Episode Recap

Rogers has a violin case. Inside is a ukulele with a broken string. Joe Negri arrives to fix the string. Rogers provides the pegs and holds the ukulele in place while Negri readjusts the broken string and tunes it. Once fixed, Negri plays I Think I'm Going To Like Today on the ukulele, with Rogers accompanying him on piano. In the NOM, Handyman Negri has repaired the mechanical toy almost to its original state. Lady Aberlin tells King Friday XIII that everyone's feelings remain hurt from his fit of pique. King Friday makes a new rule trying to order people's feelings to change. Before leaving, Friday says, "I'm sorry." That eases Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri. At the Clock, Lady Aberlin gives Daniel a piece of round wood. With that wood, Daniel paints the face of his Clock (numbers only, of course) on one side and the pendulum of his Clock on the other side. Lady Elaine Fairchilde has heard of King Friday's apology. She takes Daniel's contribution to the R Room of the Museum-Go-Round. Lady Aberlin and Handyman Negri leave by singing a song in round. Back at the television house, Marilyn Barnett invites Rogers to a few "round" exercises. Immediately after Barnett leaves, Mr. McFeely shows a videotape of people making bread at a big bakery. Songs: Won't You Be My Neighbor?, I Think I'm Going To Like Today, There Will Be Lots Of Round Surprises, Speedy Delivery To You (second version), Tree, Tree, Tree, Good Feeling.
