9 Simpsons Characters Who Are Way Darker Than You Remember
While we’re on the subject of suicide (What a great way to end a list about a beloved cartoon, huh?) let’s talk about the time in that Homer casually decides to off himself by tying himself a boulder and drowning himself. No, seriously, it happened. In the season one episode “Homer’s Odyssey”, Homer gets fired from the nuclear plant, and after an unsettling scene in which he breaks open his 10 year old’s piggy bank in an attempt to steal beer money, Homer leaves his family a note and heads for a bridge. He is only stopped when his family follows him, and is almost run over by a car. This spurs Homer to lead a crusade on safety which gives him a new lease on life and eventually leads to him being offered a new job at the plant. So yeah, if you’ve ever wondered how Homer got his job as safety inspector, that’s the reason…the deeply upsetting reason.
Key Line: `Dear Family.  I am an utter failure, and you’ll be better off without me.  By the time you read this, I will be in my watery grave.’ (An excerpt from his actual suicide note…Have a nice day…)
