Bart's Girlfriend

EPISODE:

Episode Info

One day at Springfield Elementary School, Bart Simpson (voice of Nancy Cartwright) and his fellow fifth graders are introduced to their new classmate, Jessica Lovejoy (voice of Meryl Streep -- yes, that Meryl Streep), who is the daughter of local parishioner Reverend Lovejoy (voice of Harry Shearer). For Bart, it's love at first sight, and he attempts to convince Jessica he's a perfect gentleman in order to win her over. Jessica, however, regards Bart with indifference, and when he is invited over to dinner and repeats an off-color joke he heard Martin Lawrence tell on his Fox TV show, Bart figures he's blown his last chance. But Bart quickly discovers Jessica has a rebellious streak, and is attracted to his mischievous nature. After a while, however, Bart decides that Jessica's thirst for preteen delinquency is more than he can handle ("You're turning me into a criminal, when all I want to be is a petty thug"); Jessica responds by stealing the money from the collection plate at her father's church one Sunday, and framing Bart for the crime. "Bart's Girlfriend" first aired on November 6, 1994.
