Mister Rogers arrives with a basket of vegetables given to him by Chef Brockett. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers shows various vegetables and talks about how "some are very fancy on the outside and some are very fancy on the inside." After Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy, Chef Brockett stops by on his way to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe with a tray of cooked vegetables. In the kitchen, Mister Rogers helps as Chef Brockett makes a bowl of mashed potatoes.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, X the Owl is still dressed as Benjamin Franklin when Coach Saunders stops by the tree for some exercise. As Coach Saunders leaves, Chef Brockett arrives with his cooked vegetables. Since Benjamin Franklin was a vegetarian, X is happy to sample each of the foods.

Stopping at the castle, Chef Brockett shares some of the vegetables with Edgar Cooke.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how it is important to try different foods ("vegetables are for trying, not crying") as he sings more of Everybody's Fancy.
