Principal Skinner finally becomes fed up with Bart’s pranks and proposes that Bart be sent to France as part of the student exchange program. The family agrees and Bart is sent to the “beautiful” Château Maison, which is actually a dilapidated farmhouse on a neglected vineyard. Bart is treated like a slave by two unscrupulous winemakers, César and Ugolin, who eventually feed him wine tainted with antifreeze. Meanwhile, an Albanian boy named Adil starts to live with the Simpsons who, unbeknownst to Homer, is a spy sent by his country to obtain nuclear blueprints. Back in France, Bart learns French and reports the winemakers’ crimes to the authorities.
Note: First episode to feature Agnes Skinner.
