Mister Rogers arrives with a copy of a yearbook from his days at Rollins College. After pointing out a picture of a young Mister Rogers in the book, he also shares a picture of his friend Fred McFalls. Mr. McFalls is now a doctor and a sculptor. Mister Rogers shares a film about the last time he saw Dr. McFalls who was making a scuplture of Mister Rogers. After the film, Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen where he makes modeling dough out of salt, flour, and water.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Chef Brockett has baked some broccoli buns as a belated birthday gift for King Friday. Lady Elaine sings the song she has written for King Friday's birthday and shares a statue she has made of herself.

Meanwhile at the clock, Daniel shares his feelings with Lady Aberlin. Learning that King Friday is expecting a visit from his college friend (who happens to be a lizard), Daniel expresses his fear of lizards. Even though Lady Elaine has never met King Friday's friend, she perpetuates Daniel's fear by talking about how lizards are unfriendly.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers is visited by his friend Dr. McFalls who brings the completed scupture of Mister Rogers.
