The Simpsons: Homer and his first time in New York City

The Simpsons is an American adult animated sitcom worldwide loved.

Created by Matt Groening more than 20 years ago, Homer’s family has become an institution, so, -of course- sooner or later The Simpsons had to meet another institution: New York.

They decided to dedicate an entire episode to Her: it’s “New York vs. Homer”, Season 9 Episode 1.

Homer lends his car to his drunk friend Barney Gumble, who – the day after – can’t remember where he left it. Then Homer receives a letter from the city of new York: they found his car at the World Trade Center. Yes, the Simpsons go to New York, but it won’t be the first time for Homer.

Watch the video below where Homer describes his first experience with NYC.

Lisa: Dad, you got a letter from the city of New York!

Homer: Pfft. Throw it away. Nothing good has ever came out of New York City.

Lisa: Dear motorist, your vehicle is illegally parked in the burrow of Manhattan.

Homer: My vehicle!

Lisa: If you do not remedy this malparkage within 72 hours, your car will be thrown into the East River at your expense.

Homer: New York is a hellhole. And you know how I feel about hellholes!

Lisa: Dad, you can’t judge a place you’ve never been to.

Bart: Yeah, that’s what people do in Russia.

Homer: It’s about time I told you about a chapter of my life that I had hoped would be closed forever. I was on my way to the Harrisburg coat outlet to buy an irregular coat. But it required a stop over in New York City.
