    The rerun of The Simpsons where Homer takes over Smithers job was on today. In it Mr. Burns tries to use the phone for the first time, and he accidentally calls Moe's. Moe thinks Burns is Bart prank calling him, and he goes into a tirade about what he's going to do if he catches Burns. The audio made an obvious change at one point. It's still Moe's voice, but you can tell it's been changed. What was it changed from and why? Does anybody no? Moe now says something about ripping out his eyes and putting them down his pants so he can see Moe kick the crap out of him.

    Most of the episodes have been slightly recut in syndication to fit in enough space for commercials.
    This link will explain the cuts and give you a list of episodes that have yet to go under the syndication knife:

    Thanks, Kevin. That site is great.
    I read through the script for the episode, and it contained the dialogue I heard. The problem I had was you could tell it was something added late. The sound of the audio changed, if that makes any sense. You could tell something was dubbed in. It seems like old dialogue was replaced with new. Maybe I'm just crazy. [​IMG]

    Dialogue re-dubb has been done on the Simpsons. The one where Lisa bets on football games with Homer, the original episode put Dallas and Buffalo in the Super Bowl (that years matchup). But in future showings, they replaced Dallas with Washington (next years matchup). In syndication, they continued to use the Washington-Buffalo dialogue.

    Yeah SNPP is a great web site for Simpsons information. With the DVD boxsets coming soon I plan on printing up the Episode guide and using it when I want to watch an episode. One thing with the site that isn't that great though, some of the episode write-ups don't have all the dialogue from the shows on them but its mostly there. But the uncut episodes will be on the DVDs which is great!

    i noticed this too in other eps.
    usually the closed captioning has the origional dialogue. in an ep that had a scene in the library(i think) many of the kids had taken over and were burning books. they had tied skinner up and he was hanging from the ceiling.
    while they were burning the books skinner said something totally inaudible but the CC had the correct dialog and the CC even matched his mouth movement but the words didn't. almost like a dub of a foreign movie.
    if i remember to i like to tape the show just to rewatch the CC to see if its different then whats spoken.
    by the way anyone know what ep that is i referred to?
