In the courtyard, Gordon helps Elmo and some kids make a tunnel with blocks for a toy train to go through. "Triangle Guy" emerges and explains his purpose, then laments that he hasn't found a triangle to save in the two days he's been around. Gordon then places a triangle on top of the block tower, then he and Elmo pretend it needs to be rescued before the train crashes into the tower. Triangle Guy worries at first, then saves the triangle just in time. He whooshes off to find more triangles to save.
