Mister Rogers arrives with a new fish for the fish tank similar to the one Mr. McFeely brought to him last week. Recognizing that all fish are different, Mister Rogers sings Everybody's Fancy.

Mr. McFeely stops by with an old-fashioned piano roll and invites Mister Rogers to his house where he has had a player piano delivered. Attaching the piano roll, Mr. McFeely is able to demonstrate how the player piano operates. Mrs. McFeely enjoys the music despite being irritated that Mr. McFeely did not tell her that the large piano was being delivered to their house.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers plays his own piano and talks about Mrs. McFeely's feelings.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Cornflake S. Pecially and Joey Hollingsworth are working on filling their worldwide orders. Corney is quite pleased with Mr. Hollingsworth's work as a saleman. Overhearing Corney saying that Mr. Hollingsworth is the "best salesman," Lady Elaine misunderstands and assumes he will be the best man in the wedding. Lady Elaine demonstrates her player piano which inspires Mr. Hollingsworth to dance. At the castle, King Friday XIII shows the robe he will wear to the wedding.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings You Are You.
