  • X the Owl: (to Big Bird) I think you've grown since I saw you at the convention!

  • Not found on the FCI web site, these are the lyrics to When A Baby Comes To Your House: When A Baby Comes To Your House It's a girl or it's a boy It's a sister or a brother But it's never just a toy It can cry and it can holler It can wet and it can coo But there's one thing it can never It can never be like you You were there before the baby Now the baby's always there Now you wait for special moments With your mother in the chair You're a very special person You are special to your mom And you dad begins to say, "You'll always be the older one." It's so good to know that always There's a special place for you And a special place for baby Right inside the family too You've a place that no one else has There is only one like you.
