“Alright, Lisa, if you don’t want lamb chops, there’s lots of other things I can make, chicken breast, rump roast, hot dogs…” – Marge Simpson

    In preparation for another pointless milestone and the return of Frank Grimes:

    I always liked how Lisa imagines all those entrails of various animals comprising the hot dog, but rewatching that GIF you so cleverly animated up there, I just noticed how Lisa not only imagines an entire raw rotisserie chicken when she thinks of “chicken breast”, but she imagines an entire one coming from the chest of a chicken. That sure is one giant chicken.

      Actually, correct the above to say “all those entrails of various animals, plus the parts of a shoe“.

      This episode is great, but I think this is the turning point where Lisa’s preachiness starts to get overbearing, and I don’t think they ever got it right again after this (I say this knowing this has probably been said a thousand times already). For further proof, look no further than that Zombie Simpsons episode where Lisa becomes a Buddhist, one that I consider a really weak repeat of what this episode did much better.

        Thank God I’m not the only one who noticed that. I think it’s because the guest stars of this episode (Paul McCartney and his then-wife Linda) said they wouldn’t do the episode unless Lisa stayed a vegetarian in the end.

        And I always thought the episode where Lisa converts to Buddhism was a weak rehash of the episode where Homer starts his own religion after he stays home from church during a blizzard and actually has a good time. I mean, yeah, both Lisa the Vegetarian and She of Little Faith have the premise of Lisa getting involved in something that makes everyone around her upset/concerned for her and a celebrity guest star teaches Lisa to be tolerant of others, but I saw shades of Homer the Heretic as well.

        It was one of those episodes where the show did something different and/or made one of the characters go out-of-character succesfully, yet Zombie Simpsons never understood why they worked in the first place. “Lisa’s Wedding”, “Bart on the Road”, “Mrs Lisa Goes to Washington”, “Bart vs Australia”, “You Only Move Twice”, “Deep Space Homer”… heck, you can include “Marge on the Lam” and “Bart Gets An Elephant” too. And, of course, “Homer’s Enemy”.

        The problem here is that Lisa being passionate about a cause isn’t a bizarre idea (“Bart After Dark” had a B plot like that too, and that was a pretty solid episode), but here Lisa goes to the point of actively defending her cause without anyone else involved, and that’s something we didn’t see her do before. In “Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy” she contacted a few people, in “Whacking Day” she spent most of the time trying to convince her parents about the cruelty, in “Mrs Lisa Goes to Washington” all she did was to write a new discourse and risked losing the first prize.

        That “Lisa the Vegetarian” mostly worked was a feat, sure.
