Summary Edit

Mr. Finky has his class take a career test to see which jobs they're best suited for, then has them try out the career. Nicky ends up a butcher, Milo a stockbroker, and Pepper Ann a middle-school principal. When they end up miserable in their new "jobs", they begin to realize they can't rely on a test to tell them what's best for them.


Nicky: ...The important thing is that we all give these career tests a chance.
Um, excuse me, Mr. Finky, I think you must have handed me Shelf McClain's results by mistake.
Milo: Stockbroker? Stockbroker?! ...What's a stockbroker?

Nicky: One who monitors how much money companies are worth. You advise your clients when to buy, sell and trade shares of various businesses, hoping to make them a profit.

Milo: Oh! ... Stockbroker?!
Vera: Cry me a river, Herbert, cry me a river.
Pepper Ann: My life is worse than trash. It's the liquid sludge that leaks out of the trash bag and drips all over your shoes.
