SCENE 1 While walking down Sesame Street, Big Bird overhears his friends’ conversations. Bob and Susan talk about someone who’s “tall and cute, but awkward” and “bumps into everything”. In the Fix-it Shop, Luis complains about all the feathers on the floor. In Hooper's Store, Maria talks on the phone about getting rid of a nest; she’s sure no one’s gonna need it. Big Bird assumes he is no longer wanted around here, and goes home to pack.

SCENE 1
cont'd
The adults encounter Big Bird as he runs away, dragging his nest and a suitcase. He repeats to them what he heard them saying, and they all correct him: Susan and Bob were talking about Gordon, whom Susan says can’t dance; Luis was complaining about the feathers that fell out of a pillow he was trying to fix; and Maria was talking about an abandoned bird’s nest in the awning above Hooper’s. Big Bird is relieved.
