Mister Rogers has just stopped by the Neighborhood Leather Shop where he invited a friend to come by and demonstrate how to carve leather. When Mrs. Frank arrives, she shows a leather belt before demonstrating her carving talents.

Betty Aberlin stops by on her way to the hairdresser and shows a leather wallet she got from Mrs. Frank. Mister Rogers pretends that he is with Betty at the beauty shop, watching as she has her hair cut and styled.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is wearing an eye patch after getting dirt in his eye. He shows King Friday that his eye is still underneath the patch before King Friday tries on the patch himself. Handyman Negri applies some tonic to King Friday's hair and offers him a warm soap facial massage. Queen Sara does not recognize her husband with the lather on his face.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how things do not go away when they are covered up. He concludes for the day by singing I Like to Be Told.


During the film, various melodies play in the background including You Have to Learn Your Trade, Everybody's Fancy, and It's Such a Good Feeling.
