On The Lost Jokes and Story Arcs of "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song"

What I love--besides all the inside Simpsons baseball--is that the writers did some amazing work in writing around the problems they face in stuffing a big story into 22 minutes. So even though Oakley didn't love how Flanders eventually got fired, it brought out a pretty classic line by Chalmers: "That sounded like a prayer. A PRAYER in a public school. God has NO PLACE within these walls, just like facts don't have a place within organized religion." I love this episode.
