Best Simpsons season

I have just started watching Season 3 of the Simpsons and there have generally been too many laugh out loud moments to remember. One from last night was where marge and homer went to a marriage counselling course with the reverent from the local church and Flanders and Maude were there.

Reverent: What seems to be the problem Ned?

Ned: Sometimes Maude (God bless her), she underlines passages in <my> Bible because she can't find hers.

Homer: [mutters] Oh. Lucky they don't keep guns in the house.

:lol:

I stopped buying seasons after they got to 10, but it's always great going through those early ones again.

I think my all time favourite episode is Homer the Smithers, purely for this bit of dialogue;

Homer: Okay Mr. Burns Here are your messages: "You have thirty minutes to move your car." "You have ten minutes to move your car." "Your car has been impounded." "Your car has been crushed into a cube." "You have thirty minutes to move your cube"

*Phone rings*

Hello?

Mr. Burns: Is it about my cube?

Gets me every single time. The delivery is perfect.

One of my most favourite lines ever is from Homer, where he's at a picnic or something and stands up and addresses those at the table and says:

"If I could just say a few words… I'd be a better public speaker.

It's the timing, the intonation, Bart's reaction...it's absolutely perfect (and works much better seeing it rather than my potted description).

The cube one above is good, too.

The first season is so incredible. I was so young when it came out so I can't look back objectively but it must have knocked people out stone cold re: their expectations of a cartoon.

We used to have Sky at work when it was new on and not that funny but about a year later people would send me links to wav files and would just be crying it was so funny, even when you didn't know the context

Close eyes and enjoy this

Season 3 Episode 11 for me Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk

The episode where the power plant gets sold to the Germans.

Everyone getting a fat bonus apart from Homer

Mr Burns mocking the Germans

The land of chocalate scene

Na na na, Na na na wayheyhey goodbye

So much goodness in that one episode.

For years now one of my absolute favourite episodes is from Series 8, El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer. Johnny Cash as the Coyote is brilliant but it opens so fantastically, Homer's whining about missing the chili cookoff is priceless. It's the way he panics.

I'm afraid you are all wrong, this is the best exchange. It loses something written down but it is just the way the whole scene leads up to it and the response from Marge without batting an eyelid that makes it so funny:

Lisa: Mom, you fuss over us way to much!

Marge: Enjoy it now, because when you're a grown up you'll have to take care of yourself!

Homer: *scared* Maarge. There's a spider near my car keys.

Marge: You did the right thing by telling me. Shoo! Get out of here.

Homer: Ah, that's better!

Homer: You know I can't learn new things. Remember when I took that wine making course and forgot how to drive?

Marge: You were drunk!

Homer: And how...

My two favourite scenes are:

Sergeant: Simpson! I don't like you and you don't like me!

Homer: I like you.

Sergeant: Oh, comedian, eh!?

Homer: No, but I do a pretty mean Columbo - (Homer pulls stupid Columbo style face and gurgles.)

And:

Bart: Why have you brought me to a gay steel mill?

Homer (crying): I don't know.

In fact the gay steel mill sequence is maybe the funniest thing I have ever seen.

"We work hard. We play hard!" EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!

Absolute genius.

I know things had started to go very wrong by season 10, but this just perfect:

At home, Homer and Marge fold laundry. Homer hands Marge a ball of socks.

HOMER

Okay, I rolled up all the socks, what's next?

MARGE

(groans) While I deal with this, why don't you start on that basket?

HOMER

All right... oh, I hate folding sheets.

MARGE

That's your underwear.

HOMER

Well, whatever it is, it's a two man job. Where's Bart?

MARGE

He's up in his room. (calls upstairs) Bart!

HOMER

It's okay, Marge, I'll get him. (yelling very loudly) Bart!!!

LISA

(walking in) What the heck's going on?

MARGE

We need Bart to help fold your father's underpants. Where is he, anyway?

LISA

Bart? Uh, he went to play with a friend.

MARGE

He didn't go to Nelson's, did he?

LISA

No, no. I'm pretty sure he's with Milhouse.

....then:

Any early scene with Lionel Hutz is the best.

Even typing his name just made me laugh IRL. How did they do that? It's so perfect for the character.

I think this might be my favourite ever Simpsons joke:

In fact, pretty much all of Homer's conversations with his brain are fantastic:

Even if it's not the best season, it's pretty much the best episode ever.

- brilliant use of music, referencing and soundtracking throughout

- the chili trip (obv.)

- Cash's brilliant vocal work, toeing the lines of reassuring wisdom and humour brilliantly (RIP)

- "Sorry Homer -- I am a coyote" after knawing at Homer's leg

- post-trip Homer commenting on real world things that he saw during the trip

- "Hey! There's no such thing as a talking dog!"

- Homer actually being called out on being a jerk to Marge

- all the differing levels of "friendship" that others have with Homer when he asks them at the bar

- ...concluded by Moe's line ("I'm a well-wisher, and I don't wish you any specific harm")

And, of course, the lovely realisation he and Marge are soulmates.
