Holiday Throwaway: Favorite One-Offs

The story of how two brothers and five other men parlayed a small business loan into a thriving paper goods concern is a long and interesting one … and here it is. — Box factory manager, “Bart Gets Famous”

Happy Memorial Day! Per company policy, SHS is off today. Go outside!

Who are your favorites?

  1. The Glory of Being a Clown says:

    I love the pretzel guy, Frank Ormand, mainly because of the way he says the line “ugh, check for millipedes” as he’s opening the ingredients bag on the franchise instructional video. That he couldn’t be bothered to re-shoot that scene says a lot about his business.

    • Pepito! The Biggest Cat In The Whole Wide World! says:

      if you’re watching me, that means you’ve got pretzel fever — and not the kind that attacked my intestinal lining some years back. eh heh heh heh

    What episode is that second picture from? I can’t remember for the life of me.

    i am also a big fan of the pretzel guy, mostly for the way he laughs after he makes his “knot bread” joke. huh-ha-ha-ha huh-ha-ha…

    Is Mel communicating with a bulb horn in ‘Lisa the Greek’ in reference to something?

    No Coach Lugash? Chazz Busby would have been my favorite one-off until he showed up dancing on Burns’s grave then again when Homer played Christ this season.

  6. Pepito! The Biggest Cat In The Whole Wide World! says:

    I believe Rex was also in Bart of Darkness in the pool:
    “Lisa, please join my family for a weekend in the country. They’ll be hunting, charades, and ever so many delightful romantic misunderstandings?”

    So stop trying to fool us you deceitful cow

    It’s got to be Hank Scorpio…..

    “Scorpio! He’ll sting you with his dreams of power and wealth. Beware of Scorpio! His twisted twin obsessions are his plot to rule the world, and his employees’ health. He’ll welcome you into his lair, like the nobleman welcomes his guest. With free dental care and a stock plan that helps you invest! But beware of his generous pensions, plus three weeks paid vacation each year. And on Fridays the lunchroom serves hot dogs and burgers and beer! He loves German beer!”
    ―Hank Scorpio’s theme song

    Arr, that’s Handsome Pete. He dances for nickels.
