Beginning at Mr. Macintosh's stand, she sings her way down the street greeting Mr. Hooper at Hooper's Store, through the yard where the kids are playing and Bob watches from his apartment window, and past the steps of 123 Sesame Street where Gordon and Susan.

She arrives at Oscar's trash can and knocks on the lid to get Oscar's attention. Once she's moved on, Oscar asks who that was, and notes that she's pretty and has a great voice, so he doesn't want to meet her.
