  • Springfield is cut into two cities.

    After Springfield's telephone area code splits in two, Homer spearheads a movement to divide the town itself in half along the new area code line. Guest starring The Who as themselves. This really was just a well-done episode that I really loved. The whole idea was funny, and the phone company jokes just added to the hilarity. It may not be the best of the season, but I really enjoyed this episode. Especially the whole idea of Homer being mayor. You have to love the badger at the beginning of the episode. This is absolutely a must see and under appreciated episode.
