Insurance fraud - not just for classic film noir, but also bang-up Simpsons episodes! 'Dumbbell Indemnity' (now there's a title that really spells it out) has one of my very favorite clips: the image of an irate Homer riding a library cart down the street ("Must kill Moe . . . WHEEEE!") . . .

But this one's got it in pretty much every department: sight gags, one-liners, a slew of Hank Azaria characters, and Homer's an idiot. But it goes beyond that to show a deep-seated insecurity beneath Moe's coarse veneer. It's hysterical, energetic, and even touching.

Top-shelf Simpsons.

10/10
