SCENE 1 Herry Monster asks Maria, Olivia, and David to keep an eye out for his sister Herriet who's coming to the city to look for a job, while Herry runs out to pick up some things for her stay. Herriet arrives via bus and greets Sesame Street's residents, giving David a crushing handshake (oblivious strength runs in the family). Olivia offers her a newspaper to look at the job listings and carpentry catches her eye. In front of the Fix-It Shop, Maria lets Herriet try sawing a piece of wood, but her abundance of strength leaves the plank in sawdust. Herriet figures she should probably ought to consider a different career.
