Mister Rogers arrives with a small empty box. Cutting some paper in the shape of a receiver, he uses the box and some yarn to make a pretend telephone. Making a "call" to viewers, Mister Rogers sings I Like You As You Are.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Miss Nebraska -- a communication arranger -- is at the castle talking with Edgar Cooke about all of the ways that King Friday might make contact with Sara Saturday. Deciding that a phone call is best, Miss Nebraska attempts to use her bubble number finder to find Sara Saturday's number. Unfortunately, she is out of bubble finder liquid so Edgar Cooke goes inside to find some. Inside the castle, he finds King Friday exercising with Coach Saunders.

Back outside in the castle garden, Miss Nebraska and Edgar use the bubble number finder to determine Sara Saturday's phone number. The number is returned to them by way of a magical balloon. As Edgar and Coach Saunders retrieve a telephone, Miss Nebraska introduces herself to King Friday. Once the phone is in hand, a call is made to Sara Saturday who invites King Friday and Edgar Cooke to visit her house. King Friday hesitates as he is very busy and does not like change -- he would prefer Sara Saturday visit his kingdom. The others do their best to convince him otherwise.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers blows some bubbles as he sings One and One Are Two.
