The Simpsons -- "The Food Wife" -- 11/13/11

"The Food Wife"
Spoiler:
Gordon Ramsay (MASTERCHEF, HELL'S KITCHEN), Anthony Bourdain ("No Reservations"), Mario Batali ("Molto Mario"), and Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!") Make Guest Voice Appearances

Marge takes Bart and Lisa on a weekend excursion, but when an unexpected restaurant detour awakens their taste buds, fellow foodies Amuse Bruce and Fois Garth (guest voices Heidecker and Wareheim) inspire them to start their own food blog, "The Three Mouthketeers." They score an exclusive reservation at Springfield's premiere modern restaurant, but Marge has an unsettling dream during which Anthony Bourdain, Gordon Ramsay, and Mario Batali (guest voicing as themselves) lead her to reconsider extending the invite to Homer. Later, Marge directs Homer to a different type of cooking lab where he gets into a bind with law enforcement authorities in the all-new "The Food Wife" episode of THE SIMPSONS airing Sunday, Nov. 13 (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (SI-2220) (TV-PG D, L, V)

Voice Cast: Dan Castellaneta as Homer Simpson; Julie Kavner as Marge Simpson; Nancy Cartwright as Bart Simpson and Nelson; Yeardley Smith as Lisa Simpson; Harry Shearer as Skinner; Pamela Hayden as Milhouse; Tress MacNeille as Dolph

Guest Voice Cast: Gordon Ramsay as himself; Anthony Bourdain as himself; Mario Batali as himself; Tim Heidecker as Foodie; Eric Wareheim as Foodie

Homer: "My kids do not eat sorbet. They eat sherbet and they pronounce it sherbert. And they wish it was ice cream."

Maybe my favorite of the season. Had me laughing, for sure.

I've had a hard time getting into the Simpsons this year but I finally watched Sunday's episode and I thought it was the best of the year, perhaps any from last year as well.

There were a lot of gags during the "E4" convention that I need to go back to and hit the pause button to catch.

That line had me rolling. I eat sorbet and everytime I give it to someone that has never had it they always look at me weird.

That was a hilarious episode.

Ramsey: "What the hell was that?"
