Thanks for the heads up. I have the Simpsons set to record on my DVR but I often just delete them since I can't possibly watch all I record. In this episode Marge takes up carpentry but no one will hire a woman so she has Homer take credit for all her work. Eventually it gets to her and she refuses to continue just as they get the job of fixing the town coaster, the Zoominator. Homer tries to hire a crew to help him fix it but he screws that up and so he does it himself. When he has the ceremony to reopen the ride, he welcomes "ladies and gentlemen, honored guests, and out of town rollercoaster weirdos". They then show the weirdos who all raise their hands together and yell like they are riding a coaster. There are three coaster shirts in the crowd: Newton's Revenge, Dilbert's Flying Cubical, and Vomit Mountain. When Homer drops the veil covering the entire dilapidated coaster (yes there is a veil over the whole thing), he hits it with the cork from a champagne bottle and it starts to come apart some. One coaster weirdo in a tuxedo t-shirt points up and says, "I am not getting married on that." His bride to be in a wedding veil and pants says, "You won't get married on Colossos, you won't get married on the Zoominator, you won't get married on the Pharaoh's Curse? Just say it. It's me!" and she throws down her wedding veil and runs off crying and the groom runs after her. Homer stubbornly decides to ride and Marge runs all over the track fixing bad spots before Homer gets to them. Aside from being in bad shape, the ride looks really cool. After Homer safely finishes his ride the whole thing falls down. The episode is called "Please Homer Don't Hammer 'Em".
I have the whole episode and will send a YouSendIt link to anyone who is interested. Just shoot me a private message with your e-mail address. If I posted it to YouTube or Google Video it'd just get taken down.
As soon as it's up on the bit-torrents, I'll snag a copy of it & You-Tube it, unless someone beats me to it...
It won't always get taken down, but it was a hilarious bit.
The shot of the coaster weirdos from out of town had me rolling, which was rare in a modern Simpsons episode... and I knew they couldn't just end the episode without someone riding it. Glad it was Homer... although very unrealistic how it was portrayed (I coulda sworn there were TWO lifts... the first hill and then the 2nd hill where he finally reveals the truth)...
...but hey, it's entertainment. Better coaster than the Enron Stock coaster they had a few years back!
the best was that when Homer called out the traveling coaster nerds, the camera zoomed to them, and they all put their hands in the air and screamed like they were going down a hill!
Hilarious. Great episode. PS-did anyone see the Justice commercial with the woman dying on a roller coaster? Does anyone know what roller coaster it is? it looked like a pinfari track to me, but I could be, and probably am, wrong
My boss asked me to come to his office earlier today and asked if I had seen last nights episode of "The Simpsons". When I told him I had, he said "Yeah, I thought of you when Homer started talking about those roller coaster weirdos." Nice to know my boss thinks so highly of me! ;)
You can go HERE to my profile & just click on the newest video (Homer Simpsons Tries to Re-build Zoominator!). It didn't give me the direct link yet 'cause the video is still "pending", and I gotta step out for a couple hours. It should be there by the time you click on it (if not, give it a few more minutes)... the entire clip is roughly 5 minutes long, since I took out all the other usless junk out of it.
As soon as I get the direct link, I'll edit this post... but at least it's not on a "competiting website".
