Just as they pass OSCARs TRASH CAN, they both notice a sign for a GROUCH Reunion. While they look at the sign, OSCAR pops up out of his TRASH CAN to warm up from the cold water in his swimming pool. The pair are amazed that there is a swimming pool in OSCARs TRASH CAN. he then tells them that he also has an ice-skating rink & a bowling alley.

In "Berts Birthday", Ernie is the 1st to wish Bert a Happy Birthday (at 6:00 in the morning). Ernie has planned a special day, including a breakfast of only B words to celebrate Berts Birthday (both B words), they travel on a Bus to the Beach (more B words), & while there they dine on Bologna, Burpee Soda, 3-Bean salad & Brownies, that Ernie has packed in a Big basket. Once home, Bert is surprised with a party, where all the gifts begin with the letter B.

"The End of the Day" finds Ernie sitting on the front stoop of 123 SESAME STREET, observing the residents of SESAME STREET as the day draws to a close. He watches tiny bugs fly around, watches Luis close up the Fix-It Shop & wishes on the 1st star of the night.
