Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Zoe looks for someone to play with and finds Baby Bear, who is drawing a picture of Gabi (as a surprise gift for her mom). Zoe wants to be involved, so they assign her to the position of lookout, to make sure the surprise won't be ruined. Zoe starts crowding Baby Bear's space, thinking her role is to look at the picture. Gabi begins thinking of a way to teach Zoe the proper way to be a lookout.

SCENE 2 To illustrate the job of lookout, Gabi has Baby Bear pretend to be Zoe (and vice verse) so she can learn what to do. Bob is roped into playing Gabi in this scenario. When Zoe gets the message, she starts "woo-woo"-ing over and over (the signal for when Maria is coming), claiming to find it much more fun than just standing around and watching. Gabi has another idea and leaves, so Zoe passes the time by wooing some more.
