COLD OPEN "What's the Word on the Street?" -- angry

SCENE Rosita and Zoe are both excited about their play date together. As they start to play hide-and-seek, Abby Cadabby poofs up out of nowhere. Rosita is about to show Abby how they play hide-and-seek, but Abby mentions another game, "Jumping Rhymes", which piques Zoe's interests. Zoe and Abby are good at the game, but Rosita has trouble thinking of words that rhyme with "chair," and can only think of made-up words (which are acceptable).

Rosita insists they play hide-and-seek next, and tells Abby how to play it. Zoe and Abby hide while Rosita counts. While they hide, Abby is impressed by Zoe's tutu, and asks Zoe to teach her how to dance ballet. Rosita finishes counting and is about to look for them, when she encounters them both dancing ballet instead of hiding. She runs off, frustrated and angry.

Meanwhile, at the Fix-It Shop, an anxious rabbit desperately needs his teapot fixed for a tea party. He realizes he's late, and runs off. Just then, Rosita shows up and tells Maria and Gabi how angry she feels at Zoe and Abby. Maria tells her to take a deep breath, which helps a little.
Zoe and Abby catch up with Rosita and ask her what happened. Rosita is so angry she can only express her feelings in Spanish at first, but Zoe realizes how angry she is. They reassure her that they do want to play with her, even though they got distracted by ballet earlier. They all agree to take turns choosing what to play, and Rosita asks for her turn to choose hide-and-seek. They're all friends again!
The monsters (and fairy) run off to play hide-and-seek, but the rabbit comes back to remind Maria and Gabi that they have a teapot to fix ...
