Elmo and Zoe explain to Maria about the American Fruit Stand and Miles singing. Then, Maria asked if she can get some broccoli and Zoe wonders if you can get broccoli from a fruit stand?

They all wanted Miles to sing some more, but Miles says he has to take off and get the blueberries to his mom. Duck Clark signs off and says that we will see him next time on American Fruit stand.
