SCENE 2
Big Bird and Emily find Grover has opened a new popcorn stand and he has everything planned out: he has his machine, small and large boxes and a sign. But, he's lacking one thing: popcorn; he can't get the machine to pop any. Emily points out it's not turned on and shows him the button. Nothing happens initially, until Grover remembers the cardinal rule: count to 20 ("What else would you do while you wait for corn to pop?"). Now that the popcorn is popping, he gives Emily some, on the house for helping him. But soon, Grover is met with a small flood starting to arise.
SCENE 2 cont'd
Ernie visits the stand, where Grover is up to his elbows in popcorn; the machine is popping faster than he can scoop. Ernie helps him out by promoting the stand so that more people will help empty his readily growing stock.
SCENE 2 cont'd
Ernie turns the stand on to some Honkers and pigs. He tries convincing Lulu, but she prefers pretzels. Ernie states trying new foods is fun and she takes a sample of his popcorn, then gobbles his whole box. She still likes pretzels and heads off to find one, with Ernie and the pigs following.


SCENE 2 cont'd
Grover calls for help, now completely engulfed by his popcorn. Bob and Linda dig him out and point out the solution - turn the machine off! Bob presses the button and the corn stops popping, to Grover's relief. Ernie brings back several chickens, who wildly dig into the popcorn. Grover, however, has no intention of making any more, saying he's "too pooped to pop."
