The Simpsons Challenge

Season 4

Episode 12 – Marge vs. the Monorail

Couch Gag – This time we have the whole town join them on the sofa.

Plot SynopsisAfter receiving a considerable donation of money, the people of Springfield decide what to spend it on. Enter Lyle Langley, a jocular salesman who gets Springfield hooked on a monorail system. After the monorail is up and running, and with Homer as the conductor, it’s time for the maiden voyage. Little do the people know they have just boarded a one-way train to Hell.

What is going on reallyWe start with my favourite opening sequence as Homer becomes Fred Flinstone singing his own song before crashing into a chestnut tree.

We see how Mr Burns gets fined for dumping toxic waste with the town getting $3 million to spend leading to a town meeting to decide where Lyle Lanley enters the picture to give a song and dance about building a monorail.

Homer gets hooked on the idea of becoming a conductor for the monorail and he pass the test becoming a conductor. Marge on the other hand decides to investigate Lyle and his past attempts of selling the monorail as it turns out he is a giant con-artist going town to town ruining them.

Final ThoughtsThis is of the most famous episodes of the series, it has the song and dance number which is one of the best in the show, it also shows how a town can be tricked by a con-artist instead of being sensible with the money.

Rating 5/5
