Here’s a little gem from THE SIMPSONS.
The following exchange took place in the NINTH SEASON (1997-1998) episode “The Last Temptation of Krust”(A Krusty-centric episode, natch!), as Marge is buying new shoes for the kids.
LISA: “Mom, these [shoes] are at least two sizes too big!”
MARGE: “Perfect! You’ll grow into them!”
MARGE: Oh, you’re both WAY OVERDUE for a spurt!”
An obvious laugh-out-loud (for me anyway) reference to their remaining unchanged since 1989!
Imagine how well that Season 9 joke would work today in Season 21!
And HERE’s a related gag that has the same effect!
