Mister Rogers arrives with two bags containing roller skates and safety equipment. After showing how the wheels on his skates can move fast and slow, Mister Rogers reflects on a day when he went roller skating with his friend Stephen Lee. Mr. McFeely stops by with a film about how people make roller skates.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the Trolley is still moving very quickly while Lady Aberlin demonstrates her skates for Queen Sara. The two decide that a net could help them slow the Trolley down so Lady Aberlin seeks out the help of Lady Elaine Fairchilde. Lady Elaine provides two Trolley nets while Stephen Owl stops by wearing his safety gear. He and Lady Aberlin take a leisurely skate around the Neighborhood until they hear the Trolley approaching. As the Trolley nears, Lady Aberlin and Stephen Owl use their nets to temporarily slow the Trolley before it speeds away again.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of asking for help when learning something new.
