When he arrives, Mister Rogers goes outside to visit the grave for the fish he buried the previous day. Back inside, he sings You Are Special after talking about feeling sad about the loss of something or someone close.

Taking out the book he brought with him, Mister Rogers looks for small details in each of the book's pictures.

At Negri's Music Shop, Joe Negri introduces Mister Rogers to the Tamburitzans, a group of young musicians who play while others dance. Mr. Negri loans Mister Rogers a cassette recording of the Tamburitzans' music.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri plays with the Trolley's whistle before he is startled from behind by Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Lady Elaine wants the Platypus egg to hatch so Elsie Jean can "get back to work at the restaurant." Having taken care of his royal duties at the castle, Handyman Negri offers to help Lady Elaine in Elsie Jean's absence.

At the Platypus mound, Handyman Negri and Lady Elaine talk with Dr. Bill who expects the egg to hatch very soon. He explains to Lady Elaine that Elsie Jean will not be returning to work as soon the egg is hatched. Frustrated, Lady Elaine announces that she will be moving the pie restaurant from the rocket to the Museum-Go-Round. As she and Handyman Negri move the restaurant, they sing A Handy Lady and a Handy Man.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers briefly plays the tape given to him by Mr. Negri and concludes by talking about the upcoming arrival of a baby platypus in Make-Believe.
