Quotes and Scene Summaries

Bart wakes up to find that his four limbs are tied to the bedposts, and screams. Lisa pops up from beside his bed, with a devilish look and a box of Bart's Butterfinger BB's. Lisa: You're such a brat, Bart. Bart: Mua? Lisa: Yeah, you won't share your new Butterfinger BB's. Lisa pours all of the "BB's" packets onto Bart's bed, and as the view clears up again, Bart suddenly notices that the whole town has crowded into his room, including the family, Krusty, Mr. Burns, Smithers, Mrs. Krabappel, Apu and Otto. Krusty swipes two armfulls. Krusty: So we're taking 'em! Homer tosses a single chocolate BB into his mouth. Homer: Mmm ... bite-sized! Mr. Burns sits with his mouth gaping open like a baby bird as Smithers drops a few down into his boss' throat, one by one. Smithers: Down the hatch, sir. Maggie successfully juggles six of them, but Bart yells "Maggie, no!" and Santa's Little Helper steals a few of them out of the air. In a panoramic view, all of the invaders are pigging out on Bart's stash. Krusty lets out an evil laugh, Lisa tosses herself a snack, Homer gurgles lustfully at the huge, brown, tasty pile he's pouring in front of himself, and Otto taps the contents of a bag into his palm. Otto: Groovy munchies, man! This is too much, and Bart sits up in bed screaming. The room is empty. It was all a dream. He wipes his brow worriedly. [announcer / live action interlude] Bart: Nobody'd better lay a finger on my Butterfinger BB's. Bart has a drawerful of Butterfinger BB's, but rather than sitting in a desk, the drawer is propped up sideways against his bed. he reaches into the pile, and a load of them topples out. A Krusty doll that was in the pile lands in Bart's lap, which causes him to scream. [End of Commercial. Time: 00:30]

This capsule is ©1999 by Jordan Eisenberg. The Simpsons and Butterfinger remain the propeties of FOX and Butterfinger, respectively. Any meaningful contributions to society at large by my work here was stricty unintentional. Thanks to Brian Petersen for supplying tapes of the commercials, without which there could be no capsule.
