Of the immediate Simpson family, Lisa is the only one that has never been fully naked at any period of time. However, her scene near the end of the episode dressed in only a towel is the closest she has ever come to being completely naked. See more »


Aunt Gladys is referred to as Gladys Bouvier which is extremely unlikely since Bouvier is her sister Jacqueline's married name. See more »

"Yeagh, the legend of the Dog-Faced Woman."
26 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Selma's Choice is a great episode from season 4. It is probably one of the better episodes in which Selma is the major character.

After attending Aunt Gladys funeral, Selma decides she wants to have a baby. She starts dating but can not find anyone better than Hans Moleman. As the Simpson Family is about to go to Duff Gardens, Homer gets sick so Selma takes Bart and Lisa to Duff Gardens instead. As she spends the afternoon with the kids she begins to change her opinion of having kids.

For one this is a great realistic episode with a great plot. Too many times in future episodes the plot is so out of the ordinary that it makes it not realistic at all. This one is pretty realistic.

A lot of funny stuff happens in this episode. Homer eating a sandwich that is going bad, Bart pretending to be a dead Aunt Gladys, Lisa drinking the duff water that really is not water, and a whole bunch of other stuff. Its hilarious how the Duff Boat ride song continues to repeat over and over and it reminds me of the "Its a small world after all" ride at Disneyworld.

The character of Selma is the main one in this episode. I think that it is good to get an episode featuring Marge's sisters once in a while. She just wants to have a baby and not wind up lonely like Aunt Gladys did. Makes sense.

Phil Harman is great in this episode. He gets to be Lionel Hutz, Troy Mcclure, and a security guard at Duff Gardens. He was great and it is sad that he died, but when you watch episodes that he was in it helps his "Legend to live forever." So overall a great episode, and one that has great re watch ability. Highy recommended.
