The one where Liz gets all morose about how at least she's good at being a lazy idiot because baby-baby-baby-yeah-right!

(Original Publication Date, 21 January 1991)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in Social Studies watching a pop quiz. When asked what the capital of British Columbia is, Dawn correctly answer "Victoria"

Panel 2: When Teacher asks Liz what the capital of Alberta is, she does not give the correct response (Edmonton) nor does she give the Elly-likesitcom buffoon response "A"; she meekly sputters that she does not know.

Panel 3: When they break for lunch, Dawn is baffled and tells Liz that those answers were easy. She goes on to say that Liz is turning into a failure because she's bombed three quizzes in a row.

Panel 4: Liz whines that at least she's good at something.

Summary: Given that what she eventually gets to be 'good' at is "sit on her ass drinking coffee and complaining about her kids and husband" like a woman is 'supposed' to, I don't actually see what Dawn's concern is, do you?
