Did You Know?


The presidents portrayed in the "Caretaker Presidents" musical number are Zachary Taylor (12th), John Tyler (10th), Millard Fillmore (13th), Rutherford B. Hayes (19th), William Henry Harrison (9th), and Chester A. Arthur (21st). Arthur is not identified in the song but referenced later in the episode by Bart, and is identifiable as the president played by Martin by his mustache and sideburns. Two of the presidents are not identified, the bearded one is likely James Garfield (20th) who preceded Arthur and was assassinated after only serving 199 days, the second shortest term, while the remaining one played by Lewis is presumably Andrew Johnson (17th) based on his mid-1800s attire, lack of facial hair, and low historical rankings, though Franklin Pierce (14th) and James Buchanan (15th) would also fit that description.

Lisa Has a Boyfriend?
7 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the fifteenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and it's a very good episode, one with a satisfying romantic background. The episode revolves with Lisa falling in love, or shall we say some boy falling in love with Lisa. It was also funny to watch how easily corrupt the cops are in Springfield, especially Chief Wiggum. But on the whole, this is a pretty funny episode.

In this episode, "I Love Lisa," Lisa gives her classmate Ralph a Valentine's Day card out of sympathy, but Ralph takes it the wrong way and he falls in love with Lisa, although Lisa does not return the favor. When Ralph gets tickets for the Krusty Klown anniversary show, Lisa makes her feelings become true to Ralph.

Overall, this is a very good episode that tackles on weighty issues such as romance. The cultural references are excellent as usual as my favorite scene is Bart channeling his inner Arnold Schwarzenegger in a terrific Terminator 2 sequence. Plus I love how Krusty rocks out to a Doors song, so that was funny. Another fun episode! I rate this episode 9/10.
