Oscar the Grouch goes to Hooper's Store to get an ice cream for Susan. He tries to trade rusty bottle caps for the ice cream, but Mr. Hooper refuses the offer. Then Oscar suggests that he could clean the counter in exchange for the ice cream, and Mr. Hooper accepts. Then Oscar has an idea--he could give Mr. Hooper a dime.
