Quote of the Day

Homer Goes to College12

“Marge, someone squeezed all the life out of these kids.  And unless movies and teevee have lied to me, it’s a crusty, bitter old dean.” – Homer Simpson
“Hi there, hello, I’m Dean Peterson, but you can call me Bobby.  I just want you to know, if you ever feel stressed out from studying or whatever, I’m always up for some hacky sack.  Or hey, if you just want to come by and jam, I used to be the bass player for the Pretenders.” – Dean Peterson
“Boy, I can’t wait to take some of the starch out of that stuffed shirt.” – Homer Simpson

Happy 20th Anniversary to “Homer Goes to College”!  Original airdate 14 October 1993.

    I don’t know why, but it’s the “Pretenders” specification that just elevates this joke. I’ve actually played the joke in my head using other band names, and they’re all either not hip enough, or so hip they overtake the rest of the joke.

      If I recall correctly, The Pretenders have undergone many personnel changes. I guess that’s what makes it work.

    I think TV and movies did lie to Homer, as they have to all of us. Maybe that’s the point of this particular scene.
