As Baby Bear gives a speech on what a great friend Ralphie is, he doesn't notice Ralphie flying away. He looks around for Ralphie, and quickly becomes distressed. He calls out Ralphie's name, and hears a squawk from the distance, followed by "Welcome to Sesame Stweet." Alan pinpoints where it's coming from.

Just then, a magazine is delivered to Baby Bear. It's the latest issue of Parroting, the #1 magazine for anyone who wants to be an expert on parrots.
