Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN What's the Word on the Street?: Friend

Elsewhere, Leela observes a sidewalk mural made by Telly, Rosita and Baby Bear.
SCENE cont'd Meanwhile, Zoe shows Elmo the moves she's choreographed for their special Friendship Day dance, though Elmo struggles to nail the moves. Frustrated, she calls him the worst. She calms herself down and tries to press onward, not noticing Elmo has already left.

SCENE cont'd Zoe finds Elmo down the street, where he tells her how upset he is and ends their friendship. Abby happens by and Zoe explains what's happened, not sure why Elmo is upset. Abby makes a magical replay, where Zoe sees what she said, though she states she didn't mean anything by calling him "the worst." Zoe attempts to patch their relationship.

SCENE cont'd Zoe finds Elmo again and tries to tell him it was only a word. Elmo replies it's a hurtful word and leaves once more. Leela and Chris tell Zoe, through song, that though "Sticks and Stones" can break one's bones, words can hurt just as much. Zoe realizes she has to apologize.
SCENE cont'd Zoe runs into Elmo and apologizes, telling him she'd always want him to be her friend, even if he can't do the dance. Elmo forgives her and they become friends again. For the rest of the street, they do their friendship dance, which Elmo finally gets right!
