| Comic Story information
...Who Wants to Win a Pocketful of Quarters? is a Bart Simpson story first printed in Bart Simpson #4.
Homer ignores Lisa's high score on a spelling test while Bart teases her, suggesting she go on a game show to show off her intellect. She eventually gives in and applies to be on ...Who Wants to Win a Pocketful of Quarters?, a quiz show with child contestants hosted by Kent Brockman. Her application is successful and she arrives to be on the show the next day. Marge gives Lisa some extra-strong medicine as she has a cold, but this makes it hard for her to concentrate when the contest starts. Eventually, partly by luck, Lisa makes it to the final round.
Brockman throws some difficult and unusual questions at Lisa because he wants her to lose so he can use the quarters for his laundry. However, she is unwavered until the final question: "Who invented Moo Goo Gai Pan?". Unable to answer, Lisa sneezes and Brockman misinterprets her response as "Ah Choo", the correct answer. Lisa uses the quarters to buy donuts for Homer.
