SCENE 1
In the vacant lot-turned-garden, everyone is gathered as Oscar and Bruno approach. Susan explains Mayor David Dinkins will be presenting Gordon with a citizen's award for the work he's done turning the lot into a garden. She points out the different people who are practicing for Dinkins' arrival: Bob rehearses with his monster band (including Telly), Gordon practices his speech, Jelani and the kids practice holding their "WELCOME" sign and Snuffy practices the alphabet, with Big Bird's help (he's heard the mayor is an alphabet fan). Oscar practices too: his laugh for when things go wrong.
