* While he might have ended up on the losing end (partly thanks to a hydrant) his fight with Tom in ''Brother from the same Planet'' was all kinds of epic.

* "Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment": Home successfully outwitting the Springield police, and then Rex Banner, running a beer smuggling operation from the basement. Not to mention successfully managing to brew forty-eight different kinds of alcoholic beverage in bathtubs (at least until the stills explode). A point of note: Homer is never actually ''caught'' by the police, he turns himself in so Wiggum can get his job back.
** Also, Homer's smuggling scheme involving a complex system of pipes running from the bowling alley all the way to Moe's. That takes some impressive engineering.



* Marge single-handedly destroying Mr. Burns' gubernatorial campaign in 'Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish.':

* The very first aired episode gets one, with Lisa politely but firmly telling Patty and Selma to stop insulting Homer constantly. Her eloquence completely silences the two. WHILE WATCHING CARTOONS.
-->'''Lisa:''' Aside from the fact that he has the same frailties as all human beings, he's the only father I have. Therefore, he is my model of manhood, and my estimation of him will govern the prospects of my adult relationships. So I hope you bear in mind that any knock at him is a knock at me, and I am far too young to defend myself against such onslaughts.
-->'''Selma (cowed):''' ...Go watch your cartoon dear.

* In "Last Exit to Springfield", Burns shuts off Springfield's power to extort his striking employees into giving up. They indeed look doubtful for a minute, until Lisa starts strumming her guitar.
-->'''Lisa:''' ''(singing)'' So we'll march day and night, by the big cooling tower-
-->'''All:''' They have the plant, ''but we have the power''.
-->'''Burns:''' They're not sad at all; they're actually singing! (...) Tell Simpson I'm ready to deal.
* In "She of Little Faith", Lisa is the only one who criticizes the church's transition to a place of materialism and peer pressure.



** There's also the time when Mr. Burns tries to rob her and she shoots him with his own gun ("Who Shot Mr. Burns, Part Two")[[note]]even though it was an accident on Mr. Burns' part, [[TooDumbToLive since he didn't put the safety on the gun or get a holster that actually held the gun in]][[/note]], sharpshot Springfield Mafia members before they can kill her father ("Papa's Got a Brand New Badge"), saves Homer from drowning ("Hello Gutter, Hello Fadder"), and tracks him down when he is kidnapped ("Midnight Towboy").

* Despite all the critical backlash and its rather floaty place in continuity, ''The Principal and The Pauper'' has several, most noticeably Agnes' speech at the end, when, at the absolute limit with [[spoiler:Skinner and Tamzarian]], just ''rails'' on the former for the crap she's had to put up with between the two of them. It's powerful enough that [[spoiler:when she orders the rest back into the car (read: a car that's not her's nor did she drive,) everyone that's present at the time quietly and awkwardly exit the building.]]

** Then there was his plan at the end to get the tree back. [[spoiler:He has Flanders park his RV in front of a hospital so it will be taken to the impound lot where the tree is being kept. The dads then sneak out of the RV at night to tie the tree to the roof while Bart opens up the gate so they can drive out. They manage to escape despite the Shelbyvillians catching them in the act and trying to stop them.]]
-->'''Homer:''' Woo hoo!\\
'''Bart:''' Eat my shorts, Shelbyville!\\
'''Both:''' Eat my shorts!

* In Dog Of Death, after Burns [[TheLudovicoTechnique straps Bart's gentle pet dog to a chair, sets up a machine that holds the dog's eyes open, and forces the dog to watch several images of animal abuse]] to, as Burns himself put it, [[KickTheDog turn the dog into "a vicious, soulless killer..."]] and after Burns sends said dog after Bart, the dog's memories of good times with Bart prompt him to lick Bart's face instead of attacking him. When the other dogs come after Bart, said pet dog growls at the other dogs and scares them off, only to proceed to lick Bart's face AGAIN. Burns' attempt at breaking the dog's spirit yields, if any change in the dog at all, a result of the dog [[TookALevelInBadass taking a level in badass]], while still no longer being on Burns' side in the long run.

** Bart and Lisa get theirs by appealing to his Ego claiming he was just an underling and pawn to the whole Mastermind and make him confess in rage that he did it and winds up him getting put back in Jail.
