Synopsis by Mark Deming
Lisa Simpson (voice of Yeardley Smith) has never had much luck in getting her father, Homer (voice of Dan Castellaneta), to participate in her interests, but when she complains about this to her mother, Marge (voice of Julie Kavner), Mom suggests that Lisa might start by trying to join in with her father's pastimes. Lisa starts by watching football with her Dad, and Homer soon discovers Lisa has a near flawless knack for picking the winners of each week's games. Thanks to Lisa's shrewd analysis of the teams and the players, Homer actually starts winning his weekly bets placed with neighborhood bartender Moe (voice of Hank Azaria), but while Lisa is initially happy to be spending quality time with her father -- and getting plenty of new toys to boot -- when she learns about Homer's gambling, she's crushed, certain her father cares more about winning his bets than he does about her. "Lisa The Greek" was first aired on January 23, 1992.
