Episode Recap

Rogers explains that the meeting in his last television visit, was to arrange for André Watts' visit. Rogers talks of how, when he first learned the piano, he made a lot of mistakes. In the NOM, the Castle is decorated for the poetry reading. King Friday tells Chuck Aber and Lady Aberlin to find Audrey Duck (he gives them Sherlock Holmes hats). Aber does his duck calls at Lady Aberlin's request. X the Owl tells both that Audrey may be hiding with a friend. He asks that they tell Audrey he is making a book of her poem. At the Platypus Mound, Ana has a sign saying Audrey Duck is not hiding inside. Aber tries to draw Audrey out with his duck calls, then asks Ana for the truth. Ana explains Audrey's feelings have been hurt. Finally Audrey emerges, expressing how she is sad for all the incidents she felt she had caused. Aber says of the poem, "Sometimes the little things are the best things." That brightens Audrey's day. She and Chuck Aber see the King as NOM ends. The phone rings in Rogers' television house. Now is the time to visit André Watts at the recital hall. Watts says he plays a Chopin piece to warm up. He also performs specific pieces that fit his moods. André also says that one learns more by making mistakes. Watts' most stirring performance is of In A Dream. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, Good Feeling.
