Episode Recap

Rogers recalls how, as a boy, he wanted eyeglasses, but he did not need them just yet. He displays a special pair of glasses with telescopes for people with acute farsightedness. Rogers then shows pictures of fish: blue tang, triggerfish, copper-banded butterfly fish, a pearl gourami (like the kind in Rogers' fish tank) and an angelfish. He goes out to the porch to await a friend, who advises him how to take care of fish. She gives Rogers java moss. In addition, she points out the nocturnal catfish and tells Rogers how to maintain the tank. It's nighttime in the NOM, and Lady Aberlin tells Daniel Striped Tiger of the good care Chuck Aber has taken of Prince Tuesday. Daniel says he has wondered about the natural world. X the Owl tells Lady Aberlin what he has learned about the stars in his OCS course. At the Castle, Chuck Aber and Lady Aberlin wake up Prince Tuesday from a bad dream. He says he dreamed of a fish that couldn't find his mother. Aber wants Prince Tuesday to think of what Queen Sara and King Friday XIII might be doing. After Lady Aberlin leaves, Prince Tuesday and Chuck Aber look through Tuesday's telescope. Back at the television house, Rogers talks of how he used to draw pictures of his dreams. He ensures viewers that people are still there during the night. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, Everybody's Fancy, Who Made The Rainbow And The Sky (in madrigal), Good Feeling.
