When Bart is held back a year and Lisa fast-streamed they end up in the same class where, for once, Bart is the star pupil because he has already learned the material. Things worsen between them on a field trip where they are called upon to design a new flag for the state of Springfield and Bart sabotages his sister's efforts. After they fight they get lost in the woods before they are found by a hill-billy family and returned home. After this Principal Skinner feels it best to return them to their old classes.

If this episode has taught us anything, it's that nothing works better than the status quo. Bart, you're promoted back to the fourth grade.
And Lisa, you have a choice. You may continue to be challenged in third grade, or return to second grade and be merely a big fish in a little pond.
Big fish! Big fish!
