Does anyone have any insight into why the title of this episode is misspelled? Surely this was done deliberately, as I cannot fathom why such a serious error could pass unnoticed. 84.208.80.183 15:59, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

And how do you think it is misspelled? Acaeton 16:31, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

"Loose" is an adjective, meaning not tight; not closely constrained or constricted or constricting; as in "loose clothing" or "a loose screw". The verb meaning fail to keep or to maintain; cease to have, either physically or in an abstract sense, is spelled "lose". Hence the correctly spelled title would be "To lose the fateful lightning". As it is it makes no grammatical sense whatsoever. The question 84.208.80.183 is asking is therefore valid. Was this a conscious choice on the part of the producers or, as seems more likely, an error which for some 10 years has gone uncommented on? Dubuisson 16:47, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it makes complete sense. Clouds don't "lose" lightning like you would lose car keys, they "loose" it upon the earth. So when, say, somebody unleashes the fateful lightning, they 'loose' it upon the earth (E.G. from the simpsons tv series, the character Mr. Burns often says "Release the hounds." He could also phrase it "Let loose the Hounds." Acaeton 00:22, June 21, 2010 (UTC)
