The Top 25 Simpsons Episodes of All Time: Part IV

As we approach the best five episodes of all time, your disagreement with the placement of episodes is sure to grow. Let me know how SMRT I am in the comments. If you missed Part I, Part II, or Part III, check them out!






10. Homer’s Enemy 823
A new worker at the power plant, Frank Grimes, becomes Homer’s enemy as he resents Homer’s ability to succeed despite his terrible work ethic.
Best Line: Grimes: “But this was a contest for children!” Lenny: “Yeah, and Homer beat their brains out.”
Best Moment: Everyone laughing as Grimes’ s coffin is lowered into the ground.






9. Deep Space Homer 515
In an attempt to reconnect with the everyman, NASA seeks to find an average shmoe to send into space. That man turns out to be Homer.
Best Line: “Default? The two sweetest words in the English language! de-FAULT de-FAULT de-FAULT!”
Best Moment: Homer floating through space eating potato chips.






8. Homer vs. the 18th Amendment 818
Beer is made illegal in Springfield and Homer begins bootlegging beer, earning himself the moniker Beer Baron.
Best Line: “I’ll get you, Beer Baron!” “No you won’t!” “Yes I will!” “D’OH!”
Best Moment: I’ll go with another line here, one of the Simpsons’ most quoted: “To beer. The cause of – and solution to – all of life’s problems.”






7. Homer’s Phobia 815
The Simpsons proves it can handle touchy social issues and stay hilarious. Fearing Bart may be gay, Homer sets off to turn him straight.
Best Line: “You know me, Marge. I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals FLAMING.”
Best Moment: Marge finally getting through to Homer that John, the antiques dealer, is, in fact, gay.






6. Treehouse of Horror V 606
My favorite of the “Treehouse of Horror” episodes, this episode contains the short about The Shining and also includes the scene where Homer discovers a time-traveling toaster.
Best quote: “No TV and no beer make Homer something, something.” “Go crazy?” “Don’t mind if I do!”

Best Moment: Watching it rain donuts.

Tune back in tomorrow as we finish off my countdown of the Top 25 Simpsons episodes of all time!
