    Why, oh way, didn't they listen to Mr. Snrub? They could have avoided all this monorail business!

    That is the best out-of-the-blue hilarious line ever uttered on any TV show ever.

    But Mr. Plow is a slightly better episode.

    Greatest Youtube ever from the greatest Simpsons ever ...

    More ...

    Deep Space Homer Best Of ... including one of SJ's most oft-used phrases

    Best song from the Simpsons ...

    Below par episode, but this part absolutely killed me when I first saw it ...

    I think that I can speak for all of who have loved this show for closing in on two decades now when I say that I honestly hope the best Simpsons "episode" we will ever see will be on July 27th.

    For me, it's Mr. Plow followed by "Bart on the Road" where Bart, Millhouse, Nelson and Martin drive to the National Geographic Bee in Canada Knoxville World's Fair. I always get a good laugh when they show the four wearing wigs.

    This episode was just brilliant. Frank Grimes is one of my favorite characters in the show history, even if he just appeared for one episode.

    "I'm peeing on the seat, gimme a raise!" maybe my favorite simpsons quote

    Who knew Nelson was such a fan of the song Moon River?

    No love for the General Sherman episode?
    Bait shop guy: `General Sherman'. They say he's 500 pounds of bottom-dwelling fury, don't you know. No one knows how old he is, but if you ask me (and most people do), he's hundred years if he's a day.
    Customer: And no one's ever caught him?
    Clerk: Well, one fella came close. Went by the name of Homer. Seven feet tall he was, with arms like tree trunks. His eyes were like steel, cold and hard. Had a shock of hair, red like the fires of Hell.

    When Homer goes to space is up there for me, too, particularly Kent Brockman welcoming our new ant overlords.

    Who Shot Mr. Burns? was outstanding as well.

    I think I might have to go with Lisa the Vegetarian, though all the ones mentioned are good...

    Ralph eating his worm, the independent thought alarms, Bovine University, and of course the flying pig...

    Homer: It's just a little dirty. It's still good, it's still good!
    [Passes traffic, jumps a bridge and lands in the water.]
    It's just a little slimy, it's still good, it's still good!
    [It gets caught in a dam spillway, and when the pressure builds,
    it shoots into the sky.]
    It's just a little airborne, it's still good, it's still good!

    Burns: You know, Smithers, I think I'll donate a million dollars to
    the local orphanage...when pigs fly!
    [They laugh. The pig sails across the sky before them.]
    Smithers: Will you be donating that million dollars now, Sir?
    Burns: Nooo, I'd still prefer not.

    Apu: Here. Let me show you something Lisa. [Walks to a cooler marked
    'Non-Alcoholic Beer" and opens the door. A set of stairs leading
    upward is behind it.]
    Lisa: Wow, a secret staircase. But what do you do if someone wants a
    non-alcoholic beer?
    Apu: You know, it's never come up.

    Lisa: Cold goatspatcho for everyone!
    Barney: Go back to Russia!

    Lisa: No I can't! I can't eat any of them!
    Homer: Wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute. Lisa honey, are you
    saying you're *never* going to eat any animal again? What about
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Ham?
    Lisa: No.
    Homer: Pork chops?
    Lisa: Dad! Those all come from the same animal!
    Homer: [Chuckles] Yeah, right Lisa. A wonderful, magical animal.

    Hibbert: Aaah. Diagnosis -- delicious.
    Homer: I've got the presciption for you, another hot beef injection!
    Wiggum: Uuuh, Homer? Bring me another one of those...uuh. burgers
    would ya? I can't quite seem to...stand up under my own power
    Homer: One whopper for the Copper.

    So many solid laughs and they managed to work most of the characters in somewhere. (Thanks to SNPP.com for the quotes above)

    For the record, it was the National Grammar Rodeo in Toronto. Bart says, "They've forgotten it's all about the grammar."

    Why do I remember it being in the west part of Canada? Maybe I'm recalling Martin rejoicing at the site of what he thought was the Canadian praries.

    Speaking of the union episode, a gas station near my apartment has business cards on the pumps that read "DENTAL PLAN" in big letters. I took the first one, wrote underneath it LISA NEEDS BRACES and put it back. Did anyone get it? I doubt it.
