Mister Rogers arrives with a sea captain's desk. In the kitchen, he opens the desk and shows its many compartments. After talking about special things and special places to keep those thing, he sings A Place of My Own.

At the Audrey Cleans Everything home office, Audrey is out on business and Barbara Russell needs to step away for a short time. Mister Rogers manages the office while they are gone. When Audrey returns, she asks Mister Rogers to come back tomorrow to see how she transforms the office in her mobile home into a living room.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers talks about how some people like to hurry and others like to take their time. He sings I Like To Take My Time.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII finishes dictating a letter to Miss Paulificate before Lady Aberlin arrives at the castle and talks to him about the responsibilities of being a king. He tells Lady Aberlin that he is "very pleased with [her] as a niece and as a person." Moving on, Lady Aberlin helps Lady Elaine Fairchilde open a box with secret compartments.

Purple Panda and Black and White Panda are visiting Make-Believe. Black and White Panda has chosen to communicate with others by writing messages on paper. At the castle, the pandas perform some circus tricks for the royal family before going inside to the R Room for refreshments.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with a old-fashioned folding desk with several compartments of its own. He also shares a small wooden bank which requires special movements to open.


A Place of My Own plays in the background as the episode transitions to Audrey's office.

Barbara Russell takes a phone call from "John" -- assumed to be John Fahey who has appeared a few times as an employee of Audrey Cleans Everything.

Thinking about being a king, King Friday recites the following lines:

Being a king is certainly a thing that makes a person ponder,
But whether or not you have a thought it's easier to be fonder,
Of any other station in life
