Storyline

Whilst Homer goes into business marketing ultra-safe baby toys and making enemies amongst other manufacturers, Lisa experiences bullying from violent new classmate Francine. Working out the scientific reason for Francine's actions Lisa discovers that she is reacting to poindextrose, a pheromone given off by the body, and that, by masking its smell with salad cream, she can render the bully harmless.
