  • Great

    Easily the best of the future episodes (others being Bart to the Future and Future-Drama), this is a great episode. Lisa sees the man she loves in the future, Hugh Parkfield. However, her eyes see him for what he truly is; he does not like her family at all. Lisa simply can't be with someone who does not appreciate her family (and this makes her appreciate them even more), so they break-up.

    A good episode, has some funny gags and a somewhat saddish ending, I thought. A good offering ,my overall grade for this would be an A+, very easilymoreless

  • Great future episode

    At the Renaissance Faire, Lisa wanders into the fortune teller's booth and has her entire future laid bare. She sees herself in the year 2010, attending Harvard and falling in love with a British student named Hugh Parkfield. Hugh asks Lisa to marry him, and as their wedding approaches Lisa worries that her family--in particular, her father and brother--will embarrass her in front of her new husband and his upper-crust parents. After a series of embarrassing interludes, Lisa comes to understand that, even though they may not be classy, polite, or sanitary, Homer, Bart, Marge and a now teenage Maggie are her family and she loves them. Guest Star: Mandy Patinkin as Hugh Parkfield.moreless
  • A magical episode.

    It is one of my favourites.. If I had to pick a show ending episode I would pick this one.. It really is a great episode- I knew I will like it from the moment it came to the future.. It shows how everything changed- but thats only a background for the real story- Lisas wedding,which has a great ending- also there are many storys- what happened to who- like with Mr. Burns and his seventeen stabs in his back- or grown up Maggie. I give this episode 9.8 - maybe it wasn't as funny as some other ones- but it sure was great.moreless

  • QUOTES (17)

    • Bart: There's more to me than just demolition. I also crush cars into cubes. And in my spare time, I promote local tough man contests. Basically I'm getting out all my aggression till I go to law school.

    • Lunch Lady Doris: Yon meat, 'tis sweet as summer's wafting breeze.
      Homer: Can I have some?
      Lunch Lady Doris: Mine ears are open only to the please of those who speak ye old English.
      (Homer kneels on one knee)
      Homer: Sweet maiden of the spit, grant now my boon, that I might sup on suckling pig this noon.
      Lunch Lady Doris: Whatever.

    • Lisa: I'm sorry I left you alone with Homer and Bart.
      Hugh: No, no, honey I had a fine time.
      Lisa: How did you get that gash on your forehead?
      Hugh: Oh, that was when we hid in the dumpster, after the fire alarm went off in the pornographic magazine warehouse.

    • Marge: Homer, don't take this personally, but I've obtained a court order to prevent you from planning this wedding.
      Homer: (reads documents) Well, these seem to be in order. I'll be out back in the hammock.

    • Lisa: Guess what? Hugh and I are getting married!
      Marge: All right! Lisa, that's wonderful. If only your father were still with us (short pause) but he left for work a few minutes ago.

    • Fortune Teller: Now we'll see what the future holds.
      Lisa: (gulps) The "Death" card?
      Fortune Teller: No, that's good: it means transition, change.
      Lisa: Oh.
      (she turns over another card)
      Lisa: Oh, that's cute.
      Fortune Teller: (gasps) "The Happy Squirel"!
      Lisa: That's bad?
      Fortune Teller: Possibly. The cards are vague and mysterious.

    • Fortune Teller: I've been waiting for you, Lisa.
      Lisa: How did you know my name?
      Fortune Teller: Your nametag... Would you like to know your future?
      Lisa: Heh, sorry, I don't believe in fortune telling. I should go.
      Fortune Teller: What's your hurry? Bart and Maggie and Marge are at the joust, and Homer is heckling the puppet show.
      Lisa: Wow, you can see into the... present

    • Homer: Oh, I've eaten eight different meats. I am a true renaissance man!
      Lisa: I'll go to the first aid tent and tell them to plug in ye olde stomach pump.

    • Hugh: Stop everything! The wedding has been called off.
      Nelson Sr.: Ha-ha!
      Nelson Jr.: Ha-ha!
      (Krusty Groans)
      Reverend Lovejoy: This is very sad news. And it would never have happened if the wedding had been inside the church with God instead of out here in the cheap showiness of nature.
      Lunch Lady Doris: Who wants cake?

    • Librarian: (watching Lisa & Hugh) Hmph. First they hate each other, now all of a sudden they love each other. Oh, it doesn't make any sense to me.
      Man: Of course not, you're a robot.
      (Librarian cries & her head melts)

    • Hugh: Well, here goes nothing. Mum, Dad… meet Homer Simpson.
      Homer: You know what I like about you English? Octopussy. I must have seen that movie… twice!
      Hugh: That's not bad.

    • Moe: Oh, a British boy. You know we saved your ass in World War II.
      Hugh: Yeah, well we saved your ass in World War III.
      Moe: That's true.

    • (in Hugh's parent's home)
      Lisa: I love that portrait. Judging from the clothes I'd say about 17th century?
      Hugh's mother: Actually Lisa it's just Uncle Eldrid
      (Uncle Eldrid sits in a corner in period clothing fishing in a goldfish bowl)
      Eldrid: I get me brain medicines from the National Health.

    • Marge: (urgent whisper) Bart! Homer! Maggie! Company eating rules!

    • Lisa: I thought you said you'd tell me about my true love.
      Fortune Teller: Oh, you'll have a true love. But I specialize in foretelling the relationships where you get jerked around! (laughs evilly)

    • Bart: I met a really nice exotic dancer the other night at Hugh's bachelor party.
      Lisa: Hugh didn't have a bachelor party.
      Bart: We had one in his honor.
      (Lisa gives a disbelieving stare)
      Bart: I had one in his honor.
      (Lisa still doesn't believe)
      Bart: I went to a strip club.

    • Marge: You know, FOX turned into a hardcore sex channel so gradually that I didn't even notice. Yeesh!

  • NOTES (3)

    • This episode won a Primetime Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding Animated Program (for programming one hour or less)".

    • The end credit music for this episode is a medieval, fairy-tale-sounding version of the theme. Even the Gracie Films logo theme is done in Renaissance style.

    • Blackboard Joke: I will not strut around like I own the place.
      Couch Gag: The family scrambles to sit on the couch which bounces them up into the ceiling, their torsos and legs dangle above the couch.


    • The Phantom of the Opera
      Miss Hoover indicates that Martin died; but instead he is playing the piano from the depths of the school basement in an allusion to The Phantom of the Opera.

    • Love Story
      Part of this episode copies a scene from the 1970 film Love Story when Ryan O'Neal and Ali McGraw meet in a library and argue over a book. Lisa and Hugh do exactly this, before getting married.
