Episode Recap

Bart brings Abe to school in a special day for grandparents and he proceeds to embarrass Bart by lying. Abe gets a piece of mail saying that the seventh Hellfish is dead; this leaves only two of the Flying Hellfish left alive. When one is left, he will get to claim the legacy of art treasures they kept from the WWII. Who is the other Hellfish who hasn't died? Why it's Mr. Burns. Abe doesn't trust Mr. Burns, who is scheming on how to steal the treasure. Mr. Burns hires a world-famous assassin to take care of Abe, but none of his attempts kill Abe. When Abe goes to tell Homer and the family his tale, they do not believe him. Abe stays in Bart's room until the coast is clear. Abe tells Bart the story of the Hellfish, where he used to be ranked above Mr. Burns. Bart is highly skeptical. Mr. Burns comes in the night to steal Abe's key. When Bart sees this, he decides to help Abe stop Mr. Burns from taking the treasure. They take the Flanders' boat and go diving for it. After Bart brings it up onto the boat, Mr. Burns takes it from them and the he tries unsuccessfully to drown Bart. Abe and Mr. Burns have a scuffle on the shore and Abe wins. Just as Abe gets set to take the treasure, the authorities come to take the treasure back its rightful owner, a rich German man.
