The Jethro Tull ending with Thick as a Brick was great!

Toilet! Toilet! Toilet!

Funniest bit was Lisa dreaming about numbers. "27!"

what was the music that was playing in the school yard? It seemed very familiar.

I agree.

For some reason, Azaria's reading of "27" really made me laugh - I rewound it like 3 times.

It wrapped up too quickly (as seems to be the case with this show all the time), but was still pretty good.

I didn't really like the ending, but I enjoyed the premise. How do numbers make you feel?

Great episode last night. Surely it was inspired by what happened at Harvard last year where the president was 'forced' to resign by basically saying the same thing.

I thought this was one of the best Lisa-centric episodes in many years. Better than that, it felt fresh and not just a rehash of something they've done before like most recent episodes. I liked the way the boy's playground already looked like a desolate crimezone (complete with a downed helicopter) after one day.

Homer sleeping on the couch, then the doghouse had me

I liked Ralph's line about getting hit by boy-Lisa and girl-Lisa

Why didn't Lisa just take off the wig and glasses before getting beat up by Nelson?

The moment it ended my son said, "That's it?!" A sign of a good episode.

Yeah, "The Circle of Knife" was pretty damn funny. They always do good musical episodes.

We've gotten back into The Simpsons this season after years of irregular watching. I was always hearing bad things about it, but so far the episodes have been pretty good, with plenty of laughs.
