** In one episode, the family discovers that Lisa needs braces. After she's initially offered practically invisible ones, the dentist finds out the Simpsons don't have a dental plan anymore (thanks to Mr. Burns) and heads straight for the type of obtrusive orthodontic headgear known only to cartoon nerds complete with the admonition, "These predate stainless steel, so you can't get them wet." The storyline [[ButtMonkey played Lisa's humiliation for all it was worth]], from Bart calling her a "freak" to Lisa herself reenacting Jack Napier's discovery that he has become the Joker ("The mirror!...THE MIRROR!") in the 1989 ''Film/{{Batman}}'' - as if you didn't feel sorry enough for her already. Strangely, in this episode, Lisa's braces get less and less obtrusive in every scene in which she appears. At first, she can't even conceal them by closing her mouth, but later she can, and eventually they're only slightly more noticeable than ordinary braces.

* Not so common anymore, since the utility of the headgear (to pull the teeth outward) has been largely supplanted by in-mouth mechanisms like the expander, which can push from behind the teeth. New technology, combined with new techniques geared towards prevention as much as repair, means the intense headgear is rapidly heading towards obsolescence.
