* AllForNothing: Despite all the recycling the Junior Achievers' Club did, they only made a check for 75 cents (which wouldn't even cover the gas for the drive over) and had to cancel their field trip to Albany (with Mr. Skinner even saying they wouldn't do any more recycling). Even worse, despite Lisa saying they had collected enough paper to save a whole tree, Mr. Skinner was so angry that he ended up knocking a tree down while driving out of the recycling center.
