Homer makes his own beef jerky in the basement,only for it to be stolen by raccoons. Marge,meanwhile,wants to fulfill her childhood dream of being a ballerina and goes with Lisa to the Chazz Buzby dance academy. She is turned down but Chazz notices that Lisa has the right posture for a dancer. Unfortunately she can only dance well after inhaling the other ballerinas' cigarette smoke. Homer is appalled and has the raccoons steal all the dancers' cigarettes. At a performance of 'Sleeping Beauty' all the dancers are rubbish when deprived of their smokes and Lisa delivers a diatribe from the stage against something which is unhealthy and stunts the growth of American children - ballet.

When Homer sends the raccoon through the air vent to steal the cigarettes, in different shots the vent's metal cover changes from open, closed or not there at all, without being touched. See more
