SCENE 2
Big Bird lays down the agenda for their evening – first a snack, then a song then sleep. However, the snack Big Bird has prepared is birdseed cookies, which Ernie doesn’t want to eat (as he’s not a bird). They call Gordon for help, who provides a banana for Ernie. Ernie begins cracking jokes about the banana (even pretending it’s a phone). They hear a phone ringing (which Ernie believes is his banana), but it turns out to be Big Bird’s phone. The caller is Bert, who is about to perform a pigeon dance…
