Episode Recap

Rogers brings a tiny orange seed to his kitchen. He plants the orange seed in a pot. Rogers explains that an orange seed can grow only into an orange tree that would bear oranges. He cuts an orange in half to see some of the seeds. One of the halves he squeezes to make a small quantity of orange juice. Mr. McFeely brings a film (video, really) of how people make orange juice. Rogers gives an orange to Mr. McFeely. He then goes to Brockett's Bakery and gives an orange to counterman José Cisneros. José shows Rogers an orange cake, made with slices of orange and orange juice. Chef Brockett shows Rogers a display of soy foods and tofu (one of Rogers' favorite foods). Brockett gives Rogers a soy pancake-and-waffle mix. Back at the television house, Rogers says waiting is such an important thing to do (a lesson that would be heard again in Growing week). In the NOM, Lady Aberlin gives orange juice to her friends. X the Owl is the last to receive orange juice. He wishes some food would grow on his Tree when an orangeogram suddenly appears. The orangeogram says Cousin Mary Owl will visit the NOM tomorrow. It prompts X to recite a bit of literature about cousins.
