5/5, one of the top 20 episodes of all-time.
Kids, let me tell you about another so-called ``wicked'' guy. He had long hair and some wild ideas. He didn't always do what other people thought was right. And that man's name was...
I forget. But the point is... I forget that, too. Marge, you know what I'm talking about. He used to drive that blue car?
-- Homer's parable of the guy in the blue car, ``Homer the Heretic''
Ralph: I Won! I Won!
Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.
yeah, I think this episode is the definition of brilliant. I seriously think this is in my top 10 out of the 400 episodes.
Heckling a Puppet show.
Absolutely amazing in my eyes!
5/5 Excellent comedy.
"Socialism is inseparably interwoven with totalitarianism and the object worship of the state. It will prescribe for every one where they are to work, what they are to work at, where they may go and what they may say. Socialism is an attack on the right to breathe freely. No socialist system can be established without a political police. They would have to fall back on some form of Gestapo, no doubt very humanely directed in the first instance."
I thought it was a top episode the first time I watched it, but this one didn't hold up as well as others have. Still, it's definitely very good - 4/5.
"...the monster that has consumed your mother. I call him 'Gamblor'!"
I dunno, I mean, the plot was pretty awful, and I can't remember there being enough gags to compensate for it...

Solid A. Not much of an involving story but I think there are some genuinely moving parts. The humor is top-notch, and I think the fact that there are several different plots running throughout helps the episode a lot, in that we're constantly seeing how every family member (plus Burns) is being affected by the gambling legalization; I think that focusing on a single storyline for the entirety of the episode would be a waste of such a broad story idea.
Awesome episode. Along with all the lines quoted already, I always thought the shot of Homer dealing cards to Maggie and saying "I'm trying to teach the baby to gamble" was really funny for some reason. A.
"Hall of Famer Whitey Ford now out on the field... pleading with the crowd for, for some kind of sanity!"
5/5 One of my favorites.
One of episodes that Homer isn't completely self-centered. He tries making Lisa's crummy costume. I love that Bart opens his own TreeHouse casino. ""What are you going to do start your own casino in your little treehouse and get all your friends to come...well he certainly showed me"
It's one of those episodes that has everything.
"I call him gamblor" 4/5
4/5. "I Said Get In"
It's from Season 5, therefore, it is automatically perfect by default.
It's a shame I can't give it a 6/5.
Huh? Ok.Originally Posted by Starman
I was just thinking about this episode so I thought I'd post here about it. Absolutely love it. It's in my top 10 for sure. There's just so many great gags. GAMBLOR! Boogie man, I'm Idaho!, Bart's Casino & Robert Goulet.. it's almost perfect. It probably is perfect but I am reluctant to make such a claim. Alas, amazing episode. 5/5, 10/10, 20/20, 40/40, 80/80, 160/160 etc etc
Good funny with a nice plot but not perfect or special.4/5
4.5/5, rounded up to 5/5. One of my favorite season 5 episodes.
The plot was rather scattered and the whole thing was a bit odd, but it was very funny and interesting nonetheless. 4/5
5/5 one of all-time favorite episodes. this one is truly a classic and i find the episode perfect.
"I call him Gamblor, and its time to rip your mom from his neon claws!!!"
"You can train a n00b, but he'll just be a trained n00b..."
Awesome. One of the many I give an A+.
Just rewatched it, and my opinion has changed slightly. I now think it's a truly great episode, very funny on almost every scene and with an overall memorable and unique tone. All the characterizations were spot-on, and although Marge's storyline could have been developed more, it was still interesting to see. I liked seeing Homer get emotional over his failure with Lisa and over Marge's problem. There were also a multitude of great, hilarious moments in this one, despite there also being a few scenes that missed their mark. Overall, not an absolutely perfect episode, but still a definite classic. 4.5/5
Another awesome season 5 episode. I love how Barney criticizes Marge's mothering, then drinks the quarters and burps them back up as people collect them.
I also likes Burns' line "Come, we'll take the Spruce Moose, get in!
"Sir I don't think.."
"Get in......." As Mr. Burns pulls out a gun, hilarious.
One of the things I love about this episode is that after Act 2, there's all these different sub plots involving multiple characters but its handled so seemlessly:
-Marge's gambling problem.
-Homer as a blackjack dealer.
-Homer going insane w/out Marge at home.
-Lisa's state project.
-Burns going insane, owning the casino.
-Bart turning his treehouse into a casino.
Okay Bart's subplot wasn't given any closure. But who cares right? This episode also has "Gamblor". And I loved Homer pestering Marge at the end.
I love how sporadic this episode is, how it's just one series of little bits connected only by the casino theme. Great episode.
B+: Great episode, Has alot of overall humor, And I love how Burns was actually really funny in this one. I like how Marge finally has something wrong with her.
Homer: Remember that time I Burnt Selma with an Iron, but who cares! You Have a drinking problem!
Marge: Homer, When you apologize to someone, your not supposed to rub it in!
Homer: Bart, No need to scare you but Lisa and I THINK THE BOOGEYMAN IS HERE IN THE HOUSE TO KILL US!
Homer: You should have been here to stop me from doing something stupid!
Burns: I know what young folks want these days; Sex appeal and a catchy name: Mr. Burns casino.
Ralph: I'm Idaho
Skinner: I'll bet you are.
I thought most of this episode was excellent, classic-era material. I especially liked Bart and his treehouse casino and Marge's gambling addiction was handled sensitively and tactfully. The one criticism that I had -and it detracted from the excellent quality of the overall episode -was Homer's gloating over Marge's addiction at the end. It was boorish, offensive and unecessary and one of the earliest signs of jerkass Homer
5/5, definitely one of the best of any series
A solid episode with heaps of excellent gags, but does lose some appeal on re-watches. Homer is superb in this episode.
3.5 rounded to a 3/5
We got no food, we got no jobs, our PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
5/5. Season Five Gold.
