SCENE 2 Big Bird find everyone sulking in Hooper's Store. He learns about the trip and wants in, thinking they can simply walk, take the bus or drive Gordon's car to Hawaii. Susan points it out on globe, showing him the only way they can get there is by airplane. Big Bird offers to sell some of his birdseed to help cover the cost, inspiring everyone to think of ways they can make some quick cash. Olivia phones the airline to find out how much their trip would cost. Everyone balks when Big Bird asks how much it would cost to bring Mr. Snuffleupagus along.

Muppets Ernie & Bert — While Ernie looks after Hooper's Store, Bert asks him for something to drink. Ernie starts out with a glass of unflavored soda water, tastes it, and decides it's too dull for his ol' buddy Bert. To Bert's dismay, Ernie then adds some strawberry syrup to the soda water, then a scoop of ice cream, and finally, some whipped cream. Now it's an ice cream soda, which Bert doesn't want... but Ernie does.
