Mister Rogers has just visited the Neighborhood drug store. Chef Brockett was there and mentioned that he is interested in taking some pictures. Luckily, Mister Rogers has an instant camera which he has with him when he arrives at the television house. Mister Rogers explains that the camera takes ten seconds to produce a photograph and then sings One and One are Two.

After Picture Picture shows the numbers used in One and One are Two, Chef Brockett stops by to borrow the camera. He and Mister Rogers use the camera to take pictures of each other. As they wait for the pictures to develop, they count to ten. Chef Brockett joins Mister Rogers in the kitchen for a glass of milk.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is making preparations for the opera. While X the Owl is confident that he will play the part of Benjamin Franklin, Reardon is less enthusiastic as he has no ideas for an opera about camping and still is not convinced that King Friday will approve of the performance. Lady Elaine, however, is excited about the opera and explains the plot to Reardon.

Back with Mister Rogers, Chef Brockett agrees to play the part of a singing covered wagon in the opera.

Returning to Make-Believe, Reardon is searching the Neighborhood for a covered wagon and is thrilled when Chef Brockett arrives with the idea that he will play the part.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers packs up his camera as he talks about making up an opera.


In the photo taken of Chef Brockett, a studio light over the kitchen sink can be seen in the background.
