SCENE 4
Now in front of Finders Keepers, Big Bird helps Snuffy blow his snuffle again. Snuffy finishes his story: he felt frustrated about causing an snuffle-earthquake every time he tap-danced, so he decided to give up, which makes him sad. Big Bird gives him a pep talk, reminding him of how many people believe in him. His confidence restored, Snuffy runs off to practice some more. Big Bird tells Ruthie about what he just told Snuffy to do, and she rushes back into the store as the next snuffle-earthquake begins.
