Guests Barbara Koski

It's raining in the Neighborhood and Mister Rogers arrives wearing a rain coat. He shows how his umbrella works before sharing a film about people using umbrellas.

Mr. McFeely stops by with a package. He is having trouble delivering the package since the rain has smeared the address. Using what can be read of the address, Mister Rogers helps Mr. McFeely figure out that that package is for Chef Brockett.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is bored but is quickly told by Lady Aberlin that a call was received from the president of Finland via the international telecan. The call announced a visit from singer Barbara Koski who promptly arrives. After presenting King Friday with some jewels and Queen Sara with an umbrella, Ms. Koski sings while Handyman Negri plays guitar. King Friday offers his thanks by sharing a film about places he has visited in Finland.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers waters a plant before Mr. McFeely returns with a fortune cookie from the package he delivered to Chef Brockett. His fortune reads: "Gentle ways are best."
