** He has the money, but uses it instead to buy Krusty burgers for the family.
*** He most likely had enough leftover to do that.
** He does give Lisa some Thai soup when she goes to the Redwood, so apparently he still had the job at that point.

* HalfwayPlotSwitch: The plot of Bart getting a job to earn money for a new video game console takes a backseat once the Simpsons discover Dirt First on the roof of Krusty Burger. It gets two more acknowledgements (the Thai restauranter bidding for logging rights on the redwood, and Bart's care package), but that's it.

Lisa's crush on an environmentalist (voiced by Joshua Jackson, who was on ''Dawson's Creek'' at the time) leads her to camp out on Springfield's tallest tree in protest over plans to have it felled. Meanwhile, Bart gets a job as a menu delivery boy for a Thai restaurant so he can raise money for a new video game system.
