Mister Rogers invites viewers to the porch where he shows a thermometer and describes how it is read. He goes back inside to show a few other thermometers including an oral thermometer used to take a person's temperature. Describing a person who is not feeling well, Mister Rogers covers himself with a blanket on the couch as he sings Please Don't Think It's Funny.

Miss Emilie stops by for the first time in a while as she has not been feeling well. She shares a poem about people coming back before she is invited to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe by King Friday XIII.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is dressed up as X the Owl but Daniel quickly recognizes her despite the costume. Miss Emilie arrives at the clock where Daniel is very delighted to see her and presents her with a tiger lily. Miss Emile recognizes that Daniel has grown since she last saw him -- and she is amazed to find that X the Owl has really grown. Visiting the tree, she sees Henrietta Pussycat and X the Owl and realizes that the larger X is actually Lady Aberlin dressed in costume.

At the castle, King Friday welcomes Miss Emilie back and commands her to stay well. Miss Emilie shares a poem about friends returning.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how it takes time for people to get better when they are sick. He concludes by singing I'm Taking Care of You.
