  1. 1. Gerald

    Swing and a miss! The correct response is “Gerald’s Next,” where Gerald is preparing for his big solo in the upcoming school musical and is devastated and confused when his voice begins to get deeper and deeper with each passing day. On the night of the big play, he stumbles through an awful attempt at his solo and ruins the night for the whole class. In the guidance counselor’s office the next day, he’s finally told that even though his voice was already pretty deep, it’s going to continue to get deeper throughout his life until he eventually sounds like a sick cruise ship horn that only dogs and rats can hear, and he will go on to be followed around by the four-legged vermin wherever he goes until he finally meets his plagued demise.

  2. 2. Helga

    Get that memory checked! You should have selected “Helga Awakened,” where Helga notices that everyone at school is staring and giggling at her, but doesn’t understand why until Phoebe pulls her aside and tells her it’s because of her dad’s new commercial where he explains how he has just gotten his first period at the age of 48. Needing to see for herself, Helga watches the commercial to find her dad, Bob of Big Bob’s Beepers, angrily lash out to the camera about how he was unable to outrun time, and has learned once and for all that no one is safe from Mother Nature’s painful, perverted rules. As Helga is finally burdened with the knowledge that has alluded her throughout her blissful childhood and begins to feel the weight of her ancestors’ cross, she is irreversibly changed forever.

  3. 3. Sid

    Nope! The correct answer is season two’s “Sid Must Learn,” where Dino Spumoni returns to P.S. 118 for career day, but this time his skin has dozens of wet, oily, swollen bumps protruding from every visible inch of his body. No one really notices how much different Dino looks except Sid, who worries that the great singer has some sort of terrible foreign disease. Sid seeks answers from the school nurse, who sits him down and tells him that Dino is just still going through puberty, which is something that every person who has ever lived has suffered through from adolescence until death, and that every person will continue to suffer through until the end of time.

  4. 4. Stinky

    Not quite! In “Stinky’s Inherited Curse,” Stinky is going through a particularly rough patch of puberty, as his arms nearly triple in length over the course of just a few days. His friends instantly view his mysterious growth as an opportunity, though, and use his freakishly long arms as a way to win the city basketball championship for P.S. 118. Stinky scores 70 points to win them the title, and as everyone rushes the court to celebrate the win, Stinky cries because he knows in his heart of hearts that this will never end.

  5. 5. Harold

    Sorry! In season three’s “First Go The Fathers,” Harold is preparing for his bar mitzvah with his dad by reading from the Torah every day after school, but is interrupted one day when his father begins growing an excruciatingly painful second Adam’s apple and is rushed to the hospital. A confused Harold is sat down by a doctor and told that unfortunately, his dad is likely to grow several more agonizing Adam’s apples before he finally croaks, just as his father and his father’s father did, because puberty never stops until your aching, hormonal body is finally laid to rest.

  6. 6. Eugene

    No, you were looking for “It’s Eugene’s Turn,” where Eugene decides that he doesn’t want to be so clumsy anymore and turns to his mom for advice. Unfortunately for Eugene, though, his mom is really going through a tough time with her own puberty, as her tangled pubic hair is growing at an accelerated rate out from under her pants and tripping her anytime she tries to leave the house. After a long talk with his mom about how being clumsy has always run in the family, and that tripping over his ever-growing pubes is a perfect example, Eugene accepts that it’s both okay to be a klutz and that puberty is going to drag on until his death, just as it did for each of his unlucky ancestors.

  7. 7. Arnold

    Correct! In the rare flash-forward episode “Arnold’s Reckoning,” a 70-year-old Arnold finally breaks after a lifetime of denial and accepts that puberty is a curse set upon mankind for no apparent rhyme or reason and, despite his best attempts at staying positive, acknowledges that there is simply no purpose for nature’s unthinkable cruelty. Standing on Grandpa’s and Grandma’s graves decades after their passing, Arnold drops to his knees and cries out toward the heavens with a cracked, pubescent yelp, covered head to toe in blackheads and smelling like a gym locker room after another humiliating series of bodily changes. All alone and nearing his own end, he wishes that he hadn’t passed on his cursed genetics to yet another unsuspecting generation, but rather could’ve had all of mankind’s sins die with him and him alone.
