    Bart: April Foools

    Lou: That sounded like an explosion at the old Simpson place.

    Chief Wiggum: Forget it. That's two blocks away.

    Lou: Looks like there's beer coming out of the chimney.

    Chief Wiggum: I am proceeding on foot. Call in a code 8.

    Lou: [on the radio] We need pretzels. Repeat, pretzels.

    Might as well post this here. But there is a little uproar accordingly about an episode that aired in the states a few months ago and that which aired last weekend on Sky One.

    It's a flashback episode to where Homer is a teenager in the 90s. So Home-boy is now a millennial. It also means Homer is "younger" than Bart as Bart was 10 when the show started in 1989.

    Now, let's get the obvious out of the way. It's a show. It's a cartoon. It's not real :pac:

    But it is silly when you look back on some of the classic bits in the Simpsons. Like when homer:

    "When I was seventeen,
    I drank some very good beer,
    I drank some very good beer
    I purchased with a fake ID.
    My name was Brian McGee,
    I stayed up listenin' to Queen
    When I was seventeen."
    ... While Abe watches the moonlanding on TV. So homer was a 60s teenager.

    Then a couple of years ago they did another flashback episode how Homer and Marge first meet Ned back in the late 90s. Homer and Marge are meant to be late 20s.

    Again, it's just a show :pac: but make of that what you will.

    I think it's been a mistake for them to even re-visit Homer & Marge's past as time moved on. For a show that was maybe going to manage 10-ish seasons it would have been alright, but since we might hit 40(!) seasons they are just asking for weirdness here. They should really avoid any "past" that takes place in a year when The Simpsons was actually airing. Otherwise how is Maggie not in her 30's now?

    It's a silly sitcom so strict cannon and logic are optional...but it stopped being fun years ago and lately I do't even watch new episodes because it's borderline upsetting to see the state of the modern show. Doing weird stuff like pushing the "past" forward is harder to ignore when what you're getting in return is not even enjoyable.

    Lisa: Dad, as you know, we’ve been swimming. And we’ve developed a taste for it. We both agree that getting our own pool is the only way to go. Now before you respond, you must understand that your refusal would result in months and months of—

    Lisa and Bart: “Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad?”

    Homer: I understand. Let us celebrate our new arrangement by the adding of chocolate to milk.

    Lionel Hutz : Mrs. Simpson, you're in luck. Your sexual harassment suit is exactly what I need to help rebuild my shattered practice. Care to join me in a belt of scotch?

    Marge : It's 9:30 in the morning.

    Lionel Hutz : Yeah, but I haven't slept in days.

    And that's the greatest thing ever written. Are you crazy? I can't believe a play where every character is murdered could be so boring!

    Son, it's not only a great play, but also became a great movie called Ghostbusters.

    Saw a rare gem yesterday, a later season episode that had so many good quotes in it:

    Homer: Marge, remember when we were talking about our worst fears?
    Marge: Uh-huh.
    Homer: And mine was snakes, and yours was...?
    Marge: Never being a grandmother.
    Homer: Really? I thought it was Lisa with a beard of bees. Well, whatever, brace yourself.


    ----

    Moe: Listen, Homer: in the back room, I got these super-tough Africanized bees. I saw this ad in a gentleman's magazine for excited African honeys and that's what they sent me. If we could combine them with Lisa's bees, it would make them strong enough to survive any environment.
    Homer: But how are we supposed to combine the DNA of two strains of the same species?
    Moe: Actually, Homer... [whispers]
    Homer: [gasps] You and me?
    Moe: No, the bees!
    Homer: Oh, yeah, yeah, that's what I meant, too. I... have no... inclination.
