|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers has been helping with the Speedy Delivery service and arrives with a list of tasks to be completed. One of the tasks, involving Elsie Neal, is unclear so Mister Rogers attempts to call her for clarification.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is practicing the bass violin by playing The People You Like the Most for Queen Sara when Lady Aberlin arrives. The King and Queen are somewhat concerned as there is something clearly bothering their niece.
At the tree, Lady Aberlin seeks some help from X the Owl as she asks, "What is love?" Consulting his Benjamin Franklin book, X only finds that love is good but not what love actually is.
Moving on, Lady Aberlin presents Robert Troll with the same question. Robert Troll tries to explain that "love is a feeling...you have feel it." Lady Elaine suggests that Lady Aberlin talk with Queen Sara about love.
At the castle, Queen Sara explains that "understanding love is one of the hardest things in the world." She helps Lady Aberlin come to the realization that love is a wonderful feeling, regardless of whether it is understood.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Many Ways to Say I Love You before receiving a return phone call from Elsie Neal. Ms. Neal clarifies that she needs Mister Rogers to pick up some costumes for delivery.
In her work room, Elsie Neal is working on some costumes for a "big wild play at the college." Mister Rogers tries on several of the costumes including one that looks like King Friday. Ms. Neal shows a few masks made by Neighborhood children before Mister Rogers leaves with the costumes to be delivered.
Concluding for the day, Mister Rogers sings You Are Special.
