    R&R Bart on the Road

    I watched this one this morning and liked it more than I remembered. I thought the main plot was pretty funny with good characterizations of Bart & company. The two subplots (Homer & Lisa, Marge's lonliness) were good and featured good characterizations too.
    I was saying "Boo-urns."

    On the whole, a good episode. The idea of people believing Bart's "age," even with a fake licence is unlikely and quite hard to put up with, but if you overlook that little fault, this is a very enjoyable caper. The subplot with Lisa and Homer is equally enjoyable, and merges nicely with the main plot of Bart and his friends getting trapped in Knoxville, Tennessee near the end. Some very funny moments include all those little jokes towards Tennessee, Nelson Muntz's musical taste in Andy Williams, and Homer's reaction to hearing the news about Bart being stranded - shouting in a radiation suit until it completely steams up. Great fun. Who needs satire and social commentary?

    I think this was a great episode, it's a shame it hasn't aired in a long time in my area. I'd really like to see Nelson whip the rock at the sunsphere only to have it come crashing down on the very car they drove up in, and then adds a very soft "haha".

    One of my favorite episodes it's in my top 10. I loved the plot and the subplot was pretty funny as well. The ending always cracks me up, people calling the Simpson’s home asking for Bart, Marge saying no to each person and Homer cracking up in the end. It was hilarious; I wish they showed this episode more often as well in my area, they only show it once in a blue moon. Any who loved it, loved it I give it 5/5

    Great, great, great, great episode with impeccable characterization, a fun and funny (if not particularly meaningful) main plot and a sweet, touching subplot (among the best in the show's history), providing a nice balance. And they come together seamlessly at the end. Easily one of my favorites, which kept me thoroughly entertained throughout. (A+)

    I gave it a 4/5. I enjoyed the Homer and Lisa subplot, and the main plot was decent. I thought the Marge plot brought the episode down a bit. Good but not in my top 25.

    A pretty funny episode, especially at the end (for those who remember some of my complaints about some endings - and who doesn't - this is how you work out an ending). (B/B+)

    The end worked so well due to the three subplots all being woven together so tightly.

    Marge was glad to have everybody back at home.
    Lisa was glad Homer didn't tell Bart the secret.
    Homer was glad because he had bonded with Lisa.
    Bart was glad to be home.

    Then the phone calls started. That really was a good way to put some comic relief in to break up the schmaltz, without being overly goofy.

    Very funny episode, although not the most memorable one. Pretty good characterizations and good gags. The plot doesn´t make much sense, but it´s ok. 4/5

    Probably the best use of multiple plots coming together in an episode, Skinner at the beginning makes up "Go to work with your parents day" Which sets up Bart and Lisa's stories, What's very nice is that the Skinner element is not forgotten about, and we see him later on, the writers also remember to include a couple of scene with Marge, great observational humor of Marge pinching Maggie.
    Not to mention the great character humour and mix of wackier gags in the A and B stories that cleverly come together.

    A+

    A great episode, that gets an A+ (or 5/5) in my book. So many great lines, and the sub-plot with Lisa and Homer is sweet. One of the best episodes of the best season, IMO.

    Great; Bart driving a car through the south is one of my favorite plots of all time, and the sweet Lisa subplot capped it off. A+

    Loved the scene where Homer curses out Bart with the protective helmet on. Also loved what he said afterward:

    "Okay, I have thought this through. I will send Bart the money to fly home. Then I will murder him."

    Too funny. I loved how Nelson kept saying "Ha-ha!" before the commercial breaks.

    One of the best Oakley-Weinstein era episodes!

    5/5

    I've never thought much of this episode, I find it to be dull in points and just don't like it. It's more a gut feeling than anything else. C+

    One of my personal favorites and I am especially partial to this episode because I am from Tennessee. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Loved it that they based a whole episode around Knoxville. Brilliant. 5/5

    This episode is one of the best of Season 7, and seeing how many gems that season has that is a great accomplishment. Both the Bart and Lisa plots were excellently done - just as long as I don't do that now (this is Spring Break where I live). I would like to travel to the World's Fair and Hong Kong, though...

    One of the series' classic lines: "You are hearing me talk" - Al Gore.

    In the words of Jason Hancock: "In the spirit of baseball's opening day, OFF has hit a home run!" 5/5.
    Bart: "Please don't call our parents!"
    Chief: "I'm afraid I have to for hijinks like these. Hijinks - it's a funny word. Three dotted letters in a row."
    Eddie: "Is it hyphenated?"
    Chief: "It used to be, back in the good old days, you know. Of course, every generation hyphenates the way it wants to. Then there's *NSYNC! What the hell is that? Jump in any time there, Eddie, these are good topics."
