What was your favorite episode of The Simpsons that really left you with a good feeling inside? I chose And Maggie makes three. So touching. I even teared up a little. What about you?

Umm... this is a squirrel. It's all smashed cuz the crazy neighbor man ran it over. He said it was an accident, but he's still pretty crazy. I think he moved away, but he keeps leaving weird drawings and stuff like this in my room. My dad thinks I'm doing it, and starts yelling at me to get a job.

Loved Mother Simpson. There was good humor and the ending with Homer sitting under a starry sky was very touching.

I also liked And Maggie Makes Three with Homer arranging the photos in his office to spell, 'Do it for her'. A really sweet Simpsons moment.

Where the hell is Lisa's Substitute!? The station scene is probably the only time i've ever cried watching The Simpsons (well actually I also cried in Bart's dog gets an F during the scene where Bart is saying goodbye to Santas Little Helper).   cry

I so agree with M Jackson on Lisa's Substitute. It was the most unique of the romantic episodes.

Oh, definitely "The Way We Was" but "And Maggie Makes Three" comes in a very close second.

I don't like the emotional episodes. To me, everything has a punchline.

Not sure why Maggie Makes Three is even there.  I love it, but the "emotion" is entirely contained with about 20 seconds.  Its a very sweet moment, but the rest of the episode is hardly touching.  Lost our Lisa is about the same except its not really that touching.

Lisa's Substitute is my favorite.  In fact, I'm incredibly suprised its not on the list because its such an official "favorite" when it comes to discussion of more serious Simpsons episodes (Marge Be Not Proud is another one that would normally be there, and Lisa's Wedding).  Lisa' Sub is also my absolute fave episode of the whole series.

Like some of you have said Lisa's Substitute is pretty emotional. But i also find 'Round Springfield emotional. Marge not Proud is another one. Whenever i watch that episode, i get a weird feeling inside (i know that sounds weird)

The moment in "And Maggie Makes three" with the photo collage spelling "Do It For Her" is what convinced me that TV cartoons could be just as moving as anything live-action.

Don't all these "Best Simpsons" threads belong somewhere else... namely a Simpsons message board.

I was just making a one-off poll until everyone else (OK, one person) jumped on the bandwagon  tongue. Seriously though, this thread is pretty unnecessary, or maybe I could include the result of this one in my final poll.

I am glad you said that Vamsi, I always thought that scene would make a lovely poster, t-shirt, wallpaper...very sweet and sentimental

'Round Springfield'. I actually forgot about that one, but now I've been reminded, I agree, that was pretty emotional.

I'm afraid I know the names to hardly any Simpsons eps, but the one episode that I find really touching, is the ep where they discuss why there are no baby pictures of Maggie around. And they tell the story of how Homer quit his job at the power plant and went to work at the bowling alley. Then because Marge was expecting Maggie, Homer had to go back to work at the power plant and Mr Burns put a plaque on his wall that said 'Dont forget, you're here forever' But Homer had arranged all his pictures of Maggie on the plaque so it spelled out 'Do it for her'. I thought that was a wonderful episode and very touching too  smile

Although I've already said I would vote for Lisa's Substitute if it was actually on the list, I just remembered that the end of Lisa's wedding was very touching too. I guess i'll just vote for tha... Oh wait it's not on the list. Go figure.
I think the scene where Lisa and Homer walk off into the distance holding hands and talking about their day is really nice. The music adds to the effect. Great stuff.
