Mister Rogers arrives with a balancing scales which he describes and then encourages viewers to immitate. Taking the scales to the kitchen, Mister Rogers spends several minutes using a variety of objects to demonstrate how it works. He then sings One and One Are Two.

Officer Clemmons stops by with a telegram notifying him that he has been accepted into the Metropolitan Opera Studio. Unfortunately, this means that he and his family will be leaving the Neighborhood. Mister Rogers shares that when he was younger, he would use make-believe as a way of dealing with difficult news.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is gathered at the castle and excited in anticipation of finding out the "royal secret." After King Friday makes sure she is comfortable, Queen Sara announces that she and King Friday are expecting a baby! Officer Clemmons makes an announcement of his own as he shares his news about the Metropolitan Opera Studio.

Back at the house, Officer Clemmons sings You Are Special. Mister Rogers talks about the changes that take place when a baby comes before one last demonstration using the balancing scales.

Notes

  • Just before Make-Believe, after Officer Clemmons has shared his exciting news, Mister Rogers casually speaks a line from "It's a Very Special Day" which can be heard on the Around the Children's Corner LP.
  • Althought no "Neighbors" are listed in the credits, this episode features Francois Clemmons, Joe Negri, and Bill Barker.
