SCENE 1
Gabi makes her way over to OSCARs TRASH CAN from the courtyard to see what OSCAR is doing. In preparation of SLIMEY’s return from the moon, he’s getting SLIMEY’s bed ready. Gabi bets that he’s excited, but OSCAR counters that it's just SLIMEY: his "little MUD button," his "little space hero back from the universe at last." OSCAR’s spent a lot of time planning his return with a mint laid out on the bed, & a fresh apple to eat. Gabi gets that he’s secretly happy to have SLIMEY coming home today, but reminds OSCAR that he still has to get from space back to the Earth.

SCENE 2
Elmo, Zoe, Gina, Rosita, Telly, Mr. Handford, Linda, Bob & Celina join the group Around the Corner where the training officer is running the show from mission control. Although the Wiggleprise crew isn't quite ready to land yet, she has prepared a posterboard presentation to recount the adventure that took WORM astronauts where no WORM had ever gone before. She explains that a capsule ejected from the ship will land in the Atlantic Ocean, its fall softened by a parachute & the open seas. At the news of this splashdown event, OSCAR recalls that SLIMEY didn't take any water wings with him.

OSCAR is assured that SLIMEY won't get hurt; the Atlantic Ocean is so big, who could miss that?
