Storyline

Martin's birthday party is predictably dull until nearly all the guests become ill with food poisoning. The only ones not to get sick are Bart (who didn't want to eat the spoiled oysters), and Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel, who fall in love with each other. Bart catches his principal and teacher kissing passionately, but they immediately find out and want to swear him to secrecy. They make him his gofer, making his life miserable at school and calling him at all hours of the night (all for the reward of Milhouse inheriting Bart's poor school record). Bart eventually loses his patience and exposes the Skinner-Krabappel relationship. After rumors - most of them grossly exaggerated - begin running wild through town, Supt.

Eventually, Bart convinces Skinner to stand up for himself and his new ...

The First of Many Principal Skinner and Edna Krabappel Episodes,
2 September 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Grade School Confidential is a great Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes.This episode is the first to revolve around the relationship of Principal Skinner and Edna Krabappel,I always enjoy these episodes but this one is certainly one of the best.There are several hilarious lines from both Skinner and Krabappel,but it was mostly following Bart in this strange situation that I found the funniest.Not the finest but it is another great episode from the eight season,Grade School Confidential is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

The entire town of Springfield goes against Principal Skinner and Edna Krabappel after several student witness them having relations on school grounds.
