    Wow, I don't think I could've predicted this finale matchup. Two episodes that I admit are excellent, both of them, I think, being Bart-centric. "Word" handles emotion really well and "Feare" is hilarious with many movie parodies.

    My vote goes to my favorite episode of all-time "Cape Feare".

    Doesn't surprise me at all.
    Bart is and always will be the single greatest character on the Simpsons.
    Of the episodes centered around particular characters, I think he has the least amount of duds too.

    Anyway, my vote goes to Lisa's First Word.

    Yippie Ki Yay, folks. Unbelievably fantastic episodes. God, this will be hard.

    And, after much deliberation, I'm going to have to go with Lisa's First Word. There's so much heart in it, and so much significance. I'll always remember how it was Maggie who first lived up to her father's desire; to call him 'Daddy'.

    Both of these are in my top 10..

    But, I think Lisa's First word is better.

    Lisa's First Word. One of my favourite episodes ever, with an incredibly sweet ending. Cape Feare is a great episode as well, with a flurry of classic jokes.

    Both great episodes, but I'll have to go with Cape Feare, my all-time favorite.

    Okay, so I started this tournament in May of 2008, hoping to find the best episode of "The Simpsons" in the entire series. I originally made the thread, and was disappointed with the zero responses I was getting. So, I figured that I would have to try and find various fans of the show around this website in hopes to have a very active tournament. Finally, people started voting and from that point on, it seemed people were interested in participating.

    I think it is amazing that I have been running this tournament for more than a year, just by voting for random episodes from "The Simpsons". It wouldn't be possible without the almost daily participation from the users here, that made it seem they liked it as much as I did. Other than the fact of finding the best episode of the series, I hope everybody had fun voting and seeing how others vote on episodes. I know I enjoyed running the tournament even though it was a pretty long process, and I enjoyed the championship round especially. And now for my personal thank yous:

    Thank you ihatefamilyguy for being the first to get the game going and helping me find various users to participate.

    Thank you Mdinkle1 for being one of the firsts to participate, and you voted on pretty much every round.

    Thank you creative1985, you have been a good friend to me and you seemed very interested in playing.

    Thank you iminthepink for voting in most of the rounds, it was nice of you to join later in the tournament.

    Thank you My_Dog_Misty for playing along with us, and voting in a lot of the matchups, nice to have you along during the tournament.

    Thank you orchardpark for being very opinionated and a nice person to have along in the tournament. I have to think you are pretty please with the result, too.

    Thank you Underdog121488, I have always liked your enthusiasm for the show and you have been playing with us since the start of the thread. Thanks for participating, and I hope you enjoyed it.

    Thank you radrobd, you probably have the most knowledge on "The Simpsons". But you voted in most of the rounds, and it has been a pleasure becoming good friends with you.

    Thank you GrandCross21, you seem like a good dude. You voted in a lot of rounds, and it has been nice interacting with you.

    Thank you RalphWiggumFan, even though you joined along later in the tournament, I am glad you were able to participate.

    Thank you packerdriver80, I enjoyed having you around voting in the rounds.

    I'm sorry if I've missed anybody,, but I hope you all enjoyed the "Simpsons Episode Tournament".

    Wow. I hadn't realized how long we had been doing this.
    It's been a lot of fun WBadger42, and I think somebody needs to thank you for making such an excellent tournament. So thanks! I'm gonna miss this.

    Also, I don't think I could be happier with the outcome.
    Lisa's First Word. BEST...EPISODE...EVER!
    And this tournament? BEST...TOURNAMENT...EVER!

    Thanks WBadger42 for doing this. It was a lot of fun. Wow, I can't believe it's over. "Lisa's First Word" is a good ep, but I don't think I would have predicted it as the ultimate winner.
