The Simpson family is introduced to Fat Tony's son, Michael, while carpooling and Lisa quickly befriends the quiet boy after all of the other kids avoid him. As a sign of gratitude, Fat Tony has the Simpsons over for dinner and is shockingly gunned down by a rival family moments after Michael tells his father that he would rather be a chef than take over the family business. After Michael turns down the gang’s offer to be the new kingpin, Homer steps up and leads his family on a mob spree. Michael can’t bear to see what the Simpsons have become and invites the rival family over for a surrender dinner where he poisons the food and returns power to his family.
