Picture Segment Description
SCENE 1 Early in the morning, Gordon takes the garbage out and suddenly finds himself locked out of 123 Sesame Street. Susan is already at work and he can't wake Miles with the doorbell, so he tries finding another way in. He tiptoes into Big Bird's nest area, where Big Bird is asleep. He tries climbing into the kitchen window, waking Big Bird up in the process. After Gordon makes it inside, Susan comes by, having forgotten her keys inside. Big Bird tells her the methods Gordon uses and suggests she do the same.
