Mister Rogers arrives with pictures taken from last week's opera which he shares with viewers.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Lady Elaine Fairchilde are talking with Reardon about their favorite parts of the opera. Reardon, preparing to leave Make-Believe, is appointed by King Friday XIII to the position of Royal Chamberlin of Operatic Systems and Instruction. Reardon questions whether or not he wants to accept the position and stay in Make-Believe.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how people sometimes have to leave, but are then happy to come back. He sings Many Ways to Say I Love You.

At Negri's Music Shop, Joe Negri introduces Mister Rogers to two ballet dancers -- Jordeen Ivanov and Thierry Dorado. After demonstrating some of their warm-up exercises, the dancers rehearse their performance.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of practice and also the feelings associated with coming and going.
