Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of items to be repaired. With glue and a screwdriver, he takes the bag to the kitchen where he fixes a wooden bird figure and a toy doll. As he works, he talks about how things can break when they are used but people are different. After singing Everything Grows Together, he shares a film about children playing with dolls and playing dress-up.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Miss Paulificate is cleaning up around the Neighborhood on her day off. At the clock, she helps Daniel Striped Tiger repair a toy tiger.

A letter for Dr. Bill Platypus falls from the sky and is delivered by Miss Paulificate to the castle where Dr. Bill is looking at the fountain with Ana. The letter informs Dr. Bill that he will receive his first lesson from the pediatrician school tomorrow.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers pours a glass of milk and a glass of orange juice. After comparing the two, he talks about how pediatricians care about children. He concludes by singing Many Ways To Say I Love You.


As Mister Rogers hangs his coat, he drops the coat and hanger but catches them before they hit the floor.

Ornithorhynchus Anatinus plays in the background as Miss Paulificate walks from the clock to the castle.
