Flanders: Reverend, I'm, uh, I'm afraid something terrible has
Lovejoy: Well, sit down and rap with me brother, that's what I'm here
Flanders: [sits] I was talked into doing a dance called "The Bump,"

the phone with Flanders]
Flanders: Well, I, I think I may be coveting my own wife.
[cut to shot of Reverend playing with a small train set]

Lovejoy: Finally, I just stopped caring. Luckily, by then it was the
