The end of the school year, and an empty yearbook causes Lisa to contemplate her lack of popularity. When Ned Flanders is summoned for jury duty and offers Homer a chance to stay at his beach house, Lisa sees this as the opportunity to reinvent herself as a slacker in the hope of gaining friends, which proves to be far more successful than she could possibly imagine --- but not if Bart has any say in the matter.
