"Present Tense" is the first segment of the forty-ninth episode of Big City Greens.


Cricket struggles to get the best birthday present for his best friend, Remy.


The Greens head to Remy's birthday party being held at Snuggly Pete's House of Pizza. Cricket excitedly shows off his present, a small rubber ball with a green bow on it. When Vasquez checks in the present, Cricket is shocked to see that all the other presents are larger and more extravagant than the one he brought, making him feel demoralized. Remy, Kiki and Benny arrive and inform Cricket about the biggest prize at Snuggly Pete's. A stuffed dinosaur called Big Rex which is worth 10,000 tickets. Cricket plots to win the dinosaur for Remy. Meanwhile, Bill shows Tilly a whack-a-mole game that he was really good at in his youth, but Tilly attracted to the cuteness of the moles, much to Bill's confusion. Gramma Alice overhears a mother trying to find her son Brian in a jungle gym and she agrees to go and find him.

Cricket drags Remy around Snuggly Pete's trying to play games that spit tickets out. Cricket hurriedly goes through as many games to earn as much tickets as he can gather, but ignores Remy's pleas for him to stop as he is getting tired. Alice goes through the jungle gym and locates Brian who has grown mad with the isolation and the two get into a fight. Bill shows Tilly how to properly play whack-a-mole which frightens Tilly and the two argue with each other. Cricket notices that when the plug is pulled on the machines and replugged, they automatically spit tickets and heads to the power room to reboot the power to the building.

When the power reboots, Alice uses the opportunity to capture Brian and bring him back to his mother. Tilly gets all the tickets he collected and buys Big Rex to bring to Remy who has gathered everyone for the cake. Cricket slips and drops Big Rex into the cake, resulting in the candles setting off the sprinklers. Remy becomes saddened and reveals to Cricket that he did not care about the cake or Big Rex and just wanted to spend the day with him. Cricket apologizes as Bill and Tilly also apologize and decide to play air hockey. Cricket and Remy head to the photo booth which Remy wanted to do from the beginning.
