  • "Not The elephants!" As Sideshow Bob is stomped on.

    Could this be the best episode of the Simpsons? Certainly the rating is high and the quality of writing is superb. You can see this is the last episode to be written by the original team of writers - future ones aren't this good. Sideshow Bob is out of prison again. He goes after Bart, forcing the family to go on the witness protection program. Hilarity follows as Bob chases them into Terror Lake and onto the house boat. Favourite lines: "Oh no Dad's been drugged" cries Lisa "No he hasn't!" Replies Marge. "Surely there's no harm in lying in the street." Bob to Bart. A marching parade comes along "Not the elephants!"

    And the rake scene. Funniest Ever.
