Storyline

Zach offers Annie and all the others favors for money since he wants to buy a new game and can't get an allowance-raise at home. Plato points out that wanting money too badly leads to pain, as King Midas learned in "The Golden Touch". When Zach reveals that he said something hurtful to his mom, Aurora mentions how painful a short temper is for the one with the temper by telling "The King and His Hawk", where even Genghis Kahn didn't control his enough to not regret his actions later, and Plato reminds that waiting pays off, as shown in "The Magic Thread" where a boy learned that experiencing only the good moments in life didn't turn out as he expected. Even a set of Bible verses from Ecclesiates reminds that "To everything there is a season". Written by brainybrailler@comcast.net

Trivia

The word Peter is asked to conjugate is "vivare", Latin for "to live", which may have been symbolic since just after this he starts moving ahead through certain points in his life rather than actually experiencing them. See more »

Goofs

The shelf Midas puts his cup on is full of goblets of different materials but none matching the first, but after the close-up of him setting it down, they are all revealed to be made of gold, identical to the one. See more »
