  • Pretty good clip show.

    This episode begins with a parody of Forrest Gump, with Homer sitting on a bench with a box of chocolates, telling Cheif Wiggum his life story. Later, the family picks Homer up for his roast. Homer is surprised the roast pokes fun at him, but he has fun looking back at great memories with the kids, Marge, his father, and all the adventures he's had. Kang and Kodos soon interrupt Homer's roast, and say is the epitome of the ugly man, or something like that. They are going to destroy the Earth, but they see Maggie has great memories with her father. The Simpsons give the aliens tickets to the People choice awards.

    This was a pretty good episode for a clip show, and I loved the song at the end.

    Overall Grade: 85%/B+
