Storyline

Seizing on a depressed Moe as the subject of her school project Fascinating Springfielders,Lisa unlocks his interest in poetry and,largely through her efforts as opposed to his,gets him accepted as a bright new literary talent,accompanying him to a writers' convention where his poetry is feted by top authors. Unfortunately he is all too happy to take sole credit for the work though he eventually relents and makes a public apology to Lisa - although by this time Homer has planned to pour treacle on him in revenge.

overall,the best of season 18
3 December 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

well the whole story of it is Lisa is looking for people to talk about at her show and tell and she chooses Moe after he becomes upset after homer forgot to go on Moes birthday fishing trip.Lisa finds notes in his pockets which she finds moving and profound.So she pieces the notes together to make a great poem.Lisa sends it to a poetry magazine and it gets front cover.So,Moe,Lisa and the Simpsons go to a book festival and Moe betrays Lisa by saying he did everything himself!Lisa feels very betrayed and comes out with sad and hilarious results!!!I really thought this was genuinely hilarious and touching!it had some really great jokes and moments of betrayal.It think its the best episode of the season.I really enjoyed it!
