Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Big Bird and Maria are in the Fix-It Shop, when a man named Mr. Quincy enters. He wants his 10-second toaster fixed and demonstrates the problem: the toast is ready after 9 seconds. Maria figures he's the type of guy who likes things working exactly as they should and states she'll have it fixed in 10 minutes. Big Bird suggests she hold herself to that.
SCENE 2 Maria has fixed the toaster and the toast is ready after exactly 10 seconds. Mr. Quincy is happy to have his toaster fixed and his scheduled breakfast can continue as normal once more.
SCENE 3 Maria runs into Mary, who's little lamb has stopped following her. Maria helps demonstrate the different things the lamb would do the same as Mary. She compliments Maria on her following abilities and asks if she can star following her. Maria states she's too busy to follow Mary, so Mary decides to follow Maria.
SCENE 4 Mr. Quincy heads to Hooper's Store for his noon lunch and Big Bird warns Mr. Handford about his pickiness. Mr. Quincy orders the foot-long hot dog, taking out his ruler to make sure it's a foot long. The first hot dog is a tad short, and the second is a tad too long. He finally gets a hot dog that's exactly 1 foot long, but he requests the bun be just as long.
SCENE 5 Mary and Maria finish fixing their respective radios, when Mary decides she's not going to follow Maria anymore and instead spend some time on her own. She does join her in announcing the sponsors.
