Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN
"What's the Word on the Street?" -- predicament
SCENE
Big Bird and Elmo are excited, because they've got a special song for two friends, which they are. They count each other, and sing "One and One Make Two."

Note: Carol Spinney and Kevin Clash originally prerecorded the song, but on set, Clash had the idea of having Elmo sing it live. Spinney stuck with the prerecorded version, as he was unable to sing live from beneath Big Bird. But Elmo ended up singing the song live.[1]

SCENE
cont'd
They almost sing it again, when Abby Cadabby appears in a poof, and asks to join them. Suddenly, Big Bird realizes the song won't work this time, because it's a song for two, and if Abby joins them, they won't be two anymore, but three. What to do? Abby suggests making herself disappear, but that turns out to be not such a good idea.
SCENE
cont'd
The three friends decide they should ask Gabi what they should do. They explain their predicament, and Gabi suggests they sing a song for three instead of two. What a great idea!

SCENE
cont'd
Gabi leaves for class. Now the three friends have another problem: they don't know any songs about the number 3! They try to think of one, and suddenly Abby decides to call on the Three Little Pigs for help! They are of little benefit to the group, as they only know songs about pigs. Suddenly, the Pigs have to run, as the Big Bad Wolf follows them to yoga class.

SCENE
cont'd
The three friends are still stuck without a song. Just then, Big Bird remembers what his Granny Bird said: "You're a bird, and birds always have a song in their heart." Big Bird throws open his beak and lets a song come out, and the others join him in a rendition of a great song about 3.
SCENE
cont'd
Once their song is finished, an eager young lad stops by and asks to join them. Uh-oh ... now they need a song for four!
