SCENE 1
Big Bird welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street. He walks over to the arbor, spots Gina reading a book, and suddenly wants Gina to read to him. She doesn't have time to do so, because the book she's reading is a college textbook - she's going to school to learn how to be a veterinarian. Big Bird asks her what a veterinarian is, and she narrates a film of a veterinarian examining various animals, including a puppy and a rabbit.

Gina thinks she finally has some peace and quiet, when Oscar approaches her with a problem: his elephant Fluffy has a splinter in her foot. Oscar told Fluffy not to go to the playground barefoot but she didn't listen; now she's going crazy. Eventually Gina agrees to help. She goes down into Oscar's trash can through the back door and looks for Fluffy in the dark, while bumping into various other animals inside. She finds Fluffy and successfully removes the splinter with some elephants' tweezers. Fluffy shows gratitude with a big wet trunk-kiss!
