Episode Summary

Jake's Dilemma
Jake shocks everyone when he announces that he quit his job, because he was miserable from all the micro-management. Rather than look for a new job, Jake decides to set up his own corporate financial consultant business. Even though he'll be making less money, Joan feels that all that's important is Jake enjoying what he does. Jake soon realizes that he doesn't enjoy running his own business, so Joan persuades him to go out and find a job he has a passion for. The trouble is he just doesn't know what it is he has a passion for. To Joan's chagrin, he ends up going back to his old job. Joan's advice inadvertently works better on Ruby, who signs on as the school's therapist. Meanwhile, during an argument with Mark over a pre-set radio station, Alice runs over a stray dog. After getting it back from the vet, the other teachers convince Mark, who has abandonment issues, to take it in -- only to have it run away from him. And Jake and Steinie make a Halloween bet where Jake agrees to give up smoking and Steinie agrees to give up sweets. Whomever caves in to temptation first has to go around trick-or-treating around the neighborhood wearing a humiliating outfit that the other person chose.moreless
