Storyline

A new girl in class Samantha Stanky (Kimmy Robertson of The Last American Virgin (1982)) comes between Bart Simpson (Nancy Cartwright) and Milhouse (Pamela Hayden) when Milhouse falls for her and starts to ignore Bart. Bart snitches on the couple to Samantha's father, who has her sent to a convent school, where Milhouse and Bart visit and she confesses to still having feelings for Milhouse. The boys get back together again whilst Homer increases his word power after receiving a vocabulary building subliminal tape and not the weight loss tape expected. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

The song sung by the nuns at the all-girls school is "Dominique" by "Jeannine Deckers of Belgium, better known as Soeur Sourire or The Singing Nun. It is remembered chiefly for its refrain, which goes:

Domi-nique -nique -nique s'en allait tout simplement, Routier, pauvre et chantant. En tous chemins, en tous lieux, Il ne parle que du Bon Dieu, Il ne parle que du Bon Dieu.

A literal English translation is:

Domi-nique -nique -nique went about simply, a poor singing traveller. On every road, in every place, he talks only of the Good Lord, he talks only of the Good Lord. See more »

Finding Your First True Love!
22 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the twenty-fourth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is a really good one as it tackles the part of finding your first love during your pre-teen years. While it's romance, this doesn't get overly sappy so I'm happy for that. It's also funny thanks to the very great jokes including Homer becoming articulate.

In this episode, "Bart's Friend Falls in Love," a girl named Samantha moves into Bart's class and his best friend, Milhouse falls in love with her. Bart thinks that will end their friendship, so he tries to stop their relationship. Meanwhile, Homer wants to lose weight so he orders a program to help him, but instead he only broadens his vocabulary while still putting on the pounds.

Overall, this is a great episode exploring pre-teen love. However strong the romance plot was, I did think the subplot involving Homer was even funnier. It was nice to see what Homer would be like with even a slither of intelligence. I rate this episode 9/10.
