LOOK HOW HAPPY SHE IS!
Part One: Bert attempts to tell Ernie that he has a banana in his ear, but Ernie cannot hear him because he has a banana in his ear.
Bert: (sees Ernie with a banana in his ear) Ernie? (Ernie does not respond) Hey, uh, Ern?
Ernie: (sees him) OH! Hi, Bert!
Bert: Hey, Ernie, you know that you have a banana in your ear?
Ernie: What was that, Bert?
Bert: (more loudly) I said, you have a banana in your ear, Ernie. Bananas are food. They are to eat, not to put in your ear, Ernie!
Ernie: What did you say, Bert?
Bert: (shouting) WILL YOU JUST TAKE THAT BANANA OUT OF YOUR EAR?!
Ernie: I’m sorry, you’ll have to speak a little louder, Bert! I can’t hear you! I have a banana in my ear! (Bert rumples in anger)
Part Two: Bert comes back and Ernie reveals to him that he uses the banana to keep the alligators away. He uses Bert’s denial of there being alligators on Sesame Street as proof that his method works.
(Later Bert comes back, while Ernie still has the banana in his ear.)
Ernie: Oh! Hi, Bert!
Bert: You still have that banana in your ear?
Bert: (more loudly) I said, you still have that banana in your ear!
Ernie: (hears him, then nods) Yeah, Bert. I know.
Bert: You know? Ernie, why is that banana still in your ear?
Ernie: Listen Bert. I use the banana to keep the alligators away!
Bert: Alligators?? Ernie, there are no alligators on Sesame Street!
Ernie: Right! It’s doing a good job. Isn’t it, Bert? (chuckles while Bert rumples in anger again)
My favorite childhood characters! <3
