Mister Rogers arrives with photographs of his parents as well as some from his own wedding day. He talks about being a boy and thinking he would grow up to marry his mother. Mister Rogers then sings Going to Marry Mom.

At Brockett's Bakery, Chef Brockett is featuring a special, compliments of Jose Cisneros. In the kitchen, Jose shows Mister Rogers how he makes arroz con leche (rice with milk).

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara and Lady Aberlin decide to sprinkle flower petals on the bride and groom at the wedding rather than rice since wasting food is not a good idea. At the Museum-Go-Round, Betty Okonak Templeton finds Lady Aberlin and Lady Elaine wearing their bridesmaids' dresses. She invites Lady Aberlin along as she talks to Daniel about his ring bearer worries. They find that Daniel is concerned with the ring falling off the pillow as well as having to "wear a bear costume." A piece of tape on the pillow and an explanation of the word "bearer" sets Daniel's mind at ease. Meanwhile, at the castle, King Friday is preparing his speech for the wedding.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers explains the difference between a "bear" and a "bearer" before he sings You Are Special.


While most products used on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood are marked with generic labels featuring only the name of the product itself, the rice shown in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe is a "name brand": Neighborhood Rice.
