SCENE 3
Big Bird has finished the music, and tells the band it's time to rehearse. Telly asks that if he can pretend to hold the rock since it's only a rehearsal, but Big Bird says that everything has to be perfect, so he has to carry the rock. The back-up singers can't seem to get in the right place (behind him), forcing Telly to be in immense pain.

SCENE 5
At Hooper's Store, Luis tells Mr. Handford about Big Bird's concert. Big Bird enters (after his announcer's introduction) and gives his biggest fan, Luis, a shout-out. He introduces his next number: his first one was a rock song, so his next song is a rock and roll song! The band performs "You Cannot Eat a Rock", about how he receives a roll from a baker. Telly now has to carry the roll and the rock.

SCENE 6
Luis waits at the bus stop, and once again finds himself the audience of Big Bird's rock concert. The band performs "Gimme Some Rock 'n Roll" with a clock and a sock (and camera effects). Telly is once again forced to provide visual aids. When the song is over, Big Bird hounds the "stage" and takes a bow, causing Luis to miss his bus.

SCENE 7
Big Bird announces that the tour is over. As the back-up singers leave, Big Bird helps Telly put down his rock. Big Bird notices how heavy it is, as Telly comments, "They shouldn't call it rock music--they should call it BOULDER music!!" Telly refuses to do any more rock-carrying for the next tour. Big Bird assures him that there won't be any more rock-carrying next time; instead, they'll be doing heavy metal. Telly faints, as Luis tells the sponsors.
