SCENE 4
After shaking and moonwalking, the Spaceketeers think they're ready to go to the moon - but they realize they don't have a spaceship. Lexine suggests that they use their imaginations, and they all board the pretend spaceship. Just like he did at WASA, The Count provides the countdown for them. The pretend ship blasts off, and the Spaceketeers wiggle around until the ship stops shaking. Elmo steers the ship as they float around in pretend space, avoiding the shooting stars. Finally, the ship lands on the moon, and they all get out and walk upon the moon slowly. After moonwalking, they get back into their ship, shake as it takes off, shake as it lands, and come out of it singing their song as they land on Earth.

At night, everyone gathers on the roof top to look up into space via telescope. Elmo thinks the moon looks like a big white pizza, and Rosita agrees. All the Spaceketeers think they had a great day today, and Gordon suggests that maybe someday they'll be real astronauts. They sing their theme song once again, and wish Slimey good luck in space.
