YMMV / The Simpsons S 5 E 15 Deep Space Homer

  • "Funny Aneurysm" Moment / Harsher in Hindsight: The concerns over whether the shuttle will survive reentry are more painful since the destruction of the space shuttle Columbia in its reentry in 2003.
    • Also, Homer's line of "I don't any sign of Barney "Let's-Crash-The-Spaceship-Into-The-White-House-And-Kill-The-President" Gumbel." became this after 9/11 as that was rumored to be one of the intended targets/objectives of the terrorists, only to be deterred by the passengers/crew of United Airlines Flight 93.
  • Memetic Mutation: The nigh-legendary "And I for one, welcome our new [X] overlords" meme.
    • To a less legendary degree, as Barney Gumble goes from sobered-up and fit to drunk again, "It BEGINS!".
