In the episode, Bart cuts the head off of the statue in the center of town to impress Jimbo Jones, Kearney Zzyzwicz, and Dolphin "Dolph" Starbeam, three children Bart admires. When the children tell Bart that they would "break every bone in the body of the person who cut the head off the statue" (unaware Bart stole the head), Bart sees the error of his ways. After telling his family, Homer and Bart head to the center of town, where they are met by a mob. After Bart tells the mob he has made a mistake, the townspeople forgive Bart.
