Bart is caught shop-lifting a video game from a store. He is barred from the store, but when Marge visits it with Bart in tow, the gung-ho store detective tells her of her son's misdemeanor and they grow apart. Eventually, Bart gives her a Christmas present, which she fears he has stolen, but when she discovers it is a framed picture of himself paid for in full, she is overjoyed, and gives him a video game, though sadly it is a golf instruction video, and not the game he desperately wanted.

[Jabbing his finger in Bart's chest
I thought I told you, don't return for busted merchandise.
What are you doing to my son?
I'm afraid your son broke the 11th Commandment: Thou shalt not steal.
That's crazy. Bart's not a shoplifter, he's just a little boy.
Oh, sure, now he's just a little boy stealing little toys. But someday, he'll be a grown man stealing stadiums and - and quarries.
My son may not be perfect, but I know in my heart he's not a shoplifter.
