Best Simpsons Scenes

Aside from the entirety of “Time and Punishment” …

The April Fool’s episode where Bart takes Homers last can of beer down to the hardware store for a spin on the paint shaker. The way the can trembles all by itself as Bart gingerly places it on the refrigerator shelf is great. Best of all is when Bart attempts to shout “April Fo …” only to be cut off as the can detonates upon being opened.

How the foam lifts off the roof and geysers out of the chimney is priceless. So is the exterior dialogue:

Eddie: That sounded like an explosion at the old Simpson place.

Wiggum: Forget it. That’s two blocks away.

Eddie: Looks like there’s beer coming out of the chimney!

Wiggum: [gets out of the car] I am proceeding on foot. Call in a Code 8.

Eddie: [into radio] We need pretzels. Repeat, pretzels.

I can laugh myself into tears just thinking about it again. What are your favorite scenes?

Simpsons in Australia at the embassy when they open the door to show them the machine that makes the water in the toilet go down clockwise. Believe me, it’s not that far removed from reality.

Oh god, so many…

Homer and Bart chasing Homer’s roasting pig as it speeds away.
Homer: It’s just a little dirty, it’s still good, it’s still good!

Homer: It’s just a little slimy, it’s still good, it’s still good!

Homer: It’s just a little airborne, it’s still good it’s still good!
Bart: It’s gone
Homer: I know.
Homer buying the Krusty doll from the shop of Evil.
Shop Owner: I must warn you though, this doll carries a terrible curse
Homer: That’s bad
Shop Owner: But it comes with a free frogurt!
Homer: That’s good
Shop Owner: The frogurt is also cursed
Homer: That’s bad
Shop Owner: But you get your choice of topping!
Homer: That’s good
Shop Owner: The topping contains postassium benzonate
Homer: . . .
Shop Owner: That’s bad
Homer: Can I go now?

The scene where Mr. Bergstrom is leaving on the train and Lisa is saying good-bye always makes me cry, so does the shot of Homer’s wall at work covered in pictures of Maggie. Hank Scorpio’s climactic battle with the government is good too, “Homer, if you could kill someone on your way out it’d really help me a lot.”

“Cape Feare” - Pretty much the whole episode.

FBI Agent: (exasperated) Now when I press down on your foot, you smile and nod. HELLO MR. THOMPSON (stomp)
Homer: (Whispering to other agent) I think he’s talking to you. . .

Homer: Who wants to drive through the Cactus Patch?
Bart and Lisa: YAAY!!!
Sideshow Bob: (Strapped Underneath the Car) Noooo.
Homer: Two votes to one! (Swerves off road)

Sideshow Bob vs. the rakes. It’s hilarious at first, stops being funny and then keeps going until it is ridiculous again. Except in syndication.

TERROR . . . LAKE . . . .SALUTES . . . HANNIBAL . . . CROSSING. . . THE. . . ALPS

( did they cut it out in syndication?)
