Sesame Street

Little Girl: "This looks like a good place to put this letter Y. It's a letter that comes after X and just before Z. I bet Grover doesn't know what this letter is!"

Grover: "Skedaddle... skedaddle... skaddle-UP! I bet you think Grover does not know what this letter is."

Little Girl: "Well, Grover, do you?"

Grover: "No."

Little Girl: "I didn't think so."

Grover: "It's very pretty! It starts out with one line at the bottom and splits into two lines at the top."

Little Girl: "That's what it looks like. But what is this letter called?"

Grover: "I do not know. Tell me."

Little Girl: "Y." (sounds like "Why?")

Grover: "Because I want to know."

Little Girl: "Y."

Grover: "So I can be smart. Please tell me."

Little Girl: "I already did!"

Grover: "You did?"

Little Girl: "Hmm-hmm."

Grover: "Would you tell me again?"

Little Girl: "Y."

Grover: "Because I did not hear you before."

Little Girl: "Y."

Grover: "I don't know! Maybe my ears are on backwards! How should I know?!"

Little Girl: "Grover, let me give you a little hint."

Grover: "All right."

Little Girl: "This is the letter that you hear at the beginnings of words like yellow, yarn, year, and yo-yo."

Grover: "Hmm... It has a cute little yih-yih sound, but I do not know what it is called."

Little Girl: "Y."

Grover: "Maybe because NO ONE WILL TELL ME!"

Little Girl: "Y!"

Grover: "How should I know?! Maybe no one likes me!"

Little Girl: "Y!"

Grover: (crying) "I don't know why no one likes me! I try to be so nice..."

Little Girl: "The answer is Y! Y-Y-Y! The letter is called Y, like W, X, Y, Z!"

Grover: "...That's the letter Y?"

Little Girl: "That's what I've been trying to tell you!"

Grover: "... I am sooo embarrassed..."
