Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Luis welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and tells Telly Monster to be careful not to break his vase. He hears the phone ring in the Fix-it Shop, and goes inside to answer it. While he's gone, Telly admires the swirly designs on the vase, waves his hands around, and accidentally knocks the vase to the ground, where it shatters. He shows Roxie Marie what he did and, thinking that Luis will yell at him for breaking the vase, runs away in fear.
Luis comes back outside and notices the remains of the vase on the ground. Roxie explains to him that Telly feels very guilty about it, and thinks Luis will yell at him, but Luis assures her that he won't - it was an accident. Roxie is impressed at how Luis handles these situations - "If I ever break somethin', I hope it's somethin' of yours."
SCENE 2 Luis tells Gordon and Savion to keep an eye out for Telly and tell him that Luis is looking for him, but isn't mad at him.
Meanwhile, the Amazing Mumford is about to eat his lunch, when Telly begs for Mumford to make him invisible, so Luis won't find him and yell at him for breaking the vase. Mumford agrees to do so, but succeeds at making everything invisible except Telly. Savion spots Telly and tells him that Luis is looking for him, and Telly runs away screaming again.
SCENE 3 To hide from Luis, Telly disguises himself as a banana, and is mistaken for one by Joey and Davey Monkey. Gordon reports to Telly that Luis is looking for him, and Telly quickly "splits."

SCENE 4 Telly has packed up his suitcase, and is ready to run away from Sesame Street. Rosita catches up with him, and begs him not to run away. She tells him a story: when she was a little monster, she accidentally spilled her bowl of oatmeal and broke the bowl. She hid under the bed, but knew she couldn't stay there forever, so she told her mami the truth, and she forgave her. Telly realizes he should do the same with Luis, and goes off to look for him.
Telly finds Luis, and tells him the truth. Instead of yelling at him, Luis invites him over to Hooper's for a soda.
