Homer: All right, pie. I'm going to start doing this...

Competition drives a wedge through the Simpsons' household
11 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I dare say, this is one of the best Bart and Lisa episodes from the entire run of The Simpsons. The episode deftly explains and expands on the relationship between the two siblings. From the hilarious lows of indiscriminately punching and kicking the air in an attempt to hurt the other without taking blame for it to the heartwarming highs of remembering their shared history at the end, this episode is a winner.

Homer is an irredeemable jerk in this episode. He escalates, really all but creates, the feud between Bart and Lisa. His role in the episode is a brilliant skewer of parents who put too much emphasis on their children's athletic endeavors.

In the end, Bart and Lisa keep their heads and strengthen their bond as the combustible mob that is the Springfield citizenry explodes over their refusal to cut the other down. A defining moment for Bart and Lisa's relationship, indeed.
