Quote of the Day

Deep Space Homer8

“Uh, question for the barbecue chef: don’t you think there is an inherent danger in sending underqualified civilians into space?” – Reporter
“I’ll field this one.  The only danger is if they send us to that terrible planet of the apes . . . wait a minute, Statue of Liberty, that was our planet!  You maniacs!  You blew it up!  Damn you!  Damn you all to hell!” – Homer Simpson

    The best part of this bit is the immediate cut to Barney collapsing. I never fail to laugh at it.

    In one way, you’re both winners. But in another, more accurate way, Barney – is the winner

    Don Del Grande…. I miss his reviews on SNPP.

    Sigh.

    two things:
    1. I like the barbeque chef reference – I wonder if I’ll be sent in to space one day…

    2. Deep Space Homer reminds me of one of my favourite Simpsons lines: Homer – “I’m not one for taking new jobs on a whim, but as they say in the snow plow business, I’m your astronaut”

    This is another one of those quotes that I’m amazed hasn’t been used for a QotD before now. Great stuff :)

    eh, I never loved this episode as many Simpsons fans do. As much as I love Hank Azaria as a voice and “regular” actor, It was listening to him voicing Buzz Aldrin that I started to notice that this voice sounded a lot like his other generic male characters.

    I never cared much for the whole Homer goes to space, or the chip-eating hommage to Kubrick’s 2001.

    I think I liked the whole build up to Homer going to space, but once he was there, it started to become a bit gimmicky. the hommages become less subtle and more “let’s re-enact Movie X, but replace Homer with Character Y and make him say something stupid!”
