Another anthology episode this time, centered on the consequences of taking revenge.

!! Tropes:

* AlternateAesopInterpretation: [[{{In-universe}} Homer insists]] that the ''real'' moral of Lisa's story[[note]] which was about how taking revenge makes a person as bad as those who hurt them[[/note]] was to never put down your weapon.
* TheChosenOne: Milhouse is chosen to use the Getbackinator because he's the only nerd with hand-eye coordination.
* ClarkKenting: When revealing himself, the Count must remove his fake dot from his face.
* CompositeCharacter: In Marge's version of ''Literature/TheCountOfMonteCristo'', Moe is a composite of the antagonist who wants Edmond Dantès' financial success and the antagonist who wants Dantès' love interest.
* {{Irony}}:
** Homer is a fan of ''The Count of Monte Cristo'' but doesn't pay attention when Marge retells the story to show why revenge is a bad thing.
** Marge and Lisa try to talk Homer out of taking revenge with their stories, but he doesn't listen. Bart ''encourages'' revenge with his story, but Homer makes up with the Rich Texan by the time Bart's finished.
* LegacyCharacter: Averted. In the third story, Bart is trained by the Crimson Cockatoo and offered a chance to replace him but decides to become Bartman instead.
* NotSoDifferent: Homer ultimately decides against taking revenge on the Rich Texan... because, as he learns, they both come from Connecticut.
* PrecrimeArrest: Milhouse, while on his RoaringRampageOfRevenge, decides to bully a new student (it's his first day at Springfield Elementary) by justifying it as "prevenge".
* SameSexTriplets: Marge's story features three Moe-faced Maggies.
* SelfServingMemory: Homer intends to pin the blame on attaking the Rich Texan on Maggie if he gets caught, "just like the time [he] [[Recap/TheSimpsonsWhoShotMrBurns shot Mr. Burns]]".
* SuperheroEpisode: The ''Bartman Begins'' segment.
* TakeThat: Homer says that Lisa's story was his favorite, because it had what he likes in a story: an ending.
** The credits is dedicated to everyone who died in the Franchise/StarWars films... which includes this:
--->Unfortunately, [[{{In-universe}} not]] [[TheScrappy Jar Jar Binks]]
* TimedMission: In essence, this is what the wraparound story is: Homer is chasing after the Rich Texan, intending to beat him up with a baseball bat [[DisproportionateRetribution because he cut Homer off on the highway]]. Marge, Lisa, and Bart (respectively) try to talk Homer out of it with stories before Homer manages to catch up and follow through with his plan.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Milhouse after using the Getbackinator.
* YouKilledMyFather: In Bart's story, the protagonist wants to avenge his deceased parents.
