Mister Rogers arrives with two lemons which he takes to the kitchen where he compares a sliced lemon to a whole one.

Mr. McFeely arrives with an unexpected delivery from Elsie Neal's Craft Shop -- a gift for Mister Rogers. After opening the package -- a handmade pullover shirt -- Mister Rogers goes to the craft shop to thank Ms. Neal. While he is there, he looks at and cuts pieces of patterned cloth for Elsie to use for other shirts she is making.

Stopping by Negri's Music Shop, Mister Rogers plays Be Brave Be Strong on the marimba while Joe Negri plays an upright bass. He also plays Chopsticks on the xylophone while Mr. Negri plays the ukulele.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is helping X the Owl make a hanging xylophone outside his door. Looking for wood to finish the project, she finds that what Corney has to offer is too large. Lady Elaine Fairchilde -- wearing a new pullover shirt -- hears Lady Aberlin talking with Corney and singing the "we love you best" line from the Owl Correspondence School song and assumes that she is the subject of their conversation. Moving on to the clock, Lady Aberlin finds that Daniel Striped Tiger has the wood pieces she needs for the xylophone.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers plays a recording of children singing, playing, and talking with King Friday XIII. He also shares a recording of his son, Jamie, playing with a puppet when he was younger.


This pullover shirt worn in this episode by Lady Elaine Fairchilde was once auctioned on eBay.
