Jennifer Tilly is supposed to show up, too.
Marge and Homer's attempts to find Grampa after he disappears from Springfield Retirement Castle uncover a few secrets about him - for example, did he get married a second time?; Lisa gets a little too involved in online poker when she puts her college fund on the line
ETA: "I will not concede this election until I get Karl Rove's permission."
Freaking loved that couch gag. Wacky Races is one of my favorite cartoons. Wish it was longer, just about every character in the race was dressed as a character. (Homer was Peter Perfect, Marge as Penelope Pitstop, and no shock Frink was Prof. Pat Pending).
I can totally relate to the guilt of missing the day I was supposed to visit an elderly relative, and the assorted crap in Grampa's room. I think I actually felt emotion from the story of Abe's short marriage to Rita, and their meeting at the end.
Really liked Bart making that stupid face through the window, then Flanders doing the same thing.
So the show FINALLY tackles Online Poker. So now every Simpson has a gambling problem now? I do like how Lisa kinda acted like Homer with boxing money: instead of trading up with car washes, she upgraded college sweatshirts. I like that they let Sideshow Bob play online poker in prison, and the great irony of having HIM win all of Lisa's money. But I loved the twist of Bart using Bob's avatar the whole time. Again, I actually felt emotion!
Jennifer Tilly's cameo was actually pretty funny! "Time is money!" "Money is money!" We even had a posthumous cameo from Marvin Hamlish. That's the second time that's happened, Eartha Kitt appeared about a year after her death.
Man, I really liked this one much more than I thought I would! This was actually...good?
