Rowlf's poem about silence is overwhelmed by a variety of other, noisier Muppets, including Miss Piggy, Scooter, Zoot, Janice, Animal, Wanda, George the Janitor and Ohboy Bird. At the end of the sketch, Rowlf shoos them all off, and finishes the poem with the word peace. Just as he is about to relax in silence, Kermit comes onstage and tells Rowlf to quiet down, since they're doing a show. Rowlf breaks out crying as Kermit leaves.
Rowlf attempts to tell a story involving the dark, given the fact that the lights are off onstage. However, he is interrupted midway through the poem by Beauregard, who fixes the lightbulb. Rowlf, annoyed, throws the script away and leaves.
