House of Cards
Bart and Dad Eat Dinner
This is one small step for a kid, one giant leap for kidkind.
Bart Simpson

House of Cards is the twelfth Simpsons short and originally aired on The Tracey Ullman Show October 25, 1987.

Plot Edit

Bart is attempting to build a house of cards but fails many times because of Lisa and Maggie's interruptions. First, Lisa comes in with Maggie and asks what Bart is doing. Before Bart can respond the cards fall over and Lisa says, "Really neat Bart, a pile of cards." Next, Lisa startles Bart making him ruin his house of cards by telling him to "ree-LAX!" Then, Lisa and Maggie are invited in by Bart to see the finished house of cards but Maggie's pacifier sound makes the cards fall down. Finally, Bart is trying to put the final card on top while on an unsteady pile of boxes and chairs. Bart falls down but the card lands on top of the pile perfect. Right when Bart wakes up the house of cards collapses. 

Transcript == Bart: One of the most difficult of all human endevures... the House of Cards. Whew.

Lisa: Whatcha doin'? [Lisa's interruption made the house of cards fall down.] Really neat, Bart. A pile of cards. [First scene fades out, second scene fades in.]

Take it easy. Whatever you do, don't get the jitters. One false move and you're a goner. You're a too tense.

Ree-LAX! [Lisa's second interruption made Bart ruin the cards by telling him to "ree-LAX!".] You got to learn to listen to our advice.

Maggie: [Maggie takes her pacifier out and speaks.]

Maggie: Dooey shooey gavem mush.

Bart: [Bart starts to whisper.] Okay. It's ready. You can come in now, but don't make any noise. Not a sound. It's very pecurious.

Maggie: [Her pacifier sound made the cards fall down.]

Bart: [Bart gasps and falls down to the ground before the fourth scene would fade in.]

This is one small step for a kid, one giant leap for kidkind [Bart falls down to the ground while he places the last card on the second card.

Lisa: Bart! Wake up! Wake up! You did it!

Bart: What? [It made the cards fall down again.]

Lisa: Oh, forget it.
