Food in the Simpsons

Also in the Homer weight gain episode:

His shopping trip shows some great products on the shelves. One I remember was a tube of something called Chubb.

Then he had his imaginary hill to climb from his current weight to the disability weight. The pig was encouraging him and homer took a bite out of the side of the pig.

And don't forget

Oh Margey you came and you found me a turkey

On my vacation away from workey

(To the tune of 'Mandy')

I'm reading the whole thread and it took a long time to get to "Marge you found me a turkey..." song! We find many reasons to sing that around our house. :raz:

Homer: "Don't think about beer. Don't think about beer. "

From "Duffless," the episode where Homer swears to give up beer. I had an audioclip of this on my desktop for ages. :laugh:

Well... Homer does mention "D'oh" all of the time. Maybe that's a subtle food reference too!

As for Duff Beer... it's got to be in like... 3/4 of the episodes!

Maybe this has already been mentioned.... I can't be bothered to read back that far.

Remember the Guatemalan insanity peppers? So hot, they made Homer hallucinate a talking coyote with the voice of Johnny Cash.

The Simpsons visit the new restaurant in Springfield with a 50's theme. The first item on the menu:

POLIO BURGERS

It was, but it bears re-mentioning.

"Hey mister, you don't wanna eat wax!!"

"Maybe I do, son...maybe I do..."

My fave episode animation-wise. Looks like the whole thing was drawn by Kurt and Chris Kirkwood of The Meat Puppets (or by someone who's spent entirely too much time in the desert, anyway).

"Mmm... 64 slices of American cheese."

I'm glad someone brought up the homer obesity episode. That's a classic. I wish I could remember quotes better.

Another episode I'd like to remember quotes from better is the Halloween episode where homer eats the forbidden donut. I love that Flanders is the devil. There are some great bits when Homer spends the night in hell and they try to do aversion torture on him by feeding him donut after donut and he never becomes averse. Here are some quotes:

Homer: (reading note) "Dear Homer, I. O. U. one emergency donut. Signed, Homer." Bastard! He's always one step ahead!

Sleepwalking he opens the fridge and finds the last bite in the frig with the sign "Forbidden Donut".

Homer: Mmmm. Forbidden donut.

After Homer's head has been turned into a donut:

Marge: Homer, stop picking at it!

Homer: Oh, but I'm so sweet and tasty!

I. can't. stop.

Old man: Take this doll, but beware; it carries a terrible curse.

Homer: Ooo, that's bad.

Old man: But it comes with a free serving of frozen yoghurt!

Homer: That's good!

Old man: The frozen yoghurt is also cursed.

Homer: That's bad.

Old man: But it comes with your choice of toppings!

Homer: That's good!

Old man: The toppings contain potassium benzoate...

Homer: (confused look)

Old man: That's bad.

Homer: Can I go now?

"Mmm... 64 slices of American cheese."

moe tries to explain "double indemnity" style insurance scam to homer--diagrams the fake car crash with an olive representing homer. homer pops the olive in his mouth and says, "mmmm.....me".

and then there's, "mmmmm...forbidden doughnut" from the treehouse of horror episode where flanders is the devil. this may be the definitive homer "mmmmm" in the age of atkins.

i can't believe with all the mentions of the obesity episode no one mentioned dr nick's advice on weight gain...

"instead of chewing on gum, chew on bacon."

also the eastern european cafeteria chef's recipe for gravy "it's just brown and water" which i think may also be my mothers recipe

Frosting Gobs cereal is a great one too...

and the Good Morning Burger...does ANYone remember that one?

and the one where Homer's golfing with Mr. Burns and Monty yells, "Use an open-faced club...a sand wedge!" and Homer replies, "Hmmmmm...open-faced club sandwich.."

or when Homer feels like a failure and he is conscientiously dipping his hand into a bag of flour and Marge says, "Oh, Homer...wouldn't you rather have your sugar bag?" and he says, "I don't deserve sugar."

there is actually a shopping mall here with these two related names in the food court: The Happy Sumo and Humphrey Yogurt....

I swear sometimes I live in Springfield, but then I remember that Springfield would be fun....

I can't believe no ones mentioned the episode where Marge & Homer go to the candy Con... and he picks the gummi Venus de Milo off the babysitter's tushy, then gets sued for sexual harrasment

I'm so glad someone mentioned the gummi Venus de Milo. I also liked when Homer and Lisa become restaurant critics and he starts reviewing Marge's cooking. Did anyone catch last week what was the only wine available at Moe's? What is it worth, anyway?

And of course, there is the Pulp Fiction riff between the policemen - a Krustyburger with cheese is called a quarter pounder with cheese. "Quarter pounder with cheese? Well, I can picture the cheese..."

Last night featured two episodes, including the landmark 350th, but it was #351 that rocked. "Scammer and Z-Dog" vending machines are installed in Springfield Elementary, and Bart ends up getting so overweight that he's sent to fat camp. This episode was almost purely food-related. My favorite scenes included:

* The fat camp instructor exhorting overweighties Kent Brockman, Rainer Wolfcastle and one other I forget to tame their ice-cream cravings by talking disparagingly to the stuff. Wolfcastle: "Now here's the scoop: Your Haagen days are over. I'm Baskin in your pain. I'm Robbin you of your life."

* Bart attempts to destroy the vending machine, which then threatens him with, "Yo! I'm gonna cap a pop in your ass!"

* Homer claiming, "I'm not too fat. I'm alive, aren't I?"

There were so many other good lines. Thank God for TiVo.

The episode in which Homer and Marge meet for the first time when Marge is at summer camp as a child. Homer falls into the lake and washes up on the shore of a 'fat camp'. The counselor/guard tells him that 'no one escapes from fat camp! The exit is up a gentle slope!'
