Mister Rogers arrives with a wooden jigsaw puzzle made by Bob Trow. Taking the puzzle to the kitchen, he assembles the pieces to form a solid block. Mister Rogers talks about Mr. Trow and his new saw that he used to make the puzzle.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mr. Trow talks about being safe while using tools. Once he and Mister Rogers are safely prepared, Mr. Trow demonstrates his new jigsaw as he creates pieces for new puzzles.

Returning to the house, Mister Rogers goes back to the kitchen where he draws a hopscotch board on a piece of construction paper. Using scissors, he cuts the paper into pieces to make a puzzle of his own. As he talks about safety, Mister Rogers sings What Do You Do With the Mad That You Feel.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin sings Perfectly Beautiful Day as she plays hopscotch. She talks with X the Owl about his misunderstanding of King Friday's lifted ban on leaving the Neighborhood. X assumed that with the rule no longer in place, anyone could go anywhere they wanted at any time. Lady Aberlin explains that sometimes it is important for others to know the whereabouts of the people they care about. Before she leaves, Lady Aberlin is joined by X the Owl as she continues singing.

At the castle, King Friday is talking with Corney about traveling safely. Corney is preparing to buy a new saw and King Friday expresses his trust in Corney to use the saw safely.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sits at the piano to play a game. As he plays, viewers are to move with the music. When he stops playing, they are to stop moving.
