SCENE 3 Gordon drops by Oscar's trash can to use his Olympic sized swimming pool, reminding the Grouch that he promised Gordon could use it "anytime." "You must have caught me in a weak moment," Oscar says. He details many poor conditions in the pool to keep Gordon out, including the unheated temperature, his man-tickling clam and a giant rock in the pool. Gordon accounts for all of these by wearing a full-body wetsuit for warmth, flippers to outswim the clam and a football helmet to prevent banging into the rock. Oscar drops one final issue - it's ladies only day for his pool. Gordon goes back home, while Susan, Olivia and Maria, all dressed as Gordon is, begin to pile into the can, to Oscar's chagrin.
