Big Bird, Snuffy, and Gordon greet the viewer at Big Bird's nest. Big Bird and Snuffy announce that they'll be hanging out today while Gordon practices on the flute. He plays a few notes before leaving to practice, while Snuffy and Big Bird decide what to do first. Snuffy chooses to present the number of the day, but realizes he doesn't have the number with him. Not knowing what to do, they call Gordon for help, who gives them a piece of paper with the number 2 written on it. Now having their number, they decide to show a movie featuring it...

SCENE 3
Big Bird realizes they both just did two things without needing Gordon's help. Snuffy mentions how proud Gordon would be, so they both call him again and tell him what happened. Gordon appreciates the comment and returns to practicing, leaving the two wondering what to do again. Snuffy decides they're hungry, so they holler yet again. An exasperated Gordon explains how he wants to stick to practicing, but after learning that they're both in need of a snack, he generously decides to make them one. While they wait, Big Bird reads a book to Snuffy - a story about a furry, blue engineer...

Gordon arrives at the nest with their lunch: a cabbage sandwich for Snuffy, and a birdseed milkshake for Big Bird. Gordon tells them not to call him through the window so he can keep practicing. Big Bird compliments, saying he'll be the best flute player on Sesame Street! When they start to eat, Snuffy notices his sandwich isn't cut right. Instead of a triangle, it's cut like "...some other shape." Knowing they can't tell Gordon through the window, Big Bird decides they'll write him a note - an idea Snuffy finds genius.
