For Valentine’s Day, and another special reason you will hear about soon, your favorite Film Crickets compiled a list of the ten most romantic moments from the first ten seasons of the Simpsons.
We will be posting one or two a day until Valentine’s day!
Without further ado, here’s number 10: Homer and Marge’s tryst at the power plant after she decides not to see her seductive bowling instructor, Jacques, again.
What makes this so romantic isn’t just that Marge decides to stick with her husband, with all his faults, instead of allowing herself to be seduced by a more handsome and attentive man. Homer knows that something is wrong between them, but he doesn’t know exactly what. When Marge shows up unannounced at the power plant to see him, his relief is palpable. He knows that it’s going to be OK, she still loves him, and he doesn’t have to worry. Plus, an afternoon delight at your workplace? Who doesn’t dream about that?
I know what you’re thinking: “This moment was so romantic it made me want to cry. How could there be 9 more moments that are at least this romantic?” Well, keep checking in, my friend, and you will see.
