COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Recipe

SCENE Chris, Telly and Zoe visit the Laundromat and find Leela making a bracelet. She explains today is "Rahki", an Indian holiday for brothers and sisters where they exchange bracelets (also including people they feel are like brother and sister). Leela has already sent one for her brother Snuil in India and is waiting for hers in the mail. A delivery man comes, but with a sample box of detergent instead. Chris leaves and Zoe and Telly stay to make bracelets too.
SCENE cont'd Chris is occupied, making a bracelet for Leela (since he considers her like a sister). Elmo drops by and is filled in on the festivities of Rahki. Chris tells Elmo he thinks Leela is homesick and Elmo gives him an idea on how to make her feel at home...

SCENE cont'd Zoe and Telly have finished making a bracelet, when Gordon stops by to drop off some laundry. Telly shows him his bracelet for Baby Bear and Gordon thinks it's special. Telly realizes Gordon is like a brother to him and starts on another bracelet.
SCENE cont'd Chris and Elmo have prepared several Indian dishes, thanks to an online cookbook. They must add the final touch to their laddoo, which needs to be topped with some pistachios. The delivery man arrives with some.
SCENE cont'd Telly completes Gordon's bracelet, when Abby appears in the Laundromat instead of the bowling alley. She learns about the bracelets and thinks Telly's is cool, then poofs away. Telly thinks Abby thought the bracelet was for her and scrambles to make another one.
SCENE cont'd Back at Hooper's Store, Chris can't find any Indian music on the radio to play. He consults another website and with a few clicks, a pair of Indian musicians are delivered to the store. "I love the internet!", Chris exclaims
SCENE cont'd Oscar visits the Laundromat with a bowling shirt he just bought (he loves the loud colors on it) and wants it dirtied. Telly states Oscar's his oldest friend and starts making a bracelet for him. Leela is about to close up shop, when she and Zoe hear some music. They go investigate and leave Telly to his work.


SCENE cont'd Leela and Zoe follow the sounds to Hooper's Store, which is now decked out in India decor. They find all their friends waiting and having a Rahki party for her. Chris presents her with a bracelet he made for her; Leela reveals the one she was making earlier was for him too. Soon after, the delivery man arrives once more with Sunil's bracelet. Telly then arrives, with bracelets for everybody!

Muppets / Animation Abby's Flying Fairy School
Playtime is over for the students and they must clean up. Blogg doesn’t want to put his toys away, so he decides to sweep them under the magic carpet. However, a magic lock is on it. Once unlocked (using Niblet’s horn), a hoard of Fairy Dust Bunnies are unleashed. Unfortunately, Mrs. Sparklenose is allergic to the dust bunnies and once they come in contact with her, her nose sparkles and blinks once. She sneezes and turns the students into frogs. They make up a magic word to return them back to normal (Gezundenshniffle). Her nose blinks twice now, turning them into chickens. They realize they have to say their word for every time her nose blinks to return to normal. Her nose blinks thrice and they turn into cheese and are then chased by a hungry Niblet. After returning to normal, they call on Spot, who shows them a video of a robot “under” various things. They see that to get the dust bunnies gone, they need to go back under the rug. They make a dust carrot and sends the dust bunnies back under. Blogg, however, is stuck cleaning up his toys.

Muppets Super Grover 2.0: Pretty Good Wall
Super Grover 2.0 comes to the aid of a chicken, who needs to get to the other side of "The Pretty Good Wall of China." Grover observes that she has wings, but she states she can't fly. Next, Grover investigates by trying to ask the wall to shrink down, while the chicken tries to hop over, knocking them both over. Grover browses his utility sock for some technology and finds some springs to help the chicken jump over. The springs are shoddy and cause her to fall onto of him ("Might I say that you are no spring chicken?"). He then pulls out a "hole-poker-ma-bob" (a pole) to pierce the wall. He gets a running start and smashes into the wall. He tries again and the chicken gets in the way, causing him to stick the pole on the ground and he is sent flying. The chicken realizes he's made a lever and uses a larger pole to pole-vault over the wall. Grover makes an attempt too, but is flung into the wall again.
Muppets Murray announces "Elmo's World" is coming up, but first, he plays "Sounds of the Street". He hears the sounds of a saxophone, a drummer and a trumpet-playing rooster.
