Plot

After a close encounter (Indiana Jones style Indiana Bart), Bart Simpson manages to retrieve Homer's jar of change to take to school. His best friend, Milhouse, in the meantime, has chosen to take his Magic 8 ball. Bart asks the ball whether he and Milhouse will still be friends by the end of the day, and the ball predicts, no. Both are puzzled by how this could happen. Dr. Henry Indiana Jones, Jr. ... For the comic book series of the same name, see Bart Simpson comics. ... The Magic 8-ball is a toy used for fortune-telling. ...


A new girl from Phoenix, Arizona, called Samantha Stanky starts at Springfield Elementary School and Milhouse falls in love with her. To Bart's dismay and anger, Milhouse and Samantha now spend all of their free time kissing in Bart's treehouse. They ignore Bart, leaving nothing for him to do but leave. In order to restore the previous status quo, Bart calls Samantha's father and lets him know what's happening, and Mr. Stanky rushes to Bart's treehouse and takes her away before she can even explain. She is sent to St. Sebastian's school for Wicked Girls, an all-girls convent school. Bart lets Milhouse know that he told on him and Samantha and they fight over Bart's actions. Milhouse visits Samantha at the convent school and Bart apologizes to her, but she say it's OK - she loves Saint Sebastian's. However, she still has feelings for Milhouse and gives him a goodbye kiss, despite her knowingly violating school rules.

Meanwhile, Lisa is watching a documentary on the health problems of obesity. She is fearful that Homer's obesity will lead to an early death. On Lisa's suggestion, Marge orders a subliminal weight-loss tape for Homer. Humorously enough, the company is out of the tapes and sends Homer a "Vocabulary Builder" tape. Homer ends up eating more than ever, but his vocabulary is through the roof. However when he realises that the tape doesn't work he gets rid of it and his vocabulary quickly returns to normal (or maybe worse than that).


Further info

  • Madonna was the first choice to play Samantha.
  • It is unclear whether Stanky or Stankey is the correct spelling of Samantha's last name as both have been used in official and unofficial media.
  • This is the first episode in which Milhouse's father, Kirk Van Houten, is seen.
  • While the "Good Morning Burger" was intended as a grotesque exaggeration of the unhealthy nature of fast food, Burger King later introduced the "Meat'normous Omelette Sandwich", which bears a remarkable resemblance to the description given in the episode (it only lacks the "rich, creamery butter")
  • Bart comes to talk to Lisa about his guilt since Marge is not home and he can not understand what Homer is saying. After this episode, he often comes to Lisa first, so he may have decided that she was a good person to talk to.
  • The song played by one of the French-Canadian nuns is Dominique by Soeur Sourire a.k.a. the Singing Nun, a popular song in French and worldwide hit in 1963.
  • This is one of the episodes that deals with Milhouse's sexuality. In many other episodes it has been hinted that Milhouse could be homosexual. Other episodes suggest he has a crush on Lisa.
