When a 1-900 football hotline and other resources don't work out, a desperate Homer asks Lisa for whom she thinks will win the next game. Lisa's pick turns out to be right, and Homer invites her to spend time with her on the next Sunday. Lisa's prognostic skills help Homer win a fortune from Moe in a clandestine betting pool (which Moe runs under Chief Wiggum's nose), but soon "Daddy-Daughter Day" may come to an end with Super Bowl Sunday, especially when Homer thoughtlessly plans a bowling outing with Barney on the Sunday after the Super Bowl. Lisa is crushed (and Marge outraged) to learn that Homer only created "Daddy-Daughter Day" to help him gamble, and a remorseful Homer tries to beg Lisa for forgiveness any way he can. Lisa makes the prediction that if Washington were to win the Super Bowl, she'd ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_527323@yahoo.com>

Solid Episode!
15 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fourteenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is a pretty effective episode. Lisa is my least favorite Simpsons character and I'm generally not a fan of episodes focused on her. But there is no denying how charming this episode is. This episode focuses on the father-daughter relationship and it also mocks gambling and football.

In this episode, "Lisa the Greek," Lisa decides to take an interest in football in order to spend more time with Homer. When Homer realizes she can accurately predict the outcome of the games, he decides to use her to make a profit. But once Lisa realizes this, she decides not to like her father anymore.

Overall, this is an entertaining episode and I liked how football was spoofed. There is a emotional core here when we see how Homer hurts his daughter, then tries to repair the damage. A solid episode in a great season. I rate this episode 9/10.
