Storyline

After yet another prank from Bart, involving flooding the gym, principal Skinner talks to Homer and Marge and advices them to make Bart take a new behavior drug, called Focusyn. At first Bart doesn't want to take the drug, but pretty soon he doesn't mind and it actually seems to work: Bart stops playing pranks, actually pays attention in class and reads in his spare time. Good times don't last and Bart starts behaving very strange and paranoid. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>
