Episode Notes
Advertisement Gag: Principal Skinner - I paint houses

Chalkboard Gag: I will not put hot sauce in the CPR dummy.

Couch Gag: There's an Olympic-sized pool leading to the couch. The Simpsons take their places on the marks and swim to the couch once a starter pistol goes off. Marge is first, Lisa's second, Bart is third, and Maggie is last. The family looks around, wondering where Homer is. Cut to a shot of an unconscious Homer floating facedown in the pool.
