  • To attract tourists and make more money for public schools Springfield decides to legalize gambling. Unfortunatley Marge developes a gambling problem and begings to neglect her family.

    This episode was hysterical! The first time I saw it I don't think I stopped laughing the entire way through. It had so many great moments! The part with the boogyman was so funny! Especialy when Marge walked in and Homer was pointing a gun at her. And Homer's "photographic memory" was hilarius! Homer had so many funny lines in this episode: "I call him Gamblor and it's time we snatched your mother from his neon claws!", "Remember when I let that escaped lunatic into the house because he was dressed like Santa Clause? Well YOU have a gambling problem." I loved the part with Mr. Burns and the Spruce Moose. Smithers: That's a great model sir. Mr. Burns: Model? This was one of my favorite episodes.
