maggie simpson: totally rad

how cool is maggie as a teenager? the above screenshot is from the episode entitled "lisa's wedding," in which a fortune teller at a renaissance fair predicts lisa's future: she becomes involved with a loathsome (albeit devilishly handsome) cur named hugh to whom she becomes engaged. however, she calls off the wedding because of hugh's failure to accept her family. (it's seriously one of the most heartbreaking episodes.) at one point, we get a glimpse of maggie at age sixteen, who apparently can't stop talking on the phone. but of course, we never hear her speak. maggie has always been my favorite simpson. i know lisa gets all the credit for being a feminist icon, but maggie has that cool stoicism that we all wish we had.
