Homer: Wow! This plankton’s only 33 cents.
Lisa: According to the Mexican Council of Food this expired two years ago.
Homer: Sure, by their standards, but we live in America.
Lisa: This also says it can cause red tide poisoning.
Homer: [Still eating] But it’s so cheap.

Tonight, on Eye on Springfield…the 33 Cent Store! Since the 99 Cent Store is reserved for weddings, the Simpson family was forced to shop at the 33 Cent Store where they sell blue versions of Marge’s dress *shudder*. You can buy the following items at the 33 Cent Store:
- Cool Ranch Soda
- Onions ?
SkittleBrau?! But according to Apu such an item does not exist? I mean, what are we to believe, that this is some sort of a magic beverage that suddenly appears between episodes? The krill is totally believable though, would probably taste great in a smoothie. And before anyone requests it, I’m not making Cool Ranch Soda…probably not anyway. Ok, fine. I’ll make it!
