Mister Rogers arrives with a music box with a dancer on the top. He shows how the figure dances as the music plays.

On the porch, Mister Rogers waits for a visit from Ella Jenkins and Chuck Aber by singing You Are Special. Upon their arrival, Ms. Jenkins and Mr. Aber demonstrate a variety of songs that include hand motions such as One Potato Two Potato, Hambone, and Head and Shoulders.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is continuing their plans to creatively showcase their talents in the bass violin festival. Dressed as a bass violin, Miss Paulificate plans to tap dance while Lady Aberlin plans to dance with an actual bass violin.

At the clock, Lady Aberlin talks to Daniel about her worries about not being able to play the bass violin in the festival. Worried about sharing her troubles with King Friday but Daniel convinces her that telling the truth will help her feel better. Using the telecan, Lady Aberlin requests an appointment with King Friday.

In Southwood, Keith David and James Michael Jones have made bass violin puppets for the festival while Betty Okonak Templeton is preparing to sing a song about a bass violet. Lady Aberlin further explains her worries about sharing these unique ideas with King Friday. Encouraging her to talk with her uncle, everyone sings Be Brave Be Strong.

At the castle, Lady Aberlin discusses everyone's plans for the festival and gains the full approval of King Friday.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about being honest by singing The Truth Will Make Me Free. After feeding the fish, he receives a call from a friend -- a tuba player who will be visiting the Neighborhood tomorrow.
