A limousine stops by Hooper's Store. The man inside asks Mr. Hooper for an old-fashioned egg cream. When Mr. Hooper says yes, James Earl Jones excitedly enters. As Mr. Hooper makes the drink, he recognizes the movie star. He asks him to autograph a paper plate. Big Bird enters and learns about movie stars. Bob and Maria enter and are so star-struck that they prevent Mr. Jones from sipping his drink. Mr. Hooper makes him another one. James Earl Jones enjoys the egg cream just as he remembered. Later Big Bird returns in his movie star costume. The adults play along asking for his autograph. Big Bird heads out the door, sees the limo and gets in. Mr. Hooper makes another egg cream for James Earl Jones to go. As they all leave the store, the limo drives off with Big Bird in the backseat.
