    I may be alone, but I personally really liked this episode. It wasn’t as good as “I Love Lisa”, but it did give us some memorable Ralph quotes (such as this one).

      You ain’t alone since I like it to & see no reason not to.

        Ah, good. I’ve just heard some mixed opinions on this one (like some people think it was the ruination of Ralph as a character).

          Ralph in this episode has more of the random non-sequiturs he would become infamous for later, but he’s still a genuine character – a kind of slow kid who wants to have friends. In fact, I think this episode might have been Ralph’s last hurrah; we don’t see this kind of depth from him again after this.

            I think it’s kind of nice that they were able to make two different episodes with the same plot: Ralph attempts to befriend a Simpson kid.

      Yeah, I don’t mind this episode, either. I actually think it’s one of the better episodes from its season.

    Another one I use all the time. Although my legs are actually quite long, so it doesn’t always fit too well.

      I actually need to remember this line considering that I constantly suffer from keeping up with other people due to having shorter legs. (I’m just under five feet tall, so, yeah, I’m rather short.)

    Why do so many of the male characters (and even LIsa whenever she’s wearing pants) have such fat stomachs? Is it just the show’s drawing style?

      Yeah, I’ve noticed that, too. Lisa’s girth is especially interesting considering that she doesn’t look that heavy in some instances, but she looks pudgy in others. The animators seem more indecisive about her proportions than with some other characters.

      I think it’s intentional.
      The Simpsons’ universe is supposed to be deeply flawed and full of incompetent people, so combindd with some sitcomy ideas (male = stupid, women = more prepared and smarter), everybody is fat here.

      Of course there are some kernels of ideas here (women are more skilled in general because they need to work at least twice as much as their male counteparts, and it’s more socially acceptable to have a thin figure than being a fat person), which the show openly treated them in episodes like “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy”, but most of the times comes at the expense of fat people and women, which is why I usually never watch certain episodes like “King-Size Homer”.

      And yeah I get this is supposed to be a satire, and a mean satire, but still, I cannot be neutral in these topics.

        I’d gotten so used to it, that it still seems weird to me when the show acknowledges that Bart’s a tubby kid. That said, if it makes you feel any better, I think the abundance of fat regulars is partially due to Matt Groening’s early style. Remember how Ullman-era Bart and Lisa would jump between pumpkin-shaped and nearly as tall as Marge or Homer?

        Anyway, I think they thinned everyone up pretty early on in the show’s run, but by then, a lot of early designs were out, and really, rounder characters look more natural – something about those proportions suggests you kind of have to give them a thick silhouette. As odd as it is to say, I think making Bart fat kinda hides the fact that his head is the size of his torso.
