Mister Rogers brings with him a box full of colored blocks. He takes them to the kitchen were he uses them to build a bridge. He also has with him a handful of marbles which he shows before watching films on how people use and make marbles.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine and Lady Aberlin take Bob Dog with them to Southwood to find out what exactly is going on.
Upon their arrival, they learn that the parts Corney made have been used to build a bridge, not for building bombs.
While they are there, Keith, the Southwood carpenter, sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel. King Friday is embarrassed when he learns that there are no bombs in Southwood and declares that his generals are not "generals of peace."
Mister Rogers concludes this episode with a few interesting comments about rules: "Rules are very, very important. Not just for games but for all things. Even big things like countries. Countries have to have rules to protect people, too. And someday you'll be helping to make the rules for your country. I trust that you'll make the best kind you know how."
