  • homer giving up beer...what willpower he has

    both of the storylines in this episode are great, lisa comparing bart to a hamster, the hamster being more smart, and homer's problems in giving up beer. my favourite scene in this episode is where beer bottles float down to homer and homer goes crazy knowing that he can't drink them. bart's science project "can hamsters fly aeroplanes?" was a great twist aswell, getting bart the first prize. barney's classic line of "if you didn't close i'd never leave" referring to moes is a classic barney line that i have heard many people quote. the ending was a bit too sweet for my liking and i think homer probably should have brought a beer on the bike ride but a serious ending is important for a comedy on occasion.
