Plot

Homer comes across an advertisement in the newspaper for a free trampoline. He rushes to the address from the advertisement, where Krusty is giving it away. After Homer, Bart and Lisa use the trampoline for a while, Marge expresses the danger of trampolines. However, Homer believes it enhances their house, and has grand plans of building a theme park in their yard, using the trampoline, a mud pit, and soiled mattresses. Homer soon decides to charge others a fee to use the trampoline. But soon people begin to get injured, and Homer accepts Marge's advice to get rid of the trampoline. After failing at his various attempts to get rid of the trampoline, Homer turns to Bart for help. Bart attaches a bike lock to the trampoline, which is soon, as Bart intended it to be, stolen by Snake. For other uses, see Trampoline (disambiguation). ...

Marge and Homer argue later that night, with Homer telling Marge that even though getting the trampoline was a mistake at least he was willing to try new things, while she was boring and nagged too much. Marge disagrees, but after discovering that Bart and Lisa agree with Homer's assessment, she becomes annoyed and stays the night at Patty and Selma's house. While there, she is introduced to an infomercial featuring self-help guru Brad Goodman, who supposedly can help her with her "chronic nagging." After Marge and Homer watch a Brad Goodman video, Marge is more tolerant and the two of them get along better. Observing how out of control Bart is, they take the family to see Brad Goodman's live lecture in the hopes that it will change him. Bart interrupts the lecture, and Brad Goodman encourages the town to follow Bart's spontaneous attitude ('Be like the boy'). Soon, the whole town begins to act like Bart, which means Bart's rebellious ways are no longer unique, putting him in a slump.

To celebrate their new-found attitude, the town holds a 'Do As You Feel' festival (in stark contrast to the annual 'Do As We Say' Festival, started by German settlers in 1946). But the festival soon goes awry because those responsible for building the stages and maintaining the rides did not feel like doing a thorough job, resulting in a runaway Ferris wheel and more. Arguments begin, as everybody has been encouraged to always say exactly what is on their mind, and soon a riot starts. Bart is quickly blamed for starting the whole 'Do As You Feel' trend. The town chases after Bart, but Homer drives by in a float and saves him. The town gives up the chase and decides to go to the old mill to get some cider.
