|COLD OPEN||What's the Word on the Street?: Flexible|
|SCENE||Elmo and Leela welcome the viewer to a very special day. Sesame Street is housing the biggest number convention - Numeric-Con, where everyone celebrates their favorite number characters. Elmo is posing as The Dark Nine and Leela dresses as her favorite, Princess Three-ah, complete with three hair buns. They show off a list of things Elmo wants to do at the convention and head off to the first thing...|
|SCENE cont'd||...which is a sneak peek at the new Doctor Two, as introduced by Mando. Doctor Two appears in his Two-dis, having brought some aliens with him (including the Martians and beings based on the Daleks and Cybermen). However, there's so many he can't keep track and doesn't have time to count them all. One attendee declares this the worst convention ever. The Dark Nine jumps into action and saves the day by counting the alien pairs by twos. The Doctor is grateful and Elmo and Leela head off to do the next thing on his list.|
|SCENE cont'd||Leela and Elmo show off the photo they took with the Fantabulous Four (featuring Alan substituting for Disappearing Girl) and go to the next item on Elmo's list - get an autograph. They find themselves in line for Fiverine, who happens to be Chris' favorite hero. The critical attendee shows off his copy, which is comprised of five lines from Fiverine's five-crayon glove (it allows him to sign with super speed). Chris gets so excited to shake Fiverine's hand that he breaks all the crayons, preventing him from signing any more. The Dark Nine has a solution - with one crayon, he can make a number 5 instead. His idea works and Chris is given the first version.|
|SCENE cont'd||Elmo's last Numeric-Con goal, and his most important, is to count to 10 with his favorite hero - the Green Lan-ten. The hero they find is instead the Green Four-net, who claims the two get confused all the time. He tells them the Green Lan-ten was just seen hitching a cab home. Elmo gets upset and Leela convinces him to change his plan and "Be Flexible." Elmo heeds her advice and changes his plan.|
|SCENE cont'd||Elmo's new plan is to count with an equally-great number character - Cap-ten Kirk. The two count to 10 in typical Shatner fashion. Elmo and Leela sign off, having had a great day at Numeric-Con!|
|Muppets / Celebrity||Zachary Quinto and Grover demonstrate the word flexible by having flexible frames of mind and bending some objects, including their own legs.|

|Muppets||Cookie's Crumby Pictures presents Star S'mores (Rated SC: For Self-Control)|
Cookie Monster plays Flan Solo, who must rescue the Princess Parfaita, who is in the hands of the evil galactic empire. Aiding Flan are Luke Piewalker and Chewie the Cookie. Flan can't help but try to munch on Chewie, so Luke suggests they find someone to help control himself. They find Only One Cannoli, who recommends he "use the four" - counting to four to calm himself down. Flan tries it, but still finds himself hungry for Chewie. They then visit a swamp, where Groda (played by Grover) suggests he take his mind off cookies by singing. Flan tries that too, but still hungers for Chewie. The crew find themselves at the headquarters of Darth Baker, who turns out to be Luke's father and offers another strategy - Flan should pretend Chewie is something else. Flan dresses Chewie up like his grandmother; he'd never eat his granny. The team rescues Princess Parfaita, who rewards Flan with her cookie hairdo.
