"Barting Over" is the eleventh episode of the fourteenth season of The Simpsons, advertised by Fox, and indicated on-screen to be the 300th episode of the show. It aired on February 16, 2003.

In retaliation, Bart petitions the court to be legally emancipated and move out of the house. This was also the episode where Bart strangled Homer for the first time.
