Among other authors, Krusty is signing books and one of the kids waiting in line is a girl named Sophie, who tells Krusty she's his daughter! A reluctant Krusty promises to take her to the beach where he realizes he's a lousy father and turns to Homer for some parental advice. The Simpsons help Krusty and he's getting a better dad. However, at a poker game, Krusty has a very good hand but no money and uses Sophie's violin as stake... Written by

Did You Know?
Originally, the episode was very different. It would have begun with the Simpsons meeting a teenage girl at the book fair, who takes an interest in them and follows them home. It's revealed that she's Homer's illegitimate daughter (with an old girlfriend) and Bart, Lisa and Maggie's half-sister. The episode would have been about the ramifications of this. Mike Scully, however, thought that the episode would be too dark and suggested that Krusty be the one with an illegitimate child. See more
Miss Tan, I loved The Joy Luck Club. You really showed me how the mother-daughter bond could survive adversity.
No, no, that's not what I meant at all. I can't believe how wrong you got it. Just sit down, I'm embarrassed for both of us.
