Waiter! Oh… eating outside makes me really hungry! The waiters are on roller skates… maybe I’ll get lunch faster! Waiter!
(Grover skates by.)
Grover


Just a minute, sir!
Fat Blue


Oh, no, not him again! What is he doing, following me?Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.13.44 PM
Grover


Good day, sir, and welcome to Charlie’s Outdoor Al Fresco Fresh Air Cafe. Where you eat outside, and breathe the lovely fresh air. (Grover breathes.)
Fat Blue


I’d like something to eat, please.
Grover


You know, sir, even if you cannot SEE air, it is all around us. We breathe it, and is it not lovely when it is fresh, like the air here in Charlie’s Fresh Air Cafe.Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.13.47 PM
Fat Blue


Oh, yes, it is. But how about some fresh food?
Grover


I shall get you a menu, sir.
(As Grover skates away, the wind picks up. Fat Blue’s napkin blows away.)
Fat Blue


Whoa! Hey. Really getting windy out here. Hmm.Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.13.52 PM
(Grover is blown back to the table.)
Grover


Whoa-oa! Oh, sorry, sir. Here is your menu.
(Zzip!)
Fat Blue


It blew away!
Grover


Of course! Air moves things, and when fresh air moves, it becomes WIND… and when air becomes wind, air moves things, like that, like menus. Yeah.Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.13.56 PM
(Zzip!)
Grover


And flowers. Uh, I will get you another menu, sir.
Fat Blue


Forget the menu, forget the menu! I think I’ll eat inside.
Grover


There is a twenty minute wait inside, sir. That means an hour for sure. May I suggest a cheeseburger? It is nourishing, and it is HEAVY.
Fat Blue


All right, all right! A cheeseburger!Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.03 PM
Grover


Fine.
(Grover struggles against the wind on his skates.)
Grover


Charlie! Get me a cheesburger on a lead plate! Boy, I think there’s a hurricane out there! Oh! Phew!Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.09 PM
Fat Blue


Oh, I’m really hungry… maybe this air will quiet down.
(Zzip!)
Fat Blue


Oh. Uh oh.Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.16 PM
Grover


Wish me luck, Charlie!
(Grover pushes out through the doors. He’s blown by the wind, and smacks into the table.)
Grover


Whaaa-aaaa-aaaaa! Phew.Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.20 PM
Grover


Here you are, sir.
(Zzzzip! Splat.)
Grover


Eureka! Air can also move cheeseburgers!
Fat Blue


My cheeseburger blew away… That does it! I’m getting out of here!Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.25 PM
Grover


Oh, no, not so fast, sir. You forgot to pay your check.
Fat Blue


Check?
Grover


Mmm hm. Yeah. That’s 5.50 for the burger.
(As Grover puts the check on the table, the wind dies.)Screen shot 2011-08-08 at 12.14.29 PM
Fat Blue


But… what about the wind?
Grover


That’s another thing about the wind. It is never there when you need it. Is it, sir?
