Homer Simpson gets ECT!

Great scene from The Simspons "Don't Fear the Roofer" (Season 16, Episode 16), where Homer gets ECT because of a psychotic episode. Homer befriends a beer loving roofer, Ray. Ray and Homer attempt to repair Homer's roof. Ray never shows and everyone believes that Ray is a figment of Homer's imagination. After a round of ECT, however, Homer and family meet Ray in the hospital lobby who explains the errors in the previous testimonials.

Homer seems to like the taste of the rubber biteblock very much! Even though a great cartoon, again ECT is depicted as a kind of torture.

Very good! (hehehe)
Not so good because ECT appears as a punitive method.
But, as it was said once: ”It’s better to criticize the treatment than not even talk about it!
