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. Written by

Did You Know?
Agnes Skinner is actually a nice old lady in this episode. This was before the creators could establish her as a mean woman. The DVD commentary justifies this change by stating that Bart's cherry-bomb prank is what turned Agnes Skinner cruel and bitter. 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
So, basically I met one nice French person.
