If you’re reading this, you’re a fan of America’s favourite TV family. And after 30 seasons, The Simpsons has finally been confirmed to be coming to an end by exec producer Al Jean.
You’re also probably giving this list a glance to see if we missed your favourite moments. There’s been 28 great seasons of The Simpsons, and it looks like two more will be coming our way, so the chances of including everyone’s top clip are very slim. We welcome your favourite moments in the comments at the bottom.
Behold – the best Simpsons moments ever, according to me.
“Lisa it’s your birthday, happy Birthday Lisa!”
It’s hard to believe that this episode aired waaay back in 1991 but, alas, it is true! Homer is mistaken for a free thinking activist and ends up in a mental institution where he meets Leon Kompowsky, a man who pretends to be Michael Jackson. Oh, it’s also Lisa’s birthday and because Bart usually forgets, he promises the best present ever.
“You can actually pinpoint the second his heart rips in half.”
This Valentine’s Day episodes has a plethora of different lines to quote: “Look in the tunk,” “You choo choo choose me?” “So, you like stuff?” The list goes on. This up and changed v-tines for ever. Oh, this was also the 15th episode of season 4, which aired on February 11th, 1993.
“Feels like I’m wearing Nothing at all!”
How many times have you went skiing and prayed what happens to Homer does not happen to you? This line comes from the 2000 classic “Little Big Mom”.
“Well, sir, there’s nothing on earth like a genuine, bona fide, electrified, six-car monorail!”
Back in 1993, Conan O’Brien wrote one of the most beloved Simpsons episodes ever: “Marge Vs. the Monorail”. The gist of the episode was that a conman named Lyle Lanely came to Springfield to swindle money from the town by convincing them to buy a new monorail transit system.
“Why’d I have the bowl Bart? Why’d I have the bowl?”
This comes from the 1997 episode “The Canine Mutiny.” Bart gets approved for a credit card and buys way too many things, including an expensive trained dog named “Laddie”.
“That’s a paddlin’
How many times have you quoted this? I imagine too many to keep track. Jasper takes over as a substitute teacher in the 1995 classic “The PTA Disbands.”
“Calm down Nediddly diddly diddly diddly”
In the 1996 episode “Hurricane Neddy”, Hurricane Barbara rolls through Springfield and poor Ned Flanders’ house is the only one destroyed. After the town comes together to rebuild his house terribly, Ned finally snaps.
“You’ll have to speak up, I’m wearing a towel”
For all of those people who experience hearing loss when not fully clothed, this is the quote for you. It comes from the 1994 episode “Bart Gets Famous.”
“I see you’ve played knifey spoony before”
If you haven’t said this before, you truly haven’t lived. This 1995 episode titled “Bart vs Australia” changed the way we looked at both knives and spoons forever.
“Up and atom!”
Rainer Wolfcastle aka McBain aka Radioactive Man has trouble learning his lines in the 1995 episode, simply called “Radioactive Man”.
