When Lorne asked me to host this show I said, "Lorne, why me?" [ Laughing .]
I mean, I did just star in my first movie with Marvin Hagler and Tova Borgnine-- Yeah! [ Man Coughing .]
Anyway, we got a great show for you.

Better clean 'em.
- Hah? Hah? - [ Man In Audience Coughing .]
[ Groans .]
This goes on for 1 2 more minutes.
So the last time you saw your father was six years ago? Yeah.
He left me out on the curb for the ashman.
What a revoltin' development.
You brave little soldier.
I've been saving someone special for a case like yours.
[ Tires Screech .]
[ Gasping .]
- Bart Simpson? - Yo.
I'm Tom.
Let's ride.
Bart's dad has really pulled himself together.
- Bart's not mad at me.
- He called you a bad father.
Marge, when kids these days say "bad," they mean "good.
" And to shake your booty means to wiggle one's butt.
- Permit me to demonstrate.
- No! I just think you should talk to Bart about-- Good Lord! Homer, do you have an explanation for this bill? Oh, it's that record club.
The first nine were only a penny.
Then they jacked up the price! [ Crying .]
It's not fair.
It's not fair, I tells ya.
No, no.
Someone made $300 worth of phone calls to something called the "Corey Hotline.
" - Wasn't me.
- [ Gasps .]
Lisa! Why didn't you ask our permission, Lisa? I did.
- Dad, can I-- - Yeah, yeah, yeah.
Ah, honey, I know what you're going through.
When I was a girl, I had a crush on Bobby Sherman.
The point is I want you to stop making these calls.
All right, Mom.
I promise you will never be billed for another call.

The start of the game will be delayed so we can introduce the recruiter for the Springfield Communist Party.
- [Crowd Jeering.]

- allegory, Montessori.
[ Straining .]
Okay, Bart, tomorrow we'll blast your quads.
[ Slurping .]
This meatball soup is delicious, Stimpy.
That's not meatball soup.
That's my collection of fur balls in stomach acid.
You idiot! You're trying to kill me, man! Someday, I want to be an F-1 4 pilot like my hero, Tom.
He lent me this new weapon called a neural disrupter.
[ Whirring .]
Hey-- [ Grunting .]
He's not dead, is he, Bart? Nah, but I wouldn't give him any homework for a while.
Very good, Bart.
Thank you.
Don't thank me.
Thank an unprecedented eight-year military buildup.
Milhouse, you're next.
Uh, I have a horsie.
[ Imitates Neighing .]
Wuss! [Grampa.]
Lisa, I'm glad you came.

- [Door Slamming.]
- Hey-- Wait a minute.
Lisa, I know I can trust you - to inventory this glee club peanut brittle.

Canada stalls on trade pact.
- [ Clicks .]
- [ Gasps .]
Hey, look at that forest fire down there.
- Yeah, great.
- What's the matter? Well, I've been thinking, you've been really great to me but there's probably some other kid who needs you even more.
Bart, I could kiss you if the Bigger Brothers hadn't made me sign a form promising I wouldn't.
No one needs me more than a child with your tragic upbringing.
Now, let's set down at that frogurt stand.
So, that's it! [ Engine Whirring, Tires Screeching .]
Hello, son.
- Where have you been? - Playing with Milhouse.
No, you haven't! You've been out gallivanting around with that floozy of a bigger brother of yours! Haven't you? Haven't you? - Look at me! - Dad, it just kind of happened.
You're taking this too hard.
How would you like me to take it? "Go ahead, Bart.
Have your fun.
I'll be waiting for you"? I'm sorry.
- I can't do it! - Well, what are you gonna do? [ Gulps .]
You'll see.
And what are your reasons for wanting a little brother? [ Thinking .]
Don't say revenge.
Don't say revenge.
Uh, revenge? [ Thinking .]
That's it.
I'm gettin' out of here.
[ Footsteps Departing, Door Slamming .]
Welcome aboard, Mr.
Any of these boys would be thrilled to have a bigger brother like you.
Suey! Suey! Eh, maybe this was a mistake.
Do you have a bigger brother for me yet? Okay.
I'll be back in an hour.
[Door Closes.]
[ Whimpering, Sniffing .]
I'll take him.
Do you have him in blond? Lisa, the only way you'll lick this is one day at a time.
If you can make it to midnight without calling the Corey line you'll know you've beaten it forever.
Midnight? - Listen to your mother, Lisa.
I owe everything I have to my mother's watchful eye and swift hand.
Oh, there's Mother now-- - [Crow Cawing.]
- watching me.
What's that, Mother? They have a right to be here.
It's school business.

Your son Bart sounds very bad.
Oh, he is.
Son, I just want you to know I love you very much.

[ Slurps .]
I just press this button and the door opens like magic.
- Why does it stop there? - Because it's a stupid piece of junk! [ Shouting .]
Well, I'd better Get you home.
- What's the matter? - I've spent every night of my life in the city.
I have never seen the stars.
Tell me more.
I want to know all the constellations.
Well, there's jerry the cowboy.
And that big dipper looking thing is Alan the cowboy.

[ Groaning .]
[ Screams .]
[ Growling .]
Hey, Homer, have you seen my skateboard? - I gave it to Pepi.

- Uh-oh.
Better not let him see me.
What the-- Oh, it's you.
[ Clicks Tongue .]
So, you're looking well.
Come on, Bart.
You know better than to talk to strangers.
For your information, I'm his father.
His father-- the drunken gambler? That's right.
And who might you be? [ Grunts .]
Hi-yah! [ Shouting .]
Hai! Ho! Hah! Woo! There you go, fellas.
D'oh! - Look! There's another disadvantaged boy.
- Where? [Grunting.]
There's a couple of guys fighting at the aquarium, Chief.
They still sell those frozen bananas? - I think so.
- Let's roll.
This just in.
A fistfight is in progress in downtown Springfield.
Early reports indicate, and these are very preliminary that one of the fighters is a giant lizard.

Now I need to find another little brother.
And I need to find another big brother.
My car's gonna feel so empty on the ride home.
And me, I have no ride at all.
I already bought a giant ham for dinner.

Don't talk about food.
I'm so hungry.
- Well, good-bye.
- Well, good-bye.
I've got an idea.
- An idea? - Huh? - Another beer, Dad? - Thanks, son.
Dad, remember when Tom had you in that headlock and you screamed, "I'm a hemophiliac" and when he let you go you kicked him in the back? [ Chuckling .]
Yeah? Will you teach me how to do that? Sure, boy.
First, you gotta shriek like a woman.
And keep sobbing till he turns away in disgust.
That's when it's time to kick some back.
-And then when he's lying out on the ground-- - Yeah? - Kick him in the ribs.
- Yeah? -Step on his neck.
- Yeah? -And run like hell.
-[Both Laughing.]
