SCENE 3 Oscar's mom is still upset over what she's witnessed during her visit. Oscar tries to cheer her up, as he witnesses Big Bird approaching and hides under his can (knowing that BB would do something nice to her). Big Bird notices his mom and mistakes her for her son. Big Bird thought it was another one of Oscar's tricks until he finally realized that that's really his mother. Big Bird leaves for a minute and comes back with a MOM sign and sticks it on her so people don't mistake her for her son.
