Mister Rogers arrives with a uniform he has borrowed from Betty's Little Theater. Putting on the hat and jacket, he explains that he may look different but he is still the same person underneath. He also suggests that all people are different, even if they wear similar uniforms.

At the Neighborhood Hair Dresser's, Mister Rogers returns the uniform to Betty Aberlin who is there having her hair washed by Irene McDivitt. Ms. McDivitt shows some of the equipment she uses when styling someone's hair including rollers which she applies to Betty's hair.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday XIII emphasizes his rule that no one may leave Make-Believe without his permission. Providing them with uniforms, he appoints Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri as members of his the new Neighborhood police force and instructs them to guard the borders of Make-Believe. Lady Elaine Fairchilde is also placed under house arrest and given a ticket for a moving violation.

Back at the hair dresser's, Mister Rogers watches as Betty Aberlin has the curlers removed from her hair.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers concludes by singing It's You I Like.
