Homer gets an illegal cable hookup in the Simpson house. Lisa, worrying he's breaking the 8th of the 11 Commandments, guilts Homer into cutting the wire even when the big pay per view boxing match is on. Homer invites the whole town over to watch where his various thefts start to add up. Will he cut the wire or is the glory of stolen cable too strong?
