Quotes

[Homer is watching a television ad for the Naval Reserve]
Naval Recruiter: Daybreak, Jakarta. The proud men and women of the Navy are protecting America's interests overseas, but you're in Lubbock, Texas hosing down a statue, because you're in the Naval Reserve. Once you complete basic training, you only work one weekend a month, and most of that time you're drunk off your ass. The Naval Reserve: America's 17th line of defense, between the Mississippi National Guard, and the American League of Women Voters.

One of the worst of Season 9
24 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

In my opinion, "Simpson Tide" is one of the worst episodes of Season 9, preceded only by the clip show, "All Singing, All Dancing." The episode starts off well with Homer's dream and zany antics, but quickly goes downhill when Joshua Sternin and Jeffrey Ventimilia rely strictly on parody for cheap laughs...this could be why they've only been involved with two Simpson's episodes. I do enjoy the gag with Russia converting back to the Soviet Union, but most of the last 3/4 of the episode I do not care for. I think what bothers me the most is Michael Carrington as the drill sergeant. The voice does not sound like a drill sergeant and sounds annoyingly out of place.
