The Great Louse Detective - S14-E6

Corrected entry: Earlier in "Day of the Jackanapes", Sideshow Bob was sentenced to be beheaded at the end of the episode. So, how is it that he is alive and serving time at the Campbell's Soup prison?

Correction: Bob wasn't sentenced to be beheaded, Chief Wiggum just decided that. At the end of DOTJ, Bob asks 'Isn't it customary to have a trial?' to which Wiggum replies, 'Oh, a wise guy, huh?' It's most likely that Bob was granted the chance to have a trial and that he was thrown in a max-security prison rather than given the death penalty.

The Great Louse Detective - S14-E6

Corrected entry: When Sideshow Bob says that he hasn't made any progress on catching the person who is trying to kill Homer, he says, "Go ahead, shock me." and hands Marge the shocking remote. Sideshow Bob has been trying to get the remote ever since he was introduced into the episode. Why, if he has it, does he give it to Marge instead of taking it and trying to kill Bart, which he does at the end of the episode?

Correction: Bob probably thought that he hasn't really done anything wrong so they will take pity and leave shocking him, but they decide to anyway. It just furthers the joke that he can't stop the Simpsons, no matter how well behaved he was, from shocking him. In regard to killing Bart, it was being at Moe's with Lenny & Carl's suggestion about how to kill Bart that sparked him into trying to kill Bart. In the episode we saw Bob was preoccupied with helping Homer and being given the simple idea later on sparked him into action.
