Sally: Bird, why aren't you in your nest on Sesame Street?

Big Bird: The big bank took it when I defaulted on my ajustable rate morgage.

Sally: Oh no, what are you going to do?

Big Bird: Well I thought I'd move back home. This is the tree I grew up in, but my parents say there's no room for me.

I was going to put more pictures but this was the best video I could find (and therefore got the images from). I couldn't find any videos on Hulu or Fox because they only keep them for 3 weeks. Stupid right? I hope the day comes soon when every episode is on the internet with crystle clear quality and so on.
