Excellent Episode!
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the eighteenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it's a very good episode and it asks the question, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" Of course, we will get to see the Simpsons answers in this episode. It's pretty funny and we get to see Lisa and Bart become the exact opposite of their usual characters.

In this episode, "Separate Vocations," Bart and Lisa take a career aptitude test at school and Lisa is destined to become a homemaker, thus ruining her music career and Bart is told he was going to be a police officer. Lisa is crushed by the result and becomes a rebellious person, while Bart gets better grades and even becomes hall monitor.

Overall, this is a fantastic episode and it was nice to see what Lisa's and Bart's characters would be like as the total opposite from what us viewers are used to seeing. So this ended up being an interesting episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
