  • Quotes

    • 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.

  • Notes

    • This was the last time Rogers performed the song "When A Baby Comes To Your House."

    • Rogers' sole visit to Sesame Street aired just days before this episode debuted.

    • Rogers had wanted to speak with a costumed Carroll Spinney in this episode, and in the course of this dialogue, he wanted Spinney to take off the Big Bird head. Spinney declined.
