SCENE 1 Maria recruits Oscar the Grouch to teach the concept of here and there. Oscar obliges, militantly barking orders to the viewer. Maria says there's a nicer way to do it, but Oscar grows tired of her standing here near his trash can, and there behind the construction doors of Big Bird's nest. Just as he's complaining about how dull it all is, a second Maria appears next to him, placing her both here and there.
