“I was going to pass you... until then. But you've failed.”
―Mr. Simpkins failing Wilson

Koko Pulls it Off is the twenty-third episode of the first season.

Plot

Emery brings Mr. Simpkins, a representative from the Department of Chuggers, to test the trainees for their passenger badges. In the middle of an excited Koko starting her test, the Jiggle-O-Meter, a device Simpkins uses to measure the smoothness of the ride, goes haywire and starts making a loud beeping noise. This scares Koko who accidentally bumps into her coach and misunderstands Simpkins' confusing instructions. Simpkins, however, brushes everything off as Koko's fault and not only angrily fails her, but also tells her she wouldn't be allowed to retake the test for an entire year.

Koko runs off crying and eventually meets Irving, who, after noticing how devastated she is, asks her what's wrong. Upon hearing about the incident, Irving decides to have a word with Simpkins, asking Koko to come along too. They arrive at the Training Yard right when Wilson is finishing his test. Irving bumps into Wilson's coach after he has decoupled from it, resulting in Simpkins falling down and the Jiggle-O-Meter going crazy. Simpkins fails Wilson without the blink of an eye, making the unfairness of his review methods even the more evident - and giving Irving the perfect moment to speak up. He scolds Simpkins hard, really hammering down the importance of being able to swallow your pride to admit your mistakes.

Simpkins, now completely embarrassed, apologises for his previous rude behaviour and both passes Wilson and lets Koko retake her test successfully - even leaving the Jiggle-O-Meter behind entirely. Having learned his lesson, Simpkins is proud to present the trainees with their passenger badges.
