Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Telly introduces a list of things he plans to demonstrate today, but his mommy calls him back home to pick up his toys. He hands off the list to Oscar, asking him to do everything. Oscar initially refuses, but then changes his mind...
SCENE 1 First on the list is the number of the day - 4. Oscar stares at the sky using his binoculars. Soon, Prairie Dawn, Gina, Luis and Buster the Horse start looking up too. Oscar counts 4 suckers looking at nothing and becoming annoyed.
Cartoon Number Guy: ‘’’How Many Elephants Can You Fit in a Room?’’’ The answer is 4.

Film / Animation A class makes up a story about going to the zoo, which is told through animation based on the kids’ drawings.
(EKA: Episode 3373)
SCENE 2 Next on the list is the parts of the body. Oscar tells Celina she has something on her elbows, then neck, nose and ears. Celina asks what it is and Oscar answers - skin.

SCENE 3 Gina passes by Oscar's trash can and sees an AGUA sign. She recalls that was part of Telly's list and is sure Oscar will demonstrate it by squirting her with a hose or some other Grouchy way. Oscar claims he won't do that; he knew someone would talk about the word for him by putting the sign up and denies using any Grouch method of getting her wet. He instead uses the squirting flower next to his can.
SCENE 4 Oscar isn't sure what the next thing on Telly's list is - "beso." Celina and Gina define it for him (Spanish for "kiss") and he thusly refuses to talk about it. They do the demonstrating for him by covering him in kisses.
Cartoon The letters in the word BESO kiss each other. (new sting added)

Insert Maria encounters Telly making name tags for himself, Kingston and Mara. They just heard a story which Kingston wrote, about the history of name tags, and ask Maria to read it again. In the story, a king (Telly) throws a party, but doesn't know everyone's name, which drives his guests away. His royal writer (Kingston) gets the idea to write all the guests' names down on small pieces of paper and stick them on their chest, which improves the party greatly. When Maria finishes reading the story, Telly offers to make a name tag for Maria, but she turns it down, claiming that everyone on Sesame Street knows her name. Just then, two tourists pass by and introduce themselves to everyone who has a name tag, so Maria makes one for herself.

SCENE 5 Big Bird introduces Snuffy's puppet Gus, who sings "My Rhyming Song." Big Bird thinks the song was too short, so Gus sings a longer song about rhyming the word "you."
Song "It's Time for a Rhyme"
(First: Episode 3151)

SCENE 6 Telly returns and Oscar gives the list back. Oscar states he didn't do the talking for the "beso" demonstration, so Telly does it by kissing Oscar some more. Telly then announces the sponsors, as Oscar complains about them.
