SCENE 7 Big Bird gathers everyone again and shows off some large snowflakes he's made out of paper. They match the white and light criteria, but they're much too big. Everyone explains it's nice that he's tried to make it snow for everybody, but that it happens naturally and they'll all just have to wait. Still determined, Big Bird stands on one foot and recites a short poem... just as it begins to snow. Gordon announces the sponsors.
