I Choo-Choo-Choose YouPublished by Toronto Mike on February 14, 2006 @ 07:57 in Family, The Simpsons
Last Valentine's Day, I spouted off about how contrived I think this artificial Hallmark holiday is. This year, I'm going to celebrate one exceptional thing that has come from this date on the calendar: I Love Lisa.
Originally airing on February 11, 1993, The Simpsons episode "I Love Lisa" is a true gem. There are classic lines from Ralph, his very public humiliation at the Krusty the Clown anniversary special, his exceptional performance as George Washington in his school's Presidents Day show and Groundskeeper Willie's famous proclamation, "I didn't cry when me own father was hung for stealing a pig, but I'll cry now."
To my Valentines, and you know who you are, I Choo-Choo-Choose You.
