SCENE 1 In the early morning, Snuffy stops by Big Bird's nest, unable to sleep from the thrill of meeting everyone yesterday. A thought then occurs to him - he wonders if it really happened, or if he just imagined it. Big Bird is sure it happened, but starts doubting himself too. They both envision the momentous occasion, but can't figure out whether they're just imagining it or not.

SCENE 2 Snuffy mopes by the Fix-It Shop and tells Maria that he wants to tell somebody something, but feels too shy to do it. Maria suggests putting it in writing instead. The paper and pen she has are much too small for him, so he dictates the message - "I'm glad we met. I like you. I hope we can be friends. Your friend, I hope, Snuffy." The message turns out to be for Maria, who hugs him and gives him a kiss on the snuffle.
