Picture Segment Description
2630streetstory1
SCENE 1
Oscar the Grouch is distraught because Irvine won't say "bleah." Bob doesn't think anything is wrong with her: she is smiling and laughing, and she gives him a kiss. He suggests that she just doesn't feel like being grouchy--maybe she woke up on the right side of the bed. Oscar, however, recognizes the symptoms of the grouch flu. He calls Doctor Kvetch, who says she should rest, drink fluids, and stay away from nice people. Oscar tells Bob to get lost.
