SCENE 2 cont'd
Big Bird continues to give Gulliver a tour, as he ducks out of sight of every human and monster. Big Bird recommends they get some birdseed milkshakes, but Gulliver's thirst retreats when he sees Alan is serving. Snuffy finally arrives and Gulliver is shocked to see Big Bird's best friend isn't a bird at all. He tells Snuffy that he doesn't want to play together because they're different species and Snuffy becomes sad. Big Bird tells Gulliver that he likes playing with Snuffy, even if he's not a bird. Gulliver learns that Snuffy likes saying the alphabet, just like he does. They all say the alphabet together and Gulliver apologizes for how he's acted. The other street residents appear and Gulliver becomes a little overwhelmed. They teach him can make new friends the same way he does with birds, by singing "How Do You Do?"
