Mister Rogers arrives with a lamp he was given by the Clemmons family. The lamp shows the image of a moving waterfall when it is turned on. He opens the lamp to show how it works on the inside. Mister Rogers remembers his weekend trip to visit Francois Clemmons -- specifically the fun of the street fair outside the Clemmons' apartment building.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII explains why water no longer flows from the castle waterfall: "Sometimes you want it on and sometime you want it off. It's very difficult to turn it on and off, so I've just been leaving it off." Meanwhile, X the Owl asks for the help of Queen Sara and Lady Aberlin in finding his "hide and find" lesson from the Owl Correspondence School. The clues they find leads them to Mr. McFeely who has a congratulatory message from the OCS.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses some flexible tubing to bend into the letters "O-C-S." Visiting Negri's Music Shop, he meets oboist Jim Byars who demonstrates various woodwind instruments.
