1. El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer
2. You Only Move Twice
3. Trash of the Titans

Favourite season? Toss up between 3, 6 and 8 for me. 6 and 8 were when the series was just at it's absolute peak in my opinion, but I love most of the episodes in 3.

My fave episode is where they go to New York. Unfortunately since it has the old World Trade towers, I suspect it doesn't get shown very often
Yeah, I think it didn't see much action because of some line in the episode where a guy says 'they stick all the jerks in tower one' or something to that effect.

Just recently got the entire series.
Anything from 3-9 would be worthy winners, that was the absolute peak.
Picking an episode would be almost impossible.

Lisa on Ice as the best episode for mine. Couldn't pick a best season.




Yes, yes I would.

You think your Simpsons quoting ability is special? I got a puppy last year and didn't know what to name it, then after a few days I noticed it spent half its life on its hind legs trying to jump on people. So I started calling it Rory, after Rory Calhoun. I challenge anybody to beat that Simpsons reference.
My nickname for Leigh Montagna is Rory Calhoun because everyone else calls him Little Monty ;)

Season 8 is the best for my money.

You Only Move Twice - Best. Episode. Ever. Contains perhaps my all time favortite scene with the destruction of the bridge and the Indian Minister wanting to take a chance that it fell down on it's own hahahahaha
A Milhouse Divided - You have all sung "Can I borrow a feeling?" and you are lying if you say you haven't.
The Twisted World of Marge Simpson - My second favorite quote: "You have 24 hours to get our money and to show you we're not kidding... you now have 12 hours. See you at 6AM....."
Mountain of Madness - Who doesn't like a good sit?
Brother from Another Series - Best 'meta' reference in Simpson history?

Not to mentions classics like Rex Banner, Frank Grimes, Kang and Kodos running for president, Wiggum PI vs Big Daddy....

YOMT and TWWoMS are absolutely up there

As is Homer vs the Eighteenth amendment

"I'll get you Beer Baron"

"No you won't"

"Yes i will"

"D'oh"

Can't forget Lisa on Ice either

Season 5 is the best, and Cape Feare in S5 is the best episode of the series. Season 5 also has:

Homer's Barbershop Quartet - probably my favourite flashback episode along with I Married Marge
Marge on the Lam - Lionel Hutz in top form, even by his standards
The Last Temptation of Homer - Think unsexy thoughts
$pringfield - Love Homer's "Floreda" costume for Lisa's geography parade and the boogeyman scene
Homer and Apu - Who Needs the Kwik E Mart?
Deep Space Homer - One of the show's most iconic episodes with the chips and the inanimate carbon rod
Homer Loves Flanders - Love that creepy scene where he walks back into the bushes
Burns' Heir - hilarious, and gave us the "The lesson is never try" quote

Season 6 comes really close, and I also really like Season 7. Seasons 4 and 8 are superb but a little bit overrated (don't like people who REFUSE to consider any episode after Season 8) while Seasons 3 and 9 are pretty underrated. Seasons 1 and 2 are also classic, but the show was still finding its footing in those episodes so they're sometimes a little boring. Season 10 is also really good but sees the end of the "classic era" in my opinion. Seasons 11 and 12 are enjoyable overall, while 13-16 are a step down, although still pretty decent. I haven't seen much of the show past 17 though.

Lisa on Ice for me...

Hack The Bone!!! HACK THE BONE!!!

Now pie, I'm gonna go like this, and if you get in the way it's your own fault...

Way to knock out my teeth. That's it Millhouse, keep up the chatter...

Competitive Violence! That's why you're here!!!

Now if the Bible has taught us anything, which it hasn't, it's that women should stick to women's sports, such as hot-oil wrestling, and foxy boxing, and such and such...

Having watched all the episodes from season 1-9 recently, I would say that 4-5-6 was the peak. Starting falling away season 8-9. Might be a tad harsh but when it jumped the shark for me for me was season 7 'Homer the Smithers' or maybe season 8 'Lisa's date with destiny'.

As for my favorite season it would have to be season 4. Can't go past Monorail, Duff Gardens, Dental plan, Mr Plow and 'Homer the Heretic', easily my favorite episode of all time.

Love the bit in "you only move twice" when Homer asks Scorpio if he has any sugar. He replies "yea" and pulls packs of sugar out of his pocket and follows it up with "do you want cream?"

Well, sir, there's nothing on earth
Like a genuine, bona fide
Electrified, six-car monorail
What'd I say?
Monorail
What's it called?
Monorail
That's right! Monorail
Monorail
Monorail
Monorail
I hear those things are awfully loud
It glides as softly as a cloud
Is there a chance the track could bend?
Not on your life, my Hindu friend
What about us brain-dead slobs?
You'll be given cushy jobs
Were you sent here by the Devil?
No, good sir, I'm on the level
The ring came off my pudding can
Take my pen knife, my good man
I swear it's Springfield's only choice
Throw up your hands and raise your voice
Monorail!
What's it called?
Monorail!
Once again
Monorail!
But Main Street's still all cracked and broken
Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken
Monorail!
Monorail!
Monorail!
Monorail!
Mono, d'oh!
