"My Sister, My Sitter" is one of the best episodes revolving around Bart's foolishness and Lisa's determination.
5 June 2011 | by (Planet Namek) – See all my reviews

Lisa begins to babysit systematically for numerous people, including Flanders and Dr. Hibbert. She gradually wins respect from the town for her responsibility at her age. As a result, Marge and Homer leave Bart under her babysitting care. They leave the house for the night and Bart is annoyed to be under her command. And so, Bart pulls off numerous moronic acts to annoy the life out of Lisa for no reason. For one, Bart calls over many people... and orders lots of things under their address. All these deliveries and guests arrive on time... pretty much at the same time... and Lisa gets annoyed at Bart. Bart runs around like an imbecile and falls down the stairs... breaking his arm in the process... he's proud of this because he can blame it on Lisa's babysitting. He then proceeds to lock himself in his room and bang his head on the door to hurt himself worse. Soon, he is knocked out as a result of his own stupidity of self-pain infliction. Lisa finds a way into his room and drags him out onto a wheelbarrow. Lisa tries to get him to a hospital... but they slip and fall down a muddy hill... where many onlookers blame Lisa for Bart's condition. Later, Bart gets treated for injuries... and Lisa still gets calls from people to babysit for them... because they don't seem to care about what happened. Very vivid and well-written episode. Lovely how it all concludes... with the truth behind how badly some people need babysitting.
