SCENE 1
Elmo and Ruthie welcome the viewer to Sesame Street. Ruthie explains to Elmo what kind of stuff her store sells - old stuff that people don't need anymore (hence the name "Finders Keepers"). She displays some of her "new old" stuff, including a toy fire engine, and a lemonade pitcher with lemons painted on it. Linda comes by, and seems to really like the pitcher. Elmo tries to get her attention, but Ruthie reminds Elmo that Linda is deaf, and communicates with sign language.

Linda says she doesn't know if she wants to buy the pitcher yet, and will let Ruthie know after she walks Barkley. Linda leaves, and Elmo now understands how to communicate with Linda. He knows how to write a little, but he doesn't know sign language. Ruthie points to the screen and tells him to "watch this ..."
