  • The Burrito Story: Jamie, Reggie, Vicki, Harriet are in the Burrito business game.

    The Burrito Story is a very funny and somewhat educational episode about the cost of running a business. In this case it is the Burrito manufacturing business. Jamie needs more money so he tries to ask his parents for money but they are tapped out. Ted suggests to get a job in this case a business. At first Jamie, Reggie and Vicki get into the Burrito business. Things are going well and they are making some money by selling them to students at their school. Harriet later on gets into the business as well. A local diner had tried the burritos and liked them so much that they ordered a whole bundle of burritos. That night they are making burritos then the parents found out about the burrito business. While the kids are making a lot of money (10 cents per burrito which is very low), the cost of the food and man power is very expensive and they are actually losing money. The kids learn a valuable lesson in business. The episode ends with the whole family and Harriet manufacturing burritos to fulfill the diner's order.
