Storyline

The lives of Homer, Lisa and Bart have been split up in a less-than-ordinary day, and as each of their problems unfold, their lives intertwine on a road of chaos and mayhem all over Springfield. Homer's thumb is accidentally sliced off, and he tries to find a way to the hospital; Lisa must find a way to get to the Science fair at school; and Bart and Milhouse discover more than just fireworks in a secret cave...

one of my all-time favorite simpsons episodes !
18 November 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

to me, a long lasting simpsons veteran, this clip has everything a proper simpsons episode ought to have. the plot is wonderfully crazy and has ingenious ideas, for example lingo, the grammar robot. the splitting up into 3 parts works just fine and gives this episode its unique sign, and somehow this is creating some kind of speed, which makes the story seem tight and enjoyable. almost all the good characters (with a few exceptions) are involved in it, and the jokes are unique and delightful. i can recommend this episode to everyone really, whether you are a simpsons addict, or a greenhorn, this one will make you laugh your a** of :).

10/10, and nothing else
