SCENE 1
The scene opens with Maria testing a toaster. She welcomes the viewers after a piece of toast flies in her face. Elmo stops by, and asks Maria to read him a story. Maria points out that she's already read that book to him ten times. Elmo replies, "Let's make it eleven!" Maria finally agrees to read Elmo his book, Lucy the Lazy Lizard - a book with a lot of L words in it. (This book is later read by Murray Monster in the fourth Sesame Street podcast.)

SCENE 1, cont'd
After Maria finishes reading to Elmo, he wants to read the story to Telly Monster. So he goes and looks for Telly, only to find him playing with his train set, taking his triangles to Toronto. Telly is too busy playing with the train to have Elmo read to him, even though Elmo says it's the greatest story in the world.

SCENE 1, cont'd
Elmo almost gives up, when he hears Telly trying to decide where to take his triangles next. Elmo suggests Lackawana (where Lucy the Lazy Lizard lives in the story). Telly thinks it's a great name and calls out, "All aboard triangles going to Lackawana!" And as Telly starts moving the train, Elmo warns him that the train is going to hit Lucy the Lazy Lizard lying on a log in the middle of the train track (according to the story). Telly becomes frightened, but Elmo reassures him that Lucy is the strongest lizard in Lackawana, so as the train goes over the tracks, Lucy will lift the tracks, so the train will go right over her head. Telly whistles (with a whistle) for joy knowing that Lucy is safe. He asks Elmo where he got such an amazing train story. Elmo shows him the book, and Telly is now all ears. But Elmo doesn't need the book - he knows the story by heart.

Game Show: Meal or No Meal, hosted by Howie Eatswell
Howie tells contestant Sadie Schwartzbaum that she must choose which dish (out of five) she thinks must have a healthy, delicious meal under the lid. She chooses dish #3, but since this game is won by process of elimination, she has to choose another dish to be revealed. She picks #4, which turns out to be a pack of chewing gum (not a meal). Suddenly, Howie receives a phone call from the baker (silhouetted behind a paper wall), who is offering Sadie a cookie. She turns down the offer, since a cookie is not a meal. She then picks dish #1, which is an ice cream sundae (again, not a meal). The "mystery" baker calls again, and offers Sadie five cookies. She finds this offer hard to turn down, but does so anyway. Sadie picks dish #5, which is a candy bar (still not a meal). Then the baker offers a dozen cookies to Sadie. She turns down the offer yet again, because cookies would spoil her appetite. Now that they're down to two dishes, Howie reveals to the crowd what's under dish #3 (the dish Sadie chose first): a peanut butter sandwich, carrot sticks, an apple and a glass of milk, all of which count as a meal! Then Howie asks to see what's on dish #2, which turns out to be 100 cookies. "Who could eat 100 cookies?" Sadie wonders. The baker can resist no longer, bursts through the screen, eats all the cookies, and steals the button and Howie's cellphone, while Sadie enjoys her meal. Howie cries, "I had a successful run!!"
