Episode 10 – Bart Gets Hit by a Car
Couch Gag – This time the family all fall off leaving Homer to spread himself out on the couch.
Plot Synopsis – While skateboarding down the street, Bart is hit by a car driven by Mr. Burns. Homer turns down Mr. Burns’ token offer of $100, and instead hires ambulance-chaser Lionel Hutz to bring an outrageous lawsuit against the millionaire.
What is going on really – We start this episode with Bart skating around town only to find himself hit by a car, Mr Burns car putting him on an out of body experience heading to heaven.
When Lionel Hutz chases down the ambulance he wants to take Mr Burns for large sum of money while Mr Burns shows his ruthless nature by only offering Homer $100.
The case gets taken to court where Lionel Hutz takes Mr Burns attempting to take 1 million dollars but it is Marge who loses the case with her honest as the injury isn’t as bad as they claimed it was.
Final Thoughts – I think this episode is slightly before it’s time because people have been taking advantage of the through the courts to get money they don’t deserve. But this episode does drag in places.
