COLD OPEN
Luis announces today's sponsors to the viewer, while Elmo and Telly play "Star Invaders Triangle Tag". Telly trips and breaks his triangle, which makes him upset. Luis fixes it with glue, but it comes apart when they start to play with it again. Luis makes it clear that Telly has to hold the triangle for five minutes (or until he counts to 300) while the glue dries. Telly does so, and Elmo helps him count. Luis welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and the opening theme sequence follows.

SCENE 1
Once Elmo and Telly have finished counting to 300, the glue has dried! They resume their game of Star Invaders, and run off. Just then, Lucy asks Luis to watch her tricycle while she goes inside Hooper's Store. Telly doesn't see the bike, so he trips and falls over it. He gets up, and notices that his right arm is in immense pain, and is swelling up ("Like Popeye!" says Elmo). Luis says that's how he felt when he broke his arm, which means it has now happened to Telly.

Luis reassures Telly that his broken arm will not fall off, and that the bones inside his arm are broken. And even though Luis can fix toasters, he can't fix Telly's arm, so he calls a taxi so they can take Telly to the hospital. Telly insists on bringing Freddy along, since he hurt his arm too. Once they leave, Elmo runs off to tell everyone what happened to Telly.

SCENE 3

For the bones to remain still, Telly's arm is put in a cast. He learns that he won't be able to play the tuba for six weeks, and feels bad about it. He realizes that everything changed in less than an hour. He lists the things he won't be able to do now that his arm is broken, and feels like it's his fault. Luis walks him through what happened earlier, and once Telly finds out it was Lucy who set the bike "in his way", he becomes angry at Lucy. Luis says it's no one's fault, and mentions when he himself broke his arm, he was angry at first, but his anger faded away and he learned to live with it. Telly laments, "I can't hold a crayon or write! You call that living?!" Luis gives him a crayon so he can try writing with his left hand. Telly struggles to write his name, but feels proud of it afterwards.
