  • When Moe's brewery suppliers cut him off, Homer suggests a drink he concocted through boredom one evening whilst watching a holiday slideshow. Moe markets the recipe as his own and makes money off Homers idea, causing Homer to get a touch of the green-eye

    Fine example of Simpsons history and a fantastic amount of Cheers spoofs. I really have no idea how they keep coming up with things to spoof, but here they even write their own Cheers-esque theme song for Moes Tavern. There is a also a fantastic portrayal of Homers descent into madness after his annoyance with Moe stealing his idea. In particular the scene where he hangs from the roof wearing his pyjamas and dressing gown cackling menacingly. All in all, a fantastic portrayal of the Simpsons at their best and with the same subtle truths they slip into every episode. Truly brilliant, they get better every series.
