McNerney @{tpm} observes that Bart's 415%skull-and-crossbones T-shirt he wears for the jump across the gorge 415%has a skull with ``Bart-spikes''. 416%But Jym Dyer @{jd} recalls that the 416%X-rays in ``Bart Gets Hit By A Car'' shows a 416%normal skull. (Normal for cartoon characters, that is.) Bart's spiked skull 416%is clearly a matter of artistic license on his part. 417%>> The concert 418%>>> General notes 419%Schubert's Unfinished Symphony and Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture are a 419%bit too highbrow (and difficult!)\ for a bunch of eight-year-olds. 420%Mr. Largo counts, ``five, six, seven, eight'' before giving the 420%downbeat. Unfortunately, the Unfinished Symphony begins in 12/8 time. 420%(So he really should have counted either, ``7 8 9 10 11 12'' or just 420%``3 4''.) And, of course, the tempo he sets is nothing like the tempo 420%the orchestra plays. (And, the symphony doesn't even begin that way. 420%Mr. Largo skipped the introductory bars.) 421%There is no saxophone part in the Unfinished Symphony, a fortiori, no 421%saxophone solo. 422%The playing itself was down to school standards. Despite Mr. Largo's 422%exhortation of ``Remember children, stay together,'' they fall out of 422%step at the moment the first note is played. And the conclusion of 422%the 1812 Overture was the embodiment of school concerts. Everybody 422%had long since fallen out of step with everybody else, and moved on to 422%bigger and better things like playing the wrong note. 423%When Homer says, ``How much longer was Sherbert planning on making 423%this junk!'', the symphony comes to an end, and all applaud. 423%Unfortunately, what was played was only the end of the first movement. 423%The piece was only halfway finished---to the extent that `halfway 423%finished' applies to an unfinished symphony. 423%Perfectly in keeping with 423%what always happens at school concerts. (Parents applaud during 423%any break in the action.) 424%And as the Symphony started, you could hear Maggie sucking away. 425%Principal Skinner announced that it was the first in a series of Saturday 425%Evening Concerts. This is way beyond the abilities of a student orchestra. 425%It typically takes grammar school orchestras 10 to 14 weeks to prepare for 425%a single concert. (Unless they intend to have other performing groups 425%fill in, like Bart's fourth-grade dance demonstration.) 426%The only thing missing that I could think of was flashbulbs going off 426%intermittently as eager parents take pictures of their kids, unaware that 426%the flashes are immensely distracting. (And useless beyond 15 feet.) 427%>>> Lisa's solo 428%Brian Heil @{bh3} makes 428%another interesting note about the concert and Lisa's sax solo: ``I haven't 428%paid close enough attention in the past to say if Lisa is lefthanded, but I 428%assume she is, seeing the way she held the saxophone. Of course lefthanded 428%sax players hold it the same way as righthanded players... in fact it is nearly 428%impossible to play a sax as it was pictured!'' 429%>>> Todd's solo 430%Theron Stanford @{tws} identifies Todd's solo as `My Heart at Thy Sweet Voice' 430%from the opera ``Samson and Delilah'' by Camille Saint-Sa\"ens. 431%Alan J Rosenthal @{ajr} notes that Todd's bowing was very odd. When he held 431%a note, he stopped the bow movement. Of course, this would stop the sound. 432%>> Butchered in America 433%Scenes were removed from the original US airing to make room for the ``Do 433%the Bart Man'' video on first airing, then again for a Gulf War Update 433%when the episode repeated.

The depiction of the two bad guys is hilarious (I'll try to 1600%explain why below), as well as the accent itself. First, the 1600%names: Maurice, Cesar (this should be C\'esar, with acute accent, but 1600%who cares?)\ and Huguolin. Maurice is a typical French name, very 1600%common for men in their 40's or 50's. Definitly out of fashion, and 1600%usually associated with countryside flavor (which tends to be 1600%pejorative nowadays). Needless to say, this doesn't reflect the 1600%average IQ of all the Maurices in France, but so there. 1601%Cesar and Huguolin are two very famous characters of French 1601%litterature, from the novel ``Manon des sources'' (Manon of the 1601%Springs), two corrupted, bad-manered peasants of the 30's. They don't 1601%happen to make wine, but steal the water from another guy's land by 1601%obstructing his spring. In fact, the story is rather intricate and 1601%probably not interesting for Americans. But Cesar and Huguolin 1601%represent the archetype of the typical narrow-minded, twisted farmer 1601%of France at the beginning of the century, ready to commit any abuse 1601%for a little money. Needless to say, this doesn't reflect the average 1601%behaviour of all the farmers in France, but so there. 1602%The funniest thing all along the episode is the accent. The point is, 1602%except the policeman (who speaks such a accentless French that it's 1602%funny anyway), all the French speaking characters have a 1602%American accent. Furthermore, Cesar and Huguolin's voicers have 1602%tried to imitate the French countryside accent, which kept me rolling on 1602%the floor with laughter. Some of the sentences are very hard to catch, 1602%even for a native, and a few words remain a mystery for me. Oh well. I 1602%also like the way the French guys speak English (a very good catch of 1602%the real French accent, putting `e' at the ends of sentences, or 1602%rolling the `r'). 1603%Now, for those who plan to go to France for a vacation or an exchange 1603%student program, let me state this: It is possible to go in September, 1603%to the southwest of France (the Bordeaux region) and spend a 1603%marvelous (although exhausting) time, gathering the grapes. Lots of 1603%gigantic meals, free wine and girls (well, at least wine...), 1603%in a friendly atmosphere. No Cesar or Huguolin, and no risk of 1603%anti-freeze! Along this line, it's absolutly that some crooks 1603%tried to add anti-freeze to the wine in order to make it taste ``older''. 1603%(Normally it takes at least one and up to 20 years to make a decent 1603%wine.) This, of course, is prohibited and the production is severely 1603%controlled. (I speak for France, now the situation can be somewhat 1603%different in Italy or Spain, which produce lots of cheap wine.) 1604%And out of curiosity, is it real Albanian? 1605%>>> Now for the French part 1606%{\catcode`\|\active\def\({\Q\parskip0pt\QuoteMulti}\let\\\medbreak 1606%\def\){\endQuoteMulti\eQ}\let\,\c\def|#1: #2|{\QuoteLine{#1}{#2}\endQuoteLine} 1607%Before Bart arrives... 1607%\( 1607%{|C\'esar: Ah, Maurice.

(i.e. drink 2034%overlays Homer's hand.) 2035%For some scenes, the bottles on the counter seem to move/disappear/change 2035%shape. 2036%After Moe places the towel over his shoulder, it disappeared after Mr. 2036%Bannister asked about the inventor of the `Flaming Moe'. 2037%A FF on Homer falling from the window shows several chain links 2037%breaking--something that couldn't possibly happen. 2038%>> Miscellaneous 2039%Also due to Dave Hall {dh} 2040%When the Camera pans from the TV room, it appears that Lisa's room is above 2040%the TV room, yet later, from the back view of the house, Lisa's room is 2040%over the kitchen. 2041%The note-pad next to the phone only appeared when Bart wanted Homer to say 2041%his name. 2042%Bart threw the note-pad to the floor, yet when Lisa's friend pointed her 2042%finger at Bart, the note-pad is nowhere to be seen. 2043%The TV remote disappeared from the couch for one scene. 2044%Only four girls went past Homer as they chased Bart. (Where did the 2044%fifth girl go?) 2045%While Homer sat at the dining room table, his Duff beer is placed in 2045%front of him, but you only see it during one scene only. 2046%> Comments and other observations 2047%>> A sappy ending? 2048%Stephen L. Peters {slp}: Where would Homer and Barney go? Like any 2048%sitcom, the rich get richer, and the poor get rich and then blow it all. 2049%Jamie Ide {ji}: How can you call that a sappy ending? Moe was about to 2049%close a million dollar deal and give half to Homer when Homer blew it. 2049%Moe's was back to being a dive bar (I'm sure Moe squandered his profits) 2049%and Homer still got no credit for inventing the Flaming Homer. IMHO, that 2049%was the least sappy ending so far this season. 2050%>> Potent potables 2051%>>> The Flaming Homer/Moe 2052%Ron Carter {rc} politely provides the recipe: 2052% Tequila, Schnapps, Creme De Menthe, and the `secret' ingredient: 2052% Krusty's Non Narkotik Kough Syrup For Kids (``Doc'' Krusty on the label) 2053%J. D. Baldwin {jdb} asks, ``If Moe had split the money and the credit for 2053%the drink with Homer, would it have been called the Flaming Ho-Moe?'' 2054%>>> Virgin Moe 2055%Sean Graves (sean@cs.tamu.edu) asks: So if Lisa had a Virgin Moe, what 2055%would that be? Flaming cough syrup? Hmmm. 2056%>>> Harvey Wallbanger 2057%In case you didn't know, the `Frank Wallbanger' joke was a reference to 2057%this drink, consisting of orange juice, vodka, and Galiano. 2058%>> Eye on Springfield 2059%You'd have hoped that an Emmy-award-winning reporter wouldn't stoop to the 2059%level of info-tainment. 2060%J. D. Baldwin {jdb} observes that the episode originally aired during the 2060%1991 November Sweeps. ``This is the kind of thing that those 2060%`info-tainment' shows stoop to during sweeps. I laughed until I stopped. 2060%Not that I'm bad-mouthing bikini documentaries, you understand.'' 2061%The episode repeated during the 1993 May Sweeps, the week after Cheers' 2061%final episode. You make the call. 2062%>> The wax game 2063%Theron Stanford {tws} thinks that that two different girls played the wax 2063%game. ``That's what was so funny--Lisa came up with a really clever idea 2063%to make the one girl feel good, but then left the other girl hanging.'' 2064%>> The jinx 2065%David Hyatt {dh2} explains: ``If we say something at the same time, 2065%whoever says JINX last has to be silent until someone says their name. 2065%Played this all the time with my cousins. Hours of amusement!'' 2066%>> Flaming Moe's bouncer 2067%Some people have suggested that the bouncer was Dreaderick ``I really 2067%[bleep]ed up bad'' Tatum, but I disagree. 2068%(1) The bouncer's name was Bernard. 2068%(2) Bernard has a deep voice. Tatum has a high-pitched voice. 2069%>> Ms. Krabappel 2070%Catherine Stanton {cs}: Just a word on Mrs. Krabappel (slut). I've 2070%always suspected that my teachers were like that after work. Not only is 2070%she a slut, but an ugly one at that. 2071%Stephen L. Peters {slp}: So far, we've seen Ms. K in the back seat of a 2071%car with a sushi chef and trying to seduce Lisa's substitute teacher. I'm 2071%not surprised she'd start hanging around bars if the opportunity arose... 8^) 2072%>> Bart's First Kiss? 2073%Hardly, notes Chris Baird {cjb}. He presents the Bart Simpson Kiss List: 2074% kisses racing slip [Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire] 2074% kissed by Homer [Bart the Genius] 2074% kissed by Sherry and Terry [Homer's Odyssey] 2074% kisses Homer [There's No Disgrace Like Home] 2074% kissed by Marge [Jacques to be Wild] 2074% kissed by pretty French brunette [The Crepes of Wrath] 2074% kisses Ms. Krabappel [Bart Gets an F] 2074% kissed by Marge (in dream) [Bart vs. Thanksgiving] 2074% kissed by Lisa [Bart vs. Thanksgiving] 2074% kissed by Marge [Bart the Daredevil] 2074% kissed by Homer (twice) [One Fish, Two Fish, Blowfish, Blue Fish] 2074% kissed by pretty lady [Saturdays of Thunder] 2074% kissed by `Susan' [Flaming Moe] 2075%>> Maggie's First Word? 2076%General consensus is that Maggie's ``Moe'' existed only in Homer's 2076%hallucination and therefore doesn't count. (Similar to her, ``It's your 2076%fault I can't talk!'' in `Bart vs. Thanksgiving'.) Some believe that 2076%Maggie actually did say something, but Homer heard it as `Moe'. Contrary 2076%evidence: (1) The rest of the family didn't seem to react much to Maggie's 2076%alleged first word. (2) Homer later hallucinated talking daisies, which 2076%means that he can hallucinate things that simply don't exist. 2077%>> Marge's sarcasm 2078%I was actually mildly shocked by Marge's outburst of sarcasm. (Which made 2078%it all the funnier, of course.) Seemed out of character for her. 2079%>> Aerosmith 2080%Mike Berman {msb} identifies the closing music as `Young Lust' from their 2080%album `Pump'. 2081%> Distribution notice and Acknowledgments 2082%Episode summaries Copyright 1991-1993 by Raymond Chen.
