Mister Rogers has come from Mr. Zandhuis' glass shop. He arrives with a case containing some glass artwork including an owl, a penguin, and a swan. Mister Rogers explains that these may look like toys but that such decorations are just for looking.

After Mister Rogers sings Sometimes People Are Good, Mr. Zandhuis stops by and demonstrates the glass blowing process by creating another swan.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Henrietta Pussycat provides Handyman Negri with directions to Someplace Place by singing To Go To Someplace Else. Everyone plans to grant Donkey Hodie's wish by taking turns visiting Someplace Else and providing him with some company. King Friday is not convinced to go until it is suggested that he give a speech and travel in the royal carrying chair.

At Someplace Else, Donkey Hodie is anxiously looking out his window frame when his visitors begin to arrive. Following King Friday's speech, everyone plays a simple game they call "Go In and Out the Window" as they enjoy each other's company.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about making wishes and how you have to make them come true -- they do not just happen. In the kitchen, Mr. Zandhuis has returned to pick up his equipment and leaves a swan on the table. Mister Rogers concludes by singing Once Upon Each Lovely Day.


King Friday's speech: "If it were not for me, you would not have seen a king this day. I am making this day special for all of you. End of speech."

As everyone gathers at Someplace Else, the boom microphone is visible for a few seconds at the top of the screen.
