SCENE 2
While Gordon plays his flute inside his apartment, Barkley plays ball with T.J. and some other kids. Elmo asks Bob what it means to be deaf, since T.J. appears to be a normal kid in every other way. He explains that T.J. can't hear, and tells Elmo to imagine what the world would be like without any sound. He does so, and is relieved when he comes back to reality. He observes that T.J. is a really good ball player, and also that Sesame Street is a very noisy place.
