Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Tingo is babysitting Jake, Niki's little cousin, and decides to try and impress Niki by teaching him some words, before she comes back from the store. He tries in vain to get Jake to learn the words "eyes", "nose", and "mouth", which the child says, but pointing to the wrong features on his face. Jake takes better to viciously bonking Tingo on the head with Ducky, his stuffed toy.
Cartoon Abstracted all-black facial features slowly appear on the screen, with a voiceover describing what-is-what. Eventually the image gains background colors, and is revealed as "Bust Of A Woman With A Hat" by Pablo Picasso.
SCENE 2 Tingo's efforts of teaching Jake his facial parts continue to fail.

Muppets Muppet & Kid Moments
Grover speaks to two kids. The first segment, Grover talks to Carrington about their nose and how they both have it in the same place. The second segment, Grover talks to Chelsea about what their ears, eyes, nose, and mouth can do. Chelsea mentions that they both have them and also have feet, hands, bellies, necks, arms, back, and shoulder. Grover replies they have a cornucopia of parts, which means they have a lot of good stuff.

Muppets In the park, Elmo, Rosita, Telly, Merry, and two AM Monsters are supposed to show 6 of something, but they don't have anything with them... until they realize that they have each other to count.. (edited)
SCENE 3 Tingo plays a musical game with Jake, asking him to "Show Me" certain facial features. Jake continues to point at the wrong parts of his face.
Muppets Ernie and Elmo sing "One Fine Face." (middle dialogue edited out)
SCENE 4 Niki arrives home from the store, and without mention of what Tingo was trying to teach Jake, enthusiastically tells him she taught Jake new words. She asks Tingo to watch, which he does, but highly doubtingly. Jake proceeds to point to and name facial features on demand, even saying "mouth" deeply, in a adult male voice. Niki then asks Jake to kiss Tingo, to which he makes a disgusted face, eventually doing so. Tingo kisses back.
