The Simpsons: Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy

After buying the new talking Malibu Stacy, Lisa realizes that Malibu Stacy and the phrases she says (such as "I wish they taught shopping in school" and "Let's buy make-up so the boys will like us!") are a horrible model for little girls to follow and sets out to create a more politically correct doll. Meanwhile, Grampa fears that he may be getting old, so he takes a job at Krusty Burger.

Episode Quotes
Kent Brockman's Daughter: My new doll is much better than Malibu Stacy. Do a newscast about her.
Kent Brockman: Ho ho, please, honey, Daddy's job is to bring people important news. Right now I'm busy preparing a report about the fortieth anniversary of Beetle Bailey.
Kent Brockman's Daughter: Oh, Daddy, that is boring. Talk about the dolly!
Kent Brockman: Well, you were right about the Berlin Wall.

Lisa: Make sure you get my mom's hair just right!
Stacy Lavelle: Um, I think we'll use someone different for the hair.
Lisa: How about me?
Stacy Lavelle: Um, there's something not quite…
Bart: How about me?
Stacy Lavelle: Uh…
Homer: How about me?
Stacy Lavelle: (yelling)You all have hideous hair!
(the family gasps) I mean, from a design point of view.

Lisa: Thanks for buying us these toys, Grampa.
Grampa: Ehh, why didn't you get something useful, like storm windows, or a nice pipe organ? I'm thirsty! Ew, what smells like mustard? There sure a lot of ugly people in your neighborhood. Oh! Look at that one.
(Homer parks the car in the driveway; everyone jumps out except Grampa.) Grampa: Ow, my glaucoma just got worse. The president is a Demmycrat. (Everyone rushes into the house) Hello? I can't unbuckle my seat belt. Hello? (Honks horn repeatedly)

Lisa: It's not funny, Bart. Millions of girls will grow up thinking that this is the right way to act; that they can never be more than vacuous ninnies whose only goal is to look pretty, land a rich husband, and spend all day on the phone with their equally vacuous friends talking about how damn terrific it is to look pretty and have a rich husband!
Bart: Just what I was going to say.

Episode Goofs
After Abe gives the family the silver dollars they put on their coats before they go shopping.
However, when seen in the car and later at the mall their coats are never seen again.

The black keys on Homer's left, have switched positions from when Homer first steps on the piano and when the shot switches to an overhead shot.

The rocket from Bart's playset shoots through the window and explodes offscreen but a second later it's indicated by the marks on the window, the window is clearly closed.

The podium and backdrop Lisa is playing with changes color between shots.

When Lisa first hears Malibu Stacy's voice she's leaning over the backdrop she's playing with but seconds later, she's one one side of it.

Lisa's beverage changes from water w/ ice to a glass of milk.

Also, the food on her plate changes throughout the scene.

When Lisa plays the recording that mimics Marge's statement, for some reason, Malibu Stacy is much tanner than she appears anywhere else in the episode.

Abe's boss tells him and his co-worker to put the mayo in the sun. They are both standing doing nothing, but as we hear the door close, the co-worker is suddenly at the counter wrapping burgers. Unless Abe's working w/ twins, there's no way he could have started working on the burgers in the amount of time.

Abe appears to have blue hair under his hat while he's speaking to his fellow elderly.

Stacy Lovell is drinking throughout the scene with Lisa but suddenly near the end of the scene, she suddenly had an olive in her drink that wasn't there before.

The three executives on the right side of the Malibu Stacy executive are different when we see the table from the other side.

The doorway of the toy store changes when the shot changes to a wide shot.
The doors have vanished and the blue color is gone.

It changes again when they leave the store before Homer returns to the piano.
The blue trim has returned but the tiled floor is missing and the doors now open outward instead of inward.
