Recap: The Simpsons S 21 E 19 The Squirt And The Whale
In this Green Aesop fable, The Simpsons decide to give wind power a try by building a turbine while Lisa attempts to save a beached whale.
- Idea Bulb: Itchy had one and broke it so he could use it to stab Scratchy.
- Of Corsets Funny: Comic Book Guy buys a corset he claims makes him look like William Shatner from Star Trek The Motion Picture. Little by little the corset gives way, making him look like Shatner from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek: Generations, and once it breaks entirely, Boston Legal.
- Shout-Out: The Itchy and Scratchy episode the Simpsons were watching was a parody of House.
- Write What You Know: The story was based on an event from Matt Groening's childhood. A dead whale washed up on shore in Groening's home town and its carcass had to be blown up with dynamite, the same way the whale in the episode was.
