A member from a while back named "theKid" had once posted the dialogue along with screen caps of the episode, and it looked really funny.  I haven't been able to find any pictures on the 'net since, and I've searched through some "Simpsons" sites for them.  If anyone can find any, please post them here.

They've spoofed Clint a few times before. What was the name of that TV detective they had once? MaGarnigal or something like that. That was a Dirty Harry type of spoof.

A few months back I was looking for a "Simpsons" episode and I noticed the one that mentioned "Paint Your Wagon".

I tried to find an image with them (Simpsons) watching the movie but I wasn't successful.

The episode in question is episode eleven (production code 5F24) from season nine.

Quote
"All Singing, All Dancing"
Anticipating a bloody Clint Eastwood-Lee Marvin shoot-'em-up, Bart and Homer are horrified to discover that their video rental, Paint Your Wagon, is actually a musical. Several song and dance moments from seasons past are recalled. Guest starring George Harrison.

(source)

I remember parts of that episode but not the part about "Paint Your Wagon"   :-[

I just found a site with lots of info about the episode (no pics though :-\)

Click here: "All Singing, All Dancing" Episode

Some of the dialogue

Quote
Bart and Homer walk in the door, carrying a bag.

Marge: We got the popcorn! Did you get "Waiting to Exhale"?

Homer: They put us on the "Waiting to Exhale" waiting list, but they said "don't hold your breath".

-- "All Singing, All Dancing"

Lisa asks if they got "Emma". When Homer says no, Marge enquires what they did get.

Homer: Something very close, exactly along those lines. A Clint Eastwood, Lee Marvin shoot-em-up western!

Marge & Lisa: Hmmmm...

Bart: So prepare yourself for the bloody mayhem and unholy carnage of Joshua Logan's "Paint Your Wagon"!

Homer: With blood, I bet!

-- Homer and Bart's replacement for "Emma," "All Singing, All Dancing"

Bart puts the video in the VCR. It starts with a man (man 1) on a horse and wagon, riding into a typical Western movie-style deserted village. A man dressed in a black suit (Clint Eastwood) is waiting for him.

Man 2: Hey! That's a pretty sorry lookin' wagon you got there, mister.

Clint Eastwood: I reckon it could use a coat of paint.

Man 2: Well, what are we waitin' for!

-- Intense! "All Singing, All Dancing"

They proceed to sing about painting their wagon, which is repeated by a group of townsfolk, much to the horror of Homer and Bart.

Homer: Agh! They're singing! They're singing, Marge! Why aren't they killing each other?

Bart:  Yeah, their guns are right there.

Homer: Wait, wait, wait: here comes Lee Marvin. Thank God. He's always drunk and violent.

-- "All Singing, All Dancing"

Another man comes out, played by Lee Marvin.

Lee Marvin: What the <hell> is going on in my town?

Man 1: We're just paintin' this wagon. Ya gotta problem with that?

Lee Marvin: As a matter of fact I do. You missed a spot.

Man 1: Well, grab a brush and join in!

-- "All Singing, All Dancing"

Marvin breaks into song on his own, saying he'll use oil based paint, because the wood is pine (Ponderosa pine, sing the women).

Marge: Who knew that Lee Marvin could do such marvellous splits?

Lisa:  He's dreamy.

Homer: [ejects tape] Ooh, why did they have to ruin a perfectly serviceable wagon story with all that fruity singing?

-- "All Singing, All Dancing"

Although Marge thought it was "toe-tappin' fun", Homer thinks that singing is the "lowest form of communication".

Marge: Homer, you sing all the time.

Homer: No I don't, I hate to rhyme.

Lisa:  You like musicals, (breaking into song) don't you dad?

Homer: [singing] No, I don't, I think they're bad, They're fake and phony and totally wrong

Bart:  [singing] Wake up dad, you're singing a song.

 :)

You're welcome Matt!  :)

And FINALLY I found a site with frames from the episode.

Click HERE since they ask not to use the frames without permission.

I know this isn't a trivia game, but Xichado...



You get the peanuts for not only finding the dialogue, but those great screen caps too!  Thanks!  :D

That's cool! ;D

I haven't watched The Simpsons in several years now, so I never knew about this episode. Sounds like it'd be very funny.

Matt,

Hmm, peanuts



Thanks.  ;D

There is a d'oh on the dialogue I found and posted above

I took a closer look at those frames and Clint isn't dressed in black. In fact the character dressed in black looks like Lee Van Cleef and Clint seems to be wearing the poncho... on Paint Your Wagon?  ???

Check these frames: Frame 4 - Frame 5 - Frame 6

Misty, did the cartoon's voice sounded like the real Clint?

Yeah, when I saw the guy in black, I thought of Lee Van Cleef too.

But I guess you can't expect them to get everything right! Afterall, when you read the description of the movie, everybody knows that's not how the movie really goes. :D :P

I scanned forward to see if a west coast CBC channel was airing it, and they did at 8pm. So I watched it again, well, just the opening actually.

The voice over for Clint was pretty good. It was a hilarious moment though.

The voice for Clint wasnt bad, but I felt it could have been a little better.It would have been great if Clint himself had done it ;D
