Since Elmo's mommy and Abby's Fairy Godmommy are at their book club, Louie declares it's daddy and kids night. The youngsters look forward to playing, but Louie announces they'll have dinner first. Rudy is a little confused, since at their house, they always play before dinner. Freddy tells him that different families do things their own way and maybe, they'll like Elmo's family routine.

SCENE 1 cont'd Rudy is confused again when the dinner preparations start, as Louie puts it up to a vote, which they don't do at his house either. Louie offers everyone fish sticks with mashed potatoes (or "smushed potatoes" as Elmo puts it) or pizza with salad. The pizza wins the vote. Louie brings out the toppings to play a round of "One of These Things." Abby guesses the correct answer and Louie allows a second round so Rudy can find an alternate answer. Louie prepares the pizzas, making two separate pies for the kids and daddies (which will have peppers).
