SCENE 1
Gina welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, where it's a really hot day today. Telly, dressed as a penguin, waddles by with three other penguins, on his way to the penguin party (aka the "Snow Ball") at the Furry Arms Hotel, where he and the penguins will sing, dance, slide on ice, and eat fish. Wolfgang goes crazy when he hears there will be fish, but the penguins tell him to stay away. Telly says he'll bring Wolfgang back some fish, and Gina goes inside Hooper's to turn on the air conditioner.

SCENE 3
Telly discovers that Wolfgang has been following them to the hotel, and warns Humphrey and Ingrid about it. They assure Telly that they'll give the old heave-ho to Wolfgang, but when he does come, Humphrey asks him if he's a penguin, then tells him to stand next to a cutout picture of a penguin. They conclude that he's not a penguin, because penguins are black and white. Wolfgang gets inspired, and runs off.

Sherry agrees with the penguins, so Humphrey turns it up to 13, one notch below full blast. The two tenants tell him to turn it down, because they want to get warm again. Ingrid suggests that they get warm by dancing with the penguins, so they reluctantly go along with it and "Do the Penguin."

Gina, having bundled herself up in a now-freezing Hooper's with a bunch of frisky penguins, calls the Furry Arms and asks Maria and Luis if the AC is working there again. When she hangs up, one of the penguins invites her to play a "One of These Things" game with four penguins - one of which has a clown nose on its beak, and one of which (unbeknownst to everyone but Gina) is Wolfgang in disguise. When they realize he's a seal, chaos almost ensues, until Maria and Luis come back in to report that the AC at the Furry Arms is now fixed. The penguins slide back to the hotel.
