SCENE 1 Biff directs Sully while he's driving, causing him to back into the mailbox in front of 123 Sesame Street. The crash prompts Maria to come out and see what happened, but Biff is too busy overcomplicating the mess to explain himself to the "little lady". While Biff admits defeat, deciding he needs an extra crew to come in to clean up, Maria has uprighted the mailbox and tells Sully to clear the vehicle away. Biff is left dumbfounded... and without a ride.
