Mister Rogers arrives with the intention of relaxing and doing things around his house that need to be done. He goes to the kitchen sink to water a plant and finds that the sink drain is clogged. After attempting to fix it himself with a plunger, Mister Rogers realizes that he needs to call a plumber.

After a phone call to Horne's Plumbing, Mister Rogers sings You Can Never Go Down the Drain while he waits in the kitchen. Audrey Roth stops by between jobs as Plumber Horne arrives to fix the drain. While Mr. Horne completes his repair job, Audrey does her best to keep the kitchen clean.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, there is a leak in the pipes leading to the castle waterfall. Handyman Negri is growing tired of holding his hand over the leak and requests that King Friday call a plumber. Mr. Horne arrives and fixes the problem by installing a recirculating waterfall.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers calls his wife to ask where his own recirculating fountain is at and is reminded that the McFeely's are borrowing it. Mrs. McFeely agrees to bring the fountain by so viewers can see how it works.


The water fountain seen in this episode is also seen in Episode 1139.

After being reminded that his fountain is on loan to the McFeely's, Mister Rogers mentions that the fountain is constantly on loan as it rotates throughout the Neighborhood staying at each home a month at a time.
