B: *sigh*
E: and then i have my handy dandy pencil sharpener. and i have my eraser here bert for any mistakes i might make, see i can erase them.
B: uh-huh.
E: and i have a waste paper basket to put in .. a waste paper basket ... bert, have you seen my waste paper basket?

B: of course it's your waste basket!! you put it on my head!
E: oh, thank you bert.
B: yeah, thank you.
E: that's my waste paper basket for throwing stuff in when i make a mistake, you see?
B: ok, now ernie, ernie. you have planned your whole adventure in writing a story.
E: that's true.
B: all planned to the last detail ... all planned.
E: right.
B: ok, now go to it.
E: ok, i'll see you around.
B: ho, ho wait, well, where are you going?
E: i'm going to go outside and play in the puddles.
B: but why?
E: well, you see bert, i can't think of anything to write right now, bert. but, when i do think of something, i have it all planned. and thanks to you bert, i couldn't have done it without you. mmm mmm mmm mmm.
(bert rests his head on the basket and shakes it in disappointment)
