"Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington" is the second episode of The Simpsons third season. It first started on the Fox network in the United States on September 26, 1991. In this episode, Lisa enters in an essay contest to write an essay about "America's greatness." When she successfully wins it, she and the family go to Washington, D.C. where the finals are to be held. Lisa is sad after witnessing a "bribery scandal" in the Senate. In her final essay, she disdains and condemns the government system, which leads to the arrest of the "corrupt congressman" who accepted the bribe. While Lisa fails to win the contest, her faith in government is back.
