    The look on the little girls face is great.

    I love this episode but the third act has always bothered me. I have no problems with the first and second acts because it probably took Moe a couple of weeks to change his bar into a family restaurant, getting the deep fryer, and recording that tv ad so I assume that Bart spent that same amount of time without a soul before starting to feel bad about it and telling Lisa what he did. Problems start when Bart leaves the restaurant to get his soul back. I know Bart spent the entire night in his journey going to Milhouse’s house, getting his bike destroyed coming across Ralph, getting to Milhouse’s grandma house and finally waking up at the door of the comic book store. All that is plausible, but what about Moe? was the sudden leaving of all the people who was eating when he screamed at the little girl enough to ruin his business? I don’t think you could lose your family restaurant reputation overnight for an incident like that (at least not in those days without massive internet access) and how the heck was Moe able to get the restaurant turned into a tavern again in just a few hours? Bart hadn’t even reached Milhouse’s grandma’s house before Moe’s tavern already got back to normal. Maybe the joke was that Moe was so fed up with running a restaurant that it took him just a few hours to go back to the status quo, but it always felt strange to me how the B plot was so clumsily closed. Also, I don’t think Marge would have been ok with her 10 years old son not returning home after leaving the restaurant, but she literally vanishes from the episode after that happens.
    Despite that, this episode is so fun that I forgive it for everything that I have mentioned. I just wanted to share my thoughts with the people from this blog that I have been following for an entire decade. I hope you are all doing well, guys!

      I definitely think bad word-of-mouth would be enough to ruin Moe’s business in a town like Springfield. Not only that, it was probably the wake-up call he needed; no doubt he didn’t want to push himself any further after that incident. He wanted his bar back.

      You do make a good point about Marge, though. We can chalk that one up to carelessness.

      Nice to see another commenter despite this place gathering dust lately.
