ETA: "I will follow Oscar' campaign rules from now on."
Bart, the only student at Springfield Elementary to miss the state testing, has to do extremely well on the makeup test in order for the school to avoid being closed for having too low of an average; Homer uses a discarded parking meter to make some extra money by planting it at various places around town
That movie trailer couch gag was great. "The Couch: Don't Get Comfortable."
Really love how Burns hiked up energy rates: Attach numbers to economist's backs, then sic the hounds on them. Whoever the hounds catch is how much the energy cost goes up.
So it's come to this: The future of the elementary school rests on Bart. EVERYONE was counting on him, even the background kids no one's seen before. This is like, the 5th time Bart had to study for a test, and failed miserably? (and, again, he barely passes by dumb luck). I did like Bart's dream, which ended with the school becoming a spinach farm employed by a dozen Popeyes.
Hans Moleman's family was creepy as all hell.
