  • Lisa grows more and more concerned for her family's souls.

    We open in the time of Moses, where Homer the Thief is distraught to recieve the commandment "Thou shalt not steal." In the present, a cable installer offers to sell Homer an illegal hookup. Later, in Sunday school, Lisa is alarmed to learn that stealing can cost you your soul. While on the ride ome from church, Bart is imused to repeat the word "hell" again and again. Lisa grows more concerned when she observes stealing in everyday life, like Marge eating grapes in the supermarket. Concerned for her family's soul, Lisa vows to no longer watch Homer's illegal cable, no matter how good the shows are. Homer invites all his friends over to watch an exciting heavyweight fight, but the sight of Lisa staring mournfully from the front yard robs him of his joy. He joins Lisa and when the fight is over, he climbs the utility pole and cuts of the cable.
