Episode Summary

EDIT
Bart's Inner Child
AIRED:
Homer sees an ad in the paper for a trampoline and he goes to Krusty's and picks it up. The kids love it and he charges the neighbors to use it. When all the children get injured on it, Marge makes him get rid of it. He pushes it off a cliff, a la Wile E. Coyote. Homer and Marge have an argument in which he says that Marge is no fun. With this realization, she gets very angry and goes to her sisters' house. Patty and Selma show her a self-help video. When Marge starts looking at the self-help information starring Brad Goodman with Homer their relationship improves. They go to a seminar with the kids. Bart acts out while there and the lecturer brings him on stage. The guru tells the town that Bart is the "inner child" that they should all strive to be. Lisa of course is skeptical, thinking that the guru is just selling easy answers, but the town is buying it. So much so, they hold a "do what you feel" festival. It breaks out into a riot when everybody starts to act irresponsibly and the "be like Bart" era comes to an end. We end with the Simpsons watching the newest episode of "MacArnagle" together.moreless
