  • Big Bird is hurt because Luis, Gordon and Maria won't let him help fix a door hinge. They tell him he's not old enough.
  • To prove that he's old enough to do anything, Big Bird wears a gray beard and carries a cane. Luis, Gordon and Maria agree to do something that old people do -- talk. Big Bird gets bored, and goes off with the Kids.
  • Luis, Gordon and Maria offer to help Big Bird fix his nest. In the end, Big Bird agrees, and gives them instructions: "Now just take these little sticks... chew them up good... and then be sure to mix them with the right amount of mud."
  • Ernie and Bert: Ernie stacks cups and saucers in order to count them, making Bert quite nervous. Luckily, they're glued together. (EKA: Episode 0677)
