  • Definitely another great installment.

    One thing I've always loved about the Simpsons is their modest income compared to their luxurious actions and home. We finally get to see someone realize just how good Homer has it compared to just how incompetent he is.

    Enter Frank Grimes (AKA 'Grimey'), one of my all-time favorite one episode characters. He's the polar opposite of Homer. He lives in an apartment, has no wife, kids, and has a college degree. His annoyance with Homer leads to one of the best and worst moments in the Simpsons history.

    Frank Grimes could have been even more of a great character, but I guess the 'less is more' thing is perfect here (greased up deaf guy...hello?). It's still one of the best to this day.
