Recap: The Simpsons S 24 E 6 A Tree Grows In Springfield
Homer becomes obsessed with a Mapple MyPad he won in a silent auction at school, but when he breaks it, he loses all hope — then finds it again when he discovers that his backyard tree has spelled out the word "HOPE" in sap.

This episode contains examples of (YMMV tropes can be found here):

  • Brick Joke: During Kent Brockman's investigation we see where Lenny ended up after his conversation with Moe and Homer got dropped.
  • Hypocritical Humor: Homer says that books are for cavemen yet he acts like a caveman when seeing fire.
  • Something Completely Different: A short at the end of the episode featuring a Continuity Nod of in-universe Simpsons' products.
