SCENE 4
The three pig architects unveil models of three nests, made respectively out of straws, sticks, and bricks. Two of the models are accidentally blown away. Big Bird is dissatisfied by all of them; out of spite, the pigs suggest that he should have a bird design it, and storm out to build a new structure. Big Bird hits upon the idea of calling up his granny.

In the original broadcast, one of the pigs pitches the idea of building "twin nests on the Twin Towers". This dialogue was dubbed and changed to "a new hotel at the Best Nesterns" in all broadcasts subsequent to the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. This change is also present on the online release.
