Bert decides to explore a tunnel while Ernie looks at the statues, and then the Ernie statue starts tapping and talking to Ernie. But when Ernie calls Bert back to the room, the statue doesn't move.

SCENE 2
Big Bird is sad because realizes that Snuffy isn't going to camp with him. The adults are sad too, because they are going to miss Big Bird. Big Bird suggests that maybe he shouldn't go, but they help him to feel better. He then returns to his nest and reassures Snuffy that it's okay to be sad... which is also a good reason for the both of them to cry together.
