Mister Rogers arrives with a pair of crutches and a cast and talks about how he used them once when he hurt his ankle. He shows how to walk with crutches and explains that some people use crutches some times while others use them all of the time. Mister Rogers explains that Chef Brockett is currently using crutches after having had surgery on his leg. A phone call from Chef Brockett lets him know that he is on his way over. Mister Rogers sings Peace and Quiet while he waits.

Outside, Chef Brockett has a different kind of crutches -- ones with cuffs on them. While he was in the hospital, Chef Brockett painted a picture of a cupcake which he gives to Mister Rogers.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday continues to insist that everyone wear a "three-cornered one" and provided a hat for Betty Okonak Templeton who finds a loophole in King Friday's command. At the Museum-Go-Round, she and Robert Troll see a gift that was sent to Lady Elaine by Chef Brockett -- a scarf with three corners. Considering King Friday's command is to wear a "three-cornered one," Robert Troll puts the scarf around Lady Elaine's shoulders which technically keeps her in line with the King's command.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers returns to the church from the previous day where he meets with Alan Morrison and two other musicians, Demarre and Anthony McGill. The McGill brothers demonstrate their instruments -- a flute and a clarinet -- before Mr. Morrison returns to the piano wearing a tuxedo. Together they practice for their upcoming performance.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers sings I'm Proud of You before Mr. McFeely stops by with an unglued paper bag and a video about how people make paper bags.
