Mister Rogers arrives with a bowl made by Eva Kwong. Visiting her studio, Mister Rogers sees how Ms. Kwong makes her pottery.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, everyone is making final preparations for the wedding of James Michael Jones and Betty Okonak Templeton. Lady Aberlin sings You Are Pretty at the tree with Henrietta and X.

In Southwood, the guest begin to arrive and the trumpet fanfare sounds to begin the ceremony. Overseen by King Friday, the couple exchanges vows to become man and wife.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about weddings: "The most important thing about a wedding is the love that people have for one another. The fancy clothes and flowers and presents are all very nice, but it's the people caring for each other that really makes the wedding." He concludes by singing Love is People.


As the episode transitions back to Mister Rogers house, I'm Glad I'm the Way I Am plays in the background.
