Mister Rogers shows a pair of ice skates before visiting Peggy Fleming at an ice skating rink where they talk about the importance of practice. Ms. Fleming demonstrates her skills before Mister Rogers joins her on the ice for a few pointers.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine realizes that what she has done to the King Friday dolls was wrong and she, along with Lady Aberlin and the Chief of Discipline, determines that an appropriate may of making up for her actions would be to work two days at the factory. Lady Elaine makes the most of her punishment and begins her work immediately in effort to make Corney's factory more organized.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings The Truth Will Make Me Free and talks about how sometimes things are difficult when you are young.
