"The Pacifier" is the fifth Simpsons short. It aired on The Tracey Ullman Show on June 21, 1987.


Bart and Lisa are playing in the yard with Maggie in the middle of them. Bart and Lisa take offense at Maggie sucking on her pacifier and Bart pulls Maggie's pacifier out of her mouth. Maggie leaves to her bedroom. She opens the drawer and finds hundreds more pacifiers, removes one, and walks away, sucking upon it. Maggie walks into the living room, and Bart and Lisa once again object. Bart pulls Maggie's pacifier out of her mouth again and they play catch with it. Maggie bites Bart's leg and catches the pacifier in her mouth. In the third scene, Lisa attempts to distract Maggie from sucking on her pacifier. Bart removes it and Lisa covers it with sauce. At the beginning of the next scene, Bart and Lisa are perfectly happy to see Maggie sucking on her pacifier. Maggie offers them each a pacifier, and to their surprise they enjoy the effects.
