Picture Segment Description
COLD OPEN Biff and Sully set up today's theme of construction vehicles. Biff lists one of the kinds they'll need to follow their blueprint plans, but the building turns out to be a block construction by Ovejita (which Biff knocks over).

SCENE 1 Big Bird greets the viewer while Biff and Sully noisily work on the street to repair a busted water pipe. To help with the job, they bring in Lucky, a bulldozer whose first day of work is today. Biff instructs him to get working in moving the rubble out of the way, but Lucky accidentally starts bumping into things and knocking them over, resulting in a mess. Upset, Lucky flees the scene. Everyone notices the mess he's left behind and Big Bird points to where he's gone - the laundromat (evidenced by the busted front door and skid marks). Nina and Big Bird offer to give him a talk.
SCENE 1 cont'd Nina and Big Bird find Lucky cowering behind a clothing rack, upset over the mistakes he's made. They assure him everyone makes mistakes and say he needs to keep trying, citing their own examples of overcoming personal obstacles.

SCENE 1 cont'd Nina thinks Lucky should start with a small task, like propping the bike rack back up. He's still nervous about failing again, so Big Bird and Nina sing him a song about perseverance. Soon, Lucky has enough confidence to fix all the things he knocked over earlier. Biff and Sully come by to bring Lucky back on the job, proud of his newfound self-assurance.
