Ernie imagines life without Bert.
This is a funny sketch, and I want to mention all the funny bits, but I have to say that it kind of sends shivers down my spine when Ernie says, "And what if I get sick?"
For some reason, it is funny to me that Bert keeps saying "the favorite chair."
ERNIE: Right now I'm going to go in the other room and bathe your guppies, okay?
Sometimes Bert & Ernie do sketches or songs by themselves or with other characters, and that's okay, but they're always at their best and funniest together. They're like peanut butter and jelly. No, even more fundamental than peanut butter and jelly...like peanut butter and bread. Which reminds me of a sketch we should do tomorrow.
