YMMV / The Simpsons S 5 E 21 Lady Bouviers Lover

Go To

  • Big-Lipped Alligator Moment: While Burns brags to Smithers about being in love, he also expresses his joy to a florist, his personal trainer and President Clinton, who even remarks that he's glad he's finally found love. It makes sense as to why the former two would be there, but we never learn why the then-sitting president is just standing around in his office (sans bodyguards, no less) and how he would know about Burns' love life.
  • Crosses the Line Twice:
    • This line. Today it would be considered distastefully sexist, but it sill perversely funny.
    Burns: She said no to me! Do you know how many women have said no to me? 130, but only one since I've become a billionaire!
    • Bart being punched by adult delivery men. Not one, but three of them.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Homer is against the idea of his dad and Marge's mom getting married since it'll make them double in laws. The double in laws thing becomes true in a later episode when Abe marries Selma. Homer hasn't changed his thoughts on the subject one bit.

How well does it match the trope?
