Storyline

Bart is caught shop-lifting a video game from a store. He is barred from the store, but when Marge visits it with Bart in tow, the gung-ho store detective tells her of her son's misdemeanor and they grow apart. Eventually, Bart gives her a Christmas present, which she fears he has stolen, but when she discovers it is a framed picture of himself paid for in full, she is overjoyed, and gives him a video game, though sadly it is a golf instruction video, and not the game he desperately wanted.
