Mister Rogers arrives with a photo album filled with pictures of twins. He explains that twins have the same parents and same birthday but each person is still an individual. The final picture shows twin girls who will be stopping by with Marilyn Barnett.

Mr. McFeely arrives with a pair of wooden shoes and a video about how people make such shoes. Mister Rogers tries on the shoes and wears them until he leaves for the day.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Robert Troll is about to give the cake drawing to Corney when he is stopped by King Friday who would like to talk about Prince Tuesday. The King is concerned with the fact that Prince Tuesday is not happy with himself and the royal robes that he wears as prince.

At the factory, Neighbor Aber is wearing wooden shoes and approaches Robert Troll who shares that Prince Tuesday might be in need of some "Neighbor Aber time." Together they sing Then Your Heart is Full of Love. Queen Sara arrives at the factory looking for the cake drawing and Robert Troll realizes that he was about to spoil the birthday surprise. When Corney appears, Queen Sara distracts him by pointing out Neighbor Aber's wooden shoes.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers sings Then Your Heart is Full of Love before Marilyn Barnett stops by with her students, Meghan and Kelly. Mister Rogers, still in wooden shoes, joins them outside for some exercise.

Back inside, Mister Rogers concludes by reading Friends in the Park.


In the picture album, the Fillnow twins are wearing shirts that read "Marilyn Barnett is My Teacher."
