COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Brush
(First: Episode 4177)

SCENE At night, Hoots sits on the roof and plays the theme song on his sax. Chris closes up the store, welcomes the viewer and notices Luis and Maria dressed up for their night out dancing. After talking with Oscar, they see Abby dressed in her pajamas floating above Big Bird’s doors, ready to have her first sleepover at Big Bird's nest. She shows off the things she’s brought, such as her pillow and book (both of which float with her). Big Bird notices no one can read the book to them, so Abby suggest Luis and Maria read.
SCENE cont'd They enter the nest area, but Abby points out that before they read, she needs her wings brushed. However, Abby forgot her brush at home. She calls her mommy, who plans to send it to her via the Fairy Delivery Service. The fairy delivery man arrives and shares a brief, high-pitched laugh with Abby. They sing the fairy brushing song as they brush Abby’s and Big Bird’s wings.
SCENE cont'd Now, it’s time for Abby to be tucked in, but her pillow floats up and down so much Maria can’t do it. Abby points out it’s a magic blanket and all Maria has to do is toss it up. She does so and the blanket magically sticks to Abby.


SCENE cont'd Now, it’s time for the story. Maria chooses “Hey Diddle Diddle” and the duo find humor in the word “diddle” and repeat it over and over. She begins the book and she and Luis plan on leaving when the characters from the book appear before them. After kissing them goodnight, the couple tries to leave again, but a rain storm begins. With no other option left, Luis and Maria are forced to cancel their night out and have the sleepover in their apartment.

SCENE cont'd Now settled in the apartment, Abby calls her mom to tell her what’s happened. Her mom tells her in gratitude, she’ll grant Maria and Luis a wish. Luis wishes they could’ve gone dancing and Abby’s wand poofs music, a disco ball and appropriate lighting and clothes. They go out onto the dance floor and trip the light fantastic.
