Did You Know?


The entire cast of Cheers (1982) reunites in "Fear of Flying" to reprise their roles, except for Kelsey Grammer, who does not voice his "Cheers" character, due to the time constraints. Grammer is a recurring guest voice on "The Simpsons" as Sideshow Bob. See more »


When Moe throws the 45 record, "It's Raining Men", out the window, it hits Smithers in the head as he's driving by. Afterward, Smithers drives past King Toot's Music and then Moe's Tavern. He would have long passed both places after the incident. See more »


Carla Tortelli LeBec: Sammy, you're too old to go on a date with two twins the same night. You're supposed to marry Diane without Rebecca knowin'!
Sam 'Mayday' Malone: All right, Carla, I'll make you a bet. If this affects my major league comeback, I'll sell the bar.

Pretty funny episode.
19 November 2007 | by (Plainfield, IL) – See all my reviews

Season six was the first season of The Simpsons that had a very disjointed feel about it. Some of the episodes felt like Season Five episodes, and some felt like much later ones. This falls into the former category. Fear of Flying has the same structured randomness to it that made seasons four and five so wonderful. Marge actually gets some funny lines here, and a character attribute that was hinted at earlier is further developed: despite being the voice of reason, she doesn't always have it all together. Homer's search to find a new bar leads to a very funny Cheers parody. The highlight of this episode is probably Anne Bancroft, who deserves to go down in history as one of the funniest guest stars ever. Her soothing yet sarcastic voice is perfect for psychiatrist Dr. White, who isn't nearly as patient and compassionate as we might expect. Overall a strong episode.
