SCENE 1
Big Bird greets the viewer, then ambles over to the Fix-It Shop to find out what's going on. Luis, Susan, and Linda are excited about the party Bob is holding. Big Bird thinks he's invited, but Susan explains it's a grown-up party, so he isn't invited. Big Bird is upset and hurt. When Bob arrives, Big Bird confronts him with a spiteful rendition of "Three of These Things" with him and the other adults. When Bob correctly guesses Big Bird's the odd one out, Big Bird storms off in a huff, with Bob trying to catch up and explain.

SCENE 2
Big Bird is still seething about not being able to go to the party. Snuffy tells him that Bob was right: It's a grown-up party, so Big Bird wouldn't have any fun. He says his parents (in particular his mother) hold parties all the time, and all they're about is "emptying and filling" (of the refreshments, that is) Big Bird remains stubborn, saying it still sounds like fun.

Big Bird is still moping because he's thinking of all the fun stuff the grown-ups are going to do at the party, like play musical chairs.

Bob is setting up for the party when the Rodriguezes arrive, and Big Bird calls him with a song: "Three of These Things" (again). Of course, Bob guesses Gabi is the odd one out, and explains to Big Bird that Maria and Luis couldn't find a babysitter in time for the party. Bob says that he thought Big Bird would be bored if he came to the party, but he's more than welcome to come if he wants. Big Bird excitedly rushes over.
