Big Bird is bored because he has nothing to do. He asks everyone he meets if he can help them to do something, and they all decline his offer. Finally, Luis, who is fixing a bike, asks him to borrow a screwdriver.

By the time he delivers the screwdriver to Luis, he's no longer bored; he's exhausted.
