Elmo and Telly are in the courtyard admiring some potted flowers. They ask Luis if he would like to come pick some of them, but Luis says they shouldn't, as the sign instructs them not to do so. He notes that they enjoy smelling the flowers, and points out that if everyone picked them, there wouldn't be any left for other people to enjoy.

Observing that the dirt the flowers are planted in is very dry, Luis becomes concerned that they could die. Telly and Elmo are surprised to learn that the flowers are alive, and learn that they need water, just like animals and people do.

Luis brings back a watering can, and Big Bird arrives. Together, they sing "Don't Waste Water" as they water the flowers.
