A sentimental, funny tale--with flashbacks
6 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode opens with the Simpson family attempting to coax Maggie into saying her first words. Homer and Marge end up telling Bart and Lisa the story of when Lisa said her first words. They cycle through numerous other stories from that time period first. The stories begin in Springfield 1983.

The year and many of the jokes have since been retconned, because if they hadn't been, Bart would be almost thirty years old now. The Simpsons aren't allowed to age so the show follows a moving timeline.

There's really a lot to like in this episode. The flashbacks to a younger Simpson family are quite funny and show a lot of heart too. The end to this episode is quite sentimental and certainly a great ending to a great episode.

Make sure to commit your full attention to this one as you speed through the season 4 box set.
