Mister Rogers arrives with the parts to assemble a small water fountain. As he takes the parts to the work bench in the back yard, he answers a phone call to a wrong number and then sings I'm Interested in Things. In the back yard, Mister Rogers attempts to assemble the fountain but quickly discovers that he is missing a washer.

Visiting Bob Trow's workshop in search of a washer, Mister Rogers finds Audrey Roth who is cleaning the workshop. Audrey introduces herself and describes her business -- Audrey Cleans Everything (A.C.E.). As she cleans, Mister Rogers looks around and finds the part he needs for his fountain. He leaves a note for Mr. Trow asking for the part he needs.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Miss Paulificate and Donkey Hodie are at Someplace Else looking at the pipes that supply water to the castle waterfall. Miss Paulificate has the day off and joins Donkey Hodie on a visit to the castle. As they leave, Lady Elaine arrives in Someplace Else and is seemingly up to no good.

At the castle, Miss Paulificate and Donkey Hodie find King Friday admiring his new waterfall when suddenly the water stops flowing. Back at Someplace Else, Handyman Negri and Donkey Hodie soon discover that Lady Elaine has disassembled a portion of the windmill which supplies power and water to the royal waterfall. After a quick fix by Handyman Negri, the water at the castle begins flowing once again.

Back at the house, Bob Trow arrives after having found Mister Rogers' note. He mentions that he is thankful that Mister Rogers did not take the part because it was one that he needed -- but for now, for the use of his fountain, the washer can be used by Mister Rogers. Together, he and Mr. Trow finish assembling the fountain.


The plastic water fountain seen in this episode is also seen in Episode 1215.
