In the first work, Bart catches a three-eyed fish and Springfield's nuclear power plant is threatened with closure. Homer's boss, Mr. Burns, decides to run for Governor and a key campaign tactic is dinner with the Simpsons. Lisa frets that they're being used, but Homer staunchly supports his boss-- after all, what's so terrible about a three-eyed fish. Next, on Thanksgiving, Lisa's centerpiece for the family table goes up in smoke in the family fireplace thanks to Bart-- who refuses to say he's sorry. But, before the day is over, Bart learns something about apologies, Homer and Marge learn that, maybe, they're not such bad parents, and the Simpsons get "one more crack at togetherness."
