YoB&E: Day 10--"I Wish I Had a Friend"

In today's sketch, Ernie would rather go off and play with Rubber Duckie than play with Bert's bottlecap collection, so Bert sings a song about being lonely.

"I Wish I Had a Friend to Play With Me"

This one is perhaps most notable for the reversal at the beginning; usually it's Ernie following a disinterested Bert around and trying to get him to play a game. Otherwise, I don't have a lot to say except for some random impressions:

How would you play with Bert's bottlecap collection when they're all mounted on a pegboard?

Possibly the funniest line in the whole sketch: "Bert, I refuse to be a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal." I would love to have that printed on a t-shirt.

I guess marching bands do sometimes give indoor concerts and whatnot, but nonetheless, I don't think I've ever had to stand in line to hear a marching band.

It is, in fact, really nifty the way Bert dances the Pigeon.

Can you play "Hide'n'Seek" with someone if you don't tell them that's what you're doing? In that case, isn't it just a game of "Hide"?
