Mister Rogers arrives with a punching bag -- the type used in training by boxers -- which he has borrowed from a local gymnasium. After setting up the bag, he uses a pump to fill it with air. After showing how the bag is used, Mister Rogers explains that some people might do something like this when they are angry and he sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is preparing a secret surprise for Joey Hollingsworth -- a picture he has made of the Neighborhood castle. With the help of Mrs. Frogg, he punches two holes along the picture's edge. When Mr. Hollingsworth offers to help with the secret project, of course, Handyman Negri has to refuse.

Slightly frustrated by the secrecy, Mr. Hollingsworth goes to the tree where X and Henrietta give him a few hints about the surprise. After singing I Like to Be Told, Mr. Hollingsworth moves on to the factory where he and Corney discuss his next round of business travels.

Mr. Hollingsworth is called to the castle's P Room where he is presented with a homemade book of pictures made by everyone around the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. The back of the book includes blank paper for Mr. Hollingsworth to add his own pictures. To show his appreciation, he performs a thank you dance for his friends.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about secrets before he concludes for the week by singing You're Growing.
