Shelbyville kids hijack Springfield's sacred lemon tree after being pelted with lemons, and Bart leads a guerrilla war against them (I say a war, but it's nowhere near violent.) They find out that the tree is in "the impenetrable fortress of suburbia"- a car impound lot, owned by the leader's (Shelby's) dad. Homer and the parents of the kids find them and team up with them to get the tree back. But how are they gonna get it from a car impound lot? Written by

That tree's been in Springfield since the time of our forefathers. Give it back or we'll bust in there and take it!
Bust in here and take it? You must be stupider than you look.
Stupider like a fox!
