Kent Brockman: [on TV] Lisa Simpson is no longer Little Miss Springfield. She was stripped of her crown in a ceremony earlier today.
[the TV shows footage of a goat being fed a bottle of milk]
Kent Brockman: Well, that's obviously the wrong footage. Uh, but it does seem the father of deposed beauty queen, Homer Simpson, filled out the pageant application incorrectly. In the area under "Do not write in this space", he wrote "Okay".
Homer: [to Lisa] If it wasn't for me, you'd still be queen. You must hate me.
Lisa: Dad, do you remember why ...

Seeing the names of the episodes from Season 4 I can say it is a really good Season. I stop watching regularly The Simpsons on TV so basically I haven't seen the Season 4 episodes in a while but hell I have seen each of those episodes AT LEAST a couple of times so I can say right now that some very memorable episodes that are definitely favourites of mine are from Season 4. Episodes like Kamp Krusty, HOMER THE HERETIC, Treehouse of Horror III, Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie, MR. PLOW, LISA'S FIRST WORD, Brother from the Same Planet, I Love Lisa, Duffless, Last Exist to Springfield and Krusty Gets Cancelled are those favourites of mine, those are certainly highly re-watchable classics. This one, Lisa the Beauty Queen, is a good episode, it has some really memorable moments but I think it is one of the weakest of Season 4.

You say the appearance of a girl is not important for her and you know you're lying. Here the school carnival leaves two things to the Simpsons: a ride on the Duff blimp for Homer and insecurity for Lisa because of her appearance. Homer can be what you want but he is also a caring father, we see him crying because he just sold his Duff blimp ticket to try to help Lisa and Lisa knows what means that his father sold his Duff blimp ticket! Homer sold his ticket to can afford Lisa's entrance to the Little Miss Springfield pageant and yes Lisa will be the queen but not a conventional one, she will try to make things better then she doesn't help the Mayor Quimby and some others. Is just hilarious to see Homer's mistake in the pageant application! (-in the area under "do not write in this space", he wrote "okay"-). A very funny ending to a good episode. (Also check when Lisa sings part of the great Creedence Clearwater Revival song "Proud Mary").
