Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers promptly feeds the fish and talks about how some animals live in the water and others live above it. Taking a piece of bread from the kitchen, he goes to the front porch where there are two baby ducklings which had been delivered by Mr. McFeely. Mister Rogers adds water to a small basin for the ducklings and feeds them pieces of the bread. Officer Clemmons stops by and sings Everybody's Fancy with Mister Rogers as they play with the ducklings.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin has a model duck she is taking to the Museum-Go-Round and she stops to show it to X the Owl on her way. Together with X, she sings I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.

As Lady Aberlin departs, Robert Troll arrives at the tree where he shares a pair of puppets he has made. He explains that the two duckling puppets are sisters that are able to answer questions yes/no questions.

After making an appointment, Robert Troll visits the castle where he tells King Friday that Sara Saturday will be soon be visiting the Neighborhood. In preparation, King Friday tries on a new robe before he and Robert Troll retire to the castle's T Room for further "troll talk."

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely has already been by to pick up the ducklings. Mister Rogers makes his own version of Robert Troll's ducklings by writing "yes" and "no" on two plastic ducks. He explains that people are able to make their own decisions and sings I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am.
