Episode Recap

Rogers says he will take viewers to an art gallery. He has postcard-sized reproductions of three paintings, a Sargent, a Van Gogh, a Miro. At the art gallery, Bay Judson directs Rogers to various paintings and instructs how one is not to touch the paintings. Rogers is most impressed by a Renoir, Petit Fille en Rose. They find the paintings Rogers has on reproduced form. At Rogers' request, Bay shows one of the museum's bathrooms and its kitchen.
In the NOM, Lady Aberlin is doing her drawing for the contest. Lady Elaine wants to buy the drawing off her, but Lady Aberlin refuses. Mr. McFeely arrives with a letter for X. It's from Big Bird, who says he will visit the NOM tomorrow to bring his drawing. Henrietta's feelings are deeply hurt, thinking X likes Big Bird more than her. Lady Elaine says she has a drawing for the contest, and produces the Van Gogh seen earlier. Told she can't just enter someone else's drawing, Lady Elaine insists she will win all the gold in the world. King Friday, from his reviewing stand, announces the surprise prize has many colors.
