  • To help the economy Springfield legalizes gambling. Homer gets a job at the casino, Marge becomes an addict, and Mr. Burns becomes oddly similar to Howard Hughes.

    This is truly one of the best episodes of the Simpsons. It has so much replay value and the jokes really do not get old. I also love the deleted scene where James Bond loses because Homer deals him a joker and then the card with the rules for poker. It really is one of those great episodes where there is just great joke after great joke after great joke. I'll never forget the boogey man scare at the Simpson house or Homer's line "I call him Gamblor." Another great moment I'll never forget from this episode is when Homer talks gibberish to Marge and she tells him to slow down and so he just speaks gibberish slower!
