  • -Flashback- Abe: Look at this grades! They're a disgrace! No TV for a week! Kid Homer: WHY YOU LITTLE -strangles Grandpa-

    So Burns is inspecting the power plant in the hot air ballon from "Around the World in 80 Days" and after changing a graffitti is blown away by wind. Homer shoots a gargolyle that lowers Burns to the groud, and burns gifts him tickets to nothing-head day at the new stadium (not all the money & all his stuff like Homer wanted). There, when the jumbotron asks them to dance, Bart refuses, so Homer tickles him until he pees himself, making Marge send him to parenting classes.

    Sooo, there Homer says he strangled Bart cause he was raised like that (cue flahsback form kid homer strangling Abe). Dr. Zander hires Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to strangle Homer so he feels like Bart (why?). Then Homer can't hurt Bart, so he takes this as a freepass to do whatever he wants (cause Marge, Skinner, Edna, Wiggum and every authority can't do anythign). MArge goes to ask Zander for more therapy but she learns that the economy made them lose their jobs.

    Marge hires him for a weekend by paying him beans. At the wilderness, Zander plans to fix the bond between Homer and Bart. Bart then puts a snake on Homer's pants, Zander touches Homer's penis & the snake retuns to the pants. Bart makes HOmer bump into cacti, and then makes Homer attmept to hang himself, cause Bart will cut the rope (like the app!). But Bart doens't, he prank texts Moe, making Zander choke Bart.

    Oh, I forgot that filler scene of Marge & Lisa watchign sad pony films doing each other mani-pedies and eating sundaes. Then Bart frees Homer, and they sue Dr. Zander, getting his hollow tree by winning the case, and they agree that therapy works.

    Overall: While the story was kinda all-over-the-place, it was really funny ("No star wars parodies!"). I agree though that after Bart prank texted Moe he should have saved Homer instead of burping. But the episode was hilarious, so I give it a 9/10.
