Episode 6: A Tree Grows in Springfield

Summary

Homer is down in the dumps, until Lisa wins him a hi-tech computer tablet in the school raffle - and it soon becomes impossible for him to put it down, as every waking minute he finds himself stroking or jabbing the shiny touchscreen. However, disaster strikes when he breaks the device, sending him spiralling back down into the depths of despair. But when Ned Flanders discovers the word `Hope' written on a tree trunk in the Simpsons' garden, Homer believes it to be a miracle and his faith in life is restored - although newsman Kent Brockman isn't quite so convinced.
