Bob Trow invites Rogers outside to see yo-yo expert/teacher Tom Parks, who shows off a few yo-yo tricks. Mr. McFeely arrives with the videotape of people working at night.

In the NOM, Lady Aberlin is still trying to make sense of the star visitor. Bob Dog drops by unexpectedly. Lady Aberlin tells him she thinks the star visitor is sad. Bob Dog offers to show him everything in the NOM. The music of J.S. Bach takes over as Lady Aberlin goes in search of advice. It seems Lady Aberlin doesn't know the star visitor's name.
King Friday tells the star visitor the big-words version of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Lady Aberlin compliments Bob Dog for the wisdom he has shared before she goes to the Clock (to the same J.S. Bach score). At the Clock, Lady Aberlin asks for Daniel's advice. The star visitor drops by with a special rocking chair of Corny's. Daniel speaks kindly with the star visitor. He understands the star visitor is sad about leaving the NOM at daybreak. Daniel tells him he can always think of the people he met after he leaves. Daniel then learns the star visitor's name: Yo-Yo La Belle. The transport chair lands at the Clock, ready to return Yo-Yo La Belle to the stars. Daniel and Lady Aberlin have a few words about caring for others. At the last moment, daytime begins in the NOM.
