SCENE 2 Gina finishes having some lunch at Hooper's Store, which she deems "scrumptious." Elmo pops up and asks David what the word means. He likes this new word and repeats it over and over, then wishes to use it himself by having something scrumptious. David gives him a sample of the soup Gina had, but Elmo doesn't love it as much. He takes bites of more dishes, not finding any of them truly scrumptious. Finally, an irked David asks Elmo what kind of foods he likes and plops down Elmo's favorite - an apple. However, Elmo is now much too full from all the other dishes to eat it.
