Not that it's vital, but Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is caused by breathing in silica dust. But there you go.

I am the one who put in this easter egg. I made a mistake. It is right after Otto says something about being a good rolemodel that he says it. Write your comments down here. | | \/

I'm pretty sure that most of the dialogue on "The Simpsons" was ad-libbed, so it's possible that the closed captioning was taken from the original script (which would explain why some of the captions differ from what's actually said). But it's possible that the person who captioned that episode decided to have a little fun (maybe it was his/her last day on the job?) and start adding a few ad-libs of his/her own.

The name of the disease is Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis which is one of the longest words in the english language. If my memory serves correctly, it is a lung disease caused by inhaling volcanic ash.

Great. Now I'm going to watch everything with the captions opened. Here's something for you all: if you are watching a movie that has been released to network TV, watch with the captions and you will usually see the original dialogue (swear words, for example) from the movie that was edited in the for-tv audio. No specific examples, just keep an eye out.

About closed captioning, I found it extremely amusing when I once saw the "Simpson & Son Revitalizing Tonic" episode where Abe asks, "What's wrong with your wife." He says the 13 syllabled name of some obscure disease - they actually spelled it out on the screen. Can anyone actually remember and spell out the name of the disease for me? And I'm also looking for a .jpg of Homer's Yearbook photo (Quote: "I can't believe I ate the whole thing.") - anyone have that?

There are a few in the episode "Lisa the Tree Hugger." When Homer drops Lisa off at the meeting, then starts driving around in donuts, he says, "Mmm... donuts." However the caption is a line from the song "Love Is A Battlefield," complete with the notes that let you know it's music. In the beginning, when Bart throws his game system into the fire, the captioning is different, but I didn't catch what it said. Something about "store in a cool, dry place." Does anyone else know what the captioning was? Also, the song at the end, "Your Log is My Log" has a few delightful lyrics changes.

This is completely off topic but, I searched the word Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis on wikipedia, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis) at the bottom they mentioned a Simpson’s episode (Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy) under "In popular culture"

ar0008: Yup, and sometimes it's some copywritten word in the captions that they weren't allowed to use

there is another caption change in the episode where lisa is guarding that really old tree from being cut down. in the last part where they start singing that song about how the tree is going down. the captioned version is changed and much funnier than the dialogue.
