Storyline

Shelbyville kids hijack Springfield's sacred lemon tree after being pelted with lemons, and Bart leads a guerrilla war against them (I say a war, but it's nowhere near violent.) They find out that the tree is in "the impenetrable fortress of suburbia"- a car impound lot, owned by the leader's (Shelby's) dad. Homer and the parents of the kids find them and team up with them to get the tree back. But how are they gonna get it from a car impound lot? Written by movieguy3

Trivia

The title refers to Helen of Troy of Greek mythology. She was the daughter of Zeus (King of the Gods), and Leda (wife of King Tyndareus of Sparta). Her abduction by Paris brought about the Trojan War between the city of Troy by the Achaeans (Greeks). Helen was described as having "the face that launched a thousand ships." The allusion to the Trojan War is further reinforced when after using the illegally parked RV to sneak into the impound lot, Homer says "[n]o one in history has ever done anything this clever."- a reference to the Greeks who used the Trojan horse to sneak into Troy.

To The Lemon Tree
28 May 2018 | by Gerardrobertson61See all my reviews

Great episode, allowing us to see a bit more of Shelbyville and the people that live there. Some great one liners, good back story and all in all, one of the better Season 6 episodes.
