Acknowledgments
An Introduction to The Simpsons: "As far as anyone knows, we're a nice, normal family"
The Culture We Live In: "Would it really be worth living in a world without television? I think the survivors would envy the dead"
Friendship and Community: "My mom won't let me be your friend anymore"
Love and Marriage: "Our marriage is like soft serve ice cream and trust is the hard chocolate shell that keeps it from melting onto our carpet"
America's Family: The Simpsons: "Everybody in the kitchen! We're having a family meeting"
Gender Roles and Expectations: "Let's buy makeup so the boys will like us"
Springfield: A Racial Melting Pot Often Lacking in Tolerance: "From this day forth, I am no longer an Indian living in America. I am an Indian American"
Religion and Other Things We Believe In: "To think, I turned to a cult for mindless happiness when I had beer all along"
Beware the Enviromare: "This planet needs every friend it can get"
The Political World of Springfield: "Ah, just one thing. Are you guys any good at covering up youthful and middle-aged indiscretions?"
The Wide Diversity of Sports in Springfield: "Mom, I never won before, and I may never win again"
Springfield's Educational System: Where Every Child Is Left Behind!: "I have had it with this school! The low test scores, class after class of ugly, ugly children"
Physical and Mental Health in Springfield: "All my life I have been an obese man trapped inside a fat man's body"
Tricks and Treats: "Well, I'll be a son of a witch"
