Mister Rogers arrives with a thumb piano he has borrowed from his friend and storyteller, Ann Pellowski who he will be visiting later. In the meantime, he sings Children Can.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Reardon has left and King Friday XIII makes a new rule that no one may leave Make-Believe without his permission. Lady Aberlin is denied permission to visit Harriett Elizabeth Cow in Someplace Else. Lady Elaine Fairchilde shows no regard for the new rule and flies away on her leaf mat.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about relatives who come to visit and the feelings associated with their leaving.

At the "story telling place," Mister Rogers listens to his friend, Ann Pellowski, share two stories with a group of children -- The Lion in the Path and a Turkish story about man and his old clothes.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing Everybody's Fancy.
