  • Bart goes to juvie

    While at a downtown department store, Bart uses a wedding gift registry to sign himself and his bride "Lotta Cooties" for wedding presents. He invites a number of people to attend his wedding and he plans to return all the unused gifts for store credit. He gets all the gifts delivered but he gets caught by Chief Wiggum. The judge sentences Bart to six months of juvenile detention. Bart tries to find his way at the center, and when Homer becomes a guard, it doesn't improve his situation at all. The boys and girls are joined for dance lessons, but Bart's partner Gina decides she wants to escape. Since they're handcuffed together, she brings him along. Out on the lam together they become attached. They go to a blacksmith to get their cuffs removed, but when Gina is own her own she has nothing to go back to, whereas Bart has a family. When found, Gina confesses it was just her that broke out so Bart is free to return to his family. We knew that the writes would exploit this plot sooner and later just we didnt know how good it would be. Well dont fret, this was a funny episode. Homer as a prison guard was hilarious! A must see to say the least!
