| || What’s the Word on the STREET?: Disguise|
(First: Episode 4173)
| ||Chris reads Abby Cadabby “The FROG Prince”, which she anxiously waits for the ending of. Chris finishes the story & Abby loves it.|
| ||As Abby walks down the STREET, she finds herself amazed that a FROG of all things could be an enchanted prince. While OSCAR deals with a man with some TRASH behind her, Abby wonders if some on SESAME STREET could be a prince. She sees OSCAR & gets the idea that he may be an enchanted prince!|
| ||In Abby’s imagination, she tells what she thinks is OSCAR's fairy tale origin. He once was a handsome, kind prince who got TRASHY treasures from his subjects, till 1 day, a Fairy GROUCHmother witnessed this & was disgusted. W/ a wave of her wand she turned him into a nasty GROUCH.|
| ||Back in reality, Abby believes it’s her duty to kiss OSCAR & make him a prince again. She tells OSCAR she’s going to kiss him, but he thinks otherwise. She floats up to his TRASH CAN, but he shuts the LID & emerges again with a protective mask on. He then hangs a “No Kissing” sign on his TRASH CAN & announces (using a megaphone) that his TRASH CAN is now a no-kissing zone & that he’ll be staying in his TRASH CAN forever (ordering from “Szechwan GROUCH” for food). Abby gets an idea how to reach him...|
| ||Abby poofs herself into OSCAR’s TRASH CAN. Abby tries to find OSCAR in the dark, but ends up smooching his PETS. Fearing he may be next, he bounces on his trampoline & sky-rockets out of his TRASH CAN.|
| ||OSCAR crashes in front of Hooper's Store, where Chris is folding napkins. OSCAR asks him for a disguise so Abby won’t recognize him & kiss him. Abby poofs herself to Hooper's Store & sees a green man who goes by the name of James Bond. She recognizes him as OSCAR. Chris settles this by making OSCAR let Abby kiss him because if nothing happens to him, Abby will see she’s wrong. Abby checks her breath & kisses OSCAR &…|
| ||…he remains the same. Abby is disappointed & thinks it was more fun in the story. Chris tells her that the FROG was a fairy tale FROG & that most FROGS are just regular FROGS & they like it like that! OSCAR expresses his desire to be a GROUCH in a song, “I DON’T Wanna Be a Prince”. Abby doesn’t mind, as she loves OSCAR anyway & begins chasing him for a hug.|
| || Jack Black wears various disguises to fool Elmo, but he sees through them each time, until he meets a chicken with Jack’s facial hair.|

After Gonnigan & Abby demonstrate, he tries to use their opposite spell on Gonnigan, but uses it on himself instead. Suddenly, Blögg becomes the opposite of himself, wearing posh clothing & being obsessed with cleanliness (constantly giving Niblet a bath). Gonnigan likes having a less-disgusting friend around now, but Opposite-Blögg ruins their playtime by putting away their blocks & refusing to wear the wrinkled costumes. Abby & Gonnigan learn that to change him back, Blögg has to do the spell on himself. Abby tempts him with his favorite stinky cheese, but he instead is frightened by it. Everyone muses about the old Blögg, making him realize the right thing to do is to change himself back.

He tries to observe the sand, but finds it just falls through his fingers. He discovers a shell in his palm & the creatures suggest he use something to sift the sand & find the ring. Grover pulls a bagel from his utility sock, but it doesn't work as a sifter & is promptly swiped by a seagull. He then pulls some Swiss cheese, which has smaller holes, but doesn't work & the seagull takes it ("The gall of that gull.").

As they climb the hill, they start to sink in until Velvet helps them out. Next, they go under the Froggies Five, who musically count off.
