When a butterfly flutters in, they wonder where his friends are and worry that he is lonely. Elmo decides to pretend to be a butterfly so he will have a friend, but the butterfly won't come over to Elmo. Telly checks the book and learns that butterflies go through a metamorphosis, or a big change, which is made up of 4 stages-starting as an egg and changing into a caterpillar then a chrysalis and finally a butterfly. Maybe if Elmo pretends to go through the four stages, the butterfly will think Elmo is a butterfly and be his friend. It works and the butterfly flutters over and lands on Elmo. They head over to Hooper's for a snack, and after checking their book, they learn that butterflies actually drink nectar from flowers or juice from fruit. Chris prepares them a snack of sliced oranges and they watch the butterfly drink with his proboscis, which is a curly little thing that unrolls and becomes like a straw that he drinks through.
