Episode Recap

Rogers brings sculpting dough with which he makes what he sees as a Trolley. He wastes little time bringing the real one. In the NOM, Lady Aberlin observes the sand sculpture that Chuck Aber and HulaMouse had created. She starts to dance around it when Lady Elaine Fairchilde insists, "It doesn't look like anything." But the sculpture inspires King Friday XIII to recite the royal version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Lady Elaine scolds Friday for the poem and everyone else, insisting she is the judge of the upcoming arts festival. At King Friday's suggestion, Lady Aberlin visits the Clock for the last time. She finds Daniel in a sad mood because Lady Elaine had scolded him for his art contribution: a mobile inspired from that sand sculpture. Lady Aberlin is overjoyed. She asks Daniel why he thinks Lady Elaine hurts people's feelings. His response: maybe one day, people hurt her feelings. Rogers shows a piece of pottery Dolly Naranjo had made for him (location video elapsing 12 minutes). They collected clay in an isolated area before mixing clay, water and volcanic ash at her house. Dolly mixes the clay with her foot. In her studio, they roll the clay into coils from which to make the clay pot. The finished pot is put into an open-air kiln for firing. After firing, Dolly carves a design on the clay pot. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, It's You I Like ("artwork" substitutes for "toys"), Good Feeling.
