Big Bird unlocks the store and goes inside. Just as he is starting toward the other side to turn on the light, he hears a scary noise. Panicked, he runs out of the store and into Mr. Hooper, who has just returned. Mr. Hooper takes Big Bird into the store and turns the light on to reveal that the scary noise was just the telephone off its hook. Mr. Hooper reassures Big Bird -- but then Bob enters the store through the back door, startling them both.
