  • In the Fix-It Shop, Luis introduces Sam the Robot to the word "LOVE" and the concept of it. Since Sam is a machine, he is unable to have such a feeling...that is, until he lays his eyes on Gordon's toaster and falls madly in love with it. He soon brings the toaster a bouquet of flowers and is pleased to see Luis has fixed "her" back to working order. He becomes heartbroken, however, when Gordon comes to pick it up and take it back home. Luis then begins working on Mr. Hooper's blender, which Sam is instantly attracted to as well.
  • Ernie & BertErnie has a licorice whip that he offers to share with Bert. He divides it in half with a pair of scissors, but then discovers that Bert's half is longer than his. He cuts off a little bit of Bert's half, and eats it. Then he discovers that his own half is longer than Bert's, and that's not fair, so he cuts off a bit of his own, and eats it. Ernie goes back and forth, cutting off more and more, until the licorice whip is gone.
