Mister Rogers arrives wearing his new pullover shirt given to him by Elsie Neal. With him he has brought several three-dimensional party decoration. In the kitchen, he uses paper cups and tape to make his own decoration.

Returning the party decoration to Brockett's Bakery, Mister Rogers finds Chef Brockett making a wedding cake and another shaped like a baseball and bat. Moving out to the soda shop, Chef Brockett makes a blended drink with wheat germ, strawberries, bananas, and milk.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, a very happy Lady Elaine Fairchilde is making fresh orange juice for Corney who she still believes "likes her best" after overhearing his conversation with Lady Aberlin yesterday. Handyman Negri helps her deliver it to the factory where Corney is having a sale on baseball bats. In thanks for the juice, Corney gives Lady Elaine a baseball bat. Moving on to the Platypus mound, Lady Elaine shares with Elsie Jean that she assumes the gift is an "engagment bat" and she is now engaged to Corney.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Children Can.


Everybody's Fancy plays in the background as the episode transitions from Brockett's Bakery to the house.

The "Gone Shopping" sign left outside the Museum-Go-Round as Lady Elaine plans for her wedding was part of the collection shared with the Neighborhood Archive by former Assistant Art Director David Smith.
