SCENE 1
Telly welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and admits that it's a pretty quiet day. Suddenly, he hears a tingling sound, along with a variation of "Also sprach Zarathustra," and then spots a giant number 11 in the courtyard! He is awestruck by this marvelous number (and the great music that comes with it) - it inspires him to make a triumphant count to 11. Then, the 11 fades away, and Telly makes sure the viewer also saw it, and calls for Luis.

SCENE 2
Telly tells Luis about the 11 he saw, and Luis thinks it's no big deal - they've seen 11s on Sesame Street before. This number 11 is special, though: it comes with great music that makes Telly feel so ... eleven-y. He then begins to notice 11s on Luis: two pencils in his pocket, two of his pointy fingers, and even his legs, all of which look like a number 11. He tries to imitate the music that came with the 11 he saw, but Luis says he has to get back to work. Right after he leaves, Telly sees the 11 again, and calls Luis, but he doesn't come.
