The Simpsons: “God spoke to us for a reason.”


Today I finally got around to checking out the Simpsons: Season 9 set that I bought last week, and lo and behold, I found that the animatic preview of The Simpsons Movie includes a bit of God-talk. To wit, Homer and Marge are standing in front of a giant silo bearing the label “PIG CRAP”, and Marge says to Homer:

God spoke to us for a reason. I’m not quite sure what that reason is, but I’m asking you: Please, dispose of that waste properly.

I haven’t a clue what any of that is supposed to mean, and for all I know, this scene might not be in the film at all (i.e., perhaps the filmmakers have tossed this out there to throw Simpsons fans off the scent of the real plot). Still, colour me intrigued.

And I’m not just saying that because my review of Mark Pinsky’s The Gospel According to The Simpsons has been quoted in the book’s opening pages ever since its second printing.

FWIW, you can watch the animatic here, courtesy of YouTube:
