In this breakneck tour through a day in the life of Springfield, we learn that a lot goes on in a little town in some state somewhere in America. Apu takes the day off from the Kwik-E-Mart and has a kwik-e-romance. Barney finally pays Moe his bar tab only to witness Snake steal it. Principal Skinner nearly burns down his house while making lunch for Superintendent Chalmers, and Homer gets Maggie stuck in a newspaper vending machine. Lisa gets gum, mayonnaise and peanut butter stuck in her hair, and Smithers almost dies from a bee sting. In a nod to "Pulp Fiction" Snake and Chief Wiggum are taken hostage by Herman, the one-armed pawnshop owner, who wants to do god-knows-what. The two men are saved by Milhouse, who had to go to the bathroom really, really badly.
