Picture Segment Description

SCENE 1 Luis welcomes the viewer to Sesame Street, and tells Telly Monster to be careful not to break his vase. He hears the phone ring in the Fix-It Shop, and goes inside to answer it. While he's gone, Telly admires the swirly designs on the vase, waves his hands around, and accidentally knocks the vase to the ground, where it shatters. He shows Roxie Marie what he did and, thinking that Luis will yell at him for breaking the vase, runs away in fear.
Luis comes back outside and notices the remains of the vase on the ground. Roxie explains to him that Telly feels very guilty about it, and thinks Luis will yell at him, but Luis assures her that he won't - it was an accident. Roxie is impressed at how Luis handles these situations - "If I ever break somethin', I hope it's somethin' of yours."
