SCENE 2 Grover hides behind the stoop of 123 Sesame Street in an attempt to demonstrate scary. When he's approached separately by David and Maria, he announces his presence and politely delivers a "boo" and a roar. Neither attempt works, so he tries giggling at Susan and Gordon without any luck. Grover declares himself a bust as a monster, incapable of scaring anyone. But he doesn't feel too bad because at least he showed the audience what lovable is.
