    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Mr. Rogers: You can make up your own stories about the Neighborhood of Make-Believe or your own neighborhood. It's fun to use your imagination, isn't it? That's play, too--some of the best kind.

      • Mr. Rogers: It's not just children that play. Older people play--sometimes play alone, and sometimes play together.

      • Mr. Rogers: When you've lost something or someone, or when you're missing someone, like Ana was missing Lady Elaine, you feel sad and you need to play.

      • King Friday: What do you have to say for yourself, son?
        Prince Tuesday: Well, what I have to say is for all of us, Daddy.
        King Friday: Yes?
        Prince Tuesday: Most of your rules are very good. We know that you make them to help us.
        King Friday: Yes?
        Prince Tuesday: But...but this rule about not allowing anybody to play is not a good rule.
        King Friday: Why--
        Prince Tuesday: We all need to play. We all miss Auntie Elaine and her museum-go-round.
        Ana: We just had to play about that.
        Prince Tuesday: So, we're going to find some way to do it, no matter what.
        King Friday: Why, Prince Tuesday, how dare you?!
        Prince Tuesday: I dare because I know that we are right. People need to play, Daddy. People really do.

      • King Friday: (Watching Bob Dog dancing around) Dancing is play, Bob Dog, and there is no play allowed in this neighborhood.
        Lady Aberlin: But, Uncle Friday, I thought that as soon as Bob Dog got better, the neighbors would be able to play again.
        King Friday: Uh, we do not want any further accidents.
        Bob Dog: But...but...but, King Friday, I'm lots and lots and lots better.
        King Friday: It matters not. The rule remains, "No Play Allowed." Hmm!
        Bob Dog: Oh.
        King Friday: I must make a tour of the neighborhood to make sure that there is no playing. Farewell to you both.
        Lady Aberlin and Bob Dog: (Disappointedly) Farewell.
        Lady Aberlin: Oh, Bob Dog, what are we going to do?
        Bob Dog: Hmm.
        Lady Aberlin: A neighborhood can't live long without play.
        Bob Dog: I know, and I'm very sorry.
