Recap / The Simpsons S 20 E 17 The Good The Sad And The Drugly

Lisa is put on anti-depressants after reading Internet reports that Springfield will be a barren wasteland in 50 years. Meanwhile, Bart and Milhouse's friendship is, once again, strained, thanks to a girl named Jenny.


  • Bait-and-Switch: At the end, Bart is seen offering someone flowers and asking for forgiveness. He was talking to Milhouse.
  • Hope Spot: After Bart reveals to Jenny about the lies, it looks like she is going to forgive Bart as she smiles...only to frown and dump Bart.
  • Humiliation Conga: In additional to being exposed as the "Ay, Carumba" kid by Milhouse before Jenny, Bart is seen crying back home after she dumps him.
  • Mushroom Samba: Lisa starts seeing smiley faces everywhere once she's on the pills. It reaches the point where Marge catches Lisa almost ready to make out with an electric fan.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Homer suspects Milhouse is "El Barto".
  • Take That!: To Shrek the Third. Apu promotes a Shrek Squishie contest, where if you answer the trivia correctly, you get a 10% discount off any Shrek DVD, except the first two films.
