  • A great moral episode.

    The episode starts off with a flashback to the time when
    Moses was alive and there was much sinning. Homer "steals" cable by having it illegally hooked up. Now he spends 24 hours a day watching it (you can tell by the huge impression in the couch where he sat). There are many great scenes such as Lisa's vision of her family in Hell and Lisa telling her mom to pay for two grapes at the grocery store. When everybody is watching the big fight, Homer realizes what he had done wrong and relents to Lisa's silent protest. The cable is cut and supposedly Homer's soul is saved.
