Did You Know?


Running joke: The interstate diner waitress, the fine-restaurant waitress, and the sperm bank receptionist are all the same female character, right down to the voice and uniform. 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 »


Lisa: Aunt Selma, this may be presumptuous, but have you ever considered artificial insemination?
Homer: Boy, I don't know. You'd have to be pretty desperate to make it with a robot.
[Marge whispers something in his ear]
Homer: I knew that.

Not Too Bad!
6 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the thirteenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons. All things considered, it's not that bad of an episode. But it has been a great season, so this is one of the weaker episodes. I guess it is because I'm not too fond of Selma and Patty, and I don't like episodes based around them. That being said, Selma did have highlights, but so did Lisa (a naked one!), Bart, and Homer.

In this episode, "Selma's Choice," after their Aunt Gladys died, Selma decides she may want kids after all. After Homer gets ill from eating a decayed sandwich, Marge volunteers to take Lisa and Bart to Duff Gardens, an amusement park. While there, the kids create all kinds of mischief which may cause Selma to change her mind.

Overall, this is a pretty good episode, although it's not the best of the bunch. There are some hilarious moments, especially when Lisa drank the water at Duff Gardens and became a paranoid girl. But the Selma story was not all that interesting. Thank heavens for Bart and Lisa. I rate this episode 8/10.
