Episode Recap

Rogers shows pictures of Chrissie Thompson – two from her pre-79 appearances, and the last from Chrissie's high-school graduation. Rogers waits outside for Mr. McFeely to bring Chrissie for a visit. At the porch, Rogers recalls the time as a child when he had neglected to tell his mother that he was outside. A 12-year-old friend, Jermaine Vaughan, drops by to show a few break-dancing moves on cardboard (the upbeat music is, by all sounds of things, performed live). As soon as Jermaine leaves, Mr. McFeely and Chrissie Thompson visit. While Mr. McFeely does his delivery, Rogers talks with Chrissie about what she has achieved, despite her limitations. Rogers gives her a butterfly pendant, which he says is a symbol of freedom.
In the NOM, Elsie Jean expresses to Lady Aberlin her concern for Ana. Ana is upset because she has not been chosen to do something for the wedding. At the most, the Platypuses are invited to the wedding. Lady Aberlin tells Ana how significant it is for the invitees to be there, but Ana leaves in tears. Daniel tells Lady Aberlin that he can't be the ring bearer, because he can't carry the ring on the pillow. In Southwood, James Michael Jones complements Betty Okonak Templeton with a poem. They, along with best man Keith David, are building the wedding platform. Lady Aberlin asks Betty Okonak for her advice on Daniel.
