[in front a "Best Teacher's Award" committee]
Bart: [in a video] This year, I'd like to nominate my teacher- Ms. Krabappel. Shy may not be glamorous or entertaining. She's just a normal teacher who's always there. And, she's never given up on me- Bart Simpson.

Teacher of the Year Judge: Bart Simpson? I thought he was an urban legend.

A Weaker Moment for Season 14, but still Fun,
2 June 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Special Edna is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and loads of very funny scenes. Episodes based around Edna and Bart are always very enjoyable, there is a lot of conflict between these two, seeing them help out the other is always sweet and it reminds the audience that they are genuinely friends. In comparison to other episodes in the fourteenth season, it's one of the weaker ones, it's good but when you have episodes like The Dad Who Knew Too Little, Three Gays of the Condo and Móe Baby Blues, Special Edna is left feeling not so special. I loved seeing the Simpsons go to Orlando in this episode and some of the funniest parts were seeing them parody it's many theme parks, with a huge dig at EPCOT. Special Edna is a very enjoyable Simpsons.

After Bart nominates Edna for a Teacher of the Year award, she invites the family to Florida with the hopes of winning.
