The babies are pretending to be surgeons, operating on Fozzie (complete with an orange juice IV drip), where he is diagnosed with having "Bad-joke-itis" by Dr. Gonzo. When he has a relapse, Gonzo decides to become a different doctor, which leads to the other babies discussing what they want to be when they grow up. Kermit can't figure out what he wants to be, so his friends help him decide what he should do. Nanny gives them a book to help with Kermit's job search. Among the possibilities are a firefighter with Fozzie, a professional bowler (Gonzo's ideal job), a movie star with Piggy, or a triathelte like Skeeter. However, Kermit sees problems in all these jobs, such as being too small and weak to handle a fire hose, or constantly being beset with expensive parking tickets. When all seems hopeless, Kermit ultimately decides that he wants to be a cab driver. When the other Babies wonder what kind of job that could be, Kermit shows them when an astronaut needs a ride to the Moon, and Kermit earns an expensive fare for doing so.
