Storyline

Against Marge's wishes, the family stays up for a movie adaptation of "Noah's Ark," which turns out to be a very long (and bombastic) Troy McClure adaptation. The movie runs all night, and a very tired Bart and Lisa head off to school while Homer calls in sick, claiming that his family came down with smallpox. At school, Bart and Lisa are participating in a Model United Nations Club meeting (which doesn't go very well) before leaving for an excursion. During the trip, the children's antics cause an accident; Otto was trying to brake to avoid a steep hill, and when he finally is able to slam on the brakes, the juice from a grapefruit (which had been lodged beneath the brake pedal) squirts into Otto's eyes, blinding him and causing him to steer the bus off a high suspension bridge. The bridge plunges into a river. Otto swims away "for help," but is swept away by a tidal wave; he is later rescued by Chinese fishermen.

Goofs

Homer doesn't fully understand what the internet is, and that it can be accessed by a computer until he reads about it in a book. Yet, earlier on, he somehow had a pop-up add online that catches Comic Book Guy's attention. See more »

Survivor Meets The Simpsons
11 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love episodes of The Simpsons that involve them going on a great adventure and getting lost or at a Mystery Location, it's hard to describe but all I can say is this episode is a great one.

After Otto crashes the School bus into the ocean the Kids of Springfield Elementary must survive on an island, with traitors, Tribal war, a hunt, a Trial, it makes u think of Survivor Simpsons Style.

Off the Island Homer gets inspired to make money off of the internet and gets a visit from Bill Gates!

Filled with great scenes and moments that will stick with you through anything you see with an Island or even a School bus!

A fun, hilarious Episode to watch over and over....
