Recap: The Simpsons S 24 E 10 A Test Before Trying
Thanks to rising energy costs by Mr. Burns, Homer uses a discarded parking meter to make some extra money by planting it at various parking spots around town, while Bart is pressured by everyone at Springfield Elementary School to do well on the latest standardized test, because, if he doesn't, Springfield Elementary will shut down for having a low average.

Tropes:

  • Never Found the Body: Lunch Lady Doris got a job at Springfield Elementary School because no other school would hire a woman accused of murdering her husband. She commented she wasn't convicted because of this trope, even though she named her latest dish "Chicken Pete Pie." It may have been a Freudian Slip, but given the shows dark humor in recent episodes, it probably wasn't.
  • Protagonist-Centered Morality: Were supposed to be happy that a school other than Springfield Elementary was torn down.
  • Shout-Out: When Bart imagined what Springfield would be like if the school closed, he imagined the school would become a spinach farm with farm hands dressed and looking like Popeye.
