Did You Know?


The staff were able to get the central cast of Cheers (1982), with the exception of Kelsey Grammer, to reunite and guest star in the episode. The staff could not arrange the script to allow time in the episode for Grammer, who already had a recurring role as Sideshow Bob, to voice Frasier Crane. See more »


When Homer goes to Cheers, Carla tells Sam he can't go out with two twins. There was no reason to mention there were two of them. This may have been intentional, considering the way Carla would often talk on the actual Cheers. See more »


Homer: Lisa, the important thing is for your mother to repress what happened. Push it deep down inside her, so she'll never annoy us again.

Probably my least favourite episode in Season 6
31 May 2020 | by aidanlast-98601See all my reviews

This is a decent Simpson's episode. It is probably my least favourite episode of the Sixth Season. Basically Homer gets kicked out of Moe's Tavern and he searches for a different bar. He ends up coming across one bar that is only for pilots. He dresses up as a pilot to be able to be there. He then gets told to start flying a plane but ends up destroying the plane. Afterwards he gets a free ticket to go where ever he wants so he doesn't talk about what happened. Him and the family get on a plane and find out that Marge is scared of flying. One thing that was cool about this episode is that we got to see more of Marges this past
