I thought that gay-marriage episode of The Simpsons was a total cop-out – not as bad as the Joe Millionaire false-ending cop-out but more along the lines of a Chris Carter X-Files ‘end of one season tease to movie and then not answer anything and tease to next season and still not answer anything’ cop-out. The best line was:
Marge: As long as two people love each other I don’t care if they have the same hoo hoo or ha ha.
Nelson: (suddenly appearing from offscreen) Ha ha!
I thought I would list my favorite Nelson Ha-Has.
- Ha ha – your mom changed. (Marge becomes a body builder)
- Ha ha – you’re nocturnal. (Nelson sees bats at the zoo)
- Ha ha – you’ve been usurped! That’s right, I said usurped. (Something with Principal Skinner, I believe)
- (To the tune of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony) Ha-ha-ha-HA! Ha-ha-ha-HA! (History lesson with Bart as Mozart, Lisa as Salieri and Nelson as Ludwig Van)
Willy: No! That’s my retirement fat!
