    • Mr. Rogers: After you've heard somebody play beautiful music, sometimes you just like to have a quiet time to remember it.

    • Mr. Rogers: (referring to Yo-Yo Ma) He touches something. He and his music touch something that's so deep inside of us.
      Joe Negri: Yeah, music can do that. I know.

    • King Friday: Niece Aberlin, bass violin player, I presume?
      Lady Aberlin: Almost correct as usual, Uncle Friday.
      King Friday: What do you mean by almost correct, Lady Aberlin?
      Lady Aberlin: Well, I am Lady Aberlin, that's correct. But I'm not a bass violin player.

    • Mr. Rogers: Some people play an instrument, and other people don't. It's so important to find out what we feel good about doing, and then practice that.

    • Lady Aberlin: (To Lady Elaine) That's your accordion you're playing.
      Lady Elaine: I know. But I figured if it looked like a bass violin, then it would be enough for a festival.
      Mr. Aber: You're a very clever person, Lady Elaine.
      Lady Elaine: I know it, and now you know it.
