Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Chris and the Two-Headed Monster introduce three parts of the face - the eyes, nose and mouth.
SCENE Elmo and Chris take a selfie together before work. Grover then arrives, dressed as a nose. He states today is "Say Thank You to Your Nose Day" and he and Elmo look for people using their noses.

SCENE cont'd They first find Baby Bear, who is sampling the smell of some nearby geraniums. They also find Alan using his nose to breathe as he does some morning yoga. Grover spreads some pepper around to demonstrate another use - sneezing. Elmo sees how great the nose is now and the two perform a short musical tribute thanking the nose (along with some backup singers).

SCENE cont'd Grover and Elmo run into Abby in her garden and explain Grover's peculiar costume. Abby thinks the day should instead be "Say Thank You to Your Eyes Day" and poofs herself up an eye costume. They find Cookie Monster reading a book, something one couldn't do without eyes. Grover believes they should just stick to celebrating noses, but Elmo and Abby launch into a song thanking the eyes.

SCENE cont'd Grover and Abby argue over what body part to celebrate, as they come across Telly having some soup at Hooper's Store. Telly believes that it shouldn't be either "Say Thank You to Your Nose" or "Say Thank You to Your Eyes" day. Instead, he believes today should honor the mouth and explains the uses of the mouth.

SCENE cont'd Chris finds the whole group arguing over the body parts and has them think of a way they can thank all the body parts at once. Elmo realizes all the parts on on the face and grabs a face costume, suggesting they celebrate "Say Thank You to Your Face Day." They sing another song about it and Chris takes a selfie with all of them.

Muppets Elmo and the gang introduce the letter of the day, F, with a song and dance.

Muppets Smart Cookies: Dat Face
The Smart Cookies team arrives at the photo shoot for Giselle Biscotti, famous cookie model (and object of Figby's affections). The Crumb infiltrates the studio and releases his "Sneeze Danish," which spreads pepper everywhere. Everyone sneeze uncontrollably, and Giselle continuously sneezes off parts of her face. Miss Fortune receives a clue that tells them something that cleans a house can stop the danish. Cookie Monster learns to stop and think and find the perfect solution - a vacuum cleaner, which sucks up the danish and pepper (along with Giselle's face).
Muppets Count von Count and friends sing and stomp to find the number of the day - 9.
