Couch: The family are bounced into the ceiling by the sofa.
- The elementary school kids named their assembly room 'The Butthead Hall'.
Homage: Rollerball (Norman Jewison, 1975) provides some inspiration here.
Look out for: The volleyball deflated by Lisa's hair; Edna's alphabetical homework call, with which she traps Bart at 'B'.
Notes: A fabulous episode for Lisa and Bart, although with a special mention for a few seconds of tremendous Edna Krabappel wickedness.
