Episode Summary

Mother Goose is visiting Sesame Street! She has to write three new nursery rhymes by the end of the day, but fears she has become a rusty rhymer. Luckily, Elmo and Abby explain they are great rhymers.

Mother Goose starts writing and gets stuck rhyming "plate," but Abby comes to the rescue with "eight." When Mother Goose gets stuck on a rhyme for "done," Abby knows just the right word—"none!"

Elmo's a little upset that Abby keeps getting the rhymes before him, but Mother Goose assures him that she has two more she needs. When Abby says the rhyming words right away, though, Elmo and Abby argue. Their conflict gives Mother Goose an idea for her third rhyme, which is all about Elmo and Abby! And together they come up with just the right rhyming words.
