At the funeral of Springfield's own Chip Davis Mr Burns regrets losing old flame Lila because he was too selfish to do something good for five minutes, Kent Brockman regrets not moving to national news when he had the chance and Homer feels bad about selling his Apple stock to buy a bowling ball. Marge is unhappy because she believes that listening to Kiss records when pregnant contributed to Bart's bad behaviour. Kent goes to interview for the nationals but has too much integrity to cheat and Burns, finding Lila dead, works in a soup kitchen. Homer's bowling ball however is put to good use, shooting down Bart who has drifted away with a clutch of balloons. Written by don @ minifie-1

This episode, however, uses the real names for the company and its products this is the first instance of a product in the Simpsons universe being referred to by their real names instead of a parody.

A Sweet and Funny Episode,
2 May 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Four Regrettings and a Funeral is a brilliant Simpsons episode with a very well written storyline and a lot of very funny scenes.The episode is also really emotional and sweet as we look back at some of the regrets some Simpsons characters have at the funeral of a good friend (who we have never met before).The show also makes a nice mention of Edna Krabappel,in the opening when Bart writes "we'll really miss you Mrs K" on the blackboard,because her voice actress,Marcia Wallace,passed away recently last year,and after seeing this I'm guessing we won't be seeing Edna again (being played by a different voice actress),which upsets me as a longtime Simpsons fan,she has been a very important character throughout the twenty five seasons of the show,and she will definitely be missed.Four Regrettings and a Funeral is a funny and emotional episode that deals very much with the subject of death and life regrets,but still manages very well to be humorous at the same time.

Following the death of a friend,Homer,Marge,Kent Brockman and Mr Burns address the biggest regrets of their lives so far,and try to make up for these regrets.
