Chalmers Takes Us Back to 'The Breakfast Club' on 'The Simpsons' (VIDEO)

'The Breakfast Club' - 'The Simpsons'When Bart Simpson pranks a fundraising event, Principal Skinner challenges Superintendent Chalmers to try educating the perennial troublemaker on 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on FOX). In the heat of the moment, Chalmers accepts, but is immediately consumed with self-doubt.

That doubt takes us to a flashback of the last time he was a teacher, which was apparently in Shermer High School back in 1985, as we saw him stepping into the library of 'The Breakfast Club.' Except, even though their faces were familiar, they said they were the Fight Club and proceeded to give him a beatdown the likes of which both Brad Pitt and Edward Norton would have been proud of.

In the end, Chalmers' manly approach to getting through to boys today worked wonders with the students, but inevitably ended with him being him sued by a mother when one of the boys got injured, and ultimately fired -- though Bart and the kids were able to recover his job by taking over the school. Our litigious society strikes again!
