* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Bart's initial purpose for switching tests was to get back at class snitch Martin, though the consequences this has on him are never revealed. The original script included a scene where Dr. Pryor talks to Martin's parents about his failing the IQ test and needing to go to a school for mentally retarded kids, which Jon Vitti (the episode's writer) probably cut out over thinking the censors will object to this scene.
