Did You Know?


In this episode, Mr Burns' ATM password was stated to be the same as his age and is four digits long making him potentially thousands of years old (although it is possible the first and/or second digits are 0). However, in other episodes, his age has fluctuated:
  • In "Simpson and Delilah" his age was explicitly stated as 81
  • In "Who Shot Mr. Burns? (Part One)", "Homer the Smithers" and "A Hunka Hunka Burns in Love" it was stated to be 104
  • In the episode "Fraudcast News", Burns claims that he was born in 1881, making him 123 years old (when the episode aired in 2004)
  • In an issue of Simpsons Comics, Smithers states Mr. Burns is 118

Queen Elizabeth's luggage bears the initials "HRH", for "Her Royal Highness" (which Homer thinks stands for "Henrietta R. Hippo"). This is a mistake; the queen's husband and children are styled "His/Her Royal Highness", but the queen herself is "Her Majesty". See more »

My Personal Favourite Vacation episode,
26 January 2016 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

The Regina Monologues is a terrific Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and plenty of very funny scenes. It's a really enjoyable twenty minutes as we get to see the Simpsons vacation in England, hilarity ensues as it is filled with many funny references to the one of the most well known countries that majority of viewers should understand, as well as terrific cameos from the likes of Tony Blair, J.K. Rowling, as well as my favourite scene that features the great Ian McKellen. The only thing I felt this episode was missing was a bit more heart, it forgets this as it gets too distracted by its zany, fast pace, it could have focused more on Grampa's lost love, the reason they went to England in the first place, but sadly this is quickly forgotten and only wrapped up slightly at the end. It's probably one of the most exciting Simpsons, it's very fast paced and never really takes time to cool down, once Homer gets in trouble with the Queen the fun really starts and we're reminded just how risky and different this episode really is. I never tire of it, The Regina Monologues is without a doubt one of the highlights of the fifteenth season, a very enjoyable Simpsons.

The Simpsons decide to travel to England to help Grampa search for a woman he met during the war, but Homer soon gets himself in huge legal troubles.
