  • Wanting a better paying career, Eb enters the accounting program of a correspondence school. When they mistakenly enroll him in their acting course, Eb believes it's destiny calling.

    • With "Haney's School of Mail Order Accounting", students receive a Bob Cratchit accounting desk, an autographed photo of Tiny Tim looking happy on Christmas Day, and an abacus with an electric cord on it.

    • Among the profitable occupations Eb is considering is brain "sturgeon", Rear Admiral, Greek millionaire, dictator and football star.

    • Oliver has another head-scratching moment when he watches Eb take a nap on an invisible bed he's imagined.

    • Eb enrolls in Clarkwell Correspondence School, which is Sam Drucker and Hank Kimball's old alma mater.

    • Sam, Hank and Eb sing the Clarkwell school song. They each sing it slightly different, but the lyrics are approximately: "Raise your glass to Clarkwell/ in rain and sleet and hail./ Raise your glass for Clarkwell,/ where you'll study through the mail."
