With over 400 episodes, I think nearly everyone must enjoy one episode or another. Although the writing, and animation really seemed to decline in the last few years, it seems to be the best shows on the television, and I'm really gonna miss it when it's gone.

What was your favorite episode? Give a brief summary of it, and why.

I think mine might be the one where Bart says he doesn't believe in a soul. He sells it to Milhouse for 5 dollars, but soon Bart is almost not even a real person, things ignore him, and he gets really depressed. He tries to buy it back from Milhouse, and later Comic Book Guy, but neither have it. He prays to God for his soul back, and how much he needs it, even though its just a piece of paper with his "soul" on it. After desperately praying, it seems to come out of no where, and land on his bed. It turns out Lisa bought it with her piggy bank money.

I love this episiode. It was really when the Simpsons were in there prime, and it has something that I miss from the newer episodes. Although it's comedy, and a cartoon it has a moral, but it's done in a subtle way. The simpsons are just an everage family, but a soul is something everyone has, and can't live without, and like other early simpsons episodes God plays a big part, like where it's just Bart against the world, he prays, and his prayers were answered, Bart learns a lesson, and is still a good person, but not necessarily the "ideal" Christian. A lot of early episodes were like this.

Sorry if I bored you, but what are your favorites?

Lisa Gets an A with Pinchy the Lobster.
Who's ready for a copy/pasted Wikipedia summary?

After yet another long morning at church, the Simpsons go to a grocery store (Eatie Gourmet's) to take advantage of free samples in lieu of a Sunday brunch. At the store, Homer wants to buy a lobster, but since the larger ones are too expensive he decides to buy a small one and fatten him up before he, in his words, "eats the profits". Homer also tries to look for normal flavors of ice cream among the unusually titled flavors of the "Ken & Harry's" factory plant, so he decides to put Lisa into the freezer to look for some in the back, which ultimately results in her getting a cold. Marge wants Lisa to stay home from school for the next few days to recover from her cold. At home, Lisa gets addicted to one of Bart's video games, ignoring the homework on The Wind in the Willows that she is given by Ralph. When Lisa returns to school there's a test on the book. Having not read the book, she is not prepared for the test, and when she asks Bart for advice, he brings her to Nelson from whom she gets the test answers. Miss Hoover grades the tests over lunch, and Lisa is awarded the rare grade of A+++ (it was written with four plusses, but the fourth plus was a stain of Drambuie).

Meanwhile, Homer has become attached to his Lobster and names him Pinchy. When it comes time to cook Pinchy, Homer cannot bring himself to do it, and instead, declares him a part of the family now.

The family is extremely proud of Lisa's "achievement", much to the chagrin of her guilt-ridden conscience. The next day at school, Principal Skinner informs Lisa that her test grade has brought Springfield Elementary's GPA up to the State's minimum standard, and they now qualify for a basic assistance grant. Lisa confesses that she cheated on the test and Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers both agree it would be best to keep this a secret in order to keep the money. Although Lisa confesses during the grant money presentation assembly, the school manages to keep the money, as Principal Skinner anticipated Lisa would confess, and staged a phony presentation before the real one (even going as far as to allow Bart in on the plan.). At home, after getting dirty playing in the yard, Pinchy is put in a hot bath by Homer, and unfortunately Pinchy is boiled alive. Homer sadly eats Pinchy all by himself while his family looks on.

Homer: You know, Marge, I've had my share of troubles, but sitting here now with you and the kids in our cozy home in this beautiful free country...it just makes me feel that I'm really a lucky guy.

Lisa: Dad! Your hand is jammed in the toaster!

Homer: Aah! Get it off! Get it off! Get it off of me! (throws the toaster off his hand, sighs, slumps down to floor)

Bart: Dad! It's in there again!

"Take this object, but beware it carries a terrible curse!"
"Oh, that's bad."
"But it comes with a free frogurt!"
"That's good."
"The frogurt is also cursed."
"That's bad."
"But you get your choice of toppings."
"That's good."
"The toppings contain potassium benzoate."
"..."
"That's bad."

And Lionel Hutz is the best Simpsons character ever, no doubt.

"He's had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog... Actually, replace accidentally with 'repeatedly' and 'dog' with 'son'."

"Well, your honour, we've plenty of hearsay and conjecture. Those are kinds of evidence."


Ahh, the days when The Simpsons used to be good. Almost untouchable at it's best.

I love the bowling episode. Especially the bit in the kitchen:

Bart: 'That sucks.'
Marge: 'Bart! Where did you learn that kind of language?"
Homer (On the phone): 'I tell ya Mo, that team last night sucked, I mean they really sucked, they must have been the suckiest bunch of suckers who ever sucked."

It's simple but brilliant.

Ralph: Me fail English? That’s unpossible.

Homer: When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun.

Homer: Fame was like a drug. But what was even more like a drug were the drugs.

"Grandpa, are you sitting on the apple pie?"
Abe: "I sure hope so."

Or another amazing one.

Homer: "SO Malloy.....it seems the Cat Burglar was caught by the very person that was trying to catch him"
Moe: "How ironic"
What have we learned.....
