Mister Rogers arrives with a high silk hat and explains that it is sometimes called a collapsable hat. After singing Let's Be Together Today, he goes to Negri's Music Shop where Betty Aberlin is performing some magic tricks. Borrowing the hat from Mister Rogers, Betty uses it as part of her first trick.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is up to her usual antics as she empties Mr. Anybody's suitcase. After some investigation, he finds that Lady Elaine is responsible and learns that she took the items from the suitcase because she was included in the play. Mr. Anybody explains that to be in the play, all she had to do was ask.

Back at Negri's Music Shop, Betty performs another trick before Mister Rogers returns to his house. At the house, he explains that Lady Elaine did not get her way by meddling or wishing and shows that thing do not happen based on wishes. He concludes by singing Wishes Don't Make Things Come True.


As the scene transitions to Mr. Negri's Music Shop, Let's Be Together Today plays in the background.
