SCENE Elmo and the kids come riding out of the arbor on their tricycles and Elmo finds Abby with a tricycle over her own, ready to ride, but she needs lessons first. Elmo recommends Gordon, who taught him how to ride with great results. Abby waves her wand to summon Gordon, who happens to be taking a bath at the time and appears, bathtub and all. Gordon promises to teach her, just as soon as she lets him finish his bath back in his apartment.
SCENE cont'd While they wait for Gordon, they try getting their minds off of tricycles. They try thinking of marshmallows, but their minds go back to tricycles when a boy passes by on one They then think of elephants, until Horatio rolls by on his tricycle.

SCENE cont'd Gordon finally comes out to help, but Abby floats up in the air in excitement. She drops back to her seat, but faces the wrong way on the bike, so Gordon shows her the front and back of the tricycle. After she adjusts herself, Gordon gets her feet on the pedals and tells her to put her hands on the handlebars. However, since she's holding her wand, she can only use one hand. Gordon and Elmo show her the basket, where she could keep her wand while she rides.

SCENE cont'd Next, Gordon shows her how to steer. Elmo jumps the gun and begins riding away, hoping Abby will follow, but she still hasn't finished her lesson. He explains how to peddle, but she can't seem to do it. Gordon helps push her, then lets go without her knowing. When she realizes this, her trike lifts off the ground and begins flying all over the street. Once she lands, Elmo and Abby ride down the street together singing a song.
