Instead of changing into a sweater, Mister Rogers puts on a teaching robe when he arrives. He explains that different hood designs on such robes are to represent various academic subject areas. After talking about how some students are serious and other act silly, Mister Rogers sings Sometimes People Are Good.

Chef Brockett stops by with a dough cutter shaped like the letter T. He rolls and cuts some dough as he prepares a special treat for Robert Troll and the others in Make-Believe.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett gives everyone a T-shaped cookie. Robert Troll enjoys his treat as he awaits the arrival of Sara Saturday's wise lady who will take him home. Corney introduces himself to Robert Troll and sings I'm a Man Who Manufactures.

When Sara Saturday's wise lady (teacher) arrives to take Robert Troll home, she talks with X the Owl and Henrietta Pussycat about the possibility of King Friday and Sara Saturday getting married. At the castle, the wise lady meets King Friday before moving on to find Robert Troll.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers cleans up the kitchen as he talks about learning and concludes by singing Then Your Heart is Full of Love.
