Mister Rogers arrives with a collection of photographs of himself and several of his Neighborhood friends. He takes the photos to Bob Trow's workshop where Mr. Trow helps him arrange them into a collage to be framed.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog wants to play with Queen Sara but she is busy tending to the needs of Prince Tuesday. As Lady Aberlin arrives with her new camera, Bob Dog is clearly disappointed.

Lady Aberlin suggests that they take a photo of the royal family but Bob Dog assumes that they will be too busy. When King Friday and Queen Sara agree to have their picture taken with Bob Dog, he intentionally avoids standing near Queen Sara. Bob Dog then takes a turn behind the camera and snaps three separate photos of the King and Queen with Lady Aberlin. When each photo comes out, Queen Sara has been left out of the frame.

Queen Sara recognizes Bob Dog's feelings and suggests that she spend some special time with her old friend. She explains that he is still important to her even though she now has responsibilities as a mother.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about ways to express your feelings as he paints in the kitchen. He sings I Like To Take My Time as he paints before Bob Trow stops by to deliver the completed photo collage.


Several of the photographs shared by Mister Rogers were taken from earlier Neighborhood episodes:
