Last night we were treated to the annual Halloween special of The Simpsons which is now up to the "Treehouse of Horror XX." Yeah, nothing makes us feel older than seeing two XX's after that title.
Luckily, The Simpsons proved that twenty Halloween specials were not too many and the episode proved to be a fantastic one. The episode was broken into three stories: "Dial 'M' for Murder," "Don't Have a Cow, Mankind," and "The Musical."
Our personal favorite was the second, in which the town of Springfield became zombies and the Simpsons had to protect Bart when they found out he was the cure. Great episode and some great Simpsons quotes.
Here's just some of our favorites from the episode:
Homer Simpson: Lighten up ladies, it's not cheating if you're wearing a costume | permalink
Principal Skinner: Lisa Simpson in detention? My horoscope told me I'd see something interesting today, but I thought that'd be the horoscope itself | permalink
Lisa: Apu, how did you survie?
Apu: Well, as a vegetarian, I did not consume any tainted meat and as a convenience store owner, I am armed to the teeth
Marge: I can't kill her, she's Lisa's god mother
Apu: You can apologize in hell
Marge: I guess I could! | permalink
Marge: What kind of civilized people eat the body and blood of their savior?
[camera pans to Reverend Lovejoy...]
Kang: This is the best musical I've sene in lightyears
Kodos: Light years measure distance, not time! | permalink
Homer: Marge, can you still love a man that's half beer?
Marge: I always have | permalink
