They showed this episode earlier this evening and it made me think of all the hype (a good thing on this one) on radio, tv, magazines and the paper! I was living up in Seattle at the time and one of the popular radio shows was offering all sorts of prizes for the person chosen who guessed right!

Wow, it's been so long. Anyone remember what year this episode aired? I remember being SO excited to see WHO it was. I never suspected Maggie!

I remember seeing contest ads from 1-800-Collect, I think it was, for this big event during Beavis and Butt-Head episodes. That's the only memory I have of it, other than the America's Most Wanted special they aired before the series premiere that showed Maggie was the shooter.

That is and will always be 2 classic episodes. I never guessed Maggie did it. I like jaspers response to Smithers when he said he shot him in his wooden leg.

You shot who in the what now?

Classic

I always wanted it to be Tito Puente, but me and my sister were fairly confident it was Magaggie. The first ep aired in May of '95, the 2nd in Sept of that year.

I always thought it was the death of Super Dude... :cry: ;) ("Won't... dignify... that... with a... response..." )

Didn't 7-11 or Stop 'N Go or some other Quickee-Mart like store have a contest about it?

I kind of new it would be either Maggie, Santa's Little Helper, or a real twist in the story...Marge!

I can't actually believe that people thought it was Homer, he was so obvious, where would the suprise have been?

Did anyone here actually belive it was Homer?

I never thought HOmer, I did think Marge though or maybe one of the "background" characters... I really enjoyed that episode though because EVERYONE in the town had a reason to shoot ol' Montgomery Burns. . . I just never thought about maggie for some reason??? :)

I never guessed Homer. Smithers crossed my mind but it could of been anyone. I never suspected Maggie.

There was a whole bunch of alternate endings showing others shooting Burns that they showed in that one episode. I can't remember the name of it, it was something like the "133rd Episode Spectacular!" or something like that. Troy McClure "hosted" it. They showed Apu, Jasper, Santa's Lil Helper and others pulling the trigger.

I remember when all the hype was around. My money was totally on Smithers. Boy was I surprised...

Embarrassing instances of being "off by 5:"
- "Fired? I just took the day off for the holiday! What? Today's the 9th of July? D'oh!"
- "No, no! You fool! You've misplaced a 5. Now you'll incur the fines and the penalties and the compounded interest, mmblaavy."
- "Fired? I just got to work, five minutes early even! What? Yesterday was the 'spring forward' time change? D'oh!"
- "An 'F'? But I was just off by five on each of the subtraction problems on the test!"
- "Free tickets to an advance screening of Episode III? Cool! What? It's at 3 pm? But I'm off by five from work; d'oh!"
- "Am I in charge of other campers? Why? I'm missing two?!? But I was only off by five!"
- "What was that? Sounded like the top of my RV just got ripped off! I sure hope that bridge was high enough... I guessed the RV covers 12' 7" of space."

Hee, hee! :p
