Simpsons Season 4: God Bless Those Pagans!

Just picked up Season 4 of The Simpsons. To find this chunk of golden episodes for ten bucks was a real steal. So many classics from Kamp Krusty, Homer skips church, Itchy & Scratchy Movie, Duff Gardens, Mr. Plow, Monorail...

I'd almost forgotten some of the great lines from episodes like Last Exit to Springfield and Marge in Chains... Back then, episodes of The Simpsons weren't just written... They were crafted, re-written and polished.


Decided to consider my favorite lines from Season 4. Sure as hell wasn't easy, considering all the awesome material to choose from... But I'd say that these are special, simply because they've lasted in my mind for decades, and still make me laugh...

Kamp Krusty (Season 4, Episode 1)
Bart: "Don't we get to roast marshmallows?"
Dolph: "Shut up and eat your pine cone!"

Treehouse of Horror III (Season 4, Episode 5)
Bart: "Dad, you killed the zombie Flanders!"
Homer: "He was a zombie?"

Marge Gets a Job  (Season 4 Episode 7)
Krusty: "LOUD! That's our secret word for the day! HEE HEE HOO HOO HA HA!"

Lisa's First Word (Season 4, Episode 10)
Bart: "Can't sleep... Clown will eat me!"

Marge in Chains (Season 4 Episode 21)
Arnie Pye in the sky:
"Look out at the corner of 12th & Main cause I'm gonna be sick!"

The incredible use of a character's imagination through dreams, flashbacks (and hallucinations) can take us to some entertaining moments that are just as memorable as the stuff that "actually" happened...

"You won't be needing this anymore."

"If you should die before you wake..."

"Now how 'bout a hug?"

"It's Lisa in the Sky... No diamonds though"

"Lie in the snow and count to 60"

"I am evil Homer. I am evil Homer"
