* BigNo: Carl does one after Homer, Lenny and Moe steal the lost page of the saga from him. It was probably for the best anyway since the page doesn't make the Carlsons out to be the brave warriors that Carl expects they were. Instead, it shows they were even worse than he thought.


Added DiffLines:
