Life Skills Without Magic is a class taught by Merryweather. Mal mentions that she had once unsuccessfully tried the a spell to turn back time because she was late for Life Skills Without Magic and wound up getting detention. During one of the lessons, Merryweather is going to teach the class how to balance a checkbook. When this was announced, Evie whispered to Mal "What's a checkbook?" (Mal did not know either.)
