Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Gordon goes through a stretching routine in the arbor during the early morning and explains to the camera that he likes to get up this early because there's very little traffic and it's a pretty time of the day. He invites the viewer along for a jog, which is set to a spoof of the Chariots of Fire music, and consists of a montage of Gordon running through the city.

SCENE 2 Big Bird sees Forgetful Jones coming his way. Forgetful naturally can't remember Big Bird's name, where's he's going, or what's he's going to do. Big Bird thinks life might be tough when you can't remember anything and imagines what Sesame Street would be like if everyone has just as poor a memory as Forgetful...
SCENE 2 cont'd In Hooper's Store, Big Bird finds it frustrating to order his usual birdseed when David can't remember the order, what anything in the store is called, or even the names of his customers (who can't remember their names either). He then runs into the Count, who can't even remember how to count. He reaches his boiling point when his own best friend Mr. Snuffleupagus can't remember who he is.
SCENE 2 cont'd David, Maria, and Gordon help snap back Big Bird back to reality. He's relieved that they all remember his name and asks them a favor - "Just promise me that if I ever again decide to imagine what it would be like if everyone on Sesame Street forgets all the time you'll remind me to forget it."
