  • This episode contained my favorite ending of all time. As Homer cuts the power your TV screen goes black

    Homer gets an illegal cable TV hookup for free just in time for the major boxing match. Lisa learns the 8th Commandment "thou shall not steal", and fears the family will be punished for stealling the cable. Marge joins Lisa when she decides not to watch the television, and on the night of the big match, Homer feels sorry for sending his family outside. He joins them outside while his friends watch along in front of the TV. When the match is over he snips the cable, leaving half the neighborhood in blackout mode in the process. A funny episode as Lisa grows mor concered for her family's souls...
