Daniel Tiger and O the Owl are pretending to fix things while Dad Tiger works around the house. As they play, Daniel becomes more and more excited -- so much so that O becomes uncomfortable with the level of noise Daniel is making. Mom Tiger recongnizes O's discomfort and asks Daniel to consider his friend's feelings. Daniel agrees to be quieter as he plays.

Daniel make-believes that his tools are alive and helping him fix things.

When Daniel and O put a special flower in the toy trolley and send it towards the kitchen, it hits Mom Tiger's vase and cracks the handle. They recognize Mom Tiger's disappointment and help her to glue the broken vase.

Thankful that he feelings were considered, Mom Tiger puts two apples in the toy trolley and sends it back to Daniel and O.
