Did You Know?


In one scene, Dr. Frink suggests a trip inside Homer, referencing Fantastic Voyage (1966). Later in The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror XV (2004), there was a parody of it, with The Simpsons family going inside Mr. Burns to save Maggie See more »


Mr. Burns is shown time and time again, season after season, being unable to remember Homer's name or the things Homer and his family have done that impacted his life, yet he comes to the hospital and wants to pull the plug on Homer, telling Marge that she has no idea "what this man has put me through", which is followed by a clip. So this time he remembers Homer, even though he doesn't speak his name. See more »


Lou: That sounded like an explosion at the old Simpson place.
Chief Wiggum: Forget it. That's two blocks away.
Lou: Looks like there's beer coming out of the chimney.
Chief Wiggum: I am proceeding on foot. Call in a code 8.
Lou: [on the radio] We need pretzels. Repeat, pretzels.

A Retread of the Past!
8 January 2015 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

This is the eighteenth episode of the fourth season of the Simpsons and believe it or not, I found it to be quite enjoyable. The episode mainly relies upon usage of flashbacks from previous seasons, but that brought back memories and it showed the improvement of the show in storytelling and animation. I loved the cultural references, mainly to Barney resembling the chief antics in 1975's One who Flew Over the Cuckoo Nest.

In this episode, "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show," after Homer played practical jokes on Bart because of April Fools Day, Bart vows revenge. But it goes a little too far when Homer is seriously injured, thus each family member giving their favorite memories of Homer.

Overall, this is a great episode. About as great one could hope for in a clip episode. The episode is funny and had some good lines from Grampa and Dr. Hibbert. The episode is a little dramatic though and it gets pretty sad when the family express their love to an unconscious Homer. Another solid episode in the books. I rate this episode 9/10.
