** "Dangerous Curves" is an unusual example. It's basically a parody of the 1967 Audrey Hepburn/Albert Finney movie ''Two For The Road'', but it's done so subtly that a lot of people didn't even suspect that might be a parody. Since a majority of ''Simpsons'' viewers have probably never even heard of ''Two For The Road'', that was probably intentional.
