Episode Recap

Rogers shows pictures of his father and mother from the early 1930s. Then he shows pictures from his wedding. (Joanne's name is not mentioned.) He tells of, when he was a boy, he thought he would marry his mother, and that led to a song performed in Show #1015. Chef Brockett calls Rogers, hinting to a special at the Bakery. Brockett shows the special: arroz con leche, which José Cisneros made. Rogers goes to the kitchen and helps José make arroz con leche, adding vanilla and condensed milk to the cooked rice. Back at the television house, Rogers reminds viewers that moms and dads know best what not to put in one's mouth.
In the NOM, Lady Aberlin and Queen Sara discuss what to sprinkle on the bride and groom at the climax of the wedding: rice or flower petals. Lady Aberlin discourages wasting food. They both agree the flower petals are pretty to sprinkle. Lady Aberlin tells Queen Sara of Daniel's trouble as the ring bearer. At the Museum, Lady Elaine greets first Lady Aberlin and then Betty Okonak Templeton. The last of them invites Lady Aberlin to go to Daniel's Clock. Daniel is convinced he can't keep the ring on the pillow. He shows his trouble to Betty. She recommends putting stickytape on the ring to secure it to the pillow's surface. Daniel then says he does not want to dress up as a bear. Lady Aberlin explains the meaning of "ring bearer." King Friday practices his wedding speech at the Castle when Lady Aberlin arrives.
Back at the television house, Rogers relates the meaning of "bearer" and says it's important to talk to someone about something that bothers you.
