We choo-choo choose "I Love Lisa" from season four of The Simpsons as one of the best ever Valentine's Day episodes because it is full of humor and heart. When Lisa gives Ralph a valentine – so he doesn't feel left out – he develops a hopeless crush on her. Lisa tries her best to be kind, but she reaches her boiling point at an especially inopportune time.

"I Love Lisa" has several quotable lines including Homer saying, "Ah, sweet pity. Where would my love life have been without it?" and Ralph saying, "I was so glad when you Cho-Cho-Chose me."

Original Airing: Feb 11 1993

Season: The Simpsons season 4
