SCENE 1
Susan finds Big Bird packing his toys for a trip and asks where he is going. He says he is going on his honeymoon. She explains that a honeymoon is a special vacation for two people who have just gotten married. Undeterred, he says that since his will be an imaginary one, he can take anybody he wants. He asks her, and notes that since he packed honey and a picture of a moon, she'll probably have more fun on this one than the real one she took with Gordon.
