We all miss Edna Krabappel, but not as much as her husband.
The Simpsons already paid tribute to the actress who voiced the character, the late Marcia Wallace, back in November, but it was done with one of the show's iconic chalkboard gags. This post-episode clip is a little more involved, and a lot more touching.

It was one of The Simpsons's opening-act throwaway story lines, but now it's proved unintentionally prophetic.
In the comedy classic's 17th season premiere, "Bonfire of the Manatees," patriarch Homer Simpson loses his savings in a bad bet on a football match, which just so happens to concern the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks, the two teams matched up in Sunday's Super Bowl.
In the 2005 episode, the Broncos ended up winning 19-14, to the consternation of Homer, who was forced to use the family home as a set for a pornographic film to pay off his gambling debt. (And that's only act I. Eventually manatees did get involved.)

The Simpsons began its 25th season in September, and Dec. 17, 2014, will be the show's 25th anniversary. Seeing as we're between those two milestones, we'll be taking any opportunity to celebrate America's favorite family.
With this feature, we decided to bypass the main members of the Simpson family and focus on the supporting characters – it's more fun figuring out if you're a Barney or an Otto than a Homer or Marge, anyway. Enjoy!

One of the hallmarks of The Simpsons has been the show's chalkboard gag: The audience is introduced to Bart Simpson as he scrawls some message repeatedly on a chalkboard during detention.
Through the show's history, the tone of the chalkboard gag has veered from pop culture commentary ("I can't see dead people") to sheer absurdity ("The First Amendment does not cover burping").
But this week's episode was different.

Sam Simon, who made a fortune as co-creator of The Simpsons, is enjoying giving away untold millions as he battles terminal colon cancer.
The nine-time Emmy-winning writer-producer, 58, says he is using his wealth to, among other causes, help shut down roadside zoos and abusive animal shows, fund a dog-rescue haven in Malibu, and fight hunger, he tells the Hollywood Reporter.
"I get pleasure from it. I love it. I don't feel like it is an obligation," says Simon, who more than 20 years ago co-created the animated FOX phenomenon with cartoonist Matt Groening.

Maggie Simpson may not be much of a talker on her FOX cartoon, but this year she plans on making a statement on the red carpet.
The youngest member of The Simpsons clan stars in the Oscar-nominated animated short film The Longest Daycare and the eternal infant is looking for fans to help choose her dress for her big night out Sunday. Scroll through all of her proposed looks in our carousel of images above.
PEOPLE has a sneak peek at Simpson's three potential red carpet looks: a sparkly, red, backless stunner; a purple, tiered, strapless gown; and a leg-barring black number reminiscent of Angelina Jolie's 2012 Oscars dress. All can be paired with complementary pacifiers, of course.
