The Simpsons are going to a park, but when they arrive, they find that mosquitos have gone crazy and have taken over. While driving back, they find an Indian casino and stop by. Bart tries to sneak in, but is caught by the casino's manager. To teach Bart a lesson, he gives Bart a glimpse of himself in the year 2030 (although it is never referred to as "2030" during the episode, only that it is thirty years in the future).
BOUNCER: No minors.
BART: Yeah, but I really want--
HOMER: Sorry, son. Although they seem strange to us, we must respect the ways of the Indian.
MANAGER: [on phone] Your linen service has broken many promises to us. Laundry bill soar like eagle.
[hangs up] Jerk.
[walks over to Bart] So, you like to sneak into casinos?
BART: I wasn't going to gamble. I just wanted a Bloody Mary.
MANAGER: Listen to me. Unless you change your deceitful ways. I foresee a life bitterness and failure for you, Bart Simpson.
BART: How'd you know my name?
MANAGER: [holds up a legal document] Your father just took out a second mortgage downstairs. You're listed as collateral.
BART: Oh. I thought that maybe you were some kind of Indian mystic who could tell the future?
MANAGER: Who says I'm not?
MANAGER: If you want to see the future, throw a treasured personal item onto the fire.
[Bart tosses a small object, which explodes with a bang]
MANAGER: Not a firecracker!
BART: Hey, I bought it from a guy on your reservation.
MANAGER: That's Crazy Talk.
BART: No, it's true.
MANAGER: No, I know, that's my brother, Crazy Talk. We're all a little worried about him.
BART: I guess I am an embarrassment.
BILLY CARTER: You sure are. And hey, there's an embarrassment of riches at the Caesar's Pow Wow Indian Casino. You can bet on it! [winks and fans a deck of cards]
[cut to the present]
BART: You put an ad in my vision?
MANAGER: Yeah, Crazy Talk came up with that. He got idea from Dances With Focus Groups.
Conclusion: "Bart to the Future" wasn't the worst Simpsons episode ever, but it was average at best. But it sure beats the South Park episode on Indian gaming.
Like most TV shows, The Simpsons is willing to tackle Indian gaming and satirize Indians. Like most shows, it's unwilling to do the same for blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Jews, and other minorities. Only Indians are fair game, it seems.
