Mister Rogers arrives with an apple which he says was given to him by Betty Aberlin on his way in. Putting the apple in the refirgerator, Mister Rogers is reminded of his shopping list and invites viewers along as he visits the Neighborhood grocery store.
As Mister Rogers is arriving at the grocery store, he is greeted by Chef Brockett who is riding by on a bicycle. Inside the store, Mister Rogers buys his groceries and is treated to a tour of the stock room by Wayne and Joel Wagner.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers puts the food away and talks about how children may not always get what they want at the store. Before Make-Believe, he finds a top hat sitting near the trolley track.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the water supply is turned off until the necessary repairs can be made to the broken pipe. Ellen Paterson and Beaver O'Day arrive, this time representing Paterson's Pipes. They inform King Friday that the repair to the pipeline will cost 3000. While begging the sky for rain, Lady Elaine comes up with a few medicore ideas for funding the repair such as selling the castle. The best idea for paying for the repair comes from the children at the school who are dressed as famous people from history. They suggest that the money that was to be used for the pool be used to fix the broken pipe. At the castle, King Friday is disappointed that there will be no pool but agrees with the children's proposal.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about making good choices: "We must learn to choose the things that we really need." In the kitchen, he plays with some straws and paper before singing Many Ways to Say I Love You.
