The others start to see the potential, but Prairie's beliefs about boys being superheroes is confirmed when Super Grover lands on the scene ("I am the total package," he says).

However, Abby becomes a pirate instead, while Cookie Monster dons a tutu.

SCENE 1 cont'd Prairie decides to quit playing, insisting that the whole game is being played wrong. Chris and Nina overhear and lead a song, explaining boys and girls can be anything they want to be.
