Quotes

[Writing a farewell love letter to Mrs. Krabappel]
Bart Simpson: How about, "an alligator bit off my face."
Marge Simpson: That's disgusting! And besides, if a woman really loves a man, she doesn't care if an alligator bites off his face.
Homer: I may hold you to that, Marge.

Bart and Mrs. Krabappel's winter romance
2 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those classic Bart and Mrs. Krabappel episodes. In it, Bart answers Mrs. Krabappel's personal ad as 'Woodrow' as a prank. The subplot is Homer starting a swear jar.

It's hard to call any Simpsons episode definitive given just how many episodes there have been. I would call this one of the top two or three Mrs. Krabappel episodes.

The strongest part of this episode in my opinion is the ending. Some of the funniest jokes are had then as the Simpson family sits down to write Bart's last letter. Then there's a great understated scene between Bart and Mrs. Krabappel which is the cherry on top for the episode.

It's worth a watch and even a rewind here or there. There's a lot to hear and see in this one.
