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.

Great episode. Can't help but thinking what really was in the written letter. The content is just the same as what homer reads, except for the last line. That one is 'I guess happiness is just for' with the next line cut away by the edge. Yet, Homer says something totally else. This episode is one of my favourites, certainly if you only consider those of season 18. It's very emotional, or at least, for me it is. The moment Lisa thinks of interviewing Moe almost made me drop a tear. Maybe, when I'm older, I won't appreciate the third-age jokes in the simpsons, but for now, I lóve them, and the grim-reaper vs Abe Simpson is one of the best they've ever made. That's one of the reasons that I love this episode.
