SCENE 1 There's a long line outside Hooper's Store, of which Big Bird is last. He imagines some ways he could get to be first in line - he could assert dominance since he is the tallest of them all, he could trick everyone else into leaving or he could throw a temper tantrum. After imagining how all the scenarios would play out, he finds it's his turn already...only now he's forgotten what he was going to order.
