Quotes and Scene Summaries

Homer observes Bart, who is sound asleep in bed, and slowly sneaks into the room towards the bedpost, where a Butterfinger bar lies, attached to two alligator-clips. Homer: [whispers] Ooh, my little buddy's sleeping like a baby! He won't mind if I take a bite of his crispity, crunchety, peanut- Before he can finish his sentance, his grip on the Butterfinger bar sends a powerful electric shock through his arm, and he falls to the floor whimpering. The bar was apparently wired to a small electric generator. Bart sits up in bed. Bart: [lecturing] I told you, Homer! Nobody'd better lay a finger on my Butterfinger. This last sentance is said over a live-action picture of a Butterfinger. [End of Commercial. Time: 00:15]

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.
