The Simpsons

Lisa on Ice - S6-E8

Question: Why did Marge keep Milhouse's teeth?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: She wanted to use them to discourage Lisa from playing hockey and probably felt ashamed/embarrassed for keeping them when Milhouse asked if she had them.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Question: Do "Bart to the future" and "Lisa's wedding" episodes share the same continuity? I only saw second one and I'd like to know if president Lisa is the same Lisa who was in love with Hugh, or Bart who has a band with Ralph the same Bart who used to demolish buildings etc? Or are they just independents predictions without connections? I'm not even asking about Future-Drama, because it'd be weird at this point, Lisa graduating in high school in 2013 and being at university in 2010.

Chosen answer: They are not supposed to be, but there is no way to tell for sure. The only thing that appears to be the same in each episode are the additions made to their house. But some of the other differences could be explained by the fact that one is around 12-15 years in the future, and the other is 30 years in the future.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Chosen answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Question: When Lisa goes up to turn on the oil pump for the first time, there is a sound between Skinner saying, "Here's our top student, Lisa Simpson", and Lisa actually getting to the pump. It sounds like someone straining. What is it?

Chosen answer: It's a student yelling, "Nerd!" at Lisa.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Question: At the town meeting, when the town residents threaten Mr Burns, why does Ned Flanders want to hear from Sideshow Mel? How does he even know who he is? Why does he care about his opinion?

Chosen answer: Why shouldn't he care about his opinion? As Mel says in another episode "My opinions are as valid as the next man's!" Maybe Flanders knew he was smarter then he looks and wanted to have a strong voice on his side.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Question: In the scene where Bart was about to get kicked by the Australian Prime Minister Bart jumps forward. After that he says "...and this is for the United States of America." He shows his butt with the words "Don't tread on me" and hums the American national anthem. Does this imply that America can get away with anything or was there a different message being implied?

Chosen answer: During the American Revolution one of the early flags used, known as the Gadsden Flag, was a coiled rattle snake on a field of yellow, with the words, "Don't Tread on Me", written below. This a good site for a more in depth story into the origins. http://www.gadsden.info/history.html

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Question: When Milhouse meets his Shelbyville double, he tearily says "So this is what it feels like when doves cry." Could someone explain this reference to me?

Chosen answer: It's a reference to a Prince song. See http://dag.wieers.com/personal/lyrics/When_Doves_Cry.php.
