Mister Rogers arrives with a trophy he received in 1941 for winning a four-mile swimming marathon. As he talks about swimming at tries on a swimming cap, he receives a call from Audrey Roth who will be stopping by with her granddaughter. While he waits on the porch for Audrey, Mister Rogers sings I'm Taking Care of You.

Audrey arrives with her granddaughter, Maggie. Having been at Elsie Neal's craft shop, Audrey's daughter (Maggie's mother), Holly, arrives at the house with a variety of crafts she and Maggie have made.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII and Handyman Negri are discussing ways to make the castle's waterfall easier to turn on and off. Corney feels that an electrical switch would be too dangerous near open water but suggests that a magic switch might be appropriate. As luck would have it, Miss Paulficate has just made a magic needlepoint on/off switch. Showing the "ON" side of her work and saying a word makes that object appear. She demonstrates by taking a hat on and off using the magic switch. She also adds flowers to the outside of the castle walls. The soon find that the magic switch works perfectly with the waterfall and are invited to the castle's C Room where King Friday will "confer congratulations" on them.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers uses a piece of construction paper to make a "magic switch" of his own. He shows that the sign does not make the water turn on and off in the kitchen sink nor does it ooperate the Trolley.

Francois Clemmons calls and invites Mister Rogers to visit his studio where musician Agnes Van Huey demonstrates a sitar. Mr. Clemmons sings The People You Like the Most.


I'm a Man Who Manufactures plays in the background as Handyman Negri approaches Corney's factory.
