SCENE 1 cont'd Chris comes back to find his table cloth covered in dirt and junk. Grover asserts they're the fossils, until Chris points out that not everything old and found in dirt is a fossil. Distraught, Grover decides to quit the paleontologist gig until Elmo comes up with a great idea - use the pieces to create their own dinosaur. Grover assembles the pieces into a jumble, so Chris suggests they design it first. They study the pieces and figure out what parts resemble dinosaur body parts. Their design works and they come up with a dinosaur figure! Grover calls it "Barbara." They go off to make more dinosaurs.
