Treehouse of Horror V
*Fun fact!* This was the very first Simpsons related thing I ever watched!
Bart gets in trouble for a prank and Principal Skinner discusses the problem of having too many students constantly being in detention. Lunchlady Doris also brings up the fact that the meat served in the cafeteria is far from satisfactory, and Jimbo trips her while she's carrying a pot of stew. The stew gets all over him and Skinner takes a taste of stew and enjoys the Jimbo/stew combination, and forces him to work in the cafeteria.
The next day the school serves "Sloppy Jimbos" and everyone loves them, especially the teachers. Üter cuts in line and is sent to detention, and the next day the school serves "Üterbraten". Bart and Lisa begin to get suspicious and eventually so many students are placed in permanent detention that the only ones left are them and Milhouse.
The three kids try to escape, but get cornered above a giant food processor and Milhouse falls in. The teachers then push Bart and Lisa in and Bart wakes up screaming, realizing it was just a nightmare. Marge assures him he has nothing to worry about, except for the fog that turns people inside out (it then happens).
Lisa: Bart, does it strike you as odd that Üter disappeared and suddenly they're serving us this mysterious food called "Üterbraten"?
Principal Skinner: Oh relax kids, I've got a gut feeling Üter's around here somewhere! *laughs* After all, isn't there a little Üter in all of us? *laughs louder* In fact, you might even say we just ate Uter, and he's in our stomachs... right now! *laughs maniacally* Wait, scratch that one.
Best Scene: Willie attempts to save the kids, but for the third time in ToH 5 he gets axed in the back, even saying " Ah, I'm bad at this." The kids get pushed back to a platform above a food processor, and Bart comments that they'll be fine. Milhouse falls in, and Bart (less convincingly) states that maybe someone will "save the Simpsons kids".
Night of the Dolphin
Treehouse of Horror XI
This segment is based off the film Day of the Dolphin, I’ve never seen it and always thought it was somewhat a parody of the movie The Birds. Eons ago, dolphins lived on the land but were eventually driven into the sea by humans. When Lisa releases their leader from his SeaWorld prison he begins his operation to retake the earth.
Mayor Quimby: Please, we’re all frightened and horny but we can’t let some killer dolphins keep us from living and scoring.
The townspeople observing and walking through the army of dolphins only to start a city-wide battle between both. In the following scene the townspeople have lost and are now residing in the ocean.
The Devil and Homer Simpson
Treehouse of Horror IV
Homer is asleep at work and dreams about donuts, and when he wakes up he runs to grab one only to realize they're all gone. He declares that he would sell his soul for a donut, at which point the devil (Ned Flanders) appears and the two strike up a contract. Homer ends up eating all but one bite and mocks Flanders that he outsmarted the devil, but ends up eating it that night anyway.
Flanders returns to collect on his end of the deal, but Lisa implores him to hold a trial. Flanders agrees but takes Homer to hell for the day anyway. When they return the next day the trial is held with the "Jury of the Damned" present, a batch of some of the most diabolical figures in history. Lionel Hutz, Homer's Lawyer, is of course no help at all.
Marge shows the jury a picture of her and Homer being married, and on the back it shows that Homer pledged his soul to her, so the deal is off. Aggravated by this setback, Flanders turns Homer's head into a donut, and he is forced to stay in the house because the entire police force is waiting outside with coffee mugs in hand.
Best Quote (Matt):
Lionel Hutz: Very well, but first some ground rules. Number one, we get bathroom breaks every half hour.
Ned Flanders: Agreed! Number two, the jury will be chosen by me!
Lionel Hutz: Agreed... no, wait...
Ned Flanders: Silence! I give you the jury of the damned. Benedict Arnold, Lizzie Borden, Richard Nixon...
Richard Nixon: But I'm not dead yet. In fact, I just wrote an article for Redbook.
Ned Flanders: Hey listen, I did a favor for you!
Richard Nixon: Yes, Master.
Ned Flanders: *continuing* John Wilkes Booth, Blackbeard the Pirate, John Dillinger, and the starting line of the 1976 Philadelphia Flyers.
Best Quote (Josh):
Homer: Ned, you're the devil?
Ned: It's always the one you least suspect.
Best Scene (Matt):
Homer is sent to Hell for a day and is force fed donuts as a punishment. Some time (and several hundred pounds) later, Homer has eaten them all and the demon stares at him in disbelief.
Best Scene (Josh):
The night of the same day Homer made his deal with the devil and insulted him by not eating the entire doughnut, Homer is shown walking to the fridge barely awake. As he opens it you see an array of desirable snacks but you see on a plate the last bit of the donut with multiple warning signs around it. Homer grabs it and says "Mmm, forbidden doughnut" as he gobbles the last piece up, finalizing the deal with the devil.
