      • Mr. Rogers: People who make toys want children to use them in safe ways--just like your parents want you to play safely too, because they care about you. They don't want you to get hurt. That's why they sometimes say things like, "Don't climb so high on that ladder!" or, "Don't touch that broken glass!" That's what caring parents do. But a caring parent would never say, "You may not play at all, not ever!" No, because there are lots of safe ways to play.

      • Queen Sarah: Oh, poor Bob Dog. I'm so sorry you're hurt.
        (Bob Dog howls.)
        Queen Sarah: Well, of course. But we'll take good care of you.
        King Friday: And I'm going to see that there will be no further accidents. I now make a new rule: there will be no more play in this Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
        Mr. McFeely and Handyman Negri: No more play?!
        Handyman Negri: King Friday, I mean--
        King Friday: Uh, no more play. Nobody may play anything anymore.
        Queen Sara: Oh, but Friday, that would be just impossible.
        King Friday: I will not have anymore foolishness, causing accidents. Is that understood?
        Mr. McFeely and Handyman Negri: Yes, King Friday.
        King Friday: And is it understood that there will be no more play in this neighborhood?
        Mr. McFeely and Handyman Negri: Yes, sire.
        Queen Sara: Friday, we'll talk more about that anon.
        Handyman Negri: In the meantime, I think we should get over to the hospital.
        King Friday: Uh, you may exit, but remember the rule.
        Handyman Negri: Eh, yes. Yes, sire.
        Queen Sara: Well, of course you're sorry, dear. We'll work everything out.
        King Friday: You won't change my mind.
        Mr. McFeely: Well, here we go to the dog hospital. (he and Handyman Negri leave with Bob Dog.)
        King Friday: And remember, no more play!
        Handyman Negri: Yes. Yes, King Friday.
        (Trolley comes by.)
        Queen Sara: Why, Friday, that's just impossible that--
        King Friday: Uh, not so playful with your running, Trolley!
        (Trolley dings once and whistles three times.)
        King Friday: No more play in this neighborhood!
