The Simpsons has prominently featured a solar eclipse twice in its long run, but most memorably in the Season 20 episode “Gone Maggie Gone,” where Marge is stricken blind and Lisa goes undercover as a nun. Just kidding: Everyone actually remembers the eclipse from “Marge Vs. The Monorail,” in which the celestial event briefly saves the day by stopping—temporarily—the malfunctioning solar-powered train as it speeds around Springfield, all before the moon dances on its merry way. This moment is the reason that, much like the sun’s brief spell of darkness on Monday, all noise in the vicinity of The A.V. Club office will be blotted out by nerds saying, in unison, “THE COSMIC BALLET GOES ON.” [Sean O’Neal] {read}
