In an effort to make Davy appreciate school, Hetty pushes Davy to experience the hardships of work at the cannery. When Davy showed up late for work, he attempted to reset the time clock and ended up breaking the instrument.
Jasper relates to Davy's awkwardness and tries to build his confidence by providing him with several meaningful tasks. He makes Davy his personal secretary and begins to teach him taxonomy. Hetty becomes upset when their plan does not drive Davy back to school.
Jasper and Davy win a race during a get together for the cannery workers. Afterwards, Jasper takes on Davy as an apprentice. Davy eventually returns to school

Wasn't it funny how Hetty attempted to look dignified after being plastered by Davy with Jasper's 'Aqua vacuum?'
