Vanessa Huxtable pleaded with her father, Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable, to buy her a clarinet. Dr. Huxtable gave in and bought Vanessa a clarinet. The clarinet cost $245.00! Vanessa promised that she would practice, but she got bored pretty fast. Vanessa wanted to quit the clarinet. But Dr. Huxtable said "Nope! You have made a commitment to the recital and you're going to do it!" Mary Test could not stand for that, so she jumped into the magic TV and confronted Dr. Huxtable! Mary scolds Dr. Huxtable for not letting Vanessa quit the clarinet. Mary encouraged Vanessa to fight with Dr. Huxtable over the clarinet. So Vanessa and Dr. Huxtable began fighting over the clarinet. They pulled at it and caused the clarinet to fly off the TV screen and into the living room, where it broke in two in Mary's home. Mary jumped back to the living room of her home. When Hugh Test, Mary's father, found out about this, he was very angry. Mary got in big trouble by her father. Mary got punished. She was not allowed to go to the movies. Mary became very angry. She glared at Hugh and told him, "You are as evil as Verminous Snaptrap!!" She then went to her bedroom crying and sobbing.
