Word on the street: Exchange
To trade something to get something else.
Curly Bear's not so sure about giving up her binky. Elmo is trying to help, since he remembers how hard it was for him, too. He tried putting all his binkies in a box for Leela to give to her baby niece. He tried exchanging his binky for a stuffed bunny at Hooper's Store. He tried leaving it for the binky fairy. Nothing worked.
Elmo explains that he finally had a talk with Gordon about being a big monster and trying to use his binky only sometimes. Gordon and Elmo sang a goodbye song to Elmo's binky, and finally Elmo was ready to give it up. When Curly hears the song, she's ready to say goodbye to her binky too, and hands it over to Baby Bear. Everyone's so proud!
