Long and short time

Here's another sketch from the listing at the CTW archives that I can't place -- a four-part sketch with Cookie Monster and Ernie demonstrating a long time and a short time. Anybody have a lead on this one? -- Danny (talk) 04:31, 10 January 2007 (UTC)

That's probably the 4-part one where Ernie is waiting for a phone call from Bert, and Cookie comes in and asks if he can use the phone for a "short time" to call his mommy. Ernie gets more and more frustrated as Cookie keeps on talking and talking. He demonstrates how far he can count, and even a box of cookies won't distract him, he just keeps on talking while he eats. When he finally hangs up and Ernie starts shouting at him ("You promised it would be a short time, but you've been talking for a really long time!"), Cookie eats the telephone - at which point Bert calls and Ernie has to shout into Cookie Monster's mouth to reach him. -- Jogchem 09:28, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
That's it! Thank you! -- Danny (talk) 11:19, 10 January 2007 (UTC)
