Mister Rogers arrives with a letter he received from a man who is also interested in calligraphy. After showing the letter, Mister Rogers shares a poem he transcribed in italic script. In the kitchen, he uses his fancy pen to add the title to the poem. Unfortunately, he makes a mistake and becomes angry at himself singing What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel as he talks about dealing with anger.

Susan Linn stops by for a visit on the porch. She brings Audrey Duck along with her and introduces Mister Rogers to Catalion. Audrey is feeling somewhat insecure and does not want Mister Rogers to know Catalion fearing that he will like her less.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is at the castle attempting to cheer up Henrietta as he cleans the castle wall. Taking notice of Collette's picture at the Eiffel Tower, Handyman Negri is overhead by Henrietta as he mentions that Collette is a very "fancy lady." Feeling even more jealous and insecure, Henrietta accidentally knocks over Collette's picture as Mr. McFeely rides by on his bicycle. Mr. McFeely runs over the picture making Henrietta fear that she will be sent away for what she has done. As he helps her repair the picture, Handyman Negri sings A Handy Lady and a Handy Man.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a small black goat.

Notes

  • The poem Mister Rogers is transcribing is Tramping Winds by Ann Daley.
  • Picture Picture is displaying a drawing of the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. A slightly different version of this same picture was included as part of the 1970 Neighborhood of Make-Believe Play Set.

  • The words to A Handy Lady and a Handy Man are changes slightly since the song is being sung to Henrietta Pussycat: "A handy kitty and a handy man..."
  • Upset after Mr. McFeely rides over Collette's picture, Henrietta moves forward hard enough to lose an earring which can be heard hitting the Tower as it falls to the ground.
