|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Fresh off of a walk through the Neighborhood, Mister Rogers arrives with his jacket over his shoulder. Mister Rogers is planning to go see an ambulance and Mr. McFeely calls to say he will stop by to tell him where one is at.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is giving walking lessons to Mimus Polyglottos and Troglodytes Aedon when King Friday asks that she teach them to march -- a more serious form of walking. The royal birds are frightened away when Cousin Stephen Owl looking for an old lost tunnel in the Neighborhood.
At the oak tree, Cousin Stephen and Lady Aberlin find a note on X's door instructing visitors to knock once for X, twice for Cousin Mary, and three times for both of them. They knock three times but X informs them through the door that Cousin Mary is not there. Knocking once instead, X comes out to find his cousin Stephen with a shovel in hand ready to start digging for the lost tunnel. X reminds him that the best way for owls to begin a new project is to sing the OCS song. Hearing the song, Cousin Mary arrives at the tree with King Friday's royal pets in hand.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings a fish version of the OCS song before Mr. McFeely arrives with directions to find the ambulance. Meeting Roy Cox and Wayne Epps, Mister Rogers gets to see the many parts of an ambulance as Mr. Cox and Mr. Epps describe the job of a paramedic. Mister Rogers is fitted with a neck brace and placed on a stretcher and is also gets a demonstration of the ambulance lights and siren.
Returning to his house, Mister Rogers talks about the kindness of the paramedics and how it is important to know what to expect in good times and in scary times. Before leaving with his jacket over his shoulder, Mister Rogers concludes by singing I Like to Be Told.
