Bert: (reading an oatmeal recipe book, Cooking With Oatmeal) You take four cups of oatmeal...two pitted mangoes... Ernie: Hey Bert! B: ...buttermilk... E: Hey Bert! It's time for the rhyming game Bert! B: Oh, no Ernie, thanks, I don't want to play a game, I'm reading my book. E: Oh, but you'll love this game, Bert! See all you have to do is, you say something, and then I'll say something that rhymes with what you just said! B: Uh-huh, yeah, but I really don't want to play a game. E: Maybe not Bert, but we'll do it all the same! You see that, you said game and I said same, and game and same both rhyme! B: Yeah, uh-uh, rhyme, I know. But Ernie, it's just not what I want to do. E: Wiggle your finger, and waggle your shoe! (drums start) B: Uh, Ernie, I'd much rather sit and read my book. E: With ears you hear, and with eyes you look!' B: Now come on Ernie, cut this out. E: Easy old buddy, no need to shout! B: I don't want to play a game with rhymes! E: Nice going Bert, oh ring my chimes! B: I don't wanna do it! E: There's really nothing to it! B: It's so silly. E: A boy named Billy. B: Stop it, please! E: A dog has fleas! B: Oh! E: Mow! B: Ernie, please this has got to stop! E: Some people like to jump and hop! B: I don't wanna do it (Ernie interrupts)any more. E: What what hmmm? (I like this part because here Jim H. messed up and they were able to recover wonderfully) B: What what hmmm?! I don't want to do it anymore! E: Oh. One and two and three and four. B: Ernie! E: Bernie! B: Stop it! E: Mop it! B: Stop! E: Flop! B: No! E: Flow! B: Mmmmmmm....Hippopotamus! E: Ahhhhh...rhipototopus! B: Egh! Alright, alright! I give up! E: Eat from a plate and drink from a cup! B: I guess I'll just have to play along. E: It plays like a game and sings like a song! B: You may be right, I may be wrong. E: A clock goes tick and a bell goes bong. B: This game is really kinda kicky! E: Sugar's sweet and glue is sticky. B: Yeah, water is wet and dust is dry! E: Dogs gotta walk and birds gotta fly! B: It's a great kind of game to play with a friend! E: And now old buddy we've come to the end! (drums stop) B: Yah! You're right Ernie, that's a great game ... you (still in rhythm) E: Ah...w-well Bert see, I think I'm gonna go read my book now, okay? Hmm hmm hmm... B: ......
