Mister Rogers reads a poem about looking out the window and talks about people going to and coming from different places. Picture Picture shares some pictures of people looking through windows. As Mister Rogers looks through his own window, he sees Chef Brockett and invites him in for a visit.

After Chef Brockett sings I'm a Chef, he and Mister Rogers go to the kitchen where they make a special "window sandwich" out of peanut butter, lettuce, and bread.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin has a package to deliver to Donkey Hodie but does not know how to get to Someplace Else. Henrietta helps out by singing To Go To Someplace Else.

At Someplace Else, Lady Aberlin finds that Donkey Hodie is lonely and wishing for some visitors. The package contains a window that Donkey Hodie had ordered in hopes of looking through it for visitors to Someplace Else. Learning that no one except Donkey Hodie lives at Someplace Else, Lady Aberlin pretends to be a fairy and grants his wish for visitors.

Returning to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin makes plans with X and Henrietta to visit Donkey Hodie the next day.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about how you have to make wishes happen as he cleans up the kitchen.


Mister Rogers poem about looking out the window:

On the other side of the window
There's so much you can see
A girl, a boy
A street, a toy
A leaf and part of a tree
On the other side of the window
Is another place to be

Before Henrietta correctly guesses that a window was in the package for Donkey Hodie, she and X make a few incorrect guesses. Henrietta guesses that the package contains molasses or sauerkraut. X guesses a basketball net or a telescope.
