Mr. Rogers has two boxes, one empty and one filled with buckeyes. He shows how the smooth buckeye is under the prickly cover. After exploring the difference between "empty" and "full," Rogers offers Mr. McFeely one buckeye for each of his pockets.
In the NOM, Officer Clemmons is helping to move the Platypus belongings into the Tree. He and Elsie Jean are having trouble finding enough space for everything. Nurse Miller takes Dr. Bill's medical equipment to the pond. Officer Clemmons teaches her the welcoming song he sang for Elsie Jean. They sing it for Dr. Bill.
