what i liked- the cat burglar taking bart's stamp collection, "Lisa, never ever stop in the middle of a hoedown", the ending with Malloy escaping jail, and the men who were digging keep digging (No, no, dig UP stupid!), Homer choking the stage manager, "Fell asleep? I was drunk!" "I believe you dad", the ending to act one, etc.
hilarious episode from my favorite writer, John Swartzwelder. lots of hilarity and a good mystery aspect to it, what more could you want? A+
