SCENE 1 Oscar the Grouch explains to Gordon that his pet worm Slimey is hammering a nail into a piece of wood because he's thinking of becoming a carpenter. Gordon wonders if he's too small, but Oscar counters that carpenter ants make out all right. When he runs out of nails, Oscar tells Slimey that he can just get another one from the Fix-It Shop, but Gordon explains that its closed; Luis locked up early today. Oscar contines telling Slimey to make his way over there, annoying Gordon for being ignored. Finally, Oscar explains that the Fix-It Shop will be open again tomorrow morning, which is fine, because that's how long it will take Slimey to get over there. "You sorta got all upset over nothing, didn't ya, Gordon?" Gordon takes to the camera as Oscar chuckles.
