3. Yup, one of the best episodes ever.
Edited on Sat May-02-09 02:50 AM by Drunken Irishman
Written as a jab to the Bush administration for their attacks on the show in the early 90s. I think it started when Barbara Bush said The Simpsons was the dumbest show on television and then the flames were fanned during the campaign when Bush Senior said American families needed to be more like the Waltons and less like the Simpsons. That led to an opening sketch where the family watches the speech and Bart says, "Hey, we're just like the Waltons. We're praying for an end to the Depression too."

The lesson from all of this? Don't cross The Simpsons.

:rofl:

8. Funny how that episode created the best one-off background character ever.
"Disco Stu doesn't advertise!"

10. The episode where the family goes skiing...
And Marge decides to sit it out. She's in the lodge resting when Stu sees her and begins walking toward her.

Stu: Snow fox at five o'clock. Movin' in, show that I'm, Disco Lady. Is this seat taken?

Marge: Uh, I think that's an armrest.

Stu: So, do you party?

Marge: You mean like a hats and noisemakers kind of party?

Stu: Sure, baby, whatever your trip is. Disco Stu wants you to be comfortable while he does his thing.

Marge: Who's Disco Stu?

At this point, Bart and Lisa run into the lodge and toward Marge.

Bart/Lisa: Hey, Mom!

Marge: Hi, pumpkins.

Stu realizes this and begins backing away.

Stu: Back away, not today, Disco Lady.

:rofl:

4. Flashbacks of 1979.
I remember the Khomeini toilet paper and t-shirts during the hostage crises.

7. Classic episode.
Portraying George H.W. Bush as Mr. Wilson to Bart's Dennis the Menace? Classic.

9. And Gerald Ford as a dumber Homer...
Which is true. I always thought of Ford as a Homer. A nice guy with good intentions, but dumb as wood.
