The one where Homer is accused of sexual harrassment. Gentle Ben: best one-episode character ever?
And Dennis Franz is in it. Double bonus!
That... sweet... can... c-c-c-can...
My favourite episode however, is the one with Hank Scorpio. Best ending ever.
with all the opinions expressed on this thread so far. So I won't.
It's always hard to resist saying this whenever the topic of The Simpsons comes up, so I won't: A few months ago I went onto Ebay and for £25, a man sold me some DVDs containing every episode of the Simpsons made thus far. So right now, right at this moment, I could watch this episode. Or the Hank Scorpio episode. Or the Ricky Gervais episode.
I choose not.
Just for the 'escalator to nowhere' bit.
"Good work, Homer! When you go home tonight, there'll be an extra storey on your house."
but it contains one of my fave bits, where Homer falls out of the shower, and it gets reported by Kent Brockman as "homer simpson sleeps naked in an oxygen tent, which he believes gives him sexual powers!"
is one of the best one episode characters as well¬!
"I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end isn't that the real truth? The answer is no."
Every time i see that episode. Without fail.
That episode also contains my favourite Simpsons running gag - a character escaping an awkward situation by simply leaving as fast as they can and all you can hear is their car peeling off into the distance. Instant belly laugh every time.
I love the running gag where everything that is ever in a collision explodes (my personal favourite being Chief Wiggum disguised as a trash can to catch drunk drivers, rolling down a hill, and blowing up when he hits a tree).
or the horse, or the car that gets hit by bette midler's can, or even the cereal homer makes for mr burns. LOL.
hans moleman gets run off the road, and comes to a gentle stop in front of a tree, and then... BOOM!
"I don't know Homer Simpson, I've never met Homer Simpson, and I've never had any contact with him but... I'm sorry, I can't go on" [breaks down]
"That's okay, your tears say more than real evidence ever could."
In two short lines, The Simpsons once again bests the complete works of most other satirists.
