The nitrous oxide cylinder at the end of the episode is marked N²O. Chemical formulas use subscript for numbers, at least nowadays (the original Berzeluis notation used superscript and was still used during the first half of the 20th century). See more »


Mr. Burns: This is a thousand monkeys working at a thousand typewriters. Soon, they'll have written the greatest novel known to man.

Best by light years of Simpsons at its peak
30 June 2014 | by philip2017See all my reviews

Early Simpsons set a cracking pace, but this one is a freak of nature compared to even the other great episodes...

If you haven't seen it, best to stop reading now and just start watching it.

Not a dud in it or even average work in it... you could watch normal programs for thousands of hours without being treated so well by the TV industry.

I thought 21 years ago the team had for some reason just decided they'd aim for ultimate comedy highs with every 10 seconds of the 22 minutes and I still think that is true!

Ultimate Mr Burns ep. Most laughs per ep.

No Comic Book Guy, but Best Ep(isode) EVER!
