    • Marge: Bart, I feel so bad for going so many years without, mmm, hmm--What's that word where you encourage something to grow?
      Bart and Homer: (Both mumble "I don't know," in unison.)
      Lisa: Nurturing.
      Marge: Nurturing your brilliant brain, so I got tickets to the opera tonight. Hurry up. Get dressed. It starts at 8:00.
      Bart: Oh, Mom. Not tonight!
      Homer: Come on, Bart, your mother's only trying to help, so go ahead and enjoy the show.
      Marge: Homer, you're going too.
      Homer: But I'm not a genius. Why should I suffer?
