Mister Rogers arrives with a set of nesting boxes. As he opens each one to find a smaller box, he eventually finds a thimble inside the smallest box. He shows a collection of other items that hold things like a small baby carriage, a kangaroos pouch, and a mail box.

After Mister Rogers sings I Think I'm Going to Like Today, Mrs. Rubin stops by with several homemade pillows which Neighborhood children have made for Edgar Cooke.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Daniel Striped Tiger describes to Dr. Marchl how Lady Elaine had been trying to take Edgar Cooke's special pillow. For safe keeping, he has put his pillow in a safe and is feeling uneasy about his attachment to the pillow. Edgar Cooke comes to the castle garden with his pillow locked in the safe and talks with Dr. Marchl about his feelings of embarrassment. Dr. Marchl reminds Edgar of the pillows made for him by the Neighborhood children and also recognizes the special nature of Edgar's favorite pillow. Daniel sings Please Don't Think It's Funny.

Lady Elaine Fairchilde stops by the castle to show off the new toy she has found -- a boomerang. She assures Edgar that his soft pillow is safe and she will never try to take it again.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers shows his own personal safe before singing Please Don't Think It's Funny.


The combination to Mister Rogers' safe is 27-42.
