Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of handlebars which he first uses for horns as he pretends to be a bull. He also shows how to be a bull by using your fingers. The handlebars fit into a stationary bicycle which Mister Rogers demonstrates before going outside where he talks about running in place. Mr. McFeely delivers a dumbbell which allows Mister Rogers to demonstrate weight lifting.

After Mister Rogers sings I Like You As You Are, Lady Aberlin stops by to borrow some sugar on behalf of those at the castle in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. Before she leaves, she tries out the stationary bicycle.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin delivers the borrowed sugar to Edgar Cooke just before King Friday enters the castle garden. He requests to have a meeting with Sara Saturday who is working in the castle kitchen. She has been preparing cup custard -- one of King Friday's favorite treats. Lady Aberlin helps Sara Saturday prepare for her meeting with the King.

King Friday returns to the castle garden wearing his finest crown. He is somewhat surprised that Sara Saturday is more interested is his "beautiful eyes." She expresses her thanks to King Friday for allowing her to stay at the castle when she was recently frightened by the "red monster." The King is flattered to find that Sara Saturday has prepared cup custard and when it comes time for her to leave, he requests that she stay longer. Noticing that King Friday is clearly smitten, Lady Aberlin sings Then Your Heart is Full of Love.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Then Your Heart is Full of Love before Mr. McFeely returns to pick up the dumbbell. Mr. McFeely takes a moment to try the stationary bicycle and is complimented by Mister Rogers on his "beautiful eyes."
