"you saved us! I'm proud you're my father" "go away, eating"
22 April 2009 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

This one is a Bart and Homer episode and it begins with them, we see what is happening at the same time in Bart's day and in Homer's day. While for Bart (and Milhouse) the day is not good and seems to be just getting more and more boring Homer's day is getting better since he found under the couch a $20 bill and he realizes that he can get stuff with money but soon, very soon Homer will be again without $20 and now Bart and Milhouse's day will turn to be a lucky day, $20 that came from the sky. So we leave Homer for a moment to see the fun, real fun Broadway style for Bart and Milhouse but the party will be over, consequences for the sugar junkies: hangover, Bart is now a member of the junior campers and Milhouse has a bad word shaved in his hair. So Homer really enjoys the fact that now Bart is part of the campers, Homer certainly enjoys that but Bart will also enjoy since he will find that if you're a camper you can skip school classes and some other stuff. When the campers are planning the father-son river-rafting Bart is not very excited and Homer is like "Bart you don't have a son", so both Homer and Bart have plans, both have their logic and we have one of the greatest scenes of this episode then of Season 5 and by the end of that scene we have both Homr and Bart saying "D' oh".

This one is real vintage Simpsons, for me it is one of the very best of Season 5 and an all- time favourite, so many fantastic moments (the whole trip with Flanders part is just hilarious, it resumes who is Homer!). I'm not really sure how many times exactly I have seen Boy- Scoutz n the Hood (aired on 11/18/93) but surely it is one of the most highly re-watchable episodes ever and now that I'm revisiting Season 5 I saw it after years and certainly I loved it again. And Ernest Borgnine is so memorable!
