My 10 Favorite Moments from The Simpsons in Honor of the FXX Marathon

Categories: Pop Rocks

Two, four, six, eight, Homer's crime is really great...

No one can ever accuse the staff writers for the show of not being intelligent. In fact, many of them are clearly word nerds. In "Homer Badman," an attempt to pry the irresistible Gummy Venus de Milo from the rear end of a baby sitter lands Homer in some hot water. The chant outside his home was an English major's wet dream.


We just heard this place existed.

In "Bart After Dark," the boy is taught a lesson by being forced to work in a secret house of burlesque called La Maison Derrière. The culmination of the episode is another classic Simpsons musical number including a moment of whimsy from Nelson and a couple other juvenile delinquents.

Not the Kentucky Fried Panda! It was finger Ling Ling good!

In "Lisa the Tree Hugger," residents of Springfield try to save an old tree from a developer who wears a cowboy hat and shoots his six guns indiscriminately while shouting, "Yee haw!" Lisa is sucked into the whole thing by a dreamy environmentalist. When the tree is finally cut down, it careens down the hillside and into town where it levels Kentucky Fried Panda. It's at that moment we hear Homer cry out for his beloved restaurant.

I didn't think he'd do "Moon River," but then -- bam! -- second encore!

When Bart steals the family car to go on a road trip with Milhouse, Nelson and Martin, they wind up in Branson for a performance of Andy Williams. Turns out, bully Nelson Muntz is a huge fan of the crooner and coos in appreciation despite the rest of the gang's ambivalence.


I'm looking for Amanda Hugginkiss. Why can't I find Amanda Hugginkiss?

In early episodes, a favorite bit found Bart prank calling Moe's Tavern seeking out characters like I.P. Freely and Mike Rotch. Once Moe caught on, he would threaten Bart in some fairly creative and descriptive ways. When Bart asks for Amanda Hugginkiss, Barney responds to the above question with, "Maybe your standards are too high." If that weren't enough, Moe goes off on Bart with this gem: "If I ever find out who you are, I'm going shove a sausage down your throat and stick starving dogs in your butt."

Great list!  The episode with the Hullabalooza music fest has some great moments for me.  When Cypress Hill "may or may not have ordered the London Symphony Orchestra, and during their set, Lisa saying "it smells like Otto's jacket".
