Added DiffLines:

* ShameIfSomethingHappened: While trying to get Principal Skinner to show him Lisa's permanent record, Dexter Colt observes, "These are some nice-looking papers on your desk. It would be a shame if somebody shuffled them." Skinner, immediately knowing what Colt intends to do, calls his bluff, but Colt goes ahead and shuffles them anyway. Skinner points out he could easily put the papers back in their original order, and Colt promptly grabs a stapler and staples the disorganized papers together.

Added DiffLines:

* EpicFail: Homer knows ''nothing'' about Lisa, according to the western video storybook he made for her. He believes that her favorite food is Chicken [=McNuggets=] knowing full well that she's a vegetarian and has been for some time, her favorite "book" is magazines and her best friend is Maggie, a voiceless baby. Moreso, his other gift for her is a turkey, he ''falls asleep while recording the video'' and had to be woken up by Bart and [[UpToEleven even the picture he chose for Lisa isn't a good one]] (she looks like she's going to throw up.)


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: While disguising himself, Homer uses shoe polish to give himself a full head of hair in a bouffant, Elvis-esque style...which, of course, is supported by ''nothing'' and slides right off of his head.
