Mr. Rogers: So friends are friends. We thought alot about friends, haven't we? And we've thought alot about food. Especially food for the body. And that's a very important kind of food, because when a person is very, very hungry, he or she can't think of any other kinds of food. But there are other kinds. Music, for instance, is food for the hearing. And paintings and beauitful scenes are food for the seeing. And books are food for the soul. And loving other people is food for the spirit. Many kinds of foods. You could think of some yourself.

Mr. Rogers: Did you ever hear loud, scary sounds on television? Well some television programs are loud and scary, with people shooting and hitting other people. You know, you can do something about that. When you see scary television, you can TURN IT OFF. And when you do turn it off, that will show that YOU'RE the strongest of them all. It takes a very strong person to be able to turn off scary TV. Mmm-hmm. That's one of the ways you'll be able to tell that you're really growing. You're learning so many important things, and I'm so proud of you.

Mr. Rogers: You know, growing means when you're a baby and you're angry, all you can do is scream and kick. That's all. But when you get a little older, you can say that you're angry. You can stomp around and make up a dance, or pound some clay and make things out of clay, and sing a song or write a poem. That's what it means to grow. I'm proud of the way you're growing and changing.

Mr. Rogers: Maybe you and your family and friends could have your own arts festival. And include whatever you like to do. Such as drawing, or painting, or dancing, or dressing up, or singing, or cooking. There are many ways of saying who you are and how you feel. Ways that can be so helpful. Ways that don't hurt yourself or anybody else. You know, that's how you can tell when you're grown up inside: you're sure that what you're planning and doing are things that can be a real help to you and your neighbor. I'm proud of you, know that. I hope you do.

Mr. Rogers: You know, I was just thinking. Every person, whether little or big, is a human being. And because we are human there are many things that are alike about all of us. For instance, we all need to be loved. Everybody does. Every person that you see in this world needs to be loved. And the marvelous thing about being human is that while we're very much alike, each one of us is very different too. Isn't it great that we can care about one another the way we do?

Mr. Rogers: [singing] What if I were very, very sad / And all I did was smile? I wonder after a while / What might become of my sadness? What if I were very, very angry / And all I did was sit / And never think of it? What might become of my anger? Where would they go / And what would they do / If I couldn't let them out? / Maybe I'd fall / Maybe get sick / Or doubt / But what if I could know the truth / And say just how I feel? I think I'd learn a lot that's real / About freedom / I'm learning to sing a sad song when I'm sad / I'm learning to say I'm angry when I'm very mad / I'm learning to shout / I'm getting it out / I'm happy learning exactly how I feel inside of me / I'm learning to know the truth / I'm learning to tell the truth / Discovering truth will make... me... free.

Mr. Rogers: I was just thinking, I wonder if King Friday and Lady Elaine sometimes just get jealous of each other or something. If they'd just talk about how they feel instead of acting silly, everyone would be alot happier. Well you and I know that WE don't have to act like they do. No, we don't! And that can give us a very good feeling.

Mr. Rogers: One time I met one of those people and he said that they had practiced for ten years to do dances like that. Ten years. Isn't that wonderful? That they care enough to do that? You know, there are times when you feel like dancing, but you're supposed to sit still or at least sit down. I wonder if we couldn't make up a... sitting kind of a dance. Because sometimes you have such a good feeling that you have to move a little bit.

[singing]

Mr. Rogers: It's such a good feeling / To know you're alive / It's such a happy feeling / You're growing inside / And when you wake up ready to say / I think I'll grow 12 inches today / It's such a good feeling / A very good feeling / The feeling you know that you're alive... It's such a good feeling / To know you're in tune / It's such a happy feeling / To find you're in bloom / And when you wake up ready to say / I think I'll grow 12 inches today / It's such a good feeling / A very good feeling / The feeling you know that you're alive.

Mr. Rogers: You know, the toughest thing is to love somebody who has done something mean to you. Especially when that somebody has been yourself. Have you ever done anything mean to yourself? Well it's very important to look inside yourself and find that loving part of you. That's the part that you must take good care of and NEVER be mean to. Because that's the part of you that allows you to love your neighbor. And your neighbor is anyone you happen to be with at any time in your life. Respecting and loving your neighbor can give everybody a good feeling.

Mr. Rogers: You know, when I was a little boy and I went to bed before everybody else in the family, I used to be so curious about what the other people in the family were doing. Particularly I wanted to know what my mother and father were doing when I wasn't with them. I used to think alot about that. And I even asked them about it and they said that was their own time together. And while it was fine to be curious about it, there were some things that were for just grown-ups to do. And I would learn about them when I was a grown-up myself. And so I waited and I grew up and I became a grown-up myself. You know, I think we should have some make-believe.

Mr. Rogers: Oh, there's somebody knocking at the door.

Chef Brockett: Speedy delivery!

Mr. Rogers: Speedy delivery? Somebody is saying, "Speedy delivery", but it doesn't sound like Mr. McFeely to me. Did it to you?

[Calls out]

Mr. Rogers: What did you say?

Chef Brockett: Speedy delivery!

Mr. Rogers: Who do you think that sounds like? Chef Brockett?

[Looks out window]

Mr. Rogers: It IS Chef Brockett.

Mr. Rogers: I was just thinking. You know, if you had all the toys in the world and you didn't have any imagination about how you would play with them, those toys would just sit there doing nothing. And that would be no fun. Thinking up good things to do with what you have gives everybody a good feeling.

Mr. Rogers: I was just thinking, you know work changes things. And children can change things by doing a good job. Like changing the way a room looks by picking up your toys when your play is over. Or changing the way your plate of food looks by eating your food. Good work can make good changes and can give a good feeling.

Mr. Rogers: Did you ever do something that your parents told you not to do? And when you did it, they got very angry and spanked you? Well, if children bite, or kick another person, or hurt their brothers or sisters, their parents can get very frightened and very angry. It's important to remember that if you do hurt a little brother or sister and your mother or dad punishes you, that's not because your mom or dad loves the baby better. No, it's because the baby is helpless. And your parents want you to grow to be a good brother or sister.
