While doing a school report on Moe, Lisa discovers his dark poetic talent and helps get him published in "AMERICAN POETRY PERSPECTIVES". The poems earn him and the Simpson family an invitation to a literary conference in Vermont where rather than be considered a hack by his peers, Moe marginalizes Lisa's contributions. Moe is later unable to assemble a poem to recite and ends up saving face with Lisa by reciting a sentimental piece about their friendship that bombs his career.
