Mister Rogers arrives with the parts for a doll house which he puts together on the floor. With the doll house complete, he adds furniture and a family before he sings When a Baby Comes to Your House.

In the kitchen, Mister Rogers has another doll house set up -- the grandparents' house -- which he takes the father and son dolls to visit. Picture Picture shares a film about families.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, King Friday instructs Lady Aberlin to number each home in the Neighborhood. When the castle is marked with the number "1," Lady Aberlin shares with the Trolley that she does not think that numbering the homes is a good idea. She feels that King Friday has requested this simply to allow the castle to be "number one" in the Neighborhood.

Moving throughout the Neighborhood, Lady Aberlin numbers each of the homes before returning to the Eiffel Tower where she realizes that for everything to be in order, the tower should be "number one" instead of the castle.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers cleans up the dolls as he concludes for the day by talking more about families.


The grandparents' house number is 737.

I'm a Man Who Manufactures plays in the background as Lady Aberlin talks with Corney.

Henrietta is cooking sauerkraut when Lady Aberlin arrives to number her home. When she find that her home will be "number 3," Henrietta sings Three Blind Mice.

As Lady Aberlin counts with Daniel Striped Tiger, she sings "6-7-8-9-10" to the tune from One and One are Two.
