Milhouse Van Houten is The Fugitive - Lisa’s Rival
Based on the 60′s TV show, the Fugitive is a smart, sturdy thriller that revolves around Dr. Richard Kimble (played in the film by Harrison Ford, the TV show by David Janssen) who escapes custody after being sentenced for killing his wife, which he denies, and sets out to prove his innocence whilst tracking the real killer. The films real star is Tommy Lee Jones, playing the bloodhound-esque Deputy U.S. Marshall Samuel Gerard, a role for which he won an Oscar (he’s been nominated for three others). He provides the icon sequence that’s partly parodied here, after being spotted Kimble is tracked by Gerard and his team until they reach a tunnel, out of options Kimble jumps down a storm drain and finds himself in a dam. As Gerard tracks him he falls down part of the passage, presenting a nearby Kimble with his firearm, he takes it but then throws it away asserting “I didn’t kill my wife”, which prompts the famous response, “I don’t care”. Kimble charges off, but finds himself at an outlet high above the dam, Gerard with his back-up weapon corners him and attempts to arrest Kimble but before he can, Kimble jumps and miraculously survives. There’s a little bad CG and an obvious dummy but it’s a great scene in a very good movie. It’d been out a year by the time this episode aired, and proves the films popularity, the Simpsons only picks on pop culture that’s noteworthy.
