SCENE 1 The Count greets Bob while he's talking to the audience about near and far. He's a little sad and comments on how there are no footprints in the freshly fallen snow yet. Bob excuses himself to continue the lesson, but the Count offers to help. Once he's shown that he's "near" Bob, he asks him to walk away from him to demonstrate "far". They repeat this a few times until the Count says that should be enough. When Bob asks what he means, the Count explains that he nows has plenty of footprints in the snow to count.

SCENE 2 Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus can't decide whether they want to make a snow bird or a snow snuffleupagus. Snuffy wants a snow snuffleupagus because he came up with the idea of making something out of snow, and Big Bird wants a snow bird because it's his snow they're going to use. They agree to make their own things together, because it's better than arguing about it.
