Grover, missing the point, tries ideas of his own to get warm, but they don't work. Finally, Kermit tells Grover that if he wants to get warm, he should come inside. Excited, Grover pulls Kermit aside and slams the door, locking Kermit outside. Grover goes to sleep in Kermit's armchair while the frozen frog scrapes at the window.

With all four things running at once, they blow a fuse, causing a total blackout in their apartment. Bert goes outside to fix the fuse box, while Ernie turns off all the things that were running. When the lights come back on, they decide to play cards instead of fight.

SCENE 3 Big Bird has invited Shola and Joey over to play "house" at his nest. Joey says she wants to play the mother, so Big Bird designates Shola as his sister. Joey sits up in the nest as the mom and watches as Bird Bird and Shola argue like siblings over a jump rope. Finally, Joey interjects and says they have to share: each of them gets an end so that someone in the middle can jump. Big Bird invites "mom" to be the third player. Joey gets one jump before missing another, so now it's Big Bird's turn. The girls struggle trying to get the rope over Big Bird's head.
