This The Simpsons review contains spoilers. While the payoff gives us something less than a pre-Christmas miracle, but goes very far in redeeming the episode from a traditional copout. The teachers at Springfield Elementary are big dumb jerks, and Miss Hoover is one of the biggest.
She is also one of its least visible, so it is good to see her featured, and flawed. Bart Simpson kissed Miss Krabappel in the earliest seasons. Lisa is a grade A student in a B minus world, and when she stands up against the idiocracy, she strikes a blow for good students everywhere.
Lisa tells the story to Homer, on the roof, while watching a meteor shower. He is very understanding, and she is very vulnerable.
The tale spins out as a flashback to the day. The morning sequence is very funny, with gags coming as quickly as you can pour syrup onto melons. The breakfast-gravy-Maggie sequence, of course, has to out slip the dog. But we know from the opening, the day is going to end on a remorseful night on the roof.

Lisa ties this project in with her dreams of Yale, though she has her snooze alarm set to a safety-school wakeup call. Some of the other projects are quite good; we learn German chocolate cake was invented by an American named German, who apparently loved cake. Normally his head is spinning at the antics of Principal Skinner. Miss Hoover, of course, doubles down with what we should take as the overriding school curriculum: Truth has no place in this classroom.
Speaking truth to power sends Lisa down the road to rebellion. She undergoes the indignity of the detention frisk, and ultimate shakedown, as Willie mocks her for the tension tooth marks in her pencil and hocks its shavings in the event they turn out to be a quarter ounce of marijuana. The detention hall scene is well done.
It is not Breakfast Club. We can feel how the inventor smelled it with his ears. Being a teacher is detention. The first thing she does is get the detention squad tattoo artist Simpsons ms hoover give her Sharpie Tattoo some teeth.
Lisa becomes a rebel at least once a season, and they are consistently good episodes, or at least standouts of their season. There is also a fun family vibe when Marge notes how funny it feels to drive Lisa home from detention. The trip also gives Maggie a character-enforcing visual bit where she takes a banana out of its peel to suck the peel.
What makes it funnier is how she is looking to Lisa for approval while she is doing Simpsons ms hoover. But Yale is at stake and Yalemen apologize a cappella. No one from Springfield appears to ever apologize. Inappropriate, yes. He hears that one all the time. Get the best of Den of Geek delivered right to your inbox! This is the core of it. At this juncture, Lisa can choose to empathize with Miss Hoover, or trick her with a soggy excuse for a non-apology. She watches her teacher pine over a recliner, break a quarter and slide home on a piece of cardboard to save her aching back.
Miss Hoover has been phoning in her lessons for a long time. Miss Hoover is the reason Lisa is the saddest kid in grade two. The apology Lenny and Carl will never exchange is over a spoiler alert, which le to us learning the Lady Gaga Star Is Born is the same as all the other ones. Also, Willie losing his fake accent on the word English is an unexpected giggle. But it is the bribery which actually skewers it into classic The Simpsons subversion. When she goes bad, good things follow.
But her cynicism clinches this episode. She says straight out what an apology costs, and only then gets something in return. Tony Sokol tsokol. Culture Editor Tony Sokol is a writer, playwright and musician.
