  • Yeah, Chris still has lots of huggable toys there!

  • - Mm-mm.

  • - I take it that was a no.

  • - Oh, Elmo understands Curly Bear.

  • - Excuse me?

  • - Elmo's not ready!

  • Elmo wants yellow binky back, please!

  • - Okay, buddy, no problem. - Please?

  • Hurry up, Chris. - Okay, okay, okay.

  • I'm just rinsing it!

  • All right.

  • Okay, buddy.

  • Here you go.

  • (Elmo sucks on binky)

  • How's that?

  • - Here's bunny back.

  • - Elmo, you know what?

  • You keep the bunny, okay?

  • And when you're ready

  • you can just bring me back the binky.

  • - Okay, let me get this straight.

  • So the bunny didn't wo- (Elmo suckles)

  • Ah, Elmo?

  • Elmo?

  • - Oh, sorry Baby Bear!
