    Holy Moley! What a project! I may need a little help along the way, in that I often cannot recognize the episode solely by the title... but being a ridiculous Simpsons freak... I am IN! [​IMG]
    (Small piece of advice: Go back and italicize or bold the epsiodes that are already in!)
    I'd like to nominate the Maison D'erriere episode, the Frank Grimes episode, and the Monorail episode. If you can supply the appropriate titles, I'd say thanks very much.
    Looking forward to getting the voting underway!!

    I'm with Scott, I have no idea which episodes the titles refer to, so I'll nominate by plot synopsis. My nominations are as follows:
    - The episode when they go to New York and Homer ends up driving home with the boot still attached to the car.
    - The episode where Maude Flanders dies. Well, ok, Homer killed her.
    - Ok, I know the title of this one: Homerpalooza.

    I'll definitely toss in the old stand-by, Homer the Heretic, as well as the Treehouse of Horror episode with King Homer and Clown Without Pity (either II or III) and Deep Space Homer.

    I'll second Marge vs. the Monorail (Batman's a scientist?)

    Scott those episodes are
    Bart After Dark
    Homer's Enemy
    Marge Vs. The Monorail
    Thanks for the tips. If you need a brief run down of the episodes go to snpp.com. One of the best Simpsons site out there. I can't wait to get this going. Also nominated bye episode synopsis is fine sense I pretty much know what episode you are talking about(and I have the ultimate guide to the simpsons book[​IMG]). Marge Vs. The Monorail is now in the tourny.

    I love the Simpsons, but Im not sure of some of the episode names myself. So help me out here:

    1.Bobo the Bear Episode ("Whats that you say, you dont need television as long as you have beer?" "Thats right!" "All Beer trucks on route to Springfield have been diverted...")I CANNOT WAIT to get this on DVD so I can finally see the cut mechanical bear scene again - my favorite Simpsons episode

    2.Radioactive Man Movie in Springfield

    3.Cape Fear Parody

    I second:

    1.(Rains nomination)The World Trade Center/Trip to NY Episode ("And thats when the Chuds came after me" "Oh Homer of course youre gonna have bad memmories about NY if all you think about are the pimps and the Chuds")

    2.(Stevans nomination)Stonecutters Episode

    Jon those episodes are

    Rosebud

    Radioactive Man

    Cape Feare

    The City of New York Vs. Homer Simpson and Homer The Great(Stonecutters episode) are in the tourny. On a side note when the episodes face each other I will give a brief rundown of the episode. I figure that will make it alot easier.

    I nominate:
    Homer's Phobia, where Homer is afraid that Bart is gay.
    Lisa the Iconoclast, where Lisa learns that Jebediah Springfield was a fraud. This episode features the word "embiggen," which is a perfectly cromulent word.
    The Simpsons Spin-off Showcase, which is the episode where they showcase Simpsons spin-offs.
    I second Trilogy of Error, the Run Lola Run episode.
