Mister Rogers arrives fully prepared for some household chores. Having moved the furniture and washed the floor already, he applies a fresh coat of wax to the kitchen floor as he sings I'd Like To Be Just Like Mom and Dad.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a free sample of liquid detergent which he explains can be used for both cleaning dishes and making bubbles.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mr. McFeely continues distributing the liquid soap samples. At the clock, Lady Aberlin and Daniel Striped Tiger use the soap to blow bubbles as they talk about King Friday and Sara Saturday. Daniel recognizes that the King and Sara Saturday like each other very much and wonders if they will get married. Lady Aberlin sings You're Growing after she explains that this sort of news is something that people like to share themselves.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers moves the table and chairs back into the kitchen where the floor has dried. Sitting at the table, he enjoys some custard and milk as he talks about the many ways that children can help with household chores. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers sings Parents Were Little Once Too.
