Armed with high-cholesterol snacks, Homer sits down to another Sunday of football. Lisa enters the room to show her dad a shoebox apartment she made for her Malibu Stacy dolls. Lisa complains to Marge, who suggests spending some "quality time" with Homer by taking up his interests.
Lisa decides to join her father on the couch, and an annoyed Homer reluctantly agrees. By now, New England is crushing Denver and has just forced another Broncos fumble. Homer decides to try again on the Miami-Cincinnati game and calls a "guaranteed pick" service for advice; however, it soon becomes clear the only thing "The Coach" wants is the caller's money. Lisa questions Homer about the call, and likens sports betting to putting a lot of toppings on ice cream.
In the end, the Dolphins win, and Homer and Lisa celebrate. Meanwhile, Marge has taken Bart shopping for new dorky clothes that the bullies taunt him for. Lisa becomes very adept at choosing winners of football games, and Homer declares every Sunday "Daddy-Daughter Day. Lisa remains perfect in her picks, earning Homer more and more money as Super Bowl approaches. Using his new money, Homer buys his family expensive presents and treats them to fine dining. One night, Marge gets suspicious of where Homer is getting the money from, and realizes the truth, but Homer says it's not a big deal and that gambling has brought him and Lisa together.
However, earlier that day, Homer had decided to go bowling with Barney on the Sunday after the Super Bowl instead of going on a mountain hike with Lisa, showing that Homer had only used Lisa for gambling. However, Homer announces he is going bowling with Barney, and that "Daddy-Daughter Day" is over until the next football season, casuing Lisa to realize that Homer only used her to help him gamble and never wanted to be with Lisa at all. Marge calls Homer a "very selfish man," and Bart taunts him with the new swearing device that Homer bought for him.
A heartbroken Lisa then gives up all the Malibu Stacy toys that Homer bought for her with his money. Homer realizes he needs to make amends with Lisa, but she is too hurt to even talk with him. In fact, she makes a cryptic prediction as to the winner of the game: If she still loves Homer, Washington will win; if she doesn't, Buffalo.
Homer becomes even more anxious over his relationship with Lisa as Super Bowl Sunday approaches. When he hears Lisa mournfully play her saxophone, he leaves for Moe's Tavern to watch the game. Homer mopes throughout the game, especially after Buffalo gets a halftime lead. The game is highlighted by a corny halftime commercial for Duff Beer, an equally silly halftime show and Troy McClure's promo for his new situation comedy, which premieres right after the Super Bowl.
And when they win, he wants to take all the credit. So yeah, in a way, Jerry Jones is Mr. One could make an argument that it was around this time where Homer started to have every occupation other than working at the nuclear power plant and that made the show worse. Jimbo, Jimbo, go for the face! Look, Ralph Wiggum lost his shin guard! Hack the bone! This episode really epitomized Bart and Lisa as a brother and sister.
In fact, your right fielder has been dead for years. This entire episode had to have been a massive undertaking in terms of production as all the guest stars needed to be lined up and writers needed to come up with various ways to keep the pros away from the championship game.
