Did You Notice . . .
... as Homer threatens Bart, Maggie sucks her pacifier seven times?
... the end of Maggie's pacifier is chewed up?

Yours Truly: Kinda short and forgettable, but cute. (B-)
Quotes and Scene Summaries
In the TV room, Bart is on the couch with Maggie, unwrapping a brand-new
Butterfinger bar. He grimaces delightfully, when Homer shows up in
front of him.
Homer: Baaart, I'm gonna open my mouth and close my eyes, and you're
gonna give me a big surprise! [his tone changes from innocent
to threatening halfway through this line]
While Homer performs his part of the deal, Bart thinks for a moment and
then pulls out Maggie's pacifier, and shoves it into Homer's waiting
mouth. Homer is too stupified to do anything.
[announcer/live action interlude]
Homer is sitting resentfully on the couch (with the pacifier still in
his mouth), as Maggie leaps and gropes from his lap, trying to get her
pacifier back. Bart is standing with his back to them, facing us.
Bart: [takes a bite] Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger.
Behind Bart, Maggie finally retrieves her pacifier, and places it back
in her mouth.

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.
