Mister Rogers has borrowed some medical equipment to share with viewers. After unfolding the couch into a bed, he pretends that there is someone sick in the bed and that he is a doctor taking care of them. After showing how several of the medical instruments are used, Mister Rogers sings Please Don't Think It's Funny.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Nurse Miller visits the Eiffel Tower where she asks Grandpere's machine for an orange, a book, and an airplane. These items are for Tadpole Frogg who is not feeling well.

Tad is frightened when it is determined that he could benefit from a shot. Nurse Miller gives him the injection as she talks to him about what she got from Grandpere. Somewhat distracted by the conversation, Tad hardly notices the pinch of the injection. After Nurse Miller give Tad the items from the Eiffel Tower, X the Owl arrives and provides Tad with a handmade leaf pillow. After getting comfortable, Tad falls asleep as Nurse Miller sings I'm Taking Care of You.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers enjoys a glass of orange juice.
