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>

Trivia

Bart is shown reading a book called 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Pre-Teens' and gives a copy of 'Chicken Soup for the Loser' to Homer. These are plays on the real books 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' and 'Chicken Soup for the Soul' (both of which produced multiple sequels and spin-offs). See more »
