[MC15] No Teasing
Compiled by Jordan Eisenberg
Did You Notice . . .
... Maggie sucks her pacifier more than 30 times? (For a 30-second
commercial, that's a lot!)
Yours Truly: M'eh. (C+)
Quotes and Scene Summaries
Lisa and Maggie are playing in the living room, when Bart intrudes,
holding a Butterfinger bar.
Bart: [taunting] Behold! The last Butterfinger in the whole house,
and _I_ have it.
Lisa: [cheerful] Dad says no teasing.
Bart ignores her and waves it in her face, yelling "Nananana-na-na." He
then dangles it above her face and yanks it away as she grabs for it.
Bart: Check out the smooth, chocolatey outside and crispety-crunchety,
Lisa: Dad says if you make us scream, you're dead meat.
Bart: You wouldn't scream.
Lisa doesn't hesitate to take a deep breath and yell "Daaad!" Bart
panics and hands half of the Butterfinger bar to each of his two
sisters. Homer barges in the door.
Homer: [angry] _Now_ what?
Lisa: [sweetly / her mouth full] Never mind.

Bart: Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger.

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.
