Mister Rogers arrives with the sign from outside the Brown's marionette shop and has plans to make a similar sign for Francois Clemmons' singing studio. In the kitchen, he puts the finishing touches on the new sign which includes picutres of a mouth, a musical note, and a person's silouhette. Mister Rogers spends a few moments talking about the parts of a mouth before watching a short film about different types of mouths.

Back in the kitchen, Mister Rogers touches on the topic of lip-reading as he finishes the sign for Francois Clemmons. Mrs. McFeely stops by for a brief visit to show Mister Rogers the canary she is watching for a friend.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is anxiously awaiting Lady Elaine's return from space. Lady Elaine communicates via radio that she has made "the most amazing find in all the Neighborhood of Make-Believe history." After some speculation, Henrietta Pussycat wonders aloud if Lady Elaine might have found a husband. The rumor quickly spreads to the castle where King Friday and Queen Sara recall their own wedding. Lady Aberlin makes her best attempt to quiet the rumor but is outspoken by everyone's excitement.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about rumors and how everybody likes to make things up once in a while. After singing Wishes Don't Make Things Come True, the day is concluded as Mister Rogers surprises Francois Clemmons with the new sign.
