Sesame Street

Oscar: Let me see. So far, we've done A-B-C-D-E-F-G-H-I-J-K-L-M.
That's enough! Let's go home!

Big Bird: Gosh, Oscar! We've got lots of letters to go. The next one is "N". So now I shall tell a story that's filled with words that start with the letter "N".

Oscar: I don't wan't to hear it.

Big Bird: Gosh, Oscar! Don't you want to hear all those "N" words with the great "nn" sound?

Oscar: No!

Big Bird: Right! "No" is an "N" word.

Oscar: Ugh!

Big Bird: Now, see if you can hear some others, Oscar.
Once upon a time, there were nine naughty noodles.

Oscar: Nine naughty noodles?

Big Bird: Sure. Now these nine naughty noodles lived in a nest.
And their names were Ned, Nat, Norman, Nathaniel, Nelly, Nan, Nancy, Norma, and Naomi.

Oscar: Oh no.

Big Bird: Now one day, Nora moved into the neighborhood.

Oscar: Nora? Another noodle I suppose.

Big Bird: (laughs) No. Nora was a nectarine.

Oscar: Naturally.

Big Bird: For Nora, the noodles learned not to be naughty but nice.

Oscar: Doesn't this story ever come to an end?

Big Bird: Ah, you want this story to come to an end?

Oscar: I sure do.

Big Bird: O.K. One day, Nora and the noodles went for a walk and found a great huge letter "N" carved at a stone.

Oscar: So?

Big Bird: So (giggles) you wanted the story to come to an end.

Oscar: Oh no, no, no, no.
