Quotes: Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?
"Babysitting Mama is another entry in the Mama series. It started with Cooking Mama but she has branched out into other areas like gardening and crafting. What's next Mama? Camping? Oh wait, she's done that one too. I bet there's no line of work she couldn't find herself in. You know I could totally see her like a car mechanic. (Announcer Voice) Car Mechanic Mama! (Voice mimicing Mama) We need to change out your fuel filter and replace your spark plugs. (Normal Voice) Truly is there any line of work Mama can't do?"

"Of course, as First Lord of the Treasury, I could propose a special vote that would cover all expenses, if it were not that, as Leader of the Opposition, it would be my duty to resist it, tooth and nail. Or, as Paymaster General, I could so cook the accounts that, as Lord High Auditor, I should never discover the fraud. But then, as Archbishop of Titipu, it would be my duty to denounce my dishonesty and give myself into my own custody as first Commissioner of Police."
Pooh-Bah, "Lord High Everything Else" in The Mikado by Gilbert and Sullivan

"You know, I've had so many careers, it's hard to keep track of all 135 of them... and counting."

Grand Priestess: I... am the Grand Priestess!
Fry: Aren't you also the Grand Midwife?
Grand Priestess: And the Grand Lunchlady. I work five jobs... all Grand.
Futurama, "The Beast with a Billion Backs"
