COLD OPEN
Snuffy is about to introduce today's sponsors, but when he says "Hi", that triggers an alarm, which means it's time for another one of Sonny Friendly's traveling game shows!! This one is called "Duck for a Day", and since Snuffy said the secret word ("Hi"), he has to answer a question: what letters and number will be seen on Sesame Street today? Gina warns him that he probably won't win anything because Sonny's prizes are usually bad, but Snuffy immediately knows the answer, so he wins! The prize this time is that he gets to spend the whole day pretending to be a duck. Some kids bring over a duck suit big enough for a Snuffleupagus, and Sonny tells him that if he can be convincing enough as a duck, he'll win an even bigger prize.

SCENE 1
Snuffy is finally dressed as a duck, and hopes that he'll win today's prize. He tries quacking and jumping up and down, but only gets ridiculed by two passers-by. He asks Gina to take the costume off, but she still believes he can learn to be a duck. So does Big Bird, who introduces Snuffy to his duck friend, Duffy. Big Bird says Duffy will teach him how to be a duck, and Big Bird will translate what he says.

Duffy shows Snuffy (and the other duck school students) how to walk like a duck. Snuffy tries it himself, but causes the ground to quake when he jumps like a frog. Big Bird shows him that ducks walk side to side (it's called "waddling"), and Snuffy finally gets it. However, Gracie, the little duckling, blows a raspberry, indicating that Snuffy needs to get better at quacking.

SCENE 3
Duffy attempts to teach Snuffy how to quack. Big Bird points out that he's just saying "quack" instead of attempting to make the sound. He tries saying a sentence, with more "wak-waks", and with practice, starts to sound exactly like a duck ("By George, I've got it!"). He is so good at quacking now that Gracie mistakes him for her mama.

SCENE 5
Big Bird, Snuffy and Gina wait for Sonny to come back yet, noticing that it's almost time to say goodbye. As it turns out, "goodbye" is the other secret word! Sonny pops up and, with the help of a duck-o-meter, makes sure that Snuffy can flawlessly portray a duck. Snuffy does his thing, and at first the duck-o-meter goes to 8, but he gets one more chance, and it goes up to 10 when the audience applauds after seeing Snuffy's quacking attract little Gracie.
