SCENE 4 For storytime, Maria tells Big Bird about all the jobs she's had since high school. We see flashback scenes of her at the Lending Library, as a construction worker (with Jerry Nelson making a cameo), and asking Luis for a raise at the Fix-It Shop. She confides that when Sally Ride visited, she thought about going to work with the space program. Her life story puts Big Bird to sleep. Bob announces the sponsors.
