Synopsis

When Miss Hoover is sick with lime disease, a substitute is needed to take her place. Mr. Bergstrom is just that substitute and he develops a strong connection with Lisa. The more she connects with him, the more she questions Homer's role as her male role model. Things get even worse when Mr. Bergstrom finally has to leave to teach at another town. It's up to Homer to heal the wounds of her heartbroken daughter and combat his impact as a father.
