SCENE 4
(insert)
DVD release
Big Bird announces that Grover will demonstrate the number 2 by doing two chin-ups. He does it, but then Big Bird asks him to do two more sets, to make sure the audience gets it. When Big Bird thinks they've got it, he announces that Grover will now demonstrate the number 18! Grover faints.
(First: Episode 0547)

On the Old School: Volume 1 DVD release of the episode, this scene replaces the scene with Big Bird and Krystal playing store.

SCENE 6
DVD release
Maria reads while David and the kids play in the Arbor. Big Bird and Grover announce the sponsors (C, U and 2, which reminds Grover of the chin-ups from earlier).

Due to clearance issues, the Stevie Wonder insert was replaced on the Old School: Volume 1 DVD release with this closing from another episode. This ending comes from Episode 0547, an episode that originally featured Grover's chin-up demonstration, as reference is made to it here.
