Warning: wikipedia contains spoilers

Synopsis Miss Krabappel's class is subjected to an IQ test; Martin finishes early and mocks Bart; Bart finishes last but swaps his test with Martin's and changes the names. Bart is then declared a genius and sent to a separate school. Homer and Marge are suddenly more attentive and supportive of Bart, yet after being conned out of his lunch and causing a large green explosion from mixing an acid with a base, Bart becomes discouraged and confesses that he is not really a genius. Bart is returned to his old school, where he is scorned for being intelligent; when he tells Homer that he lied on the test, Homer chases him through the house and Lisa comments that Bart is not a genius anymore.
