In viewing his cut-out of a fish from the wrong side, Mister Rogers taped the fish upside-down to a stick (one can tell from the eye).
Mister Rogers: People can like pets, and pets can like people.
Elsie Jean: (Referring to Anna) I think she'd like a live pet, sire.
Lady Aberlin: Yes.
King Friday: Well, live pets are entirely different kinds of creatures.
Elsie Jean: Yes, sire.
King Friday: One can't usually keep a live pet in a drawer.
Elsie Jean: No, but live pets are more cuddly at times than one on a wooden stick.
King Friday: I suppose they are.
This was the last time Rogers sang I'm Angry, which had been a semi-staple of pre-79 shows. Lyrics were as follows:
And I can tell you why
The reason I am angry
Is that somebody made me feel very small
And all of a sudden
I almost lied
And said I wasn't scared
But I was scared
Mister Rogers: (sings) Sally Margaret McFarland…
Rogers introduced new words sung to the tune of "Troglodytes aedon." He named the paper fish on a stick after Margaret McFarland, who had been a consultant on Mister Rogers' Neighborhood for two decades.
