Episode Summary

Elmo is in love with his favorite book, Lucy the Lazy Lizard. He loves it so much that he asks Maria to read it to him again for the 11th time that morning. She agrees and reads the story of Lucy the Lazy Lizard who lounged lazily on her lovely little log when a long, loud train came lumbering down the tracks heading straight for her.This is Elmo's favorite part. Lucy is luckily the strongest lizard in Lackawanna, and she lifts the tracks over her head at the last minute so that the train passes right over. That was close. Now who can Elmo find to read him the story again?

He comes upon Telly who is playing with his train set. There's no time though because the Triangle Express has to get triangles to Tuscaloosa. But wait, the triangles have already gone to Tuscaloosa! This gives Elmo an idea- maybe the triangles could go to Lackawanna instead. Telly loves this idea because who doesn't need triangles in Lackawanna. Elmo goes on to tell his favorite story about Lucy as Telly excitedly acts it out with his train set.
