Quotes

Ned Flanders: Sorry to bother you, Reverend Lovejoy, but I'm kind of in a tizzy. My son Todd just told us he didn't want to eat his damn vegetables.
Rev. Lovejoy: Well, you know kids and vegetables. What was it? Asparagus?
Ned Flanders: No, no, Reverend. The point is, he said a bad word.
Rev. Lovejoy: Oh, oh, right, yeah. Well, kids usually pick these things up from someplace. Find out who's doing it and... direct them to the Bible.
Ned Flanders: Where in the Bible?
Rev. Lovejoy: Uh... page 900.

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.
