  • Lisa discovers that she has a knack for solving crossword puzzles and soon enters a nationwide tournament. Homer wins a huge amount of money betting on her in the tournament, but bets against her in the finals upsetting Lisa tremendously.

    There are some very clever moments in this epiosde and genuinely funny moments as well (Like when Lisa forms crosswords in her mind when she is riding on the school bus) which is why I am giving this episode a higher rating than I think this episode deserves. Once again we see Homer taking up a new job. Enough already. One thing I would like to say: The man playing against Lisa in the finals obviously cheated by throwing down his fake eyeglasses to distract Lisa. So wouldn't he have been disqualified for cheating? A good episode, but it's flawed.
