Abby remembers the right spell this time, and successfully multiplies the number of hats on their heads -- which are stacked so high that they have trouble keeping their balance, having to run as they sway back and forth. Alan and Chris chase them, causing Grover's block tower to get knocked over.

The Hat Check Girl counts the hats by fives, and finds that each head was able to withstand 30 hats. Elmo and Zoe were tied once again, which makes them proud. They go off to play another game -- one which doesn't involve hats.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0
At a high school gym, some cheerleading chickens (and Horatio the Elephant) attempt their balancing move, but topple over when the chickens land onto Horatio's arm. Super Grover 2.0 arrives on the scene and diagnoses Horatio with a floppy arm and places all the chickens on his "stronger" arm. This doesn't work, so Grover divides the chickens into twos and places a pair on both arms, causing Horatio to tip over once more. Grover searches his utility sock and finds what turns out to be a scale. The largest chicken finds he weighs the same as the three others, so they now know how they can perfectly balance themselves.
