Scenes from the Class Struggle in Springfield
Bart the Fink
Lisa the Iconoclast
[The Simpsons each receive $100 in a bequest from Great-Aunt Hortense, who has recently passed away. Marge takes the kids to the bank to deposit their money.]
Marge: You'll feel better knowing your money's in the hands of professionals.
Bank Clerk: [wearing an ape mask] Uk, uk. Are you folks ready to go ape?
Lisa: [protesting] Mom...
Marge: A professional in an ape mask is still a professional.

[In the Cayman Islands, a representative of the Cayman Islands Offshore Holding Corporation has just received a phone call, inquiring about Krusty the Clown's account.]
Representative: I'm sorry. I cannot divulge information about that customer's secret, illegal account.
[The representative hangs up the phone, then does a double take as he realizes what he just did.]
Representative: Oh, crap, I shouldn't have said he was a customer. Oh, crap, I shouldn't have said it was a secret. Oh, crap! I certainly shouldn't have said it was illegal! [sighs resignedly] Oh, it's too hot today.

[Thanks to Bart's alerting the bank about Krusty's Cayman Islands account, Krusty has been arrested. The bank clerk fills Bart in on what's happened.]

Bank Clerk: It turns out Krusty is one of the biggest tax cheats in history, and they nailed him, all thanks to you. Some might say you're a hero, kid. Not me, though. I love Krusty.
[Bart groans.]

(Superintendent Chalmers and Mrs. Skinner walk up to a house.)
Chalmers: I must say I've had a lovely evening, Agnes. I don't suppose I could come in for a cup of...
(Principal Skinner opens the door and turns on the light.)
Mrs. Skinner: (reproachful) Seymour!
Skinner: Mother? (gasps) Superintendent Chalmers!
Chalmers: (grouchily) Skinner!
Skinner: (mumbling to himself, nervously) What I wouldn't give for something to interrupt this awkward moment.
(Krusty flies by bawling.)
Skinner: (smiling) That'll do nicely.

[On the evening news, Kent Brockman reports on Krusty's arrest and Bart's role in it. Bart feels remorseful.]
Bart: Krusty's my hero. How could I do this to him?
Lisa: It is a tragedy for all us kids, but Bart, you can't beat yourself up.
Bart: Yeah. There'll be plenty of people to do that for me at recess tomorrow.
