Episode Recap

Rogers brings a box with some heavy costuming: a gray wig and 17th-Century glasses. As Rogers talks about changing styles, Chef Brockett calls, saying he will visit. Rogers returns to his heavy costuming: a big black wig and dark sunglasses. He talks about how he had once couldn't recognize his mother after she had her hair done differently. Chef Brockett arrives, fooled by Rogers' heavy costuming, and gives Rogers a chef's hat. He sings I'm A Chef for the last time.
In the NOM, Handyman Negri can't find the King's spare crown. King Friday arrives with a new cape and robe. He says he will wear his spare crown for the school play. Lady Aberlin tries to hide the truth, claiming she and Handyman Negri have been playing hide-and-seek. King Friday joins in one round of the game. Chef Brockett arrives at the deserted Castle. He has a crown cake for the King. Only from Chef Brockett does King Friday learn about the lost spare crown. Handyman Negri tells the truth. Lady Aberlin says she has asked Prince Tuesday about the crown. King Friday insists that they all become crown seekers. Lady Aberlin says she will keep up her search at the school. Prince Tuesday is reluctant to appear in the school play. Lady Aberlin asks him again about it. If he knew, he says, he would wear it for the play. She tells Prince Tuesday they can make a play crown out of a paper cup. Still, no one, not even Edgar Cooke, can find the spare crown. Chef Brockett tries to convince the King to wear a chef's hat. He gets Handyman Negri to wear his chef's hat, and Edgar shares his hat with King Friday. It doesn't satisfy the King completely.
Back at the television house, Mr. McFeely arrives from the library with a videotape on making sneakers. He says the video on making sweaters will come another day. Before he leaves, Mr. McFeely tries on the chef's hat.
