Mister Rogers arrives with a bell which makes the F-sharp tone. After ringing the bell, he compares the sound with the same tone on the piano. Paying a visit to the Westminster Bell Choir, Mister Rogers listens as they demonstrate their different types of bells. As a group, they play Peace and Quiet and Won't You Be My Neighbor.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Mayor Maggie plays the F-sharp bell as King Friday plays the same tone on his bass violin. While King Friday plays along, Mayor Maggie sings I Think I'm Going to Like Today. Meanwhile, H.J. Elephant is wearing a hat shaped like a bell.

At the tree, Mayor Maggie finds that the bell outside Henrietta's door is somewhat quiet and gives her the F-sharp bell. Over at the clock, Daniel Striped Tiger and H.J. Elephant are dressed in what appear to be outer space costumes. Mayor Maggie quickly returns to the tree when she hears Henrietta's new bell ringing loudly but the reason for the constant ringing is unclear.

Back at the house, Mr. McFeely stops by with another bell and a videotape about how people make bells. Ringing their bells together, Mister Rogers and Mr. McFeely sing the Speedy Delivery song.
