Glad to see love for Homer at the Bat. There's something special about that episode. I don't even like baseball but I get chills watching the closing credits.

Some really greats ones on here! I also really like "Homer's Phobia" and "Brother from the Same Planet".

@Calvin Klein - my friend and I still quote a lot! In recent days he sent me the meme below over whatsapp whilst mid Covid chat.. It absolutely did me in..... "Yes I would, Kent"

Homer's Barbershop Quartet needs to be on my list tbh.

Loads of my favourite episodes mentioned already, but I have to show some love for

Homer the Vigilante

Cape Feare

and Dumbell Indemnity, if only for the scenes planning for and executing Homer 'stealing' Moe's car.

Is the forum representative of uk general culture then ? :) 

well, I didn't want to assume this. That's why I asked.

Just between you and me ... I’ve never quite worked out the simpsons ... but then my username probably proves I’m fairly unique :)

If someone is at a fruit machine in the pub, we all say we are on "The Gamblor". To a point I forgot it was a fruit machine when I started writing this post!

Two of the most regularly quoted lines by me and my mate:

"Premium! Dude!"

"Just send it to Jesus care of the Pentagon"

We say those a shocking amount.

The other grandpa's saying "no I'm not superman" from the same episode is a favourite quote of mine to ise

  • Hank Scorpio : Uh, hi, Homer. What can I do for you? 

    Homer : Sir, I need to know where I can get some business hammocks. 

    Hank Scorpio : Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks! Homer, there's four places. There's the Hammock Hut, that's on third. 

    Homer : Uh-huh. 

    Hank Scorpio : There's Hammocks-R-Us, that's on third too. You got Put-Your-Butt-There. 

    Homer : Mm-Hmm. 

    Hank Scorpio : That's on third. Swing Low, Sweet Chariot... Matter of fact, they're all in the same complex; it's the hammock complex on third. 

    Homer : Oh, the hammock district! 

    Hank Scorpio : That's right.

Lisa: It is better to remain silent and be thought the fool, then to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

Homer’s Brain: Uh-oh, what did that mean? Better say something or they’ll think you’re stupid.


Homer: Takes one to know one!


Homer’s Brain: Swish!

Treehouse of Horror V is possibly my most watched episode. It is perfect. 
 

Last Exit To Springfield contains my all-time favourite Simpsons gag - ‘It was the best of times, it was the BLURST of times!? You stupid monkey!’ 

Another scene that springs to mind instantly is the ‘Joey Jo-Jo Junior Shabadoo’ scene
 

Very particular but there are two specific episodes where Homer’s laugh makes me genuinely laugh more than most other things in the world:

1. When the professor drops his notes in Homer Goes To College. 

2. In Team Homer when Flanders just misses out on getting a strike and Homer shouts ‘GOD BOY COULDN’T GET A STRIKE!’ The laughter that follows that in the background is astoundingly hilarious :lol:

I do the exact same! One of my friends loves to have a go on a fruity, and whenever we see him stood at one, we always say ‘Gamblor has him now’ :lol:

The whole of this exchange...

Marge: There’s something wrong with Bart.

Homer: New glasses?

Marge: He seems distant

Homer: Probably misses his old glasses,

Marge: I’d get more involved with him but then I’m afraid I’d smother him.

Homer: Yeah, and then we’d get the chair...

Marge: That’s not what I meant Homer.

Homer: It was Marge, admit it.
