SCENE 1 As Bob and Grover greet the viewer, Sam the Robot arrives on the scene. Grover, never having seen the living machine before, is scared out of his skin. Bob tries to ease Grover's fears by introducing Grover to the different parts of Sam, such as his gumball machine, telephone and his question-answering feature. Grover feels much more comfortable now, but Sam begins to panic when he learns Grover is a monster.
