|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a stone which he decorates with a "C" to give to Officer and Mrs. Clemmons to use as a paperweight. Having completed the song he wrote for them -- We're Thinking of You -- Mister Rogers sits at the piano where he sings the new song. Joe Negri and Mrs. Saunders arrive and join Mister Rogers in practicing the song.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Officer and Mrs. Clemmons are visiting with Lady Elaine Fairchilde who gives them a pretend raspberry delight. When X the Owl gives them an orange, Henrietta Pussycat is upset when she has no gift for Officer and Mrs. Clemmons. When Officer Clemmons suggests that she give each of them a kiss, Henrietta gladly provides them a loving farewell.
At the castle, King Friday and Queen Sara present Officer and Mrs. Clemmons with a royal portrait for their new home. Moving on to the clock, Daniel Striped Tiger gives Officer Clemmons and his wife a polished stone and a song -- We're Thinking of You. Officer Clemmons responds by singing the song back to Daniel.
Back at the house, Betty Aberlin arrives with various kinds of raspberry delight. When Officer Clemmons and Mrs. Clemmons arrive, they enjoy the dessert with their friends as they talk about their plans for their new home. Everyone sings Little Liza Jane before Mister Rogers presents the paperweight. With everyone gathered around the piano, they sing We're Thinking of You to Officer and Mrs. Clemmons.
Mister Rogers concludes by talking about how it can be hard when friends move away.
