Storyline

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.

Trivia

Milhouse brags that the game, "Bonestorm" is impressive and all he has done is enter his name; to which he enters "Thrillhouse," rather than his actual name. But the space for the amount of letters for the name only allows it to read, "Thrillho," eight letters. Meaning his actual name, Milhouse could ironically be spelled on the game without any letters missing. See more »

Quotes

Bart Simpson: Buy me "Bonestorm" or go to hell!
Marge Simpson: Bart!
Homer Simpson: Young man, in this house, we use a little word called "please".
Bart Simpson: It's the coolest video game ever!
Marge Simpson: I'm sorry, honey, but those games cost up to and including $70. And they're violent, and they distract you from your schoolwork.
Bart Simpson: Those are all good points, but the problem is, they don't result in me getting the game.
Homer Simpson: I know how you feel, Bart. When I was your age, I wanted an electric football game more than anything in the world. And my parents bought it ...

It's a Christmas Episode!

SPOILERS

As you know, I'm commenting on only Holiday movies until the end of the year. Yes, I commented on the Wizard of Oz, but I'm back to commenting on Holiday movies. Anyway, this is a very, very touching Simpson Christmas episode. This is the second Christmas episode. It's a great Marge and Bart episode. It's actually one of the few Marge and Bart episodes. It is a fantastic episode and very touching, and it's like that until the very end with the putting video game.

There is a new super cool video game out called Bonestorm and Bart wants it. After some bullies say that shoplifting is cool, Bart shoplifts the game. He is caught by a security guard. He leaves a message on the Simpson phone that says Bart tried to shoplift the video game. He also tells Bart that if he ever comes into his store again he will be arrested. Unluckily for Bart, the family is getting Christmas photos at the store. When he gets his photo taken, he is yanked off by the security guard. Marge doubts that Bart shoplifted, then she is heartbroken when she sees a surveillance tape. She stops trusting Bart and leaving Bart out of activities. Then Bart goes back into the store and gets his photo taken again. He gives it to Marge. She is very happy and she gives Bart a video game. It's a golf game. The episode ends with Bart playing the golf game.

Overall, this is a fantastic touching episode. It is a great and very rare Marge and Bart episode. Although, it starts out as a Bart episode, it quickly turns into a Marge and Bart episode. The only problem I have about this episode is that it's a little cheesy and corny at times. The music in this episode is fantastic and sad. Also, the very end is so very funny. This is a great Christmas episode of the Simpsons.

9/10
