Teacher Holding Facility

The Teacher Holding Facility

At a girls basketball rally celebrating their first basket in a triple overtime game against Shelbyville, Bart causes trouble for the school. Edna grabs Bart and slaps him twice in front of the school. Edna soon has to face a meeting with she's confronted by Seymour Skinner, Superintendent Chalmers, Homer, and Marge in Skinner's office. Edna is suspended with pay, but she must go to a holding area until her hearing. After guilt gets the best of him, Bart goes to the building to free Edna. However, during the escape, Edna almost falls off the ladder but Ned happens to walk by and save her. Edna begins to talk about the Simpsons with Ned, and the couple soon starts to date. This causes much grief for Bart, as his teacher now constantly visits the house next door, making it hard for him to get away with slacking. Edna then gives Flanders the courage to ask for his stuff back from Homer, emptying the Simpsons' garage. Homer then tries to break up Nedna, but in talking realizes that he wants Ned to be happy. He then accidentally goes the guys at Moe's into talking about their numerous sexual exploits with Edna, causing Ned to question the relationship. Homer convinces Flanders to go back to Edna, and she agrees to be with him on the condition that her past never gets in their way again. Ned comments on how that will have to be decided by a "higher power". Thus the show ends on a cliffhanger, with Homer and Marge asking the fans to decide.


  • This is the first episode where fans/viewers of the show had a choice of deciding the fate of a character's relationship.
