Lisa Simpson: Maybe competitive eating isn't the sport for you.
Lucas Bortner: It's not just a sport. It's my life.
Lisa Simpson: I mean, maybe we haven't found the right food for you. How about ice cream?
Lucas Bortner: Sure. I can pound that cream.

Funny with a Great Guest Star,
13 August 2014 | by FilmBuff1994See all my reviews

Luca$ is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes.I really enjoyed Zach Galifanakis's guest voice in this episode,they made great use of his comedic voice and I didn't feel like he was overused or underused.As is the case with several Simpsons episodes,I preferred the side story to the main storyline,I really liked seeing Bart protect Snake from the law and it easily could have been a full episode,my favourite scene was definitely the part at the police station.Luca$ is a very enjoyable Simpsons episode that is funny and entertaining.

Marge panics when Lisa starts dating a competitive eater,while Bart befriends local criminal Snake.
