When Big Bird briefly steps out of his nest to retrieve a fallen Radar, Minnie occupies his nest. She states the bird rule is "finders keepers, losers weepers" and the nest now belongs to her, even taking the liberty of changing the name on the mailbox. When the conflict is taken to the Supreme Bird Court, Minnie insists rules are rules. However, when she drops her favorite teddy bear and Chris claims it's his now, she sees how Big Bird must have felt. She gives him his nest back and gets her teddy back as well.
