Episode Recap

Rogers wants to imagine someone in a small chair. He sits beside the chair and reads It Looked Like Spilled Milk. He then produces a book of blank pages. The viewer is to imagine what is on each page as Rogers turns them. (Rogers says someone would imagine a backhoe on one page.) Mr. McFeely calls him outside for a good something: a homemade hat that a friend made. Both try on the hat. Then Marilyn Barnett drops by, also wearing the hat. Then the reality: Barnett leads some sitting-down exercises for Rogers and McFeely. Before leaving, Mr. McFeely hints of a surprise at Brockett's Bakery. In the NOM, Prince Tuesday tells his rag doll that he is never lonely with him around. Only now, in Tome's last appearance, do we hear the rule: two people have to believe in Tome the Rag Doll for him to be real. Handyman Negri helps Prince Tuesday believe Tome is real, and he does. After Tome dances, Corny calls Handyman Negri to the factory. He has made a new Umbrella Rockit for Malcolm Apricot Dinko, Daniel's imaginary friend. Naturally, Corny has made an imaginary chair for Malcolm, and an overstuffed chair at that. X the Owl tells Handyman Negri of his imaginary viewer. At the Clock, Daniel calls Malcolm out for Handyman Negri to present the imaginary chair. Handyman Negri goes to the Castle and begins to recall his day to King Friday. Back at the television house, Rogers tells the viewer about making the most of what you have. He goes to Brockett's Bakery. Sergio Pinto tells Rogers the surprise has been postponed. Rogers goes to the kitchen, where Chef Brockett makes "face" sandwiches. The base of these sandwiches is peanut butter spread on a slice of bread. Brockett gives Rogers a bag of ingredients for him to make face sandwiches at the television house. Rogers washes his hands before he sees the ingredients: a banana, two bread slices, shredded coconut, raisins, and a jar of peanut butter. Every ingredient is used for Rogers' sandwich.
