  • Bart becomes a genius after cheating on an intelligent test, and is treated like a genius.

    1.2 Bart the Genius

    This was a pretty good classic Simpsons episode, which explained a lot about Barts character. We see him spray painting Principal Skinner with the quotation "I Am a Weiner" and then we see him switch test papers with Martin Prince. My favorite parts of this episode are:

    1. Barts lyrics to "March of the Toreabors"
    2. Bart and Martin making faces at each other throught the window
    3. Bart turning green.
    4. The juxtaposition of Bart and Homers attention span.
    5. Homers quote "you may do what no other simpson has done...you may outsmart someone"
    6. The framed picture of Albert Einstein next to a framed picture of Bart.
    7. Barts example of a peradox..."youre damned if you do and your damned if you dont"
    8. Homers first..."why you little"
    9. The chase scene of Bart and Homer
    10. Bart misspelling confession

    Enjoy!
