SCENE 1 Gordon wheels a shopping cart of groceries back to 123 Sesame Street. He can't take them all in at once, so he asks Big Bird and Grover to keep an eye on it while he goes inside. They both each think Gordon was referring to just them and they fight over the cart, causing it to spill over. Gordon returns and tells them he wanted them both to watch the cart. They apologize and Gordon asks them to help clean up the mess. They nearly argue again over who Gordon was talking to, but now politely can't agree on who should start cleaning first.
