Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 David is on the ledge outside Bob's apartment above Hooper's Store. He's caulking the windows to keep in heat and keep out the rain. Maria wants to keep company with him upstairs, so he tosses down Bob's only set of keys...only they land on the store's awning instead. Luis has taken the Fix-It Shop's tallest ladder for a job, so Maria bats at the bottom of the awning with a broom, which only shifts the keys around. Big Bird comes by and assumes Maria is using the broom to tidy up the block. When he learns about the keys, he offers a simple solution - roll down the awning. Big Bird picks up the rescued keys and decides to keep David company while Maria keeps cleaning.
