Does anybody know where it's mentioned that Moe's Birthday is on the 24th of November?
I see several unofficial sources saying that but I never figured out where this date is actually coming from. 🤔

Well, if its the fandom wiki, then its 99% fanon content or theory crafting, and probably fake
 
What's the deal with the bit at the end of Smoke on the Daughter when the instructor guys walks off (after he shouts "You'll never stop big ballet!") doing doing jazz hands with his hat at a jaunty angle? It's something that always fell flat for me, because it goes on for ages, but I feel like its a reference I'm missing.
 
Hi can anyone tell me what episode has the following conversation:
Bart: you don’t have a tree house
Milhouse: my dad is saving up to buy apple seeds

Been looking for months. It was a fairly new episode if that helps ?

This is supposed to be Bob Fosse who was a famous choreographer. Big Ballet is a stand-in for Big Tobacco.
 
why did “E Pluribus Wiggum” end with no explanation as to who won the election? Is it a reference to something or am I looking too deep into a lazy ending?
 
I think it (the whole episode) was a satire to Democratic/Republic paties traditional opposition. And the solution is like they finally united, with Ralph.
Also the action took place during very early primary election, as I remember. So it could stay in that time (January'08, if you want) and don't do a time jump to the elections themselves.

Ah, thanks! I got that ballet was standing in for tobacco, but the bit with the dance and all lingers so long that I knew it had to be a reference to something.

To add to what @Bohdan said above, if I recall right, at the time of airing, the show was using a "Ralph Wiggum for President" slogan as a kind of marketing gimmick to tie in with the then-current US elections, so the episode ending was supposed to be the start of the mock Wiggum campaign they were pushing in reality. There's no proper conclusion because the events were supposed to be carrying on in the real world, but all that context's totally lost now.

Oh thank you, this makes sense

"You know, I'm here today as Luke Skywalker, but I'm also here to talk about Sprint. As you can see here, you stand up to save up to seventeen cents a month over the more dependable providers." - Mayored to the Mob.
I've never been sure if this was meant to be an in-episode ad or not. If not, I'm not too sure what the joke was...
 
The joke is that well-known actor mark hamill has been reduced to shilling for sprint and that his spiel is awful (17 cents a month isn't a great deal, and he openly admits the service isn't very dependable)

Presumably Ralph becoming president would have been too big a change to the status quo, but they also didn’t want to definitely show that he doesn’t win the election either.
 
This isn’t really a Simpsons question but more of a question about this forum
Idk where else to ask this
What’s a solution and why do only a few people have them

If someone makes a thread and marks it with a "question" tag, the original poster can give a post an "upvote," which marks the post upvoted as a solution, as in the answer to their question. I assume it came by default with the forum's move to xenforo in 2021.
 
Hello! I’m tryna document every time Skinner has a Vietnam flashback, and I feel like there’s one somewhere between seasons 16-25, where he’s performing a song on stage because one of the band members was absent (it was entertainment for his troop or something,,?) It’s been 3 years since I think I’ve watched that, and I’m not sure if it’s a fever dream or actually real lol. Anyone remember this?
This was the first post I made here fun fact, anyone whose watched the full show be fr, am I imagining this? (it sounds like something that wouldn’t happen but I vividly remember getting excited about it). No one responded so I’m assuming it’s not real or nobody knows, I’m checking again though cause I wanna have hopes

I’m watching the whole show right now for the first time, but I might not remember if I saw something like that.

I'd like to help if I could, but I really can't remember this scene! I guess it must've passed me by or something.

For a question of my own, something that's been puzzling me recently, with it being December and all, is what's the deal with the title of Marge Be Not Proud? Anyone have any idea if it's a reference to something or is there no real reason for the janky grammar?

I don't think there is any reference (at least I couldn't find any on Wikisimpsons or Wikipedia). It was at one point called "Bart the Stealer" thou, and I think its just janky grammar, although it could be a reference to Marge not been proud of her Son

Yeah, I couldn't find anything either (which is why I thought I'd ask), so you're probably right that it's just... because. It's such an odd choice to call it Marge Be Not Proud instead of Marge Isn't Proud though that there I feel there has to be some reason they went with it, but I guess it's one of those things we may never know.

That’s valid! Any response is appreciated. Also I’m not sure abt the Marge be not proud thing honestly, the grammar always reminded me of the way Yoda talks lol. I think subconsciously I assumed it was a Star Wars reference but I doubt that’s the case. Usually the titles are film names slightly changed if that helps.

Comic Book Guy would be very disappointed in you for thinking that’s a Star Wars reference.

Let Comic Book Guy know I worded that wrong, I associated Marge Be Not Proud with Star Wars cause of that thing I mentioned before, but I don’t think Yoda went “I be not proud of you Luke” or something lol

He most certainly didn’t.
