3010b
COLD OPEN
At Hooper's, Big Bird realizes he has to return a library book, and tells Gina to tell Cyranose de Bergerac, the world's greatest rhymer, that he'll be back soon. Gina becomes excited when she finds out he's coming, but Big Bird explains that Cyranose is very sensitive to the word "nose" - hearing that word makes him go into a frenzy, swishing his nose back and forth like a sword. The subject of the book Big Bird has to return happens to involve today's sponsors. He goes off, and reminds them not to say "nose".
3010c
SCENE 1
Gina swats a pesky fly away as she, Elmo, and two other kids wait for Cyranose's arrival. Cyranose makes an heroic entrance into Hooper's, as he swishes his nose around and exclaims triumphantly. He says he will wait for Big Bird, and asks Gina for a cup of coffee. "What a charming bistro," he observes. He accidentally knocks the salt down with his n- ... appendage, which Gina stops Elmo from pointing out. Gina gives him the coffee, and suddenly balks when she sees the fly land on Cyranose. Everyone hesitantly tries to indicate where the fly is without saying ... the word, but Cyranose is clueless.

SCENE 5
Maria advises Oscar not to say the word in front of Cyranose, and it looks to Maria like he will at first, but he says he won't. Cyranose shows up, and asks Maria who she was talking to. He would like to meet Oscar (who tries to restrain himself), but Maria advises against it. Oscar can take it no longer: he pops out and says "Nose! Nose nose nose nose!" Cyranose throws another fit, but this time his nose gets stuck inside a slit in the side of Oscar's trash can. Maria has difficulty getting him unstuck, and confronts him head-on about his anger towards that word. She suggests that whoever says that word isn't always talking about his ... smeller, which is just as good as anyone else's - it only looks different. She lists its uses, but he still isn't convinced of his ... smelller's worthiness. She leaves to get Luis.
