    news paper-thing is a classic and has been used in many TV series as well as movies, I'd like to know who came up with it though.

    The joke is that we have no idea what Homer's problem is with them--his strong animosity toward the avant-garde music group seems to be entirely out of left field.

    Hello there.
    In the episode (forgot it's name) where Homer works in the bowlerama, and he's watching how the pins are made and stuff, what is the music that is playing in the background? I've heard it many times, particularely in looney toons, but I've never found the name of the song. I've checked snpp, and they said it's "powerhouse" but I've d/l that song and it ain't it.

    Okay, an odd scene in Bart on the Road...

    Bart: "...we're not going to a grammar rodeo! That was just an alibi, Milton!"
    Milhouse: (correcting him) ...Martin...
    Bart: "...Martin."

    I just totally don't get that bit at all. Why does Bart get Martin's name wrong? Maybe Nancy Cartwright did this accidentally during recording and they kept it in as in-joke?

    SNPP is correct.

    I think that error is because Bart is so used to getting annoyed at Milhouse, it's become a relex action, hence the confusion between/fusion of the two names - along the lines of Marge shouting "Bart, noooo!" at Lisa in "Lisa the Vegetarian". I think SNPP says something to this effect too.

    Hello!

    Does anyone have a still/image of Mr Burns chucking fish guts over the crowd and yelling "Merry Fishmas"? I want to use it on a Christmas card!

    Thanks!

    It's a way of pointing out that Bart doesn't like or care about Martin, that he's just using him for the money he made earlier in the episode.

    Another question,
    In the episode where bart get's a bigger brother, Tom,
    what movie/show is parodied when bart gets home and homer's like
    "You've been out galavanting with that floozy of a bigger brother of yours, haven't you? haven't you!? Look at me!"

    Its easy to miss "Powerhouse" in a search - the piece was written by Raymond Scott in 1943, and later incorporated by orchestrator Carl Stallings in many, many Looney Tunes scores. Search for it with "Raymond Scott" and/or "Warner Brothers cartoons" and you'll find it.

    The joke is that Bart, when driving the car, has assumed the "father" role, and blithley screws up one of "the kid's" names - the name of the boy in the car that he has the most disdain and least friendship with. Nancy did not screw up the line.

    Its a parody of a Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor argument in Mike Nichol's "Who's Afraid of Viginia Woolf, a film filled with many such exchanges.

    And welcome to the board!!

    Wow we have had that question about cat on a hot tin roof so many times... I have a question about music, what is the song that is played in Burns Verkafen Kraftwerk, however you spell it when Homer goes into the land of chocolate.

    Recently, I saw someone on this board mention that Sideshow Bob once said "You smarmy little bastard.", since I live in the UK and the word is always removed, could someone tell me which episode the line comes from? Extra "cool" points for anyone who can tell me at which moment it comes in the episode.

    Sideshow Bob Roberts. He says it in the courtroom scene, I forget exactly when, but I think it's just before Bart says "We want the truth!"

    And they always remove "bastard?" So what do they do when Bart sings "Bastard, bastard, bastard, bastard" in Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?

    When they aired "Oh Brother," in the UK, they left Bart's Bastard song unedited.

    Although, SkyOne did remove Homer's later comment about Herb being a bastard. Other than Bart's song, SkyOne indeed do remove all uses of the word "Bastard". Eh, I suppose it's still slightly better than the over-the-top syndication cuts Seasons 1-8 got over in the US...

    Anyway, while I've got a post that (hopefully) won't be deleted because of off-topicness, I'd like to say a big thanks to Larson Something for answering my question.

    Well he was a powerful ruler and important figure so is Nelson to Bart being older and even more of a trouble maker Bart would aspire to being like Nelson however Nelson has no idea who Ceasar is....

  25. #325


    "Praise from Caesar" is a very, very old phrase. It means you are being praised by someone who excels at, or is in a lofty position within, the field in which you are making an effort.

    In Bart's case, this would be the field of "destruction" and/or "troublemaking", at which Nelson excels.

    In the cat burglar one why does Homer ask Jimbo to swing a sack of door knobs and he says to supply his own door knobs?

    Homer asks him if he can swing a sack full of door knobs. He wants to know if Jimbo can beat someone with a sack full of door knobs. He tells him he has to supply his own door knobs because he's cheap.

  29. #329


    I've got the end of a quote in my head and can't remember the beginning, episode or context. Homer's talking to Marge and at the end of his rant he says "That rhymes Marge and you know it rhymes. Admit it."

    Help
