  • Lisa: bart's gone! i bet it's because of that horrible ivory dealer, dad! Homer: he took bart too? that wasn't part of our deal blackheart! that wasn't part! Homer: D'oh! Lisa: A deer! Marge: A female deer

    this episode is a very well-known one with classic scenes such as homer, after kids say that they'd pay to see the elephant, homer saying "that gives me an idea" and puts up a sign that says "GO AWAY!" messing up the house seconds after cleaning it was a great gag which pays marge back for making them clean in the first place. homer wanting to clean the basement until he realises it's the messiest room in the house and then hallucinating that the cleaning products were killing him was great too. but the main storyline is bart getting an elephant which he names stampy and the simpsons go broke (similar to lisa's pony except the pony didn't crash through the peanut factory). chief wiggum's appearance was great too, not believing any calls about any crimes. this episode is great (didn't know how else to end the review).
