SCENE 1
cont'd
Suddenly, the Grouchytowners show up at Oscar's trash can & Oscar instructs them on how to plan "for niceness." They've got their sunglasses in case of smiley faces, & nose plugs so they won't smell any cookies baking, but Worby doesn't have a helmet to protect his head from being patted. Just then, they see Bob & Maria waving to someone, & smell his vanilla ice cream cone, but luckily they've prepared for that already. As they walk past him, he pats Worby's bare head, which upsets him.

Kermit, doing a "slow-breaking human interest story," asks monsters at a day care center what they want to be when they grow up, & every time they tell him, he rewards them with a cookie. Cookie Monster, posing as a baby ("Cry cry cry, sniffle sniffle sniffle"), claims he wants to be an orthodontist. However, Kermit gets wise to his scheme, & instead rewards him with a wind-up toy bridge of false teeth.

SCENE 3
Oscar points the Grouchytowners' attention to something disgusting: Bob & Linda, a couple, sitting together. They go near them, but he asks for them to leave so he can be alone with her. He then gets an idea: he talks to her in sign language without speaking, thus driving the Grouches away. As they leave, he pats Worby's unprotected head once again. (Oscar: "Don't complain to me, Mr. I-don't-need-a-helmet!")
