck ring of varieties which connect the Hilbert scheme of points on a cubic hypersurface Y with a certain moduli space of twisted cubic curves on Y. These relations are generalizations of the "beautiful" Y-F(Y) relation by Galkin and Shinder which connects Y with the Hilbert scheme of two points on Y and the Fano variety F(Y) of lines on Y. We concentrate mostly on the case of cubic surfaces. The symmetries of 27 lines on a smooth cubic surface give a lot of restrictions on possible forms of the relations.
