First Aired - 11/24/1996

While Lisa and Marge spend the day cleaning rocks after Captain [=MacCallister=] runs his ship aground ''a la'' the ''Exxon Valdez'' incident in 1989, Bart gets in trouble for breaking the gargoyle of an old house, and the owner wants Bart to work for her to pay for it -- by making him her right-hand man for her burlesque house.

----
!!Tropes:
* AllMenArePerverts: It might be easier to list who hasn't been going to the Maison Derrière.
-->"Oh, I'm afraid this problem goes far beyond Eugene and Rusty."
** During the vote to close the place:
--->'''Jasper:''' Are they talkin' about the bordello?\\
'''Abe:''' No, the burlesque house! Now shut up!
* [[BrokenGlassPenalty Broken Gargoyle Penalty]]
* EverythingHasRhythm: The musical number 'We Keep The Spring in Springfield' includes such effects as Moe banging bin lids together, someone 'boing'ing Bumblebee Man's antenna and Lenny smacking someone in the head (accidentally) with a sledgehammer.
* HypocriticalHumor and AesopAmnesia: Homer drooling over Princess Kashmir (the stripper/belly dancer from "Homer's Night Out") in front of Bart, seasons after Homer learned his lesson on not objectifying women.
* {{Jerkass}}: Marge is at her worst pre-{{Flanderization}} here, forcing her views on the town of Springfield because she has a problem with the house existing.
* [[NeverTrustATrailer Never Trust a Promo]]: A lot of TV and radio promos for this episode played up the sex angle of this episode. Commercials that aired during prime-time claimed that Springfield would be rocked by a sex scandal, and showed Marge's incriminating pictures of people leaving the Maison Derriere (which was correct, only it didn't go that far)[[note]]Compare with the ads that aired during times when kids would be watching cartoons, where they just played up the fact that Homer and Bart are left to fend for themselves while Marge, Lisa, and Maggie go on a day trip to help clean up an oil spill[[/note]], while a radio station had Homer saying, "I have misplaced my pants," which, out of context, paints a rather risque mental picture of Homer, when really that line was used in the scene of Belle taking Bart back home and Belle finding that Homer is using a grocery bag as a substitute for underwear.
* ShamingTheMob: Homer does this, with a lavish musical number.
* SpontaneousChoreography
* StylisticSuck: Marge's attempt at a counter-song after the "We Put the Spring in Springfield" sequence.
-->'''Marge:''' ''(singing off key)'' Morals and ethics and carnal forbearance...
** Also, Marge's ventriloquist act.
* {{Unishment}}: To give Homer ''some'' credit, he didn't know the house Bart vandalized was really a burlesque house. Of course, he doesn't mind Bart still working there after he finds out.
* TrashOfTheTitans: The floor is so coated in garbage that Homer and Bart make garbage angels.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The producers originally wanted a CelebrityVoiceActor for Belle, but couldn't find anyone good enough (or with a free schedule), so they brought in TressMacNeille.
* WorkOffTheDebt: Bart breaking the gargoyle kicks off the A-plot. At the end, [[spoiler: Marge replaces the club's warm-up comedian after demolishing half the building.]]
