Mister Rogers arrives with a container of pepper corns and a pepper mill. He talks about how pepper is ground and how it can make a person sneeze. Mister Rogers recalls a favorite teacher from his youth -- Miss Albert -- who had a very loud sneeze. In the kitchen, he sprinkles a small amount of pepper into a pie pan of water. By placing a bar of soap into the water, he shows how the pepper is pushed away by the soap.

The pie pan reminds Mister Rogers of the letter O and he asks Picture Picture to share a film called "Looking for Letters."

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde, Daniel Striped Tiger, and Bob Dog have just watched a "scary story" about a witch. They talk about their feelings and remind themselves that the story was just pretend. At the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine is frightened when she thinks she sees a witch. Bob Dog and Daniel seek help from Miss Paulificate who discovers that the "witch" is just a kite stuck in a tree. Of course, Lady Elaine claims that she knew it all along.

Back at the house, Chef Brockett stops by on his way back from a doctor's appointment where he got a "great report." Taking him to the kitchen, Mister Rogers shows him the trick using pepper and soap. Chef Brockett shares an experiment of his own by sprinkling sugar into the water which causes the pepper to move back where it started. Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers and Chef Brockett sing Sometimes People Are Good.
