The Simpsons are no strangers in going meta and breaking the fourth wall, and on Sunday’s episode titled “The Girl On The Bus,” they did just that when Homer texts his daughter Lisa saying that he can’t find his phone. Lisa then replies to him pointing out that he’s texting from it. An embarrassed Homer then replies with that gif of himself backing into the bushes.
This gif and meme originates from the fifth season episode “Homer Loves Flanders,” where Homer becomes friends with his neighbor Ned Flanders after they spend time together. That episode aired all the way back in 1994.
The Simpsons will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year in December.
