The "P.V.Q. song" is a song sung by Professor Frink when trying to get Mr. Burns to take his idea for the P.V.Q. test to figure out which members of Springfield should go on his doomsday ark.


Professor Frink:
Forgive me if it seems like I'm attacking,
But I find the old IQ test badly lacking.
If you want to find out just what someone can do,
You need to learn that subject's P.V.Q.
It tests for:
Sympathy and empathy and group collaboration.
Artistry and neatness and complex socialization.
And every single aspect of a personality,
Hey, the P.V.Q.
Is A.O.K with me.
It tests for:
Sarcasm and prudence,
Not if you're Isaac Newton.
Confidence, ambition,
And the teams for whom you're rootin'.
Sideshow Mel:
So it's all the little foibles,
That can make a person whole.
Professor Frink:
Trust the P.V.Q.
The yardstick for the soul.
Now people, you're all geniuses,
Oh please...
My, my, well, thank you.
Professor Frink:
You can see this is no lark,
Emotional intelligence is needed for the ark.
Comic Book Guy:
You mean earnestness and ego,
And if they make a mean burrito.
Lindsey Naegle:
And the social grace to know,
When not to wear a Speedo.
Professor Frink:
Every trait that integrates a winning personality,
Yes, the P.V.Q.
Is what we'll do to find out who,
Will see us through,
Yes, the P.V.Q.
Is A.O.K.
With me...
Professor Frink:
