SCENE 1
Big Bird and The Count are in the Fix-It Shop when Luis gets a call from a relative in New Mexico, where he grew up. His grandparents are building a new house, and Luis agrees to go back to the ranch to help. The Count is excited to hear that "one person is going to New Mexico in one truck," and asks if anyone else is going. Luis asks the Count if he wants to come along, but the Count says, "Me? Oh, my goodness, no thank you, Luis. I need to stay here on Sesame Street to count things!" The Count suggests that Big Bird would like to go. Big Bird is interested, but he needs to know: What's New Mexico? Luis explains that New Mexico is part of the United States. There are a lot of Indians and Spanish-speaking people who live there, and they named the state after the place where the Spanish-speaking people came from, Mexico. Big Bird agrees to go, and the Count shouts, "Wonderful! Two people going to New Mexico. Two people and one truck!"Maria enters, and the Count insists that she should go on the trip. She agrees to go, and the Count happily counts three people who are going to New Mexico, and one truck. He leaves the shop to find more people who are going.
