Series 18 Episode 10 "The Wife Aquatic" - Homer applies 'Opposite Day' logic to his observation that a certain man is "very ugly". A fisherman says that if Homer is left alone for a long time, "...he'll be as old and as queer as I am." Homer replies: "Queer strange or queer gay?" Fisherman: "Oh, a touch of both".

Bart and his best friend Milhouse also have a 'bromance'. Milhouse publicly expresses his affection for Bart's sister Lisa, but is it a mask for his true feelings towards Bart?

Series 18 Episode 12 "Little Big Girl" - Bart's heterosexuality is called into question quite a lot in this episode, even though he is in a relationship with a girl. A marriage guy says sarcastically to Bart: "What, are you gay?". When Bart and his girlfriend eat spaghetti like the 2 "Lady And The Tramp" dogs, Bart avoids the kiss by substituting himself for a dog. When they do kiss, Bart turns his photo of Milhouse over so Milhouse is looking away from the kiss. Bart accidentally covers Milhouse with white foam shot from fire extinguishers (do I have to explain this metaphor?). When Bart kisses the girl, their lips are seemingly divided by a phallic shaped chainsaw wielded by a Freud lookalike psychiatrist in the movie that Bart and the girl are watching, and which frames their kiss. Freud is famous for his theories on suppressed sexuality.

Bart looks at a packet of "Rice Krispies" and says of the cereal's male mascots SNAP, CRACKLE and POP: "Look what Snap's doing to Pop while Crackle watches!" We're not told why Bart would say this. Bart drinks a mixture of white salt and water (again, do I need to explain?). Bart and Homer sing "Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder how you are." The word TWINKLE is slang for a young, effeminate gay man and also 'cottaging'. TWINK is slang for a young gay man. TWINKLE TOES is attributed to dancers, including male ballet dancers, often thought of as gay (rightly or wrongly). "Twinkle Little Star" was a play featuring a homosexual pantomime 'dame' (man dressed as a woman).

Smithers – whose homosexuality is not in doubt – says "I'm flaming!"
