On last night's episode of The Simpsons, Bart and his class got annoyed when Mrs. Krabappel stole their cell phones. So what's the natural solution? Get her drunk, of course!
When Bart slipped a little alcohol in her morning coffee, he accidentally got her fired. Bart tried to get Mrs. K back on the right track using a self help book, The Answer.
After that failed, Bart decided to try honesty with Principal Skinner, but in the end, it took the cool substitute teacher, Mr. Vaughn, being a drunk himself to get her job back. That's pretty much "Bart Gets a Z" in a nutshell.
Of course, along the way we were treated some of the best of The Simpsons quotes we've heard in awhile. Here's some of our favorites:
Nelson [about the school's ancient computer]: My stroked out grandfather has more memory that that thing
Milhouse: How's he doing?
Nelson: Better, thanks | permalink
Lisa: I thought you were studying the Lincoln-Douglas debates?
Bart: You mean the L-man, D-dawg flame wars? | permalink
Marge: I'm worried about Mrs Krabappel
Bart: No worries, I heard in the old four square court she was doing great
Lisa: No one even plays four square anymore, they just gossip | permalink
Bart: Mrs K, you have to get out of here. When was the last time you washed your hair?
Edna Krabapple: Hmm, two weeks ago...
Bart: Well, that's better than me, but still, you gotta get out
Bart: I'm a Simpson, and a Simpson never gets up unless he's tried at least one easy thing | permalink
