Storyline

The laughing kid of the school kids' car pool, Michael, is all of a sudden feared by everyone when it comes out that he is the son of local mob boss (or, as he says, "garbage businessman") Fat Tony. Everyone but Lisa. She tries to get to know him and finds out all he really wants to do is becoming a chef, cooking being his greatest passion. When Fat Tony is severely hurt by a whacking attempt, carried out by a rival mob considering him vulnerable for his son won't take revenge in case of his death, Michael doesn't feel like he can take over the family business. So Homer and Bart, feeling responsible for the new friends of the family, offer to take over while Fat Tony is recovering. Written by jaggermick66

A definite must see for all Simpsons Fans.

It's funny, entertaining, believable, and the guest appearances are awesome.

Although I will not say what the opening couch gag is, i will say that it is one that many of you will prefer to see. I do not know if Lisa has played a repeated tune though.

The Storyline is Lisa is friendly to Fat Tony's son. As a sign of appreciation tony invites the Family over for dinner. As soon as Michael says he'd rather be a chef than take over his dad's role in the Mafia, Tony is shot by a rival family member. over the family business. Fat Tony's key assistants ask Michael to be the new king of the Mafia, but after he objects, Homer hits the plate and takes the mob on a major Spree.

This is an episode you do not want to miss.
