While there she finds out that Gina from The Wandering Juvie is her cellmate and they have an instant fallout. Every time Gina does something bad in prison she blames Lisa and the warden always believes Gina and punishes Lisa.

Episode 3 (#467) Boys will be Girls
A new doll is advertised on television called Lettuce Garden Children in which these dolls are suitable for girls AND boys since the commercials feature boys playing with boyish dolls and girls playing with girlish dolls. Lisa is thankful for the advertising since she insists boys need to learn parenting just as much as girls. But Bart dismisses it as an advertising gimmick. When the dolls take the country by storm, it turns out that Bart is the only kid at school who won't jump on the bandwagon and gets teased by the other students. Lisa claims the other kids are right to tease him due to his sexist believing but Homer fiercely disagrees with Lisa. While Marge, although agreeing with Lisa, respects Bart's position because the Lettuce Garden Children she bought for Lisa cost the family too much money which ends up putting the family at odds with each other.
