      Bart’s last baby tooth is loose, and he’s ready to cash out his earnings from the Tooth Fairy. When he finds a receipt to the United Way instead of his money, Marge explains that the Tooth Fairy probably thought that since his last baby tooth came out, he was no longer a child and deserved an adult gift. Upset by the realization that he is no longer a kid, Bart attempts to return to his childhood by riding the toy airplane outside the supermarket.

      When that doesn’t work, he decides to rid himself of his childhood toys. Lisa sees Bart depressed and suggests that he express himself through writing.

      Bart


      decides to express his cynicism by expressing his thoughts through his t-shirt. Because they are such a big hit with the people at school, he decides to go into business and sell his attitude.

      Since he was unable to pay protection to both Nelson and Chief Wiggum, Lisa tells Bart to go legit and find a retailer at the expo that week. When his stand is destroyed by Krusty the Clown’s flashier display, Bart leaves the expo and is run over by Goose Gladwell.

      Goose Gladwell owns 20 stores in 30 states and wants to sell the shirts in most of them. The shirts are great sellers, and Bart becomes ...


      • the main income provider for the Simpsons.

        Now that Bart can provide for the family, Homer decides to retire early. When he realizes how pathetic and dependent he’s become, he decides that he must have a use.

        A documentary on lions suggests that he must nurture the young and thus spends time with Lisa. He helps her with her science fair project and builds and actual working model.

        When Marge senses how dangerous the reactor is, she tells Homer to get rid of it. Meanwhile, Goose has sold his business to the Disney Company, and his lawyers have made it so that he does not have to pay Bart

        anything.

        When Homer runs into an upset Bart outside the store, he decides it’s time to regain his title as alpha male. He threatens Goose that he will detonate the reactor and take out all of Springfield if he doesn’t give Bart what he deserves.

        Goose concedes, and the Springfield household returns to its original hierarchy. Though many may view Homer as a bad father, this is another episode that only proves that Homer usually has the best intentions and is there when needed the most; it’s another great episode in the Simpsons saga.

        Only the Simpsons can combine a Willy Wonka look-a-like, a Robert Frost poem, and a Viking funeral all into one episode.
