5F10: Bart writes "Pain is not the cleanser" on the chalkboard
CABF14: Bart writes "Fire is not the cleanser" on the chalkboard
FABF02: Flanders deals with jealousy by tugging on his moustache, repeating "Pain is the cleanser! Pain is the cleanser!"
Where'd this "x is the cleanser" schtick come from? Is it a reference, or a Simpsons original?
It's not random. There is not a different couch gag for every episode. Some eps have the same couch gag. But even still, any time you see a particular episode air, it will have the same couch gag. The gags do repeat, though.Originally Posted by Buh
I tried to found some sort of key, or logic order of the couch sequences, but I really think it is random. Some "couches" repeat maybe because they didn't think of anything new, or because of some inside joke the creators have we don't know about.
My personal favorite is the James Bond couch from "And Maggie Makes Three" and the one when the camera goes away from Earth, through galaxies, which form molecules and it all ends up back in the living room and Homer says it was cool. This was in season 16, in the episode with 50 Cent, I think.
Yep, and it's second airing was at the start of On A Clear Day I Can't See My Sister, but Homer's "sweet" line is replaced with "cool".Originally Posted by grissom

Sorry for TRIPLE posting but the other post was from yesterday.
what was the episode that ended with the song "Lean on Me"?
In A Streetcar Named Marge, what is the name of the song Maggie plays on her little glockenspiel thing? It's been bugging me for years.
That would be "Dance of the sugar plum fairy" by Tchaïkovski from the Nutcracker Suite.Originally Posted by Nebuchanezzar
contrary to ryan, i believe it is actually because there were two simpsons specials that weren't actually counted as episodes. they were just specials and due to that episode being the actual 300th, they were making a joke that homer has done more stupid things contrary to the episode number simply because of the two specials. (thank god, i can breathe again)Originally Posted by Mowbs
"Oh, Homer, no man has ever been this nice to me without wanting something in return..."
"Well, I was going to ask you for a glass of water, but now i feel a little guilty"
1. In "Itchy and Scratchy the Movie", what's that song that Lisa plays on record when Bart plays around with the dentures?
2. On the song "Do the Bartman", who's singing the backvocal? It sounds like Michael Jackson...
3. In "Weekends at Burnsie" what's that song coming out when Homer smokes the medical marijuana in the bedroom?
calmer than you are
actually, i think they take time to come up with couch gags for certain situations, like wsmr.b prt2, but in the other cases, they use season-specific gags theyve created and it isnt random, they set it up for time, and they spread them out throughout the season to get a good mix if they do need to repeat.Originally Posted by Buh
But the specials still count as episodes of The Simpsons, so they still count towards the number of episodes made, even if they are specials or not. That's why the 300th is wrong.Originally Posted by radio-man
does anyone remember the episode where fat tony is driving his car and starts smoking a cigar while some music is playing? The camera moves around and im guessing its a movie reference. Does anyone know a)the reference b)what the plot was to the episode in the first place c)the name and season of it and d)what song is it?
a) The Sopranos b) it's the one where Homer starts SpringShield c) Poppa's Got A Brand New Badge (season 13) d) isn't it the same song used in the Sopranos? (ive never watch sopranos so i wouldnt know)
and thats why the joke was made, because it is the "official" 300th episodeOriginally Posted by ivan_simpsons
"official" meaning it was the official 300th episode (not counting specials as episodes)
Yeah...you're talking about the joke in "Barting Over" aren't you?
neither have i, so thx though, i had forgotten that episodeOriginally Posted by ivan_simpsons
In the cat burgler episode when Kent Brockman is intereviewing Homer, Homer says the line "You can come up with statistics for anything something percent of all people know that"? What is the percentage? I thought it was 14 and my friend thinks it is 40.
I have a pretty strange question about "Three Men and a Comic Book".
I wish I had a picture to show you what I'm talking about, but I don't. But...when they're all fighting in Bart's treehouse and Marge suggests to Homer that he check on them (Homer looks up and says "they're fine") it shows him sitting in like a bean bag chiar or something. What room of the house is he in?
the rumpus room. it's the same room seen in GABF16 the girl who slept too little, where Maggie watches sesame street.
1. That would be the Sabre dance by Aram KhachaturianOriginally Posted by Ian
2. It was written by Michael Jackson but in the booklet from "Sing the blues" it says "Background vocals : Bryan Loren"
3.Incense and Peppermints by Strawberry Alarm Clock when he starts to smoke and then Smoke on the Water by Deep Purple when he sings.
Yes it's the theme from the Sopranos and it's called Woke up this morning by Alabama 3does anyone remember the episode where fat tony is driving his car and starts smoking a cigar while some music is playing? The camera moves around and im guessing its a movie reference. Does anyone know a)the reference b)what the plot was to the episode in the first place c)the name and season of it and d)what song is it?

Homer actually says "forfty," so I guess your friend was closest.Originally Posted by Homer4President
^I thought it was "fourfteen"
The confusion continues...
Yes that sounds right I hope it is! The fourfteen% sounds more accurate.
