A fantastic end to Season 7, and a nice summery feel good episode. The episode covers a lot of summer related topics which few TV programs seem to cover. I particularly liked Milhouse's impression of all the different sprinklers at the start and his enthusiasm for everything e.g “Oh boy! a carnival!” I also like the American Graffiti parodies and Homer's face when Bart gets “the dud” in Mystery Date and it looks like Milhouse. Lisa's friends have some funny lines; I really like the "I know where I can get some baggettes!" line. It's probably not a lot of peoples favourite episode but I really like this one.
Milhouse: How did it go? Are we down with them?
Bart: No. They must have seen you!
2. Homer The Vigilante
I laughed so much when I first watched this one. The line “So I said to him, "Look, buddy, your car was upside down when we got here. And as for your Grandma, she shouldn't have mouthed off like that!" is pure gold. It's a bit of surreal episode, what with the It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World parody at the end and I'm happy to see an episode with a lot of Grandpa in it. There's not a bad word I can say about this episode. I think this is Jimbo's finest hour.
Homer: You better have a good reason for doing that, boy.
Jimbo: It makes me feel like a big man.
Homer: Let me check my reason list. ...Yep! It's on here.
Jimbo: Hey! You're that drunken posse. Wow...can I join ya?
Homer: [skeptical] I don't know...can you swing a sack of door knobs?
Jimbo: Can I?
Homer: You're in! Here's the sack.
Moe: But you gotta supply your own knobs.
3. Last Exit To Springfield
I've heard a lot of people call this their favourite episode and I think it's probably because so much happens in it. When I watch it I usually think to myself "oh, that's where that scene's from" the writers really put a lot in to this one. I've always enjoyed the mad dentist's performance and the pre-dated stainless steal braces he gives Lisa. Homer's great as always and I think this is the best Burns centred episode, if only for his "Smithers, I'm beginning to think that Homer Simpsons is not the brilliant tactician I thought he was" line, after Homer does his Three Stooges impression.
Burns: We don't have to be adversaries, Homer. We both want a fair union contract.
Homer: [thinking] Why is Mr. Burns being so nice to me?
Burns: And if you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours.
Homer: [thinking] Wait a minute. Is he coming onto me?
Burns: I mean, if I should slip something into your pocket, what's the harm?
Homer: [thinking] My God! He
Burns: After all, negotiations make strange bedfellows. [chuckle] [wink]
Homer: [thinking] Aaaaaagh! [aloud] Sorry, Mr. Burns, but I don't go in for these backdoor shenanigans. Sure, I'm flattered, maybe even a little curious, but the answer is no!
4. Radio Bart
Bart: [over the radio] Rod! Todd! This is God!
Rod: How did you get on the radio?
Bart: Whaddya mean, how did I get on the radio? I created the universe! Stupid kid.
Todd+Rod: [fall to their knees and clasp their hands]
Todd: Forgive my brother. We believe you.
Bart: Talk is cheap. Perhaps I'll test a guy's faith. Walk through the wall! I will remove it for you.
Rod: [walks into the wall] [thud]
5. Bart On The Road
On the road, we meet a man traveling in a station wagon with his
family. He has had about all he can take from his rowdy kids.
"If you kids can't keep your hands to yourselves," he yells, "I'm
gonna turn this car around, and there'll be no Cape Canaveral for
anybody!" The kids instantly quiet down, but Bart's car travels by,
and Nelson, seeing that the window is open, slaps the man on the
head. "That's it!" he yells. "Back to Winnipeg!"
6. Mr. Plow
Agent: Now, before I give you the check, one more question. This place
``Moe's'' you left just before the accident. This is a business of some kind?
Homer: [thinks] Don't tell him you were at a bar! Gasp! But what else is open at night?
[aloud] It's a pornography store. I was buying pornography.
[thinks] Heh heh heh. I would'a never thought of that.
7. Lisa's Substitute
Homer: Hey, just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand!
8. Lemon Of Troy
Homer2: [chuckles] Don't you get it, Springfield? It's over. You lose!
Now if you'll excuse me, all this talk has made me hungry.
[bites into a lemon; his face contorts at the bitterness]
Guide: What does the future hold for us? Heh. Let's just say we have a few ideas up our sleeve.
Homer: Like what?
Guide: Um, I'd rather not get into it right now.
Homer: Why not?
Guide: All right, we don't have any ideas for the future. We gotnothing. Happy?
Homer: [whiny] No.
10. Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie
Homer: You know, when I was a boy, I really wanted a catcher's mitt,
but my dad wouldn't get it for me. So I held my breath until
I passed out and banged my head on the coffee table.
[cheerily] The doctor thought I might have brain damage.
Bart: Dad, what's the point of this story?
Homer: [cheerily] I like stories.
11. A Star Is Burns
Audience: Boo! Boo!
Burns: Smithers...are they booing me?

Hans: I was saying "Boo-urns"...

McBain: Ja, thank you, ja, that's nice. Let's say hello to my music guy, Skoey. [Skoey bows]
That is some outfit, Skoey. It makes you look like a homosexual.
Whoa, maybe you all are homosexuals too!
16. Homer At The Bat
Smithers: [whispers in Jose Canseco's ear]
Jose: I get $50,000 to play one game?

Jose: Well, it's a pay cut, but what the hey. It sounds like fun.

Marge: Homer J. Simpson, I never want to see you again!
Marge slams the door and Homer sits there taping his fingers and moving his eyes from side to side. He then picks up the phone and dials.

Ned: Well, howdy, Reverend Lovejoy. Nice to see you there ... on my lawn ... with your dog.
Lovejoy: Oh, oh, ooh, bad dog! Look at that, right on Ned's lawn. Now how could you do such a thing? [quietly to the dog] Good boy, don't stop now. Bad dog, I condemn you to Hell.
Ned: Better get the old snow shovel back from Homer, eh? [leaves]
Lovejoy: [to dog] Good boy, don't stop the music.
19. Homer's Enemy
Lisa: Can I go downstairs and see what Dad's doing?

The kids watching laugh. Skinner shudders in frustration.
Skinner: You listen to me, son. You've just started school, and the path you choose now may be the one you follow for the rest of your life! Now, what do you say?
[Bart looks at Skinner, then Jimbo. It's his moment of truth.]
Bart: Eat my shorts.
Skinner: All right, I'll ea...eat your shorts?!
Bart: Yeah, eat my shorts! [singing to "Batman" theme] Buttman! Na na na na na na na na, Buttman!
"Buttman?!" Principal Skinner exclaims before dragging Bart off.

Marge: You don't have a cousin Frank.
Homer: He became Francine back in '76. Then he joined that cult. I
think her name is Mother Shabubu now.
