Gordon (played by Big Bird - "Make believe I have no feathers on top!") and Susan (played by Snuffy) wanted a baby, but they couldn't grow one in her belly. So, they decided to go to an adoption place, where they were introduced to an 11-month-old baby named Miles (played by Radar). But before they could take him home, they were asked a series of questions, such as: Are they nice people? Will they love the baby through good times and bad times? They answered yes to the questions, but the adoption agent (Elmo) still says they have to wait for a few days: "Don't call me, me call you!" So Susan and Gordon go home and wait a few days, and finally they get a call from the agent, who tells them to come back. When they do, he says they can have Miles! So they take Miles home, and "live happily ever after."
