Marge: Homer, a man who called himself "you-know-who" just invited you to a secret "wink-wink" at the "you-know-what". You certainly are popular now that you're a Stonecutter.
Homer: Oh, yeah. Beer busts, beer blasts, keggers, stein hoists, AA meetings, beer night. It's wonderful, Marge. I've never felt so accepted in all my life. These people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which I joined.

Perfect episode and features my funniest Simpson moment
9 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen this numerous times and love the story. What a great idea for an episode. Had any other show ever covered a topic like a secret, organized club before?

Onto my favorite scene from the whole series: In the first act, Homer is stuck in traffic on his way to the power plant. He finds one spot, that is right next to his house. In the next act, when Homer becomes a Stonecutter, he drives to work, gets stuck, but turns down a lonely road. Then a fancy, secret tunnel opens up. His parking remains the same though. When Bart notices, he says, "Same spot, huh dad?". Homer responds, "Yeah, but they gave me these roller blades to glide to front door". He puts them on and wobbles around saying, "Sweeeet". Man, that whole scene is hilarious. Every time I am physically unsure of myself, I always repeat "sweet" like Homer.
