Decisions, Decisions is a Bart Simpson story first printed in Bart Simpson #74.


Lisa uses Bart as an unwitting test subject in her science experiment on the effects of decision fatigue.


Lisa is reading online that around 4pm, people are tired of making decisions and she discovers around 4pm that Maggie is having trouble choosing which of two toys she'll play with, and chooses not to play with either one. Lisa then reads online that snacks are a great way to give your brain power, and she thinks that maybe that's why the British drink tea and eat scones at 4pm. Lisa decides what she wants to do for her next science project: she'll let Bart make lots of decisions. Marge points out to Lisa that Bart probably will not like it, but after she takes a bite of a snack she gets an idea: she'll do it without Bart finding out about it. The next day there is no school, so Lisa starts her test on Bart by letting him help her make the best skateboard model throughout the day. Around 4pm Bart has trouble helping Lisa anymore, so Marge gives Bart a snack and afterwards, Lisa's test is complete. Bart then goes and watches TV while Lisa finishes her work. Marge watches Lisa's project and points out that the image of the guinea pig is similar to Bart, but Lisa says that no one outside the family will recognize him.

The day of the science fair, all of the students mock Bart because they recognize him from Lisa's project. Bart is depressed and tells Lisa that he thought she wanted to have fun with him, but it turns out that she just used him as a project. Lisa feels bad for what she did and when she later intends to apologize, Bart exposes her for a joke and they make up. Marge then let Bart and Lisa go and watch a movie but they have a problem choosing a movie, but after Marge brings snacks to them they select Vampire High. Marge then looks at Lisa's project and says it is fun that science has found out what moms have known for centuries.
