Lisa and Marge go to help clean up an oil spill, leaving Homer and Bart at home. While they are gone, Bart damages private property, and so Homer makes Bart work there for punishment. However, it turns out the house is actually the "Maison Derriere" - a burlesque house.
Angry Springfield citizens tell Homer of what they think, and when Marge she returns and joins the fight against Ms. Belle to kick her and her house out of Springfield.
To save the house, Homer sings a song with the whole town joining in, convincing the townspeople to spare the house. But Marge accidentally destroys it anyway and has to pay it off as a ventriloquist act at the house.
