COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Scrumptious
(First: Episode 4184)
SCENE Cookie Monster strolls over to Hooper's Store and asks Chris for a cookie. Chris gives him one and after Cookie finishes and asks for another, he finds out there are no more cookies left. Chris assures him there will be more tomorrow. ("It's only a day away!") Cookie walks away from the store and laments to the viewer how hard it is to be a Cookie Monster, as it always involves waiting. He wishes he never had to wait for cookies again.

SCENE cont'd A the mention of the word "wish", a giant cookie floats from the sky and reveals The Cookie Fairy (Sandra Oh), who has come to grant his wish. She gives him the power known as "The Cookie Touch", where everything he touches will become a cookie. He tests it out on Chris' sponge and lo and behold, it turns into a cookie! He devours it and begins reveling in his new power. The Cookie Fairy hears a cookie crumbling in Cleveland and leaves. Cookie screams "Me got Cookie Touch!" over and over as he goes to find more things to touch.

SCENE cont'd Cookie finds a hat on a table and turns it into a cookie to eat. He leaves and a woman comes back, wondering where her hat went, finding only cookie crumbs. He comes back to suck up his unfinished business.
SCENE cont'd As Cookie continues to walk around, he finds a newspaper, turns it into a cookie and eats it. He remarks, "All the news you can fit the 'eat'!" He wonders what else he can use his new power for and realizes he could use it to make his friends happy.

SCENE cont'd Telly Monster spends some quality time with his triangles and shows off his favorite triangle (which Baby Bear gave him as a birthday gift). Cookie walks over to him and tries to make Telly happier by turning his triangle into a cookie, which doesn't bode well for Telly.

SCENE cont'd Big Bird sits in his nest, reading a book "All About a Dinosaur" to The Kids. Cookie strolls in and tires to make Big Bird happier by making his book a cookie. After Cookie leaves, Big Bird sadly wonders, "How do you read a cookie?"


SCENE cont'd Cookie runs back to Hooper's in the mood for something "lunch-y". Chris has prepared some tuna sandwiches, which Cookie accepts. But, when Cookie touches his sandwich, it turns into a cookie. He realizes he can never eat anything but cookies again, but he looks on the bright side, as he still made his friends happy. However, Telly and Big Bird rush over to him, feeling sad and angry, and demand they get their stuff back, as they liked them before they were cookies. Cookie sees the error of his ways and accidentally turns Chris into a cookie! Cookie wishes he hadn't made his wish.

SCENE cont'd Once again, The Cookie Fairy arrives when he makes his wish. She takes away his power just like he wished and changes everything (and Chris) back to normal. Cookie, relieved, runs home to eat his mom's homemade lasagna. The Cookie Fairy remarks how hungry she is and wishes she had a tuna sandwich. Chris serves her one of the sandwiches he had pre-made, making her believe he's The Tuna Fairy.
