Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen where he uses building blocks to create steps and a ramp. He shows how it is much easier for wheels to move on the ramp and shares a film about various kinds of ramps.

At Mrs. Baker's apartment building, Mister Rogers watches as a crew from Negri's Music Shop delivers a piano. They uses a ramp to unload the piano from the delivery truck. Mrs. Baker shows Mister Rogers how her apartment is coming together now that her family's belongings are in place.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Queen Sara Saturday and Johnny Costa play Many Ways To Say I Love You together on their pianos. When Lady Elaine Fairchilde asks to join them, they say that they'd rather continue playing on their own. Upset at their rejection, Lady Elaine uses her boomerang to turn them upside down.

At the factory, Handyman Negri and Corney are working together and don't have a job for Lady Elaine. Rejected again, she turns them upside down.

At the tree, Lady Aberlin has been flying a kite and it is stuck in the tree's branches. Lady Elaine is able to help by turning the tree upside down and realizes that she can help people with her boomerang rather than just annoy them. She and Lady Aberlin discuss plans for using the boomerang for an MGR-TV show.


Mrs. Baker suggests that "teachers need teachers, too." She is a teacher but would like to improve her piano playing. Joe Negri offers to speak with Johnny Costa about lessons. Mister Rogers suggests that his wife, who "teaches at the college," may be willing to provide lessons, as well.
