  • Bart is jealous of Milhouse's new relationship.

    A new girl, Samantha Stanky, moves to Springfield and joins Bart and Milhouse's class. After class, Milhouse walks her home. Bart is stunned when Milhouse shows up in the treehouse with Samantha. Bart goes to get some girl-type comics from Lisa and when he returns Milhouse is kissing Samantha. Meanwhile, Lisa is scared Homer's overeating will shorten his life. She gets Marge to order some loose wight tapes. Unaware he has been sent vocabulary tapes, Homer puts on the headphones and falls asleep. When he wakes up, he is articulate. To Bart's dismay, Milhouse and Samanthat spent all their free time together. Bart tells Samantha's father about her relationship and her father orders her to never see Milhouse again and enrolls her in a Catholic school. After 2 weeks of listening to the tapes, Homer gains 13 pounds and throws them away. He quickly loses his new vocabulary skills and even forgets the most basic words. Bart tells Milhouse what he did and they fight. Afterwords, they go to Samantha's new school where she and Milhouse kiss for the last time.
