SCENE 1 Susan, Maria, Mr. Hooper, and Telly are busy helping Luis get the renovations on the Fix-It Shop done for opening day tomorrow. An Anything Muppet courier arrives to deliver a box for Luis; Telly signs for it and explains that they're all cooperating today. The package contains some tools that the courier asks Telly to look over. The hammer, saw, and wrench all belong, but the lunchbox doesn't... it belongs to the courier. He has trouble getting it open, so he and Telly start to work on it with the tools provided.

SCENE 3 Mr. Hooper has made some sandwiches for everyone working in the Fix-It Shop, but they're all too busy to stop and eat. He walks out to the sidewalk and imagines himself as a kid (played by Daniel Rothman) in the 1920s on a day when he was having so much fun rollerstaking that he didn't want to stop to eat. His father (played by Will Lee) had made him lunch, which young Harold eventually became tired enough to eat. As he did, he felt his strength returning to him so that he could continue playing. Back in the present, Mr. Hooper is not determined to get everyone to eat, but when he re-enters the Fix-It Shop, he finds everyone eating the sandwiches... and they haven't left any for him.

SCENE 4 Maria and Luis exit the Fix-It Shop, resolved to call it a day as soon as they attach the door to the storefront... except it's missing. Maria spots it over near Oscar's trash can and approaches Oscar for an explanation.

Suspicious of his well-intentioned gesture, she says he can go ahead and paint it, and heads back to Luis.

SCENE 5 The newly-painted door is attached to the Fix-It Shop now, and it's garishly plainted in a mess of colors. Oscar is nefariously laughing nearby, so Luis says he actually likes it. Maria catches on to his game and agrees. Oscar is offended that he spent so much time on it; they were supposed to hate it. Maria and Luis thank him courteously, which further annoys the grouch.
