Mister Rogers turns down the lights and uses a flashlight to look for various objects in the room. With the lights back on, he uses a sheet to cover a picture in the kitchen to show that it is still there even though it cannot be seen.

After pouring himself a glass of milk, Mister Rogers turns down the lights again and talks about nighttime. Sitting quietly, he sings Please Don't Think It's Funny.

Miss Emilie stops by and shares a poem about nighttime and the light of the moon. Picture Picture shows images of the moon as Miss Emilie reads the poem a second time.

It is nighttime in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe and X the Owl is watching the moon. Handyman Negri has been called by Lady Elaine Fairchilde for a drink of water. He stops at the tree on his way and sings To Go To Someplace Else with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat.

At Someplace Else, Handyman Negri provides Lady Elaine with a drink before she sings Some Things I Don't Understand. Handyman Negri quietly calms the mood by singing Tree Tree Tree. Lady Elaine continues singing after Handyman Negri returns to the castle.

Back at the house, Handyman Negri stops by with his guitar and plays Tomorrow with Mister Rogers.


The poem read by Miss Emilie is "Silver" by Walter de la Mare.

As Miss Emilie is leaving the house, and again as Mister Rogers prepares to leave, the shadow of the boom microphone can be seen in the top left corner of the screen.
