* In "Lost Verizon" from Season 20, Bart gets a mobile phone, and Marge (under advice of Denis Leary, the phone's owner) activates its GPS tracker, allowing her to keep track of Bart and [[MyBelovedSmother stopping him from doing anything she doesn't like]]. Lisa tells Bart what has been going on, and Bart manages to take the tracker out and tie it to a bird. Suddenly, Marge begins to see Bart moving at high speeds.speeds impossible for a child to achieve (how did it work without being connected to a battery, anyway?).\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Marge to figure out that Bart has found the tracker.tracker and done something with it.\\

'''Instead:''' All they do is stand there and watch the kids fight. Grampa was even getting ''excited'' watching it!\\
'''As a result:''' Bart throws the centerpiece into the fire. Homer and Marge do step in, but only after it was too late to save the centerpiece. And judging from Bart's blink-and-you'll-miss-it SlasherSmile, it was no accident. Yes, the adults' ineptitude had led to ''malicious intent''.
