SCENE 4 Maria's on her way to make snowballs, but as she passes Oscar's trash can, she realizes she needs to go back upstairs to get her gloves first. Oscar the Grouch pops up and says she can borrow his. After sizing her hands up, he descends to retrieve his gloves, and Maria remarks how uncharacteristically nice he's being. He re-emerges with the gloves, and without looking, she puts them on while thanking him. When she realizes they're all filled with holes, Oscar explains they're good for getting someone grouchy with cold, wet hands. Maria changes her tune and says it won't matter for making one snowball to throw at Oscar. She keeps pelting him with snow, while Oscar complains.
