SCENE 3

Mr. Snuffleupagus has arrived, and the cast hold balloons to celebrate the completion of the nest. Just as Big Bird is about to step into it, however, a whistle blows and the Big Bad Wolf emerges on the spot under the guise of "City Nest Inspector." He inspects the nest and notes that the mud is still wet. As a consequence he cautions that the nest is unsafe, places a "CLOSED" sign on it, and instructs Big Bird to call him back when the mud dries.

SCENE 4

Big Bird telephones the Big Bad Wolf, who is surprised by how quickly he is called to reinspect the nest. After blowing his way in (to the unfortunate consequence of Telly), the wolf declares the nest dry, and his hurricane test confirms its safety and wind resistance. After placing a new "OPEN" sign on the nest, he inquires how they managed to dry the nest so quickly. To answer him Snuffleupagus blows him away, highly impressing the wolf, who invites him to join his line of work.

SCENE 5

With his nest complete, Big Bird is ready to step in. He notes how everyone's friendship and cooperation helped speed the process dramatically, and sings "I Want to Thank You for Being My Friends." His friends, in turn, are equally thankful back. Big Bird notes that Radar is missing, but fortunately his teddy bear is immediately found and presented to him. With the last complications resolved, Big Bird sits in his nest, thankful to be home.
