SCENE 2 Celina teaches the young monsters that the waltz follows a counting rhythm of "one-two-three." She plays a waltz tape and demonstrates. The monsters get caught up in the counting that they keep counting instead of dancing.
SCENE 3 Celina adds that cooperation is needed to perform the waltz. The monsters think they have the dance down pat, but Elmo wishes they had outfits just like Maria and Luis had on.
SCENE 4 Zoe and Elmo go to Finders Keepers and ask for outfits just like Maria and Luis'. Ruthie gets some Fix-It-Shop-appropriate work outfits, when the monsters describe the nice outfits they were previously wearing. Ruthie just happens to have them in their size.

SCENE 5 Maria, Luis and several others gather at the dance studio, where the monsters show off their waltz. Maria comments Zoe's dress is prettier than hers. Everyone dances to a waltz arrangement of the theme as Benny Rabbit announces the sponsors.
