Krusty bombs out at a comedy festival with hopelessly out-of-date material. After a hard drinking binge, Krusty's friends, Bart and Jay Leno, help re-invent the clown as a cynical, Bill Hicks-meets-Dennis Miller-meets-George Carlin-style comedian who isn't afraid to tell it like it is.
Chalkboard: Pain is not the cleanser
Couch: Repeat of the couch gag from "The Cartridge Family" where the couch is a trough of water and The Simpsons hurry in to extinguish the flames on their butts by sitting in the water.
Hank Williams Jr: (Singing the country song entitled, “Canyonero”) Can you name the truck with four wheel drive,
Smells like a steak and seats thirty-five?
Well it goes real-slow with a hammer down,
It’s a country-fried truck endorsed by a clown.
Back-up singers: Canyonero
Hank Williams Jr: Twelve yards long, two lanes wide,
Sixty-five tons of American pride.
Top of the line in utility sports,
Unexplained fires are a matter for the courts.
She blinds everybody with her super high beams,
She’s a squirrel squashing, dear smacking driving machine.
Comedian: I finally got around to reading the dictionary...turns out the Zebra did it!
(The crowd laughs)
Homer: I don't get it.
Lisa: Dad, the Zebra didn't do it, its just a word at the end of the dictionary.
Homer: I still don't get it.
Lisa: It's just a joke.
Homer: Oooh! I get it! I get jokes. (Laughs)
Krusty: Have you ever noticed how there are two phone books? A white one and a yellow one? What's the deal with that?
Lisa: One's residential, the other is business.
Krusty: Well, that...makes sense. What'll they think of next? Blue pages?
Marge: They have those. They're Government listings.
Krusty: I see.
