Bert is examining a cookie in his hand Bert: Mmmmmmm, mmmm. Ernie: (barging in) A cookie?! Oh boy a cookie! I love cookies and oh boy am I hungry! (He grabs Bert's hand and starts bringing the cookie to his mouth. Bert angrily stops him.) Bert: Ernie, ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-ho-HOLD IT! Ernie: (tries again) But it's a cookie and I'm hungry and-- Bert: (jerks away) Ernie, this is MY cookie. I've been saving it all day just for ME. Ernie: Oh but, Bert, you wouldn't share the cookie with your best friend? Bert: Ernie, I've been saving it; this cookie is for ME. Ernie: Oh but Bert, if this were my cookie, I would share it with you. Bert: (skeptical) No you wouldn't. (Bert starts to eat the cookie, Ernie stops him) Ernie: Oh but Bert, if this were my cookie, Bert if this were my cookie, I'd be glad to share it with you. (abruptly he snatches it away from Bert) Bert: Ernie! Ernie: Just a minute, Bert, just a minute. Bert: Ernie, that's my cookie! Ernie: Oh but Bert, if this were my cookie, I'd gladly share it with you. Just ask me. Bert: Ernie, that's-- Ernie: No, just ask me. Bert: This is silly. (forced) Ernie, would you share that cookie with me? Augh! Ernie: Why I'd be glad to! (He breaks it in half, gives one piece to Bert and gobbles down the other half. [Did he get lessons from Cookie Monster?) See, Bert? I told you I'd share the cookie with you. Isn't that better? (leaves) Bert: (standing bewildered with the half-cookie) I don't understand ... (Ernie pops back, asking): Say Bert, would you share that half-cookie with me-- Bert: AAAAUUUUUGGGGHH! Leave me alone!
