Great episode , expect for the ending
19 July 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

(warning spoilers) This was another hilarious episode from the shows early years; it deals with Bart skipping school , and winding up being the key witness to an alleged attack on a waiter at a party. Everyone thinks that Mayor Quimbeys partying nephew did; only Bart knows the truth, but that means confessing to skipping school. Overall the episode is really funny, as Bart debates confessing he is meat with several implied consequences(including a story from Marge about a gun crazy uncle, a TV episode featuring the death of a kid who ratted out, and the threat of severe punishment from principal skinner) Ultimately Bart confesses what he really saw; quimby did not beat anybody up, the waiter was a klutz! ultimately the quimbey is freed and Bart is given four months of detention! this is the only part of the episode i had a problem with; it really should have ended with Bart getting punished(ironic cause this is what he feared all along), however we then get an obviously tacked on scene of homer and Marge in bed that adds nothing; neither mention Bart's actions, and it just seems as if the scene was added to increase the running time, other than that a solid episode.
