Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Olivia finds Big Bird pacing by the payphone. He admits that he's supposed to have lunch at Mr. Snuffleupagus' place, but dreads having to eat cabbage again and doesn't know if he can bring himself to tell Snuffy this. He makes Olivia pretend to be Snuffy and practices what he'll say. He instead makes an excuse for not showing up, which Olivia points out is lying. Big Bird finds the courage to speak honestly and calls up the Snuffleupagus residence. Instead, Mommy Snuffleupagus answers and tells Big Bird that Snuffy is in the bath for the next 10 minutes. Olivia promises to wait with Big Bird in the meantime, still finding the situation ridiculous.
