Bart Simpson: Lise, I don't get it... Why does Milhouse's happiness make me sad?
Lisa Simpson: Bart, Bart, Bart, you're worried you're losing Milhouse, and love is a selfish thing!
Bart Simpson: Shut up! I don't love Milhouse!
Lisa Simpson: Oh Really? The more you deny it, the more I know it's true!
Bart Simpson: Oh, yeah? Well, whenever you're mean, I'm a trampoline. So everything you said goes back and hits your ugly head.
Lisa Simpson: [Laughs] God, that was lame. Where did you get that?
Bart Simpson: From Milhouse! Oh, I love him so much!

I'm not really sure with this episode. In fact, I'm not really sure what it was trying to accomplish.
27 November 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode featured some things I've never seen characters do before, and even some things I've never seen on The Simpsons. I don't know if that's good or bad.

This episode felt way too rushed, especially when dealing with a tender subject like Milhouse's parents getting back together. Maybe it would've done better with more time, but even so, I don't think it would make it any better of an episode.

As for the sub-plot of Marge getting miffed when Homer couldn't remember the colour of her eyes was, as Robert Canning stated, "filler material". Usually, Marge would just reply to that with an irritated murmur, but no, they just had to make an unnecessary, stupid sub-plot, when the main plot clearly needed the time the sub-plot took up to develop. Honestly, it's as if they don't know what they're doing anymore.

While I obviously expected this sort of thing, after previous efforts, this particular episode was not as bad, just bland and filled with wasted potential and a main plot that could've been done and acted out so much better.
