Off the Grid
Homer receives a power bill which is so expensive that he has a protest seizure. Later Homer tells Marge that he won't pay it. Marge doesn't think they can pay it. Homer suggests they could dip into Bart's college fund, at which they burst out laughing. Lisa tells Bart about a documentary called Planet on Probation, but he pretends to be asleep. Lisa starts cutting costs by unplugging plugs and turning down the thermostat saying that 'for every one degree lower on the thermostat saves 5% on the heating bill'. Homer then turns it all the way off. Homer then says they will have no heat and no electricity. The next morning Homer wakes up late and has to cycle to work instead of drive. That Sunday in Church, Marge learns that she has inspired others to turn their heating and electric off as well. At Burns' Manor, Mr. Burns is outraged about people turning off their power so asks 'those Hollywood whiz kids' to create an infomercial. Eventually the Simpsons have to turn the power on to watch Planet on Probation but it was replaced by Mr. Burns' infomericial.
What's Washing? Crossword
Are We There, Yeti?

He slides down the mountain and into a Yeti. One year later, Itchy goes back and finds Scratchy and the Yeti has had babies.
The Landfill of Forbidden Toys
The toymakers at Krustyco hold a board meeting to share the newest toys they made. One man suggests the Krustybot which transforms into a Cadillac Escalade, which Krusty dismisses as being too 1983. Another man suggests a little Krusty action figure, which, when water is poured on it, it grows instantly to become a larger Krusty. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) rushes in, and tells Krusty that it has many ecological violations such as Dioxins, Chlorides, Animal Feces, Mercury, 'Likelihood of electric shock', Fire Hazards, and Acids. The EPA claimed that the lead paint they used was radioactive lead paint, and that that Krustyco toy assemblers in China violated quantity. The Krusty toys were thrown in a landfill and sealed by concrete. It snows a huge amount, and all of the kids' parents fail to get them presents. The snow melts causing the Krusty figures to grow. The landfill breaks at the force of the toys and the Krusty toys and the other violated toys rain and the kids get their toys. Bart comments "It just goes to show, Lisa, nothing ever ruins Christmas!" while the EPA helicopters hover above.
Homer Simpson Presents A Gourmet's Guide to Fine Dining
Lisa's family reading night doesn't go to plan when Homer forgets his book (leading to him reading his beer bottle's label) and Bart reading "The Cat Wears A Hat" (a book at first grade reading level). Lisa gives in and decides to turn on the TV and to the family's annoyance puts on subtitles and turns the volume off, forcing them to read. The strip ends with Krusty noting that these views are Lisa's and dn not reflect Krustylu Studios and that you should watch plenty of TV.
Ms Krabappel have tasked her class to research South America in the school's computer room and leaves the room for few minutes.

Oh, Plow, Where Art Thou?
Homer accidentily discovers his old 'Mr. Plow' jacket while searching for a month-old meatloaf in the closet. Homer wonders where his plow went to. Gil is seen selling the plow to the Comic Book Guy where he admits he doesn't work there. Gil sells the plow to the Comic Book Guy for $100. Krusty buys the plow from the Comic Book Guy for a thousand dollars, and Reverend Lovejoy thought he could melt it and sell the scrap metal to the Catholics for crucfixes. Snake steals the plow and Reverend Lovejoy's plans are ruined. Groundskeeper Willie gives Snake ten thousand dollars for the plow. Otto drives home in it, claiming he 'better get home before I forget where it is'. Chief Wiggum cites Otto for driving 90 miles an hour against traffic on top of the median strip backwards with a broken tail light in a snow plow. Ralph Wiggum, Chief Wiggum's son, drives the plow out of the impound lot while singing Ghost Eraser (a parody of Ghost Racer) and crashes into Hans Moleman's house. Hans Moleman drives to the Springfield DMV where Selma Bouvier and her sister drive home in the plow, with Ralph hiding in the back seat. Ralph gets thrown out when he asked if they were his 'mommies'. Fat Tony takes the plow from them, saying he would kill their lizard, Jub Jub. Fat Tony throws it in the ocean when the Sea Captain pulls it out, Herman Hermann buys it, and tries to get Abe Simpson to buy it, but Abe remembers how it made him so angry for plowing away his wounded friends. He blows it up with a tank (it is revealed Herman keeps a real bullet in the tank "as a testament to my right to bear arms").
