Episode Notes
Chalkboard: None

Couch: Repeat of the couch gag from "The Twisted World of Marge Simpson" where the couch is a Whack-A-Mole game and the Simpsons are the moles (only in this version, the music is faster and more aggressive).

Episode Quotes
Marge: Homer, you didn't tell me Mr. Burns went broke and lost the nuclear power plant!
Homer: Now I can't remember every little thing that happens in my day.
Marge: You told me about that candy bar you found three times.
Bart: You found a candy bar?
Homer: Oh yes. Gather around, my son, and I shall tell you a tale.

Burns: You mean there are actually people who will pay good money for garbage?
Lisa: Not good money, really. Each can'll get you a nickel.
Burns: Ooh don't poo-poo a nickel, Lisa. A nickel will buy you a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake and a newsreel. With enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the polo grounds.
Lisa: (unimpressed) There's a can!

Mr. Burns: Where did I go wrong? I made all the right moves, didn't I?
Burns' Underlings: Yes, sir. Absolutely.
Mr. Burns: Oh, I see it now; you're nothing but a bunch of yes-men. I was making all the wrong moves, and you were to gutless to tell me!
Burns' Underlings: Yes, sir. Absolutely. Every move the wrong one.
