    Top 5 Simpsons Episodes

    Okay, The Simpsons clearly isn't what it used to be, and its also a prime example of a TV show that has gone on for way too long. Nevertheless, there are some classic episodes where almost every line is hilarious. Here are my Top 5

    - (I have a lot of free time on my hands) I haven't read any other top Simpsons list and this is entirely from memory basically so I've probably missed a tonne of good ones. I've obviously gone online and found the quotes though just to make sure I didn't butcher them. The list is in no particular order. I just numbered them so I don't forget how many I've done


    1. Deep Space Homer : When Homer goes into Space. There are so many classic moments and references to popular entertainment. Easily one of the most memorable for me.

    YouTube - The Simpsons - Space Chips

    Brockman: And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them as a trusted TV personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.
    Bart: Awww, they were about to show close ups of the rod
    Race: They'll clog the instruments
    Buzz: Careful, they're ruffled
    NASA Agent: I Don't understand, that was non-alcoholic champagne
    2. Homer at the Bat :Following the Nuclear power plant softball team, Mr Burns brings in a whole lot of ringers who have hilarious accidents and also includes the song, 'Talkin Softball'

    YouTube - softball song best version

    Darryl, Darryl, Darryl[/url]
    Homer: You're Darryl Strawberry?
    Darryl: Yes.
    Homer: You play right field?
    Darryl: Yes.
    Homer: I play right field too, so, are you better than me?
    Darryl: Well, I've never met you, but…yes.
    Officer Eddie: (reading Steve Sax's license) Well well, Steve Sax, from New York City.
    Officer Lou: I heard some guy got killed in New York City and they never solved the case. But you wouldn't know anything about that now, would you, Steve?
    (Lou and Eddie laugh)
    Steve Sax: But there are hundreds of unsolved murders in New York City.
    Officer Lou: You don't know when to keep your mouth shut, do you, Saxxy Boy?
    3. Trash of the titans- This is probably my favourite to be honest. Home runs for sanitation commissioner against Ray Patterson. The Candy man rip off song is so good as well.

    YouTube - The Simpsons Ray Patterson
    Bart Simpson: [over loud speaker] Hey everybody, vote for my dad, Homer Simpson. If you don't he'll beat us.
    Homer Simpson: [over loud speaker] Why you little... er... No one's gonna beat you, son.
    [under his breath, but still audible]
    Homer Simpson: You're gonna get such a beating!
    Bono: Hold on folks. The man's talking about waste management, that effects the whole damn planet!
    The Edge: Aw, here we go.
    [to Larry]
    The Edge: What do you say we slip out to Moe's for a pint?
    Adam Clayton: Can I come?
    The Edge: No.
    Adam Clayton: Wankers.
    4. Bart v. Australia - This makes my top 5 probably because the cultural references are just so funny. Always laugh when the Koala is hanging off the helicopter at the end as well.

    Marge: We have those in America. They're called bull frogs.
    Store Clerk: That's weird! I'd have called them chuzzwazzers!
    Australian with Spoon: You call that a knife?
    [the man pulls out a spoon]
    Australian with Spoon: *This* is a knife.
    Bart: [confused] That's not a knife, that's a spoon.
    Australian with Spoon: Alright, alright you win. I see you've played knifey-spoony before.
    5. You Only Move Twice - Hank Scorpio is one of my favourite guest-stars and its such a good episode with numerous Bond references

    YouTube - Hank Scorpio (Theme Song) - The Simpsons *End Credits*

    Scorpio: Good afternoon, gentlemen. This is Scorpio. I have the Doomsday Device. You have 72 hours to deliver the gold or you'll face the consequences. And to prove I'm not bluffing, watch this. [presses a button causing a bridge to blow up in the background of the screen the gentlemen are visible in]
    UN Man 1: [all the men look at the explosion] Oh My God, the Fifty-Ninth Street Bridge!
    UN Man 2: Maybe it just collapsed on its own.
    UN Man 1: We can't take that chance.
    UN Man 2: You always say that. I want to take a chance!
    Bart: So, what you in here for?
    Remiedial Child #1: I'm from Canada and everyone thinks I'm slow, eh.
    Remiedial Child #2: I fell off the jungle gym and when I woke up I was in here.
    Remiedial Child #3: I start fires!
    Probably not the most conclusive list but it's hard to narrow them down to a top five list from memory so this is the best I've come up with. Trash of the Titans is my favourite and probably has the best set of quotes.

    The Party Posse would probably be my 6th favourite but just couldn't break into the top 5.

    Was considering Lisa on Ice actually, but the whole episode isn't entirely great. Some classic moments though. Like when Wiggum bets on the other team so they can't go out for Pizza and Marge holding onto Thrillhouses teeth. It could potentially replace the Hank Scorpio episode though

    Yeah another really good episode too. The last part isn't that great though.

    Indeed, Beer baron is really good.

    I'm starting to regret my choice of Bart v Australia and Hank Scorpio now!

    There are so many. When I don't have an essay to type I'll add some more.

    Two glaring quotes missed IMO , are

    Deep Space Homer:
    Marge: But on the other hand, when you don't take advantage of an
    opportunity, you can end up regretting it for the rest of your
    life.
    Homer: You're right, Marge. Just like the time I could have met Mr. T
    at the mall. The entire day I kept saying, "I'll go a little
    later. I'll go a little later." And then when I got there, they
    told me he'd just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he
    would ever come back again, he said he didn't know. Well, I'm
    never going to let something like that happen again! I'm going
    into space right now!
    Homer at the bat:

    It's the day before the game, and Burns gives his team some final advice.
    (Darryl Strawberry chimes in sycophantically.)


    Burns: Now, before I post the starting line-up, I want to assure those of you
    whose names are not on the list... that I'm very disappointed in you.

    Homer: Please please please, I want to make the team. [catches Roger Clemens]
    Clemens, did I make the team?
    Roger: You sure did!
    Homer: I did! Woo-hoo! Woo-hoo! In your face, Strawberry!
    Roger: Wait a minute, are you Ken Griffey, Jr.?
    Homer: No.
    Roger: Sorry. Didn't mean to get your hopes up.
    LOL, I guess they're more funny for how they were said/set up.

    All the episodes where they go overseas are poor. The stereotyping is cheap & easy and is the modern equivalent of watching the Black & White Minstrels.

    However, the "That's not a knife..." gag is indeed a winner. Hilarious the first time, still chuckle.

    Scorpio episode is probably my favourite overall.

    Saw the bear one again yesterday, didn't recall it being so amazing.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    They still have some great references. The Fosters Can, the Cane toad problem.

    One of my favourites: The Way We Was (Season 2, Episode 12). Incredibly endearing and funny. If you got a spare 20-30 mins, watch it.

    I thought the Australia episode was awesome.

    That throwing stick of yours has boomeranged on us!

    Criticising the booting is a bootable offense.

    Didn't much like the ones in Japan, England or Canada though. My favourite was always the one where Homer changed his name to Max Power.
