SCENE 1 Big Bird hears that Gordon and Susan have a problem, and since they often help him solve problems, Big Bird is happy to finally be able to help them solve a problem. Their apartment is being painted, and they had planned on staying the night at Jamal and Angela's apartment, but their baby, Kayla, has just gotten the chicken pox. Miles is staying at a friend's house, but Susan and Gordon still need a place to stay. Big Bird makes a number of suggestions, including Hawaii, the park and Big Bird's nest, before suggesting the Furry Arms Hotel. Susan doesn't like the idea, but Gordon convinces her.
