The Simpsons: Money Bart

A visit by a Springfield Elementary alum-turned-Ivy-League student pushes Lisa to question her own go-getter attitude and reevaluate the scope of her extracurricular activities. Convinced that there is no such thing as having too many clubs or activities listed on her resume, Lisa jumps at the opportunity to coach Bart’s little league team.

Despite having little understanding of baseball, Lisa coaches the team to a record winning streak by putting her book smarts in statistics and probability into play.
But when Bart questions Lisa’s coaching tactics and confronts her for taking the fun out of baseball, Lisa benches him from the championship game.

Hoping to lift his spirits, Marge spends the day with Bart at an amusement park where MLB manager and former catcher Mike Scioscia (guest-voicing as himself) gives Bart sound advice and reminds him of his genuine love of the sport.

Meanwhile, with one last chance to win the game, Lisa makes an unexpected call and learns that there is more to sports than winning

Episode Notes
Chalkboard Gag:

I must not write all over the Walls

in an additional site gag, this is also written all over the walls of the classroom.

Couch Gag:

The gag opens with a still shot of the Simpsons on the couch.
The shot widens to reveal the shot is actually a film still being shown in a inhumane animation sweatshop with hundreds of workers painting individual animation cells.
A cell is handed to a small child who takes it and climbs a large vat and dips into the chemicals within.

The shot pans left to reveal a bone riddled floor and a large hole with a ladder going to down into the darkness. Inside the abyss we see children pushing racks of Simpsons t-shirts along wooden walkways.
The bottom reveals 2 men throwing kittens into a shredder with the fur coming out the other side.
Workers are using the fur to stuff Bart Simpson dolls.

The shot pans to the left revealing another worker sealing boxes with a dolphin headed tape dispenser, then shows yet another worker packing DVD cases with discs but before he does this, he punches a hole in the disc with what is revealed to be an emaciated unicorn chained to the wall.

The gag ends with an exterior shot of the 20th Century FOX logo surrounded by broken down buildings and a barbed wire fence.

Cultural References
The couch gag for this episode was done by Banksy.
His name can be seen spray painted on the exterior of the school as Bart leaves after writing on the chalkboard in the opening.

Banksy is the pseudonym of a British graffiti artist, political activist and painter, whose identity is unknown.
