We’ve already seen a lot of ups and downs with Homer and Lisa throughout the episodes so far and we’re nowhere near done but this one is especially dear. When Homer decides to get cable illegally he squares off with Lisa because she has just recently learned her commandments and that the 8th commandment is thou shalt not steal! Lisa doesn’t want she or her family to go to hell so she attempts to talk some sense into homer even though we all know how homer is. After finally realizing how much stealing he’s doing in his life and how much anxiety he’s causing himself. Make sure to listen to Greg and I break it down and rate it at the end of the episode and to hear all of the goofs and fun easter eggs we caught.

Why do birds suddenly appear, every time I watch this episode? Oh yeah, because it’s a beautiful story of Homer and Marge meeting. Homer is and has been, at the very least, inattentive. Neglectful if you will. However, his heart has always been in the right place. He loves Marge, and has since the first time he saw her, when birds suddenly appeared. He tried to take her out, but it didn’t work. He tried to trick her, and it backfired. Traveling back to their first meeting and reliving all the moments all over again is a great way to rekindle the love of The Simpsons, like Homer and Marge rekindle their love for each other, at least once a season.
