SCENE 5
Big Bird's search in the park has been fruitless. He sits on a bench, admiring a picture of Abelardo, and sadly sings "My Cousin, My Friend." Unbeknownst to him, Abelardo is sitting just on the opposite side of the wall, singing along in Spanish to Big Bird's photo. The two get up to leave and finally run into each other. Everyone gathers around for their delayed reunion.
