* {{Heaven}}: Discussed in Bart's Sunday school class. Bart stumps the teacher by asking her who/what will be there.
--> '''Bart''': Um, ma'am, what if you're a really good person, but you're in a really, really bad fight and your leg gets gangrene, and it has to be amputated. Will it be waiting for you in heaven?\\
'''Teacher''': For the last time, Bart, yes!\\
''(later...)''\\
'''Teacher''': ''(exasperated)'' The ventriloquist goes to Heaven, but the dummy doesn't. ''(Bart raises his hand)'' Bart?\\
'''Bart''': What about a robot with a human brain?\\
'''Teacher''': ''(frazzled)'' I don't know! All these questions; is a little blind faith too much to ask?!


Added DiffLines:

* LikeFatherLikeSon: Marge takes away Bart's headphones before heading into church. When she's not looking, Homer swipes the headphones for himself and listens to them in church.
