Star Trek XI Reference on the Simpsons!

http://www.hulu.com/watch/133207/the...ing-first-base

Thanks, Hulu!

At the 18:50 mark, Bart's new love interest tries to revive him using CPR. It triggers a montage of famous movie kisses in Bart's head, including Gone With the Wind, From Here to Eternity, and an Alien nearly killing Ripley.

Oh yeah, and XI!

Re: Star Trek XI Reference on the Simpsons!

I recognized about 1/2 of those kissing scenes. Where does that put me on the cool-o-meter?

Any time your show or movie is referenced on The Simpsons it is a good thing, even if it is my least favorite part of the new movie!

Looks like they've also got the clip of that scene up at the ohnotheydidn't LJ.

Edit:

And now at TrekMovie.

Re: Star Trek XI Reference on the Simpsons!

Since we've got two threads about this, I'll merge them so we've got our SpockUhuraSimpsons Trek XI references all in one place. Stand by for a moment...

If it didn't before, it does now, thanks to the Simpsons

Woot! I can imagine all the people who saw the clip (but didn't see the movie) investigated it and are now S/U shippers

So, am I the first to notice that that's really a take-off on Cinema Paradiso? Which really should have included the Archie Bunker/Sammy Davis, Jr. kiss.

I'm impressed they got the rights to the music. That couldn't have been cheap! Maybe Enzo Morricone is a big Simpsons fan?

^ Is that where the montage idea and music come from? I've never seen Cinema Paradiso, but it certainly wouldn't be unlike the Simpsons for them to have done that.
