  • The "a" story was very good, but the "b" story was a little far-fetched... I mean why would Bart be dancing??

    Foolishly, Homer pulls all of his stock out of Pumpkin futures just before the pre-Halloween boom in the Pumpkin market. Broke and dejected, he is reduced to taking a loan from his sisters-in-law, Patty and Selma. Clearly relishing Homer's degradation, Patty and Selma make him their slave. Meanwhile, Bart is forced to take ballet lessons. Homer waits on Patty and Selma hand and foot until he admits to Marge that he lost all of the family's money and needed to take a loan. To make ends meet, Homer becomes a limousine driver but needs to go to the DMV to get the proper license. While there, Patty and Selma are nearly fired for smoking on the job, but Homer steps inand saves the day by claiming that he was smoking. Their jobs saved, Patty and Selma forget Homer's debt to them. As a result of his lessons, Bart has grown to love ballet and isn't ashamed to admit it even when a gang of bullies accuses him of being a sissy.
