|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a card that shows a drawing of a fish on one side and the word "Fish" on the other. After showing the card to the fish in his aquarium, he shows another aquarium set up on his kitchen table. This aquarium belongs to Sylvia Earle who will be stopping by later. Mister Rogers remembers a time he and Ms. Earle went snorkeling. Looking at the fish in the new aquarium, Mister Rogers sings Peace and Quiet before Mr. McFeely stops by with a videotape for Ms. Earle.
Stepping outside, Mister Rogers waits quietly for Ms. Earle to arrives. As he waits, he concentrates on his breathing. Upon her arrival, Ms. Earle joins Mister Rogers in the kitchen where they place an underwater microphone in the new aquarium in hopes of hearing the fish. Unfortunately, the fish do not respond and Mister Rogers and Ms. Earle decide to move on to the video delivered by Mr. McFeely. The video features the underwater sounds made by various fish.
In the Neighborhoood of Make-Believe, Mayor Maggie is talking to King Friday about the constant drumming coming from the tree. Lady Aberlin arrives having changed from her outerspace costume into a fish costume. She goes to the tree where she finds Bob Dog, still sworn to secrecy. Although he cannot talk about the secret he is keeping, he is able to shut off the drumming and inform Lady Aberlin of the whereabouts of X and Henrietta.
At the Museum-Go-Round, X and Henrietta are in the S Room (S for "scared" and "safe"). Lady Elaine shares that they are hiding from something they are afraid of -- something from outerspace. As Lady Aberlin passes back by the tree, the drumming starts again. It stops after she mentions that she is only Lady Aberlin in a fish costume.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about things on television that might be scarey to young viewers. He suggests that young viewers can be strong by turning off scarey television.
