Mister Rogers arrives with two glass tumblers -- one larger and one small -- which he has borrowed from a teacher friend. After filling the large tumbler with cold water, he adds a small amount of hot water mixed with food coloring. As the colored water rises to the top, Mister Rogers explains that heat rises.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde shares with Mrs. McFeely that she wants to "shake up old Friday" by turning the Neighborhood purple. Much to the surprise of King Friday and Mrs. McFeely, Lady Elaine uses her boomerang to carry out her plan. When Handyman Negri reports that others throughout the Neighborhood do not like the change, Lady Elaine returns everything to its original colors.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Brockett's Bakery where Chef Brockett makes a fried egg and French toast. Mister Rogers and Mrs. Schenk use a bread slicer to cut a loaf of raisin bread used for the French Toast.

Borrowing two eggs from Chef Brockett, Mister Rogers returns to his house where he shows that an uncooked egg will not spin -- but a hard boiled egg will.
