SCENE 1 At Hooper's Store, Grover is hesitant to aid Big Bird in a lesson on subtraction (using heavy bags), since he usually gets the short end of the stick. Big Bird assures him that he will do the hard part, while Grover will do the easy part this time. However, to Big Bird, picking up the heavy bags is the easy part, and subtracting is the hard part. Thus, Big Bird subtracts two bags from three and hands them to Grover, leaving one on the counter. Next, Big Bird decides to demonstrate addition. Grover says that this time, Big Bird can do the lifting - but instead, he adds the third bag to Grover’s load!
