Lisa Simpson: Bart, this isn't a photograph. I'm not going to paint you just because...

Very good episode,with another one of Homers former jobs on the list,
15 August 2011 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Homer Scissorhands is a great Simpsons episode,good storyline and side story,and another great one of Homers former jobs,as many Simpsons fans like me would know,Homer has had a load of jobs but he always ends up going back to his main job in the end,working for Mr Burns in Sector 7G at the Nuclear Power Plant.

While Patty is asleep Bart and Lisa accidentally get paint on her hair, Homer trys to cut off the hair with the paint over it,the cut he gives her turns out really well and Homer gets really popular with his skill for cutting hair and decides to open up his own hair salon,but he eventually grows tired of all the girls talking to him while he does there hair.

Meanwhile,after understanding that Lisa will never fall for him,Milhouse goes out with a girl in another year,Lisa grows jealous but also suspicious of why a popular girl like that would be interested in a guy like Milhouse,so Lisa decides to investigate.
