Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Rosita and Prairie Dawn both have exciting news, so they take turns telling the viewer. Prairie starts off by presenting the sponsors, which Rosita considers more exciting than her news: practicing flying.

SCENE 1 Rosita explains to Prairie and Gordon how her entire family has the ability to fly because of their wings. Today, Rosita will try some flying, though she admits she has trouble with landings. She demonstrates and lands on top of Prairie. She steps out of the way so Rosita can try again, but she gets landed on again. Rosita decides to give up to keep her friend safe, but Gordon recommends she practice and find something to aim her landings toward. Prairie goes to get a helmet.
