|SCENE||Telly and Baby Bear are having a playdate together, along with their pets, Chuckie Sue and Ralphie. They sing about how today feels like "A Best Friends Kind of Day." They then notice their pets conversing, noting they've become best friends too.|
|SCENE cont'd||Elmo arrives and Telly tells Chuckie Sue to greet him. Hamsters cannot talk, however, Ralphie is able to say hello to Elmo, amazing him. Ralphie can even speak fluent Spanish, as he compliments Maria's blue blouse. Telly states Chuckie Sue only makes squeaky noises, but she remains silent. Ralphie compensates, also being fluent in hamster.|
|SCENE cont'd||Telly states Chuckie Sue can eat sunflower seeds right from his hand, but she remains still. Ralphie has made his own snack - a fruit salad, which amazes Alan. Telly next tries to get Chuckie Sue to run on her wheel, but when she doesn't, he claims she's tired. Baby Bear has a quiet game the pets can play - The Shape Game, where they identify shapes. The Count overhears Ralphie counting the side of a hexagon and joins him. He compliments Baby Bear for having such a gifted pet and ponders getting his own parrot. It's Chuckie Sue's turn, but she gives no answers. Baby Bear offers to have Ralphie teach her, when Telly finally erupts, fed up with Ralphie and all his special skills. He calls Baby Bear a show off before storming off with his hamster.|
|SCENE cont'd||Gordon comes outside to find Telly, a bundle of nerves over his angry feelings (singing "When Will This Feeling End?"). Gordon learns what's happened and explains Telly's not angry, but jealous. Telly admits that despite the love for his hamster, he wishes he could have a parrot like Ralphie. Gordon offers a solution for Telly - whenever he feels jealous, he must take a moment to breath and calm down. Feeling better, Telly goes to reconcile with his best friend.|
|SCENE cont'd||Telly returns to Baby Bear, apologizing and admitting his feelings. Baby Bear states he can play with Ralphie whenever he'd like, and asks if he can do the same with Chuckie Sue. Feeling better once more, the two sing a reprise of "A Best Friends Kind of Day."|

It lands on a farm, during a "Most Unusual Watermelon" competition, where the rooster host declares it the winner, until Elmo Bird explains it's an egg. The rooster tosses the egg away, where it lands in a hat shop, atop a duck's new #5 Hat. Now that it's a #6 Hat, the clerk subtracts it and hurls it away too. It lands at a ballpark, where the chicken pitcher mistakes it for a baseball, until Elmo Bird and the umpire chicken point out the difference. The pitcher throws it back to the nest, where Elmo Bird's new baby brother hatches.
