Classic Simpsons!
2 July 2015 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

This is a really funny episode, one of the better ones in the series. To summarize it, Barney ends up being the designated driver at Moe's Bar since there's complaints about drunk driving traffic collisions. Barney takes Homer and his pals home but forgets to bring the car back. We realize that Barney has Homer's car. He doesn't hear anything until Barney gets back one day and tells Homer that he forgot what happened. Lisa goes through the mail and finds out that it's parked in New York City.

Homer had a bad experience when he was younger and is reluctant to go. After Marge and the kids convince him, he decides to go. They take the bus there and havoc ensues. There are a bunch of parking tickets and a boot attached to one of the wheels. I won't spoil the rest of the episode but it's great. If you're a Simpsons fan, it's worth watching!
