Mister Rogers has been thinking about injections and has borrowed a syringe, cotton, and rubbing alcohol from a doctor. He explains what it's like to receive an injection before Picture Picture shows a film of the last time Mister Rogers received an injection. After he demonstrates the process further using two dolls, he sings Everything Grows Together.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Coach Saunders is at the castle exercising with King Friday. When Lady Elaine Fairchilde stops by with her boomerang, she turns everything upside down but has difficulty returning things to normal. With the entire Neighborhood upside down, Lady Elaine instructs Lady Aberlin to retrieve some sand which will cause a reaction from the boomerang. By placing the boomerang in the sand and saying "boomerang-toomerang-soomerang-help," the Neighborhood is turned upright. King Friday instructs Lady Elaine to keep her boomerang outside in the future -- closer to the sand. A large sandbox in the Neighborhood is suggested, as well.

Back at the house, Mrs. Rubin has stopped by with a collection of extra items used in a doctors office. Using cotton swabs, tongue depressors, syringes, and other supplies, she and Mister Rogers create various art projects.

Notes

  • It has been documented that Fred Rogers was somewhat of a shy and sickly child. This may explain his comment in this episode which suggests that he frequently received injections when he was young.
  • As can be seen from the lettering on Coach Saunders' shirt, the camera trickery used to create the upside-down effect created a mirror image as well.
