SCENE 1 In the arbor, a bespectacled monster wearing a hat reads a letter from his brother Herry Monster who has invited him to visit on Sesame Street. The letter is addressed to Jerry who explains that he's not much like his brother, except in the way he looks. Indeed, a number of locals mistake him for Herry, and ask Jerry to assist in activities that his much stronger brother could handle with ease. Gordon asks him to lift a large crate onto a wagon, Maria asks him to cheer on the kids with his loud voice, and Luis wants him to chop a plank in half with his bare hand. Jerry laments over everyone expecting him to act like his brother, insisting instead that he's not Herry, "I'm me!"

SCENE 2 In the Fix-It Shop, Maria, Luis, and Gordon discuss their strange interactions with who they thought was Herry Monster this morning, and wonder if he might be sick. Just then, Herry himself smashes down the front door asking anyone has seen his twin brother. After he leaves, the three make their way over to the arbor where they greet Jerry and apologize for thinking he was Herry. Even though he can't do the strong things like his brother, they still like him just the way he is. Jerry explains there is one thing he can do that his brother can't. He demonstrates a whistle so loud and long that his new friends have to block their ears.
