Molly is a resilient young inventor who would rather work smart than work hard. That's why, when her father asks her to take out the trash, she sees it as an opportunity to flex her scientific muscles. Instead of continuing to trudge out into the nighttime rain in her red slicker, she conceives of a rig that utilizes her family's clotheslines and her bicycle, which she can control from the comfort of her room. This sets a creative storm in Molly's mind, leading her to automate other unsavory chores, like cleaning the fish bowl, making her bed, dusting and mowing the lawn. She even creates a foot-operated machine that can turn the pages of her textbook while she's busy typing. Naturally, as an adult, Molly makes a living doing what she's always done best, this time as a technician for General Electric where she is programming robots to perform fast, efficient inspections.
