In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday is planning a banquet for Professor Scanlon who he now considers to be his "close and personal friend." As Lady Aberlin spreads the word, she finds that the invitation is too late for most including Professor Scanlon who is preparing to leave for his next teaching assignment. Everyone is sad to see Professor Scanlon leave, but they are grateful for the many things he taught them.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers visits Bob Trow's workshop where Tim Scanlon is enlarging photographs.
