SCENE 1
Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and spots a cute little Scottish terrier by the Furry Arms Hotel. He goes over to investigate, but the terrier resents being treated like a little puppy. After all, she's Renata Scottie, the world-renowned dog opera singer. She sings operas, which are stories set to opera music. She's sung works by canine greats such as Poochini, Wag-ner, and Johan Sebastian Bark. She's come to Sesame Street to look for a piano player; her singing would sound better if she had one. She wants one who knows all kinds of music, and likes dogs. Big Bird wonders, "Who do I know like that?"

Bob starts to pack for his big trip. Renata reassures Big Bird that Bob won't be gone from Sesame Street forever - he'll just be touring with her, visiting exotic places. Everyone on Sesame Street will still be able to keep in touch with him by mail and phone, and when he gets back, he'll have exciting stories to tell. Once Big Bird knows this, he feels better about Bob's leaving. He asks Bob if he can help him pack, which confuses Bob.
