Homer and Bart are being pursued by an angry mob through the streets of Springfield, baying for their blood. It turns out that Bart, hoping to impress the town bullies, sawed the head of the statue of town founder Jedediah Springfield. But when he discovered how appalled they were to find the head gone, enlisted Homer's help in replacing it. After he apologizes to the crowd, they forgive him. Written by
