SCENE 1
Gordon welcomes the viewer, hoping to spend a quiet day reading the newspaper. Ernie approaches him, asking if he's available to duckie-sit Rubber Duckie while Ernie goes with Bert to the Pigeon Lover's Convention. Gordon accepts, thinking it'll be easy, but learns he needs to squeak Rubber Duckie in a particular, loud way. After many tries, he finally gets the right squeak, but learns there's many more ways to squeak him. Ernie has him try some fast squeaks.

After Gordon gets tired of squeaking, Ernie now shows him how Rubber Duckie likes to be held - on top of his head. Prairie Dawn briefly observes him, then splits when Ernie proposes she help duckie-sit. Gordon thinks he has everything he needs, until Ernie rushes back to the apartment to get his list of Rubber Duckie care requirements. "How do I get myself into these things?" Gordon sighs.

Ernie returns with a newly written list (he couldn't find the original). According to his list, the next step in duckie sitting is the alphabet. But, to say the alphabet with Rubber Duckie, he must do so while holding him on his head and squeaking him. Zoe and Brittany approach them and ask to sing too (having never sung the alphabet with someone with a duckie on their head).

SCENE 5
Gordon thinks he has everything he needs to know, but there's one thing left - putting Rubber Duckie down for his nap, which is accomplished by placing him to your hear, hopping on one foot and quacking. Gordon again refuses, claiming Rubber Duckie's merely a bath toy. Ernie takes offense, until Gordon apologizes and asks if there's an alternate way; Ernie tells him the other way to get him to sleep - putting him on your head.
