The family reads stories from a long overdue library book. First, Homer (Odysseus) struggles to find his way home after the Trojan War. Next, Lisa (Joan Of Arc) leads the French army after hearing the voice of God. Finally, Bart (Hamlet) avenges the murder of his father.

In the scene where Ophelia goes crazy and ultimately jumps out of the window, she sings "Hey non nony, nony, hey nony", which is a direct quote from Hamlet (IV/5). See more
Hamlet (Bart) utters a line to himself that is supposedly unheard by other characters and refers to it as a "soliloquy." However, the other characters are on stage at the same time. This would make the line an "aside," and not a soliloquy. (A soliloquy is an extended monologue done with the character on stage alone.) See more
