  8. “Funeral for a Fiend” – A night at a rib restaurant turns into yet another plot for Sideshow Bob to kill The Simpson family, but the whole scheme turns into a family affair when Bart kills his mortal enemy by throwing away his nitroglycerine (which Sideshow Bob needs for his heart) and the rest of the Terwiligers go after Bart for killing Bob.

However, all the media attention and similar-sounding politicians wear on the townspeople’s nerves, so they elect Ralph Wiggum to be the 2008 Presidential candidate as a joke—until Ralph reveals that he wants to be President, so he can bring peace in these divided times. Guest Stars: Jon Stewart and Dan Rather.
  11. “That ’90s Show” – After discovering Marge’s diploma, Homer recounts the time he gave up his dreams of being a musician just to put Marge through college—until Marge breaks Homer’s heart and falls for her professor. Guest Stars: Kurt Loder and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
  12. “Love, Springfieldian Style” – On Valentine’s Day, Homer and Marge get stuck in a Tunnel of Love ride after Bart turns the water into Jell-O. To pass the time, the family tells stories of famous couples: Bonnie and Clyde (Homer and Marge cut a path of crime through 1930s Springfield by robbing banks), Lady and the Tramp (Homer and Marge again; this time, as the eponymous dogs from the Disney movie), and Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen (Nelson and Lisa are punk rockers in love and addicted to chocolate).
  13. “The Debarted” – Bart begins to suspect a rat when all of his pranks backfire—and might have something to do with his new friend, Donny. Meanwhile, Homer grows attached to his rental car, which he gets to drive for a week while his old car gets repaired. Guest Stars: Topher Grace and Terry Gross.
  14. “Dial “N” for Nerder” – Bart and Lisa’s prank on Martin Prince goes too far and they worry that they may be implicated in his death by the police (and Nelson, who becomes an amateur sleuth).

  15. “Smoke on the Daughter” – Lisa is accepted into a ballet school run by jazz dancer Chazz Busby, and discovers that her dancing improves whenever she is around cigarette smoke. Meanwhile, Homer shows Bart his secret beef jerky project, which has been taken over by raccoons.
  16. “Papa Don’t Leech” – When Mayor Quimby launches a campaign to shake down anyone who has not paid taxes in years, Lurleen Lumpkin (the country singer who tried to seduce Homer from the season three episode “Colonel Homer”) hides out at the Simpson house, which does not sit well with Marge (who still cannot forgive her for almost stealing her husband). Guest Stars: Beverly D’Angelo and The Dixie Chicks.
  17. “Apocalypse Cow” – Bart joins the 4-H Club and befriends a cow named Lou, but when Lou is set to be sent to slaughter, Bart gives Lou to a country girl named Mary—whom he now must marry after finding out that giving a cow to a country girl is considered a marriage proposal in hillbilly tradition. Guest Star: Zooey Deschanel.
  18. “Any Given Sundance” – The Simpsons are going to Utah for the Sundance Film Festival after Lisa’s short film on her dysfunctional family life becomes a rave with everyone—except for the Simpson family. Guest Star: Jim Jarmusch and John C. Reilly.
  19. “Mona Leaves-a” – Mona Simpson, Homer’s ’60s radical mother, returns, vowing that her days of protesting are over, but Homer will not accept.
