SCENE 3 "The Wide World of Sesame Street" resumes, where Telly hides under a bag of hot dog buns on Willy's hot dog cart. He observes Linda buying a hot dog, then going on the stoop to eat it. Barkley looks at it longingly, so she breaks off a piece of the wiener and gives it to him. This winds up happening again and again until all she has left is an empty bun. Barkley trots over to the stand and brings back a whole string of wieners, with an angry Willy following. Linda bashfully gives him some money and the two enjoy their lunch. Telly tries to throw to a break, when Willy catches him hiding in his stand and accuses him of stealing as well.
