Lisa Simpson: I know another story about a great woman. It's called Snow White and the Seven
Lawyer: [interrupts Lisa] Excuse me, but the story you are about to tell is a copyright property of the Walt Disney Company.
Lisa Simpson: What? Snow White is a fairy tale that has been around for hundreds of years. Nobody owns the rights to it.
Lawyer: Does your story have any dwarves in it?
Lisa Simpson: Yes, but they are my own original creation. Their names are Crabby, Drunky, Hungry, Greedy, Lenny, Kerney, and Doc-tor Hibbert.

Unique Episode with Four Instead of the Usual Three Stories,
7 October 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Four Great Women and a Manicure is a great Simpsons episode with very well written stories and loads of very funny scenes.The episode is certainly unique,we've seen the characters telling stories before,but these ones were much wackier,almost like Treehouse of Horror,just with more innocence,and it consists of four stories instead of the usual three.My favourite segment was certainly the Snow White parody,but I also liked Lady Macbeth very much and Maggie's story,although the Queen Elizabeth the First segment was certainly the weakest.Four Great Women and a Manicure isn't the highlight of the landmark twentieth season,but it's certainly a fun episode.

While they wait for a manicure,Marge and Lisa bond by telling each other stories of great women in history.

If you have any recommendations on films/TV series I should watch or review,or any questions to ask me,just tweet me @DillonTheHarris
