Apu, to Homer, upon recognizing his shoddy work at the Kwik-E-Mart: "Oh, the young man you replaced is rolling over in his grave!"

Also up there: "You see, Lisa, grownups have this thing called money...."

And the immortal exchange:

   Marge: You sound like you're going to buy a pony.  Promise me you won't.
   Homer: Mm.
   Marge: What was that?  Was that a yes or a no?
   Homer: Buh!
   Marge: Those aren't even words!
   Homer: Snuh!
   Marge: Mmmmm. [turns off the light]
   Homer: [huge grin]

So I was just watching The Simpsons with a friend who is sadly undereducated in it, and wow. Do you realize that Season 5, Disc 1 (on the DVDs) contains:

- Homer's Barbershop Quartet (i.e. the pitch-perfect Beatles parody)
- Cape Feare (i.e. the best Sideshow Bob episode)
- Homer Goes to College (i.e. the second best of Conan O'Brien's episodes after the immortal "Marge vs. the Monorail," but not too far behind)
- Rosebud (i.e. possibly the best Mr. Burns episode and a pitch-perfect Citizen Kane parody)
- Treehouse of Horror IV (i.e. the...okay, personally I'd say SECOND best Halloween special, but still)

I mean, WHAT? I am pretty sure I have seen all five of those on top-twenty lists. I mean, that really is incredible.

Here is part 2 of my reflections on season 1 of The Simpsons, which covers Call of the Simpsons through the season finale.

I have so many posts, either half-written or mostly written, on my hard drive, and I'm never sure if it's worth posting or not.  Still, I guess I'd rather post than not post, even though a) I'm not sure if it's interesting and b) I wrote this last year.

I rewatched The Simpsons seasons 1-9 last year; the show sort of WAS my childhood in some big ways so it was a big experience.  When watching season 1 I included some comments on each episode, but it's hard to sustain a rewatch writing on every episode, so I pretty much stopped after season one.

Without further ado, here are some notes on the first half or so of The Simpsons season 1.

Part 2 tomorrow.
