Marge, don’t discourage the boy. Weaseling out of things is important to learn. It’s what separates us from the animals! ...’Cept the weasels.— Homer

I call "Little Big Mom" a "mixed-opinion" episode. Some people like it, others can't stand it.
I, for one, am one of those people who likes it. And I don't mean like, I mean I REALLY like it. I recorded it on video because my dad was late cooking dinner and I didn't want to miss it. I've seen it about 10 times now, but I don't get bored.
My favourite bit was when Homer couldn't stop thinking about Flanders' suit. The "Stupid Sexy Flanders" quote is one of those quotes that make Homer funny, something I don't think I've seen for a LONG time.
The whole Lisa-looking-after-house thing was good, though I wasn't so sure on the way Homer and Bart went through with it. It wasn't like them at all. I put it down to them seizing the moment.
The whole ghost thing reminds me of Cinderella. OK, so Lucy is no fairy godmother, but you get the picture.
However, the episode would have been much better if Homer and Bart had just cleaned up the house. Sure, Flanders' reaction was funny, but the Electric Needle was not only unneccessary, but also rather disturbing.
It wasn't, however, enough to spoil what I thought was a good episode. One that is...
My favourite Season 11 episode

My favourite Lisa Simpson episode
My 2nd most favourite episode OVERALL.
Sure, you can write me off, but I'm only human. Besides, SOMEONE'S got to like it.
p.s. I've always gotten all excited when someone starts whispering as well. Never found out why.
