An Indian casino manager tells Bart what his future will be in thirty years' time. Whilst Lisa is the American president, Bart is a bum and wannabe musician, hanging out in a beach shack with Ralph Wiggum. Ever envious of Lisa, he causes her unpopularity by revealing that she is about to impose a new tax, but uses his slacker skills to stall matters long enough until she can push it through.

Did You Know?


When Bart gives Lisa advice that saves the U.S. from a major debt crisis, she tells him she'll do anything as President he asks for, and he simply says "Legalize it" and Lisa pauses for a second before smiling and saying "It? Oh, IT...consider it done." The show's producers said they didn't have a specific "it" in mind but the two most likely things Bart wanted were A) the complete decriminalization of marijuana or B) legalization of same-sex marriage.

One of the absolute BEST episodes ever. Tasteless, moron critics laughably embarrass themselves yet again.
14 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my overall favorite and most watched Simpsons episodes ever.

It's beyond worrying (though sadly not all that surprising) when I noticed that some pathetic, loser "professional" reviewer (lol) rated this as the single "worst ever" Simpsons episode..........HUH???

Newsflash moron trolls: This is not only one of the Top 50 BEST Simpsons episodes of all time, it's also the single best "Future-set" Simpsons episode by far too. The only other one that would rank even remotely close is "Lisa's Wedding".

Doofus critics like the complete goon I mentioned above probably thought that godawful Boyhood parody episode was 12 out of 10 stars. Just more beyond clueless idiots. what a surprise! XD

Anyway, 10 out 10 and an all-time classic. Watch it if you have taste in actual quality. You're welcome ; )
