Did You Know?


There was originally a joke in the episode in which a gay couple walked into "Flaming Moe's", assuming that it was a gay bar because of the name. Matt Groening feels that it was a good thing the joke was cut because he did not feel the writers should bring attention to the name. See more »


Moe: He may have come up with the receipt, but I came up with the idea of charging $6.95 for it.

Now This Is What I Like!
13 August 2014 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the third season of the Simpsons and it is a laughter riot. I was laughing nonstop especially when we learn how Homer made his secret alcoholic recipe. There is a touching theme here on the value of friendship and how success does not equal friendship. Also, Aerosmith was an excellent guest star because they knew how to rock out.

In this episode, "Flaming Moe's", Homer introduces Moe his recipe which he invented and Moe decides to betray his friend and uses the recipe as his own invention which gives him lots of success, but may have lost Homer as a friend.

Overall, another excellent episode. It was really funny. I also liked when Bart does his usual prank call and he almost gets caught. But Aerosmith so far is one of the greatest guest stars to appear in an Simpsons episode to date. I rate this episode 9/10.
