[A very pregnant Maria berates with a silent Big Bird in front of Gordon's and Susan's apartment in Sesame Street during the middle of the night, as she goes into labor whilst criticizing Big Bird's size and height]
Maria: [to Big Bird] You think you are pretty big, don't you? Hmph! Well, I bet I can be bigger than you. In fact,
[Maria turns herself around towards the viewer, and then faces the viewer]
Maria: you are nothing compared to how big I could be.
[Big Bird walks off in a huff]
Maria: [to the viewer] Just look at this.
[Maria turns her head around towards the right side of the screen, and back to the viewer, and then takes the very first very long deep cleansing breath of air slowly and deeply, and her stomach and body begins to grow bigger, and bigger, and bigger, and bigger]

Narrator: Wanda the Witch lives somewhere west of Washington. Around her waist, instead of a belt, she wore a worm. Wanda had a pet weasel. And, on her head, a wiry wig. On Wednesday, in the middle of winter, Wanda walked to the well to get water to wash her wig. But, the wheel on the well was worn, and Wanda grew weary. So, she waved her wand, and her washtub filled with warm water. But, just as Wanda was about to drop her wig into the warm water, a wild wind slipped her wig from her hand, and blew it away forever. Which taught Wanda this lesson: witches, who wash their wigs on windy winter Wednesdays, are wacky.

Narrator: This is the cat that sat on my hat. This is the goat that jumped on my coat. This is the fox that ran off with my socks. These are the ants that chewed up my pants. These are the flies that borrowed my ties. This is the moth that ate up my cloth. This is the glutton who ate my last button. And this is me.

[in the forest, a little girl, and her mother are walking through the woods towards a garden, as they explore the secrets and wonders of nature; the little girl asks her mother a question about one of the secrets and wonders of nature itself]
Girl: [to her mother] Mama, how do butterflies make more butterflies?
Girl's Mother: Well, let's go to the garden, and we'll find out.
[in the garden, we see two butterflies, a male one, and a female one, as they both begin a courtship display by showing off their wings; the two butterflies then clasp themselves together to mate, as they both fertilize their egg and sperm cells together; one of the two butterflies watched, as the other butterfly lays her eggs on a nearby leaf; and finally, the two butterflies both fly off into the distance as they abandoned the eggs; we see a close-up view of the butterfly eggs]
Narrator: Eggs.
[we see through the butterfly eggs, as we see the tiny caterpillars developing inside them; we take a closer look at one of the butterfly eggs, as one of the tiny caterpillars begins to move around; we see the rest of the tiny caterpillars moving around within the butterfly eggs]
Narrator: Caterpillars.
[the tiny caterpillars all hatched out of the butterfly eggs, and then begin to explore the world around them; we see the tiny caterpillars crawl around the ground, as they munch on some leaves on some nearby plants; the tiny caterpillars grew into bigger caterpillars, as colors begin to show on their bodies; the bigger caterpillars continue to crawl around the ground, as they munch on some leaves on some nearby plants; the caterpillars crawled off into the distance, and then disappeared into hiding; one of the caterpillars stopped by to look at the viewer, and then crawls off into the distance; some time later, the caterpillar is crawling on a tree branch, and then crawls right towards underneath the tree branch, and finally hangs upside down; the caterpillar begins to produce and turn into a chrysalis, as he weaves the chrysalis from his tail upside down, then all around his body, and then right up to his head, and finally his entire body is all covered up and hidden inside the chrysalis; the leaves fall off the trees, as autumn falls in the garden, then snow falls to the ground, as winter falls in the garden; the new year begins, as the snow melts away, and then spring falls in the garden; suddenly, the caterpillar has turned into a newly butterfly while he was inside the chrysalis, as he hatches out of the chrysalis, and then crawls onto the top of the chrysalis; the butterfly's body grew long and slender, and the butterfly's wings grew big and colorful; the butterfly begins to leap into the air, and then starts flying around the garden; suddenly, the butterfly notices a nearby flower down below, and then flies down to take a closer look at it; the butterfly lands on the flower's petals, and then looks at the flower's center; the butterfly sticks out his long proboscis, and then sticks it into the flower's center; the butterfly drank up all the nectar out of the flower, shoots his long proboscis back into his mouth, and then looks at the viewer with glee, as the camera zooms in close into the butterfly's head; the butterfly flies off by abandoning the flower, and then flies around the garden, and finally abandons the garden by flying off into the distance, and then lands onto the ground; the screen then pans out, and we see that the butterfly is in the middle of a field, as the butterfly looks around, and then calls out by screaming uncontrollably at the viewer]
Butterfly: [calling] HEY, TIBI!!!!!!!!!!
[the butterfly continues looking around, and then looks at the viewer, as the music ends in the background]
