Mister Rogers arrives with a bucket made by his friend, Jim Johnson. Visiting Bob Trow's Workshop, he watches as Mr. Johnson demonstrations how he makes linen thread using antique tools and flax he has grown.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara Saturday is sharing pictures of her friends from Westwood when Dr. Bill Platypus tells her that the Frogg family and H.J. Elephant will be visiting the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. While he is at the castle, he gives Lady Aberlin her "semi-annual mouth and ear and eye check-up." As he examines her, he explains that he cannot see her thoughts. Learning that his friends are coming for a visit, Prince Tuesday believes that his wishes are coming true.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about thoughts and how they are private unless they are shared.
