Mister Rogers arrives with a small container of fish food which he takes to the kitchen where Mr. McFeely has set up an aquarium. After feeding the fish, Mister Rogers looks closely at the tropical fish and sings Everybody's Fancy. Mr. McFeely stops by with two small catfish to add to the aquarium and tells Mister Rogers how to care for his new fish.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin and Daniel Striped Tiger talk about Lady Elaine's refusal to remove the tents from the castle garden. Together they sing Sometimes People Are Good.

At the tree, X the Owl is "airing" -- trying to catch air using a hook strung from a pole. Lady Aberlin is inspired to go "tenting" and borrows X's pole to use in removing the tents from the castle garden. As Lady Aberlin tries to hook a tent, Lady Elaine Fairchilde stops her and shares that she loves the mischief she is making in the Neighborhood.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely returns with a new plant for the aquarium and joins Mister Rogers in singing Tomorrow.


Mr. McFeely tells Mister Rogers that he like to relax by reading a book and looking at his own aquarium.
