Mister Rogers arrives with several wooden boards which he uses to add a roof to a block building inside the house. After talking about doing things in order to make them happen, Mister Rogers sings You've Got To Do It as he addes the roof.

Using the Neighborhood of Make-Believe models in the kitchen, Mister Rogers reviews the previous day's events. In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is directed to hang "No Play Allowed" signs to remind everyone of King Friday's newest order.

While everyone is unhappy about the new rule, no one is more disgruntled than Lady Elaine Fairchilde. After expressing her displeasure to King Friday himself, Lady Elaine moves her Museum Go-Round to an entirely new location. With a few mistaken stops along the way, Lady Elaine finds herself in a place where play is welcome -- a play park where she meets Barbara Russell.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers takes the Museum Go-Round model off of the table and then the other buildings as well. Then he does his best to recall where each one was previously located on the empty table. Mister Rogers talks about how Lade Elaine's neighbors must have felt when she left without saying goodbye. With this idea in mind, he sings I Like to Be Told.

Mister Roger concludes the day with a film about people moving a real house and by spending a moment playing with the block building and the toy tractor from the previous day.
