The Simpsons: Bart Gets A 'Z'

In the tragic life of Mrs. Krabappel, she wakes up to nothing but a bed filled with tests, exercise she barely manages to do and when coming to school, she has to try and educate all her students, who sit in their chair all texting and playing games on their cell phones. When Krabappel decides to confiscate every student’s phone, Bart decides to do something about the matter, and spikes her coffee with booze, resulting in her making a fool of herself. However, when Principal Skinner sees her joking around, he fires her, giving the class a new, “funkier” teacher.

Episode Quotes
Bart: Hmmm. You know, my Dad is a lot more fun after a few beers. Maybe Mrs. K would be nicer if we "Irish" up her coffee.
Nelson: Put blood in it?
Bart: No! Booze.

Bart: Mrs K, you have to get out of here. When was the last time you washed your hair?
Mrs. Krabappel: Hmm, two weeks ago...
Bart: Well, that's better than me, but still, you gotta get out.

Milhouse: Maybe we can find an answer in this bookstore.
Bart: Book stores don't have answers, the just have creepy guys sitting in easy chairs at the end of aisle ways.
