In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Joey Hollingsworth is digging a well outside the factory and dances some dirt across the Neighbohrood to Daniel's clock. He explains to Daniel how a water pump works before performing a short water pumping dance.

Returning to the factory, Joey installs the pump and primes it with a cup of water delivered by Daniel. Corney gives a selling hat to Joey as he sets off on his next Rockit-selling assignment.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers cleans up the kitchen as he concludes his visit.
