SCENE 5 Baby Bear comes back with another red crayon, but notices that Elmo is wearing a doctor's outfit. He's wearing them because he wants to be a doctor when he grows up, and he wants to be drawn that way now (he got the props while Baby Bear was getting the crayon). Once again, Elmo changes his mind at the last second, and runs off. He comes back dressed as a fireman, then changes his mind again and decides to be drawn as himself. Baby Bear gives up, not believing Elmo will hold still.
