Recap / The Simpsons S 19 E 13 The Debarted

Bart suspects a rat in his circle of friends when all of his pranks backfire. Meanwhile, Homer grows attached to his rental car, which he gets to drive for a week while his old car gets repaired.


  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: When Bart reunited Nelson, Milhouse and Donny to talk about the rat, his comments suggested he figured out Donny was the one but he suspected Milhouse.
  • Chekhov's Gun: Bart's Blue Vines.
  • Disproportionate Retribution/Jerkass: Skinner and Chalmers want to send Bart to the toughest juvenile detention facility they can just for a few mostly harmless pranks that Bart pulls and Skinner laughs when he causes Bart to be manipulated.
  • The Mole
  • Too Dumb to Live: Given that Donny was new to the organization, it should have been obvious that Donny was The Mole, but Bart somehow instantly assumed it was Milhouse.
