Episode #27: The Simpsons (2x7): ‘Bart vs Thanksgiving’

Original Airdate: November 22, 1990

Summary: The Simpson family Thanksgiving is ruined after Bart feels he has been wrongly punished and decides to run away.

  • Homer: Alright Bart, that’s it! Go to your room! Now!
    Bart: Okay, I’ll take some white meat and some stuffing to go and send in the pumpkin pie in about twenty minutes.
  • Homer: Come on, dad. Let’s go.
    : What’s your hurry?
    Homer: This place is depressing.
    Grandpa: Hey, I live here.
    Homer: I’m sure it’s a blast once you get used to it.
  • Marge: Mom, you made it! How are you?
    Jacqueline: I have laryngitis. It hurts to talk, so I’ll just say one thing: You never do anything right.
  • Grandpa: Let’s go. If I’m not back at the home by nine they declare me legally dead and collect my insurance.
