Quotes and Scene Summaries

Outside town hall, many people are gathered around screaming and picketing. Scott Christian is doing a news report. Scott: The crime of the century has been solved! We're live from Springfield to find out who laid a finger on Bart's Butterfinger, and _who_ will collect the $50,000. Chief Wiggum: Wheel 'im out, boys. Homer is wheeled out, tied to a luggage carrier by ropes wrapped around his chest and legs. Homer and Bart exchange nervous looks. Bart: [shocked] Homer? Just then, Maggie crawls up Homer's body (which is on a slant because of the luggage carrier) to his face, and pulls a mask off, revealing that it isn't actually Homer at all: it's Krusty the Clown! Everyone: [gasps] Bart: [gasp] Krusty! Krusty: [laughs goofily] [groans] Krusty tries to hop away while still tied up, but he tumbles down the steps outside town hall. As he lands at the bottom, he groans and Scott Christian resumes his report from next to the staircase. Scott: That's whodunnit. Here's who won the $50,000 award. A Springfield Shopper headline spins to the foreground with the name of the winner. Bart: [from offscreen] Naaaancy Fredholm from Hudson, New Hampshire. Krusty, now wrapped in bandages, is being carted away to his prison cell by Chief Wiggum. Bart appears wearing a detectives' trenchcoat, and takes a bite out of his Butterfinger bar. Bart: You're one exceptional detective, man. [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.
