    Both are above average, but 'Rosebud' has a lot of quality gags, parodies and plot with nothing much wrong--definitely top 10 material. So, no contest

    "Rosebud" was one of the greatest episodes ever, possibly the second greatest in my opinion, after "Last Exit to Springfield". "Homer and Apu" was good and funny, with an excellent musical number, but other than that it wasn't much of a standout.

    Do yourself a favor and watch it; if not for the excellent production, then definitely watch it for the sake of further increasing this episode's value and the value of many other episodes which feature Citizen Kane parodies.

    Rosebud also gets my vote, but "Homer and Apu" has some hilarious exchanges and a catchy number.

    "Rosebud"
    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''

    Principal Skinner: No Ralph this means you're failing English
    Ralph: Me fail English? That's unpossible.

    'Rosebud' is so so funny. It's only fitting that the most highly revered film of all time should lend itself to be the target of the finest episode based movie parody in the entire show.

    I love both but "Rosebud" is high up in my Top Ten, definitely the best movie parody of the series and a good choice of source material to parody.

    Rosebud
    "Look, Marge, you don't know what it's like. I'm the one out there every day putting his ass on the line. And i'm not out of order! You're out of order. The whole freaking system is out of order. You want the truth? You want the truth?! You can't handle the truth! Because when you reach over and put your hand into a pile of goo, that was your best friend's face, you'll know what to do! Forget it, Marge. It's Chinatown!" - Homer's rant.

    I voted Rosebud, but I want to stick up for Homer And Apu. This poll is particularly tragic for me. Although Rosebud is at my top10 and my vote is indisputable, I also love Homer And Apu (it's on my top20), and I'm very fond of this episode.
