Mister Rogers arrives with construction paper which takes to the kitchen. Using the paper and a hole punch, he plans to make a book of some pictures he has received from viewers. As he punches holes in the paper, Mister Rogers sings You Are Special.

When it comes time to put the book together, he realizes that he has left the paper fasteners at the store. Just as Mister Rogers is about to go back to the store, Officer Clemmons arrives at the house with the paper fasteners and mentions that Friday will be Chef Brockett's birthday. Officer Clemmons sings Today is a Special Day -- the song he will sing for Chef Brockett.

With the paper fasteners, Mister Rogers returns to the kitchen and is able to put the book together.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde has removed the number 5 from the Museum-Go-Round and given it to Grandpere. Officer Clemmons explains her actions by singing Sometimes People Are Good. In place of the number 5, Lady Elaine has placed the numbers 1-10 on each pillar of the Museum-Go-Round.

At the castle, King Friday realizes that Lady Elaine has more numbers than he does and he orders that all house numbers are to be removed. Lady Elaine refuses to take down her numbers: "When you want to be number one all the time, you've got a second thought coming." Queen Sara assures King Friday that she likes the castle with any number on it as long as they are together.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers has used more construction paper to make a cook book for Chef Brockett.
