At the Fix-it Shop, Maria feels honored to be fixing Mother Goose's toaster. MG feels lucky as well, since there's no way to get a toaster fixed in Nursery Rhyme Land.

In song, she reveals that Little Jack Horner became a cook, Jill (of Jack and Jill) became a doctor, and Little Miss Muffet became a bug-and-spider specialist.
