|COLD OPEN||What's the Word on the Street?: Fragrance|
|SCENE||Elmo welcomes the viewer to the Sesame Street Flower Show, as everyone on the street sings about it.|
|SCENE cont'd||Elmo and Rosita hear screaming and find it coming from Stinky the Stinkweed, who's struggling to grow a flower in time for the show (it happens to coincide with his once-a-year blooming). Leela deduces from his various symptoms he's feeling nervous and tells him to relax and breathe to calm down before the judges arrive. While he tries to relax, a fellow plant starts up a conversation, talking about her flowers, suddenly growing one. She then grows another, and uses addition to total them.|
|SCENE cont'd||Stinky yells again, bringing his friends back. They show him another tip for calming down: belly breathing. Since he doesn't have hands or a belly, Leela has him place his leaves on his middle and just breathe. While they're gone, the other plant starts talking to him again and suddenly grows a ninth flower.|
|SCENE cont'd||Stinky can't take the frustration of not being able to grow a flower like the other plant. Leela takes him aside to tell him he's not like other plants; he's "Unique."|
|SCENE cont'd||Stinky takes Leela's song to heart, repeating to himself that he's unique. The judges roll by and are about to reward the other plant with the blue ribbon, when Stinky finally blooms a beautiful flower. The judges are impressed and give him the ribbon, but are soon repulsed by his flower's terrible smell. The other plant is unhappy; she's never lost a ribbon before. Stinky reassures her that she's unique.|

Cookie Monster stars as Captain Snack Sparrow and, along with his female companion, tries to find Davy Jones' cookie jar. They follow the map to a cave, where they find they need to load up a sculpture's hands with triangles to get in. Cookie puts the wrong shape in and is told to focus with his imaginary spyglass. When he gets it right, the cave opens slightly and Davy Jones changes the rules of entry; they now need to fill the hands with orange shapes. Cookie puts in another triangle, which is thrown back at him. He decides to give up, until he's convinced to focus again. They find some orange shapes and find the cave with the cookie jar. That is, until they're blocked by Davy Jones' animals. His ghost sings them a short shanty ("One of These Things") for them to answer. Cookie is about to give up when he realizes the correct answer (The parrot doesn't belong) and Davy Jones is defeated. The trailer ends just as the parrot makes off with the cookie jar.

Once they become coffee, Grover goes to turn some sugar cane into sugar for him, but he asks for milk instead (hoping it'll be quicker).
