Inside the Fix-It Shop, Maria prepares a list on her computer. She's about to print it, when she has to go to the back room to check on something. The Martians appear and observe the device, concluding it's a computer. They press a few keys, activating the printer. As they go off and hide, Big Bird enters. Maria thinks he started the printer, but he insists he didn't. She lets him watch over the store while she returns to the back, asking him to not touch anything. He feels insulted with her lack of trust and goes back to talk with her.
