    So I guess everyone else agrees that this past episode was nothing to write about since I'm having to start this thread on a Tuesday afternoon...[​IMG]

    Ack! How many times are they going to show us the first time Homer and Marge met? They have to go back further and further (i.e. back to when they were kids) to write anything new. [​IMG]

    What's next? Marge and Homer meet as sperm? [​IMG]

    The funniest part was when Homer recalled his past and couldn't remember if it was in the 50's, 60's, or 70's...an obvious crack about the fact that the characters haven't aged in 15 years.

    The worst part was Moe getting the crank call (as a child) and saying "and that's the origin of that" [​IMG]

    The young sea captain was pretty funny though.

    I thought the best line was when Carl said "I wish someone would come down my love chute"

    I don't even think there was a thread about last week's episode, either.

    Was that switchblade-in-the-eye scene also in another episode? I know I've seen it before somewhere.

    In the recent Battlebots episode, Homer spring loaded a first aid box. Of course, he opens it and needles and junk spring out at his face.

    I don't think so, but the gag has been done before.

    1.) Homer looks into the vacuum cleaner hose when he is about to suck the grease from the schools fryers, and gets his eye stuck.

    2.) Homer looks into the hose (that Bart turned off) to see where the water went (in the episode where the family was on the reality show) and then Bart turns on the water.

    etc. I'm sure there are a few others.

    What I remembered was that exact scene with the switchblade. Maybe I just saw it in a commercial or something.

    Homer + Marge = divorce.

    It's bound to happen, or at least that's the tone of the last few shows.

    Homer already divorced Marge in another episode so they could get remarried and have a good wedding.
