Mister Rogers arrives with a bag of taffy and suggests that the two pieces he takes out feel the same but smell very different. He sings a few lines of What Can You Hear.

At Brockett's Bakery, Chef Brockett and Jeff Edwards are making fresh taffy. Mister Rogers watches as they use a taffy-pulling machine

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin finds a tray of taffy left on top of the Trolley by Chef Brockett. She decides that the taffy could be part of the upcoming opera. Reardon invites Chef Brockett and Miss Paulificate to join him in playing swans in the opera. Outside the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Aberlin finds an old key on the ground and decides that it could be used in the opera as the "key to another land." With Lady Elaine, she and Reardon sort out other details of the opera's plot and sing a variety of the songs they will perform.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers does some finger painting in the kitchen.


Let's Be Together Today plays in the background as the episode transitions to the bakery.

Mister Rogers accidently tells Jose (who speaks Spanish) "au revoir" (goodbye in French) before correcting himself to say "adios" (goodbye in Spanish).
