Mister Rogers arrives with a whirlpool motor which he says has been causing him some trouble over the weekend. Taking it to the back, he places it in a large bucket of water and finds that it is working properly. Back inside, Mister Rogers calls the bakery to ask about a film of Chef Brockett getting into a whirlpool. While he waits for Chef Brockett to deliver the film, Mister Rogers sings I Like to Be Told.

Chef Brockett stops by with a cupcake on a purple dish as well as the film about the whirlpool. He and Mister Rogers watch the short film as Chef Brockett describes the scenes.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri and Plumber Horne are moving the castle waterfall to the Museum Go-Round to help welcome Lady Elaine home from space. Everyone is still buzzing with excitement at the thought of Lady Elaine's big discovery which is believed to be a husband. Via radio, Lady Elaine informs Handyman Negri that she will be splashing down soon. Lady Aberlin continues to be the voice of reason as she tries to remind everyone that Lady Elaine has never mentioned anything remotely related to the idea of getting married. Unfortunately, no one is listening to her as Chef Brockett arrives with a wedding cake. Lady Elaine makes her triumphant return as she splashes down at the Museum Go-Round. She is welcomed home as everyone excitedly sings I'm Proud of You; however, Lady Elaine is somewhat confused when she is asked about her husband. Announcing that she is not getting married, Lady Elaine let's everyone know that she will reveal her wonderful discovery "on Tuesday."

Back at the house, Mister Rogers briefly talks again about spreading rumors before Elsie Neal stops by with some disappointing news. Apparently the clay pot she and Mister Rogers had made together was misplaced when it was being taken to the kiln. Before leaving, she shows a "multi-media painting" to Mister Rogers and explains that many different materials were used in the painting.

Mister Rogers concludes for the day after returning to the back yard to pick up the whirlpool.
