Add Full Plot
Bart flushes a cherry bomb at school, nearly injuring Principal Skinner's mother, Agnes, in the process. An exasperated Skinner tells Homer and Marge that since expulsion would not do Bart any good, he's placing him in a foreign-exchange student program. Bart is sent to France, where his host family are unethical winemakers who plan to employ him as a slave.
Did You Know?
The two evil French wine makers, Cesar and Ugolin, are named after the two villains of the classic French films "Jean de Florette" (1986) and "Manon of the Spring" (1986). See more
During the entire scene in which Principal Skinner discusses the student exchange program with Marge and Homer, the house layout is incorrect. The scene takes place in the living room and in the background, the dining room and the family room have switched places with each other. Thus making the front door and the back door seem to be on the same side of the house, which is incorrect. See more
Homer, I'd love a glass of that wine Bart brought us.
Sorry, Marge. Some wiseguy stuck a cork in the bottle.
Oh, mon pere. Quel boufou!
[translated, "My father. What a buffoon!"
You hear that, Marge? My boy speaks French!
