Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Grover probes baby Emerson for information about babies for today's show.
(First: Episode 4627)

SCENE 1 Chris welcomes the viewer as he pushes a carriage down the block and states they have a special visitor today. Cookie Monster guesses it could be Mother Goose or the Queen of England, but Chris shows him it's actually a young baby, Emma. Grover arrives, having heard the Queen of England is in town, and accidentally wakes up the baby. Chris tells them that he's babysitting and after clarifying that doesn't mean actually sitting on a baby, allows Grover and Cookie to help out.


SCENE 1 cont'd The monsters try to communicate with Emma, but can't understand anything she says. Chris informs them it's just "baby talk," then Emma starts crying. Chris instructs Grover to think like a baby and propose what she could be crying about. Since it's almost lunchtime, he believes she could be hungry. Cookie offers a cookie, but she doesn't go for it. Grover remembers babies prefer milk and rushes off, returning with a cowboy outfit and cows ready for milking. Chris tells him babies drink different milk and already has a bottle for formula. He allows Cookie Monster to help feed her, then burp her.
SCENE 1 cont'd Baby Emma now grabs a hold of Cookie's fur and won't let go. Grover happens to find a nice, soft, stuffed animal in her carriage and strokes himself with it. Baby Emma finds it just as enjoyable.

SCENE 1 cont'd Emma starts to show signs of being tired, which means it's time for her nap. Cookie recalls being sung to sleep as a young monster. He and Grover begin a boisterous lullaby, with trumpet and cymbal solos, until Chris points out how inappropriate it is. The monsters ad-lib their own softer lullaby that puts Emma right to sleep. Chris compliments their babysitting skills, but the monsters shush him, as to not wake Emma.
