Rankings are from Buzzfeed, graph made by me.




















Impossible to choose a single favorite moment but Smithers's failed marriage to a Southern belle ranks pretty highly for me:

One issue is the ranking seems to be just one person so a host of potential age and cohort effects. Would be interesting to compare with a more representative ranking.

Interesting on Alan. The reviewer on Mashable seems to have mostly got it right. The R package is nice.
