    I guess, you can kinda call where Skinner says “but this is just an empty box” exposition, but it works – perhaps it’s the tone of his voice, but i find that the fact that he says it is funny.

    Obviously there’s no exposition needed when we see poor Uter with his chocolatey fingers and mouth.

      People do vocalize what they observe, you know. Exposition is when it’s said needlessly, to help the audience understand.

    Typical. The one time I decide “Okay, I’ll ignore Dead Homers from now on, want to form my own opinions”, there’s no posts to ignore!

Useful Legal Tidbit

Even though it’s obvious to anyone with a functional frontal lobe and a shred of morality, we feel the need to include this disclaimer. This website (which openly advocates for the cancellation of a beloved television series) is in no way, shape or form affiliated with the FOX Network, the News Corporation, subsidiaries thereof, or any of Rupert Murdoch’s wives or children. “The Simpsons” is (unfortunately) the intellectual property of FOX. We and our crack team of one (1) lawyer believe that everything on this site falls under the definition of Fair Use and is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. No revenue is generated from this endeavor; we’re here because we love “The Simpsons”. And besides, you can’t like, own a potato, man, it’s one of Mother Earth’s creatures.
