This Week’s KSK Commenter Draft – Desert Island Simpsons Episodes

I don’t watch “The Simpsons” as much as I used to, although last week’s episode was easily one of the best I’ve seen in the past 5 years, if not longer. But it’s no secret that every member of the Gay Mafia is a card-carrying Simpsons geek. Hell, Christmas Ape barely acknowledges anything that comes in three dimensions. Fuck, if you’ve never watched “The Simpsons”, then you have absolutely no business trying to make jokes (though Jimmy Kimmel will certainly hire you for a brief period).

We had a brief rundown yesterday of our favorite episodes, and no two answers were alike. So we thought we’d open today’s draft up to you, considering the show hits its 400th episode on Sunday night. These are the episodes of the show you’d want with you if you were trapped on a desert island (with a functioning DVD player and electrical power generator). The rules, as always: Pick only one episode, and once you pick, you must wait ten choices until you get to pick again. Oh, and be sure to include favorite quotes as well.

My favorite:

“Last Exit To Springfield.”

Honestly it’s fucking flawless. Even with Lisa’s singing. Want some examples?

“Dental plan!”
“Why must you turn my office into a house of lies?”
“I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time.”
“Don Homer, I make a special donut for a you.”

Sheer brilliance. Yours in the comments.

The Mysterious Voyage of Homer (Chili Cook Off)

Too many quotes to pick just one.

Lenny: (after Homer brandishes his spoon) They say he carved it himself... from a bigger spoon.

Homer: Man, this is crazy. I hope I didn't brain my damage.

Homer: Note to self: stop doing anything.

Moe: I'm a well-wisher, in that I don't wish you any specific harm.

Homer the Clown - Greatest episode of them all. "I'm seein' double here, four Krustys" "Clown College, you can't eat that." "That's it, you people have stood in my way long enough.

I was hoping the college episode would slide to the second round. I'll go with the hockey episode of "Lisa on Ice"

"Me fail English? That's unpossible!"

"Ralph Wiggum lost his shin guard. Hack the bone! Hack the bone!"

"Mr. Honeybunny! You inhuman monster."

"But Blanche, you gotta help me out here, please! I'm 64 grand in the hole! They're going to take my thumbs!"

Bart: You could brush your teeth with milkshakes!

Dr. Nick: Hey, did you go to Hollywood Upstairs Medical College too?

Bart Gets an Elephant

Homer: guess it wouldn't be right to sell Stampy after he saved my
life. And the boy seems to have some sort of relationship with him.

Bart: Thanks, Dad.

Homer: On the other hand, who's to say what's right these days, what
with all our modern ideas...and products?

Lisa the Tree Hugger.

Homer: Have a good time at your hippie club.
Lisa: You're welcome to come, too.
Homer: No, I like to save the environment my own way. (drives in circles) Mmm ... donuts

Orson Swindle said...

"Missionary Impossible." Homer pledges 10 grand to save "Do Shut Up," his favorite Britcom, and winds up running off to an island to be a missionary when Lovejoy shelters him in the church.

This episode gets the nod for the following reasons:

1. Oscar the grouch is thrown through a stained glass window, can and all.

2. Homer destroys a primitive culture by introducing gambling.

3. Homer says "Help me Jeebus."

4. Homer licks toads and trips balls through the first ten minutes of the episode.

For short punch: "In Marge We Trust." It's the one with the Mr. Sparkle ad at the end. I have never laughed harder, not even at the "Standing Outside the Fire" video by Garth Brooks.

Peter McSheisty said...

This is a reach pick for a first rounder since it came in the 16th season but I cant let it slip away. Im going to go with Midnight Rx (Candadian drugs). The scene where Apu drinks the hot coffee while trying to cross the border.

Also the scene where they are all bouncing around in slow motion, with pills everywhere, to Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit". Classic.

the max power ep is called "Homer To The Max"

Homer: Wow. They captured my personality perfectly! Did you see
the way Daddy caught that bullet?
Lisa: That's not really you, Dad, he's just a fictional character
who happens to have the same name.
Homer: [long pause] Don't confuse Daddy, Lisa.
Marge: Homer, it's just a coincidence. Like that guy named Anthony
Michael Hall who stole your car stereo?
Bart: Right ... coincidence.

"Homer: Bad Man"

Mmmm.... gummy Venus.

Homer's Phobia -- the one where Homer thinks Bart might be gay

Homer: Ohmygod Ohmygod Ohmygod! Oh my god! I danced with a gay! Marge, Lisa, promise me you won't tell anyone. [shaking Lisa] Promise me!!
Marge: You're being ridiculous.
Homer: Am I, Marge? Am I? Think of the property values. Now we can never say only straight people have been in this house.
Marge: I'm very sorry you feel that way, because John invited us all out for a drive today, and we're going.
Homer: Woah-ho-ho, not me! And not because John's gay, but because he's a sneak. He should at least have the good taste to mince around and let everyone know that he's... that way.
Marge: What on Earth are you talking about?
Homer: You know me, Marge. I like my beer cold, my TV loud and my homosexuals fa-laming

There are really too many great episodes to pick one, but I'll mention the one where Homer almost cheats on Marge with a hot coworker (voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer). And sorry, I don't have a quote from that one. It's been awhile since I've seen it. But one of my favorite Homer quotes is:

Homer the Vigilante

[They come upon Jimbo who is spray painting "carpe diem" on a wall.]

Homer: You better have a good reason for doing that, boy.
Jimbo: It makes me feel like a big man.
Homer: Let me check my reason list. ...Yep! It's on here.
Jimbo: Hey! You're that drunken posse. Wow...can I join ya?
Homer: [skeptical] I don't know...can you swing a sack of door knobs?
Jimbo: _Can_ I?
Homer: You're in! Here's the sack.
Moe: But you gotta supply your own knobs.

[That night at dinner, Homer relates his antics to the rest of the family.]

Homer: So I said to him, "Look, buddy, your car was upside down when we got here. And as for your Grandma, she shouldn't have mouthed
off like that!"
Lisa: Dad, don't you see you're abusing your power like all vigilantes? I mean, if you're the police, who will police the police?
Homer: I dunno. Coast Guard?
Marge: Homer, wasn't the whole point to catch the Cat Burglar?
Lisa: And I still don't have my saxophone.
Homer: Lisa, the mob is working on getting your saxophone back. But
we've also expanded into other important areas. [reads a list] Literacy programs, preserving our beloved covered bridges, world
domination --
Lisa: World domination?
Homer: Oh ho, heh, that might be a typo. [thinks] Mental note: the girl knows too much.

Herman: See, it's a miniature version of the A-Bomb. The government built it in the fifties to drop on beatniks.
[Homer imagines a beatnik on the grass with a bongo]
Beatnik: Radiant cool, crazy nightmare Zen New Jersey nowhere...
[A group of beatniks snap their fingers in time]
[Homer flies overhead in a plane]
Homer: Put this in your pipe and smoke it! [Presses a button, but the A-Bomb doesn't fall]
Beatnik: How now, brown bureaucrat?
[Homer jumps on the bomb, and it falls with him still on it. He cheers as though he's riding a bronco]
[It explodes, bringing us back to reality] Take that, Maynard G. Krebs!
Herman: Hey...see the sign? ["Do not ride the bomb"]
Homer: Sorry.

Abe: I'll join! I'm filled with piss and vinegar. At first I
was just filled with vinegar.
Homer: Hmm...sorry, Dad. You're too old.
Abe: [stammers] Too old? Why, that just means I have experience.
Who chased the Irish out of Springfield village in aught
four? Me, that's who!

Lisa: Would you do me a favor? When you get back to class, just
give him this note.

Milhouse: [groans]

Lisa: [insistent] Please?

Milhouse: [thinking] When she sees you'll do anything she says, she's
bound to respect you. [aloud] Sure! What's a big sister for? [walks off]
[to himself] Oh... I shouldn't have said that.

Back in class, the note is passed to Nelson.

Nelson: [reading] "Guess who likes you." [turns around]
[Milhouse wiggles his fingers at him]

Next thing he knows, Milhouse is rushed out the school on a gurney,
his glasses wrecked and his nose leaking a stream of blood.

Lisa: Milhouse, I'm so sorry!

Paramedic: He can't hear you now. We had to pack his ears with gauze.

Carl: "Break it's legs so it won't get away!

Homer: The alien has a sweet, heavenly voice ... like Urkel! And he appears every Friday night ... like Urkel!

sick draft:
1. You Only Move Twice
2. Homer to the Max
3. Deep Space Homer
4. City of NY vs. Homer Simpson
5. Lisa's First Word

i mean come on, the scorpio episode has such a great football moment in it too

Homer: [reading] Project Arcturus couldn't have succeeded without you. This will get you a little closer to that dream of yours. It's not the Dallas Cowboys, but it's a start. Drop me a line if you're on the East Coast, Hank Scorpio. [stops reading] Aw, the Denver Broncos!
Marge: I think owning the Denver Broncos is pretty good.
Homer: Yeah, yeah.
Marge: Well, explain to me why it isn't.
Homer: [sighs] You just don't understand football, Marge

as well as these other gems

Hank: Don't call me that word. I don't like things that elevate me above the other people. I'm just like you. Oh sure, I come in later in the day, I get paid a lot more, and I take longer vacations, but I don't like the word "boss."

Scorpio: Hey, before we continue our tour, would you mind hanging my coat up on the wall please?
Homer: Mmmhmm. Umuhh now let’s see now. Uuummm.
Scorpio: Ahaha. Relax, Homer, at Globex we don’t believe in walls. In fact, I didn't even give you my coat!

Scorpio: There's the Hammock Hut. That's on Third. There's Hammocks 'R' Us. That's on Third, too. You got Put Your Butt There. That's on Third. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot. Matter of fact they're all in the same complex. It's the Hammock Complex, down on Third.

I didn't see this so far, so I think I got quite a steal: Grandpa vs. Sexual Inadequacy

Al Gore: Then I believe that it is time to celebrate. (he plays the song 'Celebrate') I will.

The War of the Simpsons

Marge tells Homer that "he blows his nose on towels and puts them back in the middle"

bottom-dwelling fury, don't you know. No one knows how old he is, but
if you ask me (and most people do), he's hundred years if he's a day.
Customer: And uh no one's ever caught him?
Clerk: Well, one fella came close. Went by the name of Homer. Seven feet
tall he was, with arms like tree trunks. His eyes were like steel,
cold, hard. Had a shock of hair, red like the fires of Hell.

For my 3rd pick, I select Mr X episode

Nelson: Hey, Mr. "X", I've got a tip for you. They're dissecting
frozen hobos in Science class. And I've got the bindles to prove it.
Homer: Real news is great, son, But I'm getting a thousand hits
an hour with Grade-A bullplop.

Homer #2: Ja, please forgive my unexplained two-week absence. To make it up to you, we will go out to dinner at a sensibly priced restaurant, then have a night of
efficient German sex.
Marge: Well, I sure don't feel like cooking.

Mr Furious said...

Late in, but this draft is deep—I'll take "New Kid on the Block [9F06]"

TV Guide synopsis
The Simpsons' new neighbors are a divorcée (Pamela Reed) and her 15-year-old daughter (Sara Gilbert), who captures---and breaks---Bart's heart. Meanwhile, Homer sues when a restaurant denies him ``all you can eat.''

The main plot with Bart and his crush is great enough, but the subplot nets me Lionel Hutz and the Sea Captain!

Choice quotes:
"'Tis no man. 'Tis a remorseless eating machine."

Homer pays a visit to Lionel Hutz's "I Can't Believe It's a Law Firm'':
Hutz: Mr. Simpson, this is the most blatant case of fraudulent advertising since my suit against the film, "The Never-Ending Story''.
Homer: So, do you think I have a case?
Hutz: I don't use the word hero very often, but you are the greatest hero in American history.
Homer: Woo-hoo!

"Now my shirt's kinda chaffing me..."


I cannot believe how long "Lisa the Greek" went undrafted...

Mr Furious said...

Gil: Go ahead, drool all you want, you can't hurt that finish. Now rainwater, that will strip it right off, so ... aw, I shouldn't have said that ... aw, Gil.
Homer: Hey, a red one. [runs to a red Canyonero] Can I buy that? Please?
Gil: Well, if you, well ... really? Wow, Hot, hot dog! A sale! [goes to put a little Canyonero marker, indicating a sale, on a bulletin board]

Gil: No, wait, no. Aw, you can't take my sale. My wife's going to leave me if I don't start bringing in the green. Come on, let me have this one, Stan, I'm begging you. Look at me, I'm begging you, Stan.
Stan: Mm-hm. [walks Homer to his office] Let's go write this up, shall we?
Gil: [pulls a rotary-dial cell phone from his jacket, and dials] Honey, you should have seen me with my last customer, I ... no, but I came so close. This guy was as ... Whose voice is that? Is that Fred? ... Aw, you said it was over ... No, don't put him on -- Hello, Fred, h-hi.

Brother from the Same Planet, Season 4.

Bart: Dad, remember when Tom had you in that headlock and you screamed "I'm a hemophiliac" and when he let you go, you kicked him in the back?
Homer: Heh heh heh. Yeah?
Bart: Will you teach me how to do that?
Homer: Sure, boy. First, you gotta shriek like a woman and keep sobbing until he turns away in disgust. That's when it's time to kick some back!

Signal to Noise said...

Burnsy - dammit. This is what I get for being on Pacific time; having to wade through a bunch of episodes everyone's already picked.

Otto, what's with the "Go back to Massachussetts"? Something I'm missing there? Because I cannot believe you'd blow the quote...

By the way, to this day, anytime I or anybody else mentions gazpacho, I break out the "Go back to Russia!"

You don't win friends with salad!

"There's No Disgrace Like Home"--the family shock therapy episode.

Homer:Okay, now look. My Boss is going to be at this picnic, so I want you to show your father some love and or respect.

Hasn't been 10 picks but I'd trade up for this one... A Star is Burns ( where Marge organizes a film festival and Critic cameo...

Barney: [from his film Pukahontas] Don't cry for me... I'm already dead.

Homer: [laughing hysterically] This contest is over! Give that man the $10,000.
Jay: This isn't "America's Funniest Home Videos".
Homer: But...the ball! His groin! Ah ha! It works on so many levels! [laughs more] Roll it again.

Burns: Get me Steven Spielberg!
Smithers: He's unavailable.
Burns: Then get me his non-union Mexican equivalent! [later] Listen, Senor Spielbergo, I want you to do for me what Spielberg did for Oskar Schindler.
Spielbergo: Er, Schindler es bueno, Senor Burns es el diablo.
Burns: Listen, Spielbergo, Schindler and I are like peas in a pod: we're both factory owners, we both made shells for the Nazis, but mine worked, dammit! Now go out there and win me that festival!

burnsy, I was about to grab that one—number one on my board—but somebody above just grabbed it.

Otto, maybe he read from the bottom up.

Furious, I'll trade it to you for your sixth round pick this week and your second round pick next week.

Mr Furious said...


My mistake, the Branson, Missouri reference above is for a different episode. Damn! That makes "Bart on the Road" yours...

Mr Furious said...

"Grammar rodeo? We're going to a grammar rodeo?"

[OT: the fucking word verification is really pissing me off today. Anybody else having to post everything two times?]

For my 3rd pick, I am selecting Maximum Homerdrive.

Red: Red Barclay's my name. I'm a trucker, and I've eaten steaks from coast to coast with taters and toast. Take my advice -- this one's not for greenhorns.

Homer: Greenhorn? Who's a greenhorn? What's a greenhorn?

Bart: It's an insult! Sock him, Dad! Sock everybody!

Homer: Aw, you're just jealous because you don't have the belly for it anymore, Mr. No-Belly. [pokes Red in his ample
belly] Mr. Hasn't-Got-A-Belly.

Red: Well, I have just finished a whole lamb, but, uh, I reckon
I can take you to school. You're on, boy.

The Cartridge Family(

Starts off at a soccer game...

Marge: Homer, we've got to get out of here!
Homer: Ooh, but I want to do some rioting. [pushes one of the Scotsmen]
Scotsman: [turns to face Homer, screaming] Jobbers cobknots, ya mucker!
Homer: All done! [runs off]

Gun Shop Owner: Sorry, the law requires a five-day waiting period. We've got to run a background check.
Homer: Five days? But I'm mad now!
% The owner finally pulls the gun away from Homer.
Homer: I'd kill you if I had my gun!
Gun Shop Owner: Yeah, well, you don't.

lucas said...

Aww shit, I've got to go. In the spirit of cheating, I will now select my final two and go.

-Good-bye, Adil! I'll send you those civil defense plans you Wanted!

-Whenever my faith in God is shaken, I think of the miracle of anti-freeze.

Marge: You didn't have to drop me off.
Jacques: But I wanted to. [grasps her hand] Marge, do you know how beautiful you look in the moonlight?
Marge: Errrr, Jacques! I'm a married woman!
Jacques: I know, I know. My mind says stop, but my heart, and my hips, cry proceed. Marge darling, I - I want to
see you tomorrow. Not at Barney's Bowlorama, away from the thunderous folly of clattering pins. Meet me tomorrow for Brunch.
Marge: What's Brunch?
Jacques: You'd love it, It's not quite breakfast, it's not quite lunch, but it comes with a slice of cantaloupe at the end. You don't get
completely what you would at breakfast, but you get a good meal!

So to recap:
1. Blame it on Lisa
2. The Last Temptation of Homer
3. Maximum Homerdrive
4. The Crepes of Wrath
5. Life on the Fast Lane

A solid draft here. One featuring every major member of the family, homer almost cheating on marge, marge almost cheating on homer, death, trucks, and the mocking of two countries worthy of said mockery.

My draft is magnificent.

Homer the Smithers

Homer: Here are your messages. You have thirty minutes to move your car. You have ten minutes. Your car has been impounded. Your car has been crushed into a cube. You have thirty minutes to move your cube.
(Phone Rings)
Homer: Hello, Mr. Burns' office.
Burns: Is it about my cube?

Burns: I'll have my lunch now. A single pillow of Shredded Wheat, some steamed toast, and a dodo egg.
Homer: But I think the dodo went extinct…
Burns: Get going! And answer those phones, install the computer system, and rotate my office so the window faces the hills.
Homer: (taking notes) Uh-huh, uh-huh. Okay. Um Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about uuhhh, things. Uhh… the things.

Michael, that snowed in episode is one of my FAVORITES, and has the ultimate Ralph line:

Skinner hands Ralph a brillo pad to sleep with.
Ralph: It's cold and hurty.

I can't believe how far Homer at the Bat fell... what a steal!

Officer Eddie: (reading Steve Sax's license) Steve Sax, from New York City.
Officer Lou: I heard someone once got killed in New York, and they never solved the case. But you wouldn't know anything about that, would you, Sax?
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?

I nominate the "Simpsons' 138th Episode Spectacular" hosted by Troy McClure, whom you may remember from remember from such Fox network specials as Alien Nose Job and Five Fabulous Weeks of The Chevy Chase Show.

"...But of course, for that ending to work, you would have to ignore all the Simpson DNA evidence. [Laughs] And that would be downright nutty."

Fear of Flying--
Wait a minute...there's something bothering me about this place. I know! This lesbian bar doesn't have a fire exit. Enjoy your death trap, ladies.

Rapist, Homer at the Bat has been taken twice. At least.

And someone already misquoted it earlier, too. It was "Mattingly, I told you to get rid of those sideburns," not Boggs.

I can't be this bored at work, can I?
