NOTE TO TV TROPE EDITORS EDITING THIS PAGE: The Simpsons has over 500 total episodes so in an effort to make this page look more organized, try to name the episode each individual "FUNNY MOMENT" was from (including the random entries below the folders) and place it into the correct season folder. If there is confusion about what episode was in a certain season, open this PAGE in a separate tab or window for use as a reference.



Season 1

1 - Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire

  • Homer answers the phone.

 Homer: Y'ello?

Patty: Marge please.

Homer: Who is this?

Patty: Can I speak to Marge?

Homer: (irritated) This is one of her sisters, isn't it?

Patty: Is Marge there?

Homer: Who shall I say is calling?

(long pause)

Patty: Marge please.

  • Bart steps into a tattoo parlor.

 Bart: One "Mother," please.

Tattoo Artist: Wait a minute, how old are you?

Bart: 21, sir.

Tattoo Artist: Get in the chair.

2 - Bart the Genius

  • This.

 Teacher: You know what happens when you mix acids with bases, don't you?

Bart: Of course I do.

*KABOOM*

  • After Bart confesses to Homer, Homer switches and chases a naked Bart to his room, leading to Homer angrily beating on the door and this simple gem of a dialogue.

 Marge: What's going on with those two?

Lisa: I think Bart's stupid again.

3 - Homer's Odyssey

4 - There's No Disgrace Like Home

  • The visit to Dr. Marvin Monroe. ("My finger slipped. *bzzt* AAAH!" "So did mine!") At the height of it, they burden the energy grid, causing all the lights in the city block to flicker.

5 - Bart the General

  • Abe tells Bart to stand up for himself when Nelson bullies him, only for Jasper to walk through and take his newspaper despite his protests.
  • Herman going crazy and bayoneting a dummy, his stealing a century old war treaty from Otto von Bismarck, anything with Herman.

6 - Moaning Lisa

  • Homer and Bart play a video boxing game:

 Homer: Come on, come on, let's go.

Bart: (as announcer) In the red trunks, with a record of 48 wins and no losses, the undisputed champ of the town, Battling Bart Simpson! And in the lavender trunks, with a record of zero wins and 48 defeats... oh, correction, humiliating defeats, all of them by knock-out...

Homer: Must you do this every time...

Bart: Homer "the Human Punching Bag" Simpson!

7 - The Call of the Simpsons

  • PORK CHOPS APLENTY
  • Homer setting a trap for a rabbit, which flings it far into the distance. Animal abuse has never been funnier.
  • Homer as Bigfoot.

8 - The Telltale Head

9 - Life on the Fast Lane

10 - Homer's Night Out

11 - The Crepes of Wrath

  • Homer's final promise to Albanian exchange student/spy Adil has humor in it: as Adil is being loaded onto the plane to be deported, Homer tearfully promises to send him "those civil defense plans you wanted!"

12 - Krusty Gets Busted

13 - Some Enchanted Evening

  • "Leave Homer?!" "Don't use his name!" "Leave Pedro?!"
  • The entire Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers Babysitting Service scene. Marge calls but the family is blacklisted from there because the kids are hellians. Homer calls back using the fake name "Sampson" just for the receptionist to badmouth The Simpsons, referring to Homer as the big ape father. Homer's facial expressions are hysterical.


Season 2

14 - Bart Gets an "F"

  • Bart's moment of disgust when he realises he kissed Mrs Krabbapel.

 Bart: I passed, I passed, I... KISSED THE TEACHER! (spitting in disgust).

16 - Treehouse of Horror

17 - Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish

18 - Dancin' Homer

19 - Dead Putting Society

20 - Bart vs. Thanksgiving

21 - Bart the Daredevil

  • The ending. Homer has just fallen down Springfield Gorge, hits his head repeatedly on the way up and put onto on a stretcher on an ambulance. Next second, the ambulance hits a tree, Homer rolls out of the ambulance and falls back down the gorge. It is an iconic moment and one of the funniest in Simpsons' history.
    • Even better: years later, in The Movie, they go back to that location in the climax and the ambulance is still there.
  • The short scene immediately after that with Homer in the hospital bed next to daredevil Lance Murdock has one of the best lines in the show's history.

 Homer: You think you've got guts, try raising my kids.

    • Also of note from the episode is Lance Murdock's failed stunt. He successfully jumps over a large tank of water full of sharks, electric eels, pirhanas, aligators and lions but as he rests his bike at the top of the landing ramp and waves to the crowd he falls in. Then he tried to climb over the side, almost makes it and is pulled back in by the lion.

  • When Homer is posing as Mr. Burns at the Post Office to reclaim a very insulting letter he wrote to him earlier.

 Homer: (using fake voice [1]) Hello. My name is Mr. Burns. I believe you have a letter for me.

Clerk: OK, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?

Homer: (still using fake voice)...I don't know!

(cut to Homer and Bart outside the Post Office)

Homer: (sarcastically) Great plan, Bart.

  • This comment from Mr. Burns, after reading Homer's letter:

 Mr. Burns: I could crush him like an ant. But it would be too easy. No, revenge is a dish best served cold. I'll bide my time until... Oh, what the hell, I'll just crush him like an ant.


Season 3

36 - Stark Raving Dad

  • The mental patient who thinks he's Michael Jackson (Jackson provided his speaking voice), had the show on the cusp of its arguable golden age with gags such as this phone call to Bart, who is understandably incredulous that the person on the other end is Jackson:

 "Michael": It's true. I'm with your father in a mental institution.

Bart: Uh-huh. And is Elvis with you?

"Michael": He could be. It's a big hospital.

  • This bit:

 Bart: Mom, Dad's in a mental hospital!

Marge: Oh, dear. Mother was right.

37 - Mr. Lisa Goes to Washington

38 - When Flanders Failed

39 - Bart the Murderer

  • Fat Tony "explains" to Bart how hijacking a truckload of cigarettes isn't wrong.

 Bart: Are you guys crooks?

Fat Tony: Say Bart, is it wrong for a man to steal a loaf of bread to feed his starving family?

Bart: No.

Fat Tony: Suppose you have a large starving family. Is it wrong to steal a truckload of bread to feed them?

Bart: Uh-huh.

Fat Tony: And say your family don't like bread, they like . . . cigarettes.

Bart: I guess that's OK.

Fat Tony: And what if instead of giving them away, you sold them at a price that was practically giving them away. Would that be a crime, Bart?

Bart: . . . Hell no!

Fat Tony: Enjoy your present.

40 - Homer Defined

  • As the plant is about to catastrophically melt down, Mr. Burns is putting on an advanced radiation suit while Smithers stands by.

 Smithers: Sir, where's my radiation suit?

Mr. Burns: (annoyed) Oh, how the hell should I know?

    • The suit is clearly labelled "Smithers" by the way.
  • Also, this moment only seconds away from the meltdown:

 Smithers: There may never be another chance to say: I love you, sir."

Mr. Burns: Oh, hot dog. Thanks for making my last moments on Earth socially awkward.

41 - Like Father, Like Clown

42 - Treehouse of Horror II

  • The Bart Zone:

 Krusty: Well, we're still on. Three hundred and forty-six consecutive hours, and all because of one little boy who... who WON'T LET ME STOP!! Anyway, now let's go over and see if Sideshow Mel has any more of those legal, over-the-counter wake-up drugs of his!!

    • "Oh, good! The curtains are on fire!"
    • "The ball is turning into a fat, bald man! And it's no good!"
  • In the third segment, Homer gets a job as a grave digger...on the night that Mr. Burns and Smithers are searching for a brain to implant into their new robot.

 Mr. Burns: Hel~lo! An open grave! Smithers, get him out quickly; the stench is overpowering.

Smithers: Uh, sir? That's Homer Simpson... (scoff) he wasn't exactly a "model employee."

Mr. Burns: Well, who is a model...(Evil Eye) employee?

(Smithers' head vanishes, replaced with just a floating brain wearing glasses)

Smithers: (panicking) Simpson will do just fine, sir!

(Smithers is dragging the bag with Homer in it over rocks, etc., making him moan in pain.)

Smithers: Did you hear that, sir?

Mr. Burns: No, I didn't. Who is it? Frankenstein? The booger man?!

Smithers: It's the man in the bag, sir; I think he's alive!

Mr. Burns: (walks over to the bag, wielding a shovel) Bad corpse! (thwack) Bad corpse! (thwack) Stop! (thwack) Scaring! (thwack) Smithers! (Homer whimpers inside the bag) Satisfied?

Smithers: Thank you, sir.

    • Mr. Burns is removing Homer's brain from his head so it can be placed into the robot.

 Mr. Burns: Smithers hand me that ice cream scoop.

Smithers: Ice cream scoop?

Mr. Burns: Damn it, Smithers! This isn't rocket science, it's brain surgery!

    • "Well, now that I've saved the world maybe I oughta spruce-up the ol' homestead!"
    • "Look at me! I'm Davy Crockett!"

43 - Lisa's Pony

44 - Saturdays of Thunder

45 - Flaming Moe's

  • The Flaming Moe song:

 When the weight of the world has got you down

And you want to end your life

Bills to pay, a dead end job

And problems with your wife

Well don't throw in the towel cause there's

A place right down the block

Where you can drink your miseries away

At Flaming Moes (lets all go Flaming Moes)

Where Liquor in a mug

Can can warm you like a hug

And happiness is just a Flaming Moe away

Happiness is just a Flaming Moe away

    • Also:

 Marge: Maybe you could take some consolation in the fact that something you created is making so many people happy.

Homer: Oh, look at me! I'm making people happy! I am the magical man from happy land! In a gumdrop house on lollipop laaaaaaane! (storms out, sticks his head back in) Oh, by the way, I was being sarcastic!

Marge: Well, duh.

46 - Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk

47 - I Married Marge

 Homer: Wow! Who would have ever guessed Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker's father?

Moviegoers Waiting To See The Film: Oh come on! Thanks a lot! Why did you have to spoil it for us?!

48 - Radio Bart

49 - Lisa the Greek

50 - Homer Alone

51 - Bart the Lover

  • Homer's contributions to the Swear Jar; every time he swears, he has to put in a quarter. This starts a montage of scenes in which he can't control his swearing:

 (In church, Homer blindly puts money into a collection plate)

Bart: Homer, that was a twenty!

Homer: (pause) DA--!

(Jump Cut to him dropping two coins into the jar.)

(While bowling, the last pin fails to fall over)

Homer: Oh, you son of a--!

(Jump Cut to him dropping more change into the jar.)

(Homer sees Ned Flanders after being suggested by Homer to shave his mustache while taking out the trash.)

Ned: Hey Homer! You know, I owe you one, buddy! No sooner than I shaved off the ol' cookie-duster that a lady cast me in a commercial! (checks mail) I tell you, the way these checks keep coming it, it's almost criminal.

Homer: (after Ned walks away) YOU DIRTY BAS--!

(Jump Cut to him dropping even more change into the jar.)

(Homer finishes building a very shoddy dog house. It doesn't have a door.)

Homer: Whaddya think, Lisa?

Lisa: How's the dog supposed to get in?

Homer: Well, he just goes...(pause) Awwwwww--

(Jump Cut to him dropping still more change into the jar.)

(Homer is asleep in a hammock. Out of nowhere, a beehive falls out and on to his stomach.)

Homer: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA--

(Jump Cut to a badly stung hand dropping a huge pile of change into the jar.)

  • A little later, Homer is building the doghouse and smacks his thumb with a hammer.

 Homer: Oh. Fudge. That's... broken. (He turns around and steps on a nail, which goes through his foot and sticks out of the top of his shoe.) Fiddle-dee-dee. That will require a tetanus shot. I'm not going to swear, but I am going to... KICK THIS DOGHOUSE DOWN! (He does.)

  • As for the main story: when the whole family is composing a letter to Ms. Krabappel explaining why "Woodrow" (a fake man Bart made up to screw with her after he saw her personal ad) can't see her again, the family come up with a lot of rejected ideas. Bart's and Homer's are the funniest ones, from Bart suggesting that "crocodiles bit off my face," to Homer repeatedly pitching "Three simple words: I am gay."

52 - Homer at the Bat

 Barney: And I say England's greatest Prime Minister was Lord Palmerston!

Wade Boggs: Pitt the Elder!

Barney: LORD PALMERSTON!

Boggs: PITT! THE! ELDER!

Barney: Okay, you asked for it, Boggs! (he punches out Boggs)

Moe: Yeah, that's showin' 'im, Barn! 'Pitt the Elder'...

Barney: LORD PALMERSTON! (he punches out Moe)

  • The mishaps of each of the professional players, especially the fate of Ozzie Smith.

 Ozzie Smith: (while falling into oblivion) AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH--Hey, cool!--AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

  • Homer winning the game for his team by getting hit in the head with the baseball is funny enough, but then the team's victory photo (which closes out the episode) is even funnier. We see the professional players all reflecting their predicaments (like Ozzie Smith as a ghost, and Ken Griffey Jr. and his gigantism), and an unconscious Homer lying down face-first.

53 - Separate Vocations

54 - Dog of Death

  • This conversation between Mr. Burns and Smithers:

 Smithers: People like dogs, Mr. Burns.

Mr. Burns: Nonsense, dogs are idiots. Think about it Smithers, if I came into your room and started sniffing at your crotch and slobbering all over your face, what would you say?

Smithers: Umm...if you did it, sir?

 Homer: Well, he's got all the money in the world, but there's one thing he can't buy.

Marge: What's that?

(beat)

Homer: A dinosaur.

55 - Colonel Homer

56 - Black Widower

57 - The Otto Show

  • The entire first half with Spinal Tap. "We salute you, our half-inflated dark lord!"
  • Otto's mad drive to school after his impromptu concert (including crashing into Spinal Tap's bus, none of the police officers bothering to get the license number of the bus as it crashed through a police picnic, and all the bystanders rushing to pay phones after seeing the "How Am I Driving?" bumper sticker on the detached bumper), followed by his explaining to Principal Skinner and the cops that he doesn't have a license or wear his own underwear.
  • Otto mistaking Marge's sister Patty for a transsexual ("Have you always been a chick? I-I don't want to offend you, but you were born a man, weren't you? You can tell me. I'm open-minded.") and Patty dropping the green driver's test marker (after explaining to Otto that she uses the green pen for correct answers and the red one for incorrect answers).
  • Otto studying for his driver's test.

 Otto: "Alcohol increases your ability to drive." (flips to answer key) False?! Oh, man!

  • Patty telling Otto that he "failed every segment [of his driver's test], and misspelled 'bus' on [his] application."

58 - Bart's Friend Falls in Love

59 - Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?

  • This exchange between Homer and Herb:

 Homer: I can't believe we blew 2,000 bucks on this, when right now rollers could be kneading my buttocks!

Herb: Homer, could you stop thinking about your ass?!

Homer: I try, but I can't...

  • And when Herb first arrived:

 Herb: What am I going to say? This is the guy who ruined me. But on the other hand, he's family. So many conflicting emotions, how to express them?

(Homer opens the door.)

Homer: Herb? (Herb punches Homer.)

  • A little bit later:

 Herb: Sorry, Homer, but I'm still mad at you. Every word you say makes me want to punch you in the face!

Homer: Well, while you're a guest in my house could you just kick me in the butt?

Herb: I'll try, but I'm not making any promises!

  • And at the end:

 Herb: And Maggie, the one who helped me reclaim my fortune, I'll give you anything your heart desires.

Maggie: (Baby gibbersh)

Translator: I want what the dog's eating. (Cut to a shot of Santa's Little Helper eating from his dish.)

Homer: D'oh!


Season 4

60 - Kamp Krusty

  • Bart and Lisa talking to their parents before leaving on the bus for camp:

 Bart: Don't look in my closet, in fact, stay out of my room altogether.

Lisa: (yelling from the bus) If the pets die, don't replace them, I'll know!

    • Lisa: (writing letter to home) I no longer fear hell, for I have been to Kamp Krusty.
  • Same ep:

 Lisa: Bart, I think we're going to die.

Bart: (matter-of-factly) We're all gonna die Lis.

Lisa: I meant soon!

Bart: (sadly) So did I.

  • Homer and Marge hearing of the hostile takeover of Kamp Krusty on the news. When they see Bart has become the ringleader, Homer (who had spent the entire summer completely stress-free and had gotten into notably better shape) yells out, "D'OH!", and immediately, his newly grown hair falls from his head, and his gut expands to his pre-summer shape.
  • How Krusty reacted to Bart's grievances:

 Bart: They fed us gruel, they forced us to make wallets for export, and one of the campers was eaten by a bear!

Krusty: Oh my god! (breaks down sobbing)

Bart: ...actually, the bear just ate his hat.

Krusty: (collected) Was it a nice hat?

Bart: Oh yeah.

Krusty: Oh my god! (breaks down sobbing)

61 - A Streetcar Named Marge

  • Marge going crazy and almost knocking Ned over.

62 - Homer the Heretic

  • On the subject of Homer's culinary talents: While skipping church, he pours pancake batter, caramels and liquid smoke into a waffle iron, wraps it around a stick of butter, and eats it like a burrito.

  "Mmmm, fattening..."

  • At the end when Homer talks to God in a second dream:

 Homer: God, I gotta ask ya: What's the meaning of life?

God: Homer, I can't tell you that. You'll find out when you die.

Homer: Aww, I can't wait that long!

God: ...You can't wait six months?

Homer: No, tell me now!

God: Oh, alright. The meaning of life is---(cut off by the theme)

63 - Lisa the Beauty Queen

  • When Lisa finally gets crowned Little Miss Springfield (after the actual winner gets struck by lightning), a new wax figure is created in the Springfield Wax Museum. The problem is the curators just stuck Lisa's head on a wax statue of Dr. Ruth. The funny part is that Dr. Ruth's head now resides in the Chamber of Horrors next to Mr. T and Ronald Reagan.
  • During the beginning sequence with the school carnival, there were a couple of funny moments:
    • Groundskeeper Willie trying to sell haggis from his stand (which looks like it's nowhere near the school carnival).
    • A part that's usually cut in American (U.S.) syndication where Otto cranks up the speed on a Rocket Spinner ride and the car flies off and crashes into the school. Otto then tells Bart that he's going to Mexico until this blows over and is chased by an angry mob.
    • Another scene lost to syndication: Milhouse goes into a crappily-built haunted house that turns out to be a shed with the three bullies (Dolph, Jimbo, and Kearney) standing under a bare lightbulb, getting ready to beat Milhouse up. When Milhouse steps out, Bart steps in, thinking that it's a regular haunted house.

64 - Treehouse of Horror III

  • From the first segment "Clown Without Pity":

 Homer: Marge! The doll's trying to kill me and the toaster's been laughing at me!

 Old Man: Take this object. But beware, it carries a terrible curse.

Homer: Oh, that's bad.

Old Man: But it comes with a free frogurt!

Homer: That's good!

Old Man: The frogurt is also cursed.

Homer: Oh, that's bad.

Old Man: But you get your choice of topping!

Homer: That's good!

Old Man: The toppings contain potassium benzoate. (pause) That's bad.

Homer: Can I go now?

    • Also from that segment, the doll attempts to kill Homer while in the tub and Homer runs, screaming and naked through the kitchen, where his wife and his sisters-in-law are having lunch.

 Patty: There goes the last lingering thread of my sexuality.

  • From the second segment "King Homer":
    • Smithers had just knocked out Homer with a gas bomb:

 Mr. Burns: Excellent work, Smithers! When we get back, I'm giving you a raise! (King Homer eats Smithers;Beat) ...Oh, well.

    • After King Homer falls three stories:

 Marge: He's not dead!

Mr. Burns: No, but his career is. I remember when Al Jolson ran amok at the Winter Garden and climbed the Chrysler building. After that, he couldn't even get arrested in this town.

    • After King Homer has broken free and started his rampage.

 Mr. Burns: I'm dreading the reviews, I can tell you that.

Marge: (sees Homer outside) Oh hi, Homie!

  • From the third segment "Dial 'Z' for Zombie":
    • The zombies have risen from the grave so Bart and Lisa urgently tell Homer:

 Bart & Lisa: Dad, dad we've done something terrible!

Homer: Did you crash the car?

Bart & Lisa: No.

Homer: Did you raise the dead?

Bart & Lisa: Yes.

Homer: But the car's OK?

Bart & Lisa: Uh-huh.

Homer: All right, then.

    • Also this moment:

 Bart: Dad, you killed the zombie Flanders!

Homer: He was a zombie?

65 - Itchy & Scratchy: The Movie

66 - Marge Gets a Job

67 - New Kid on the Block

68 - Mr. Plow

  • This exchange during Homer's commercial:

 Homer: (smiling) My prices are so low, you'll think I've suffered brain damage!

Bart: You are fully licensed and bonded by the city, aren't you Mr. Plow?

Homer: (stops smiling, talks out of the corner of his mouth) Shut up, boy.

(Homer growls angrily at Bart as they watch the commercial on TV)

Homer: So, (cue jingle) Call Mr. Plow. That's my name. That name again is Mr. Plow.

 Homer: Don't worry, this baby's as surefooted as a mountain goat. (Cut to nearby mountain goat, which slips off a cliff repeatedly)

  • Homer's hair-raising trip across a rickety wooden bridge, during which he sees a full suspension bridge a short distance away that he could have used.
  • Homer and Customer

 Woman: Could you make sure not to scrape my asphalt?

Homer: Kiss my asphalt...

 "I never needed plastic molding to improve my physique." (taps chest) "Pure West."

69 - Lisa's First Word

  • Homer telling baby Lisa that he opened a college fund for her at Lincoln Savings and Loan (which infamously shut down in the 1980s), followed by Homer dismissing Marge's fears that Bart will be jealous of his new baby sister with: "Yeah, well, Bart can kiss my hairy, yellow butt!" (Word of God states that this line was ad-libbed and nearly got cut by the censors because they thought the line was too pedophilic, despite that telling someone to kiss their ass is more of a rude brush-off, rather than a sexual come-on).
  • Bart's refusal to address Homer properly.

 Bart: Homer!

Homer: Homer's what grownups call me. Call me Daddy.

Bart: Homer.

Homer: Daddy.

Bart: Homer.

Homer: Daddy!

Bart: Da-da-da... Domer! (chuckles)

Homer: Why you little--! (strangles Bart)

  • Lisa follows suit, even after naming everything else correctly.

 Homer: Can you say Daddy?

Lisa: Homer.

Homer: No, sweetie. Daddy.

(beat)

Lisa: Homer.

Homer: D'oh!

70 - Homer's Triple Bypass

  • Dr. Nick: Call 1800-D.O.C.T.O.R.B! The "B" is for Bargain!
  • Dr. Nick Riviera is funny throughout the whole episode.

 Dr. Nick: OK, bye. (Reporters are outside the door) It's such a nice day. I think I'll go out the window. (Jumps out the window)

    • The best part there is that he's just gotten finished reassuring Homer and when the reporters are there the first question they yell is "Where'd you hide the bodies?"
  • And another one:

 Dr. Nick: Well if it isn't my old friend Mr. McGreg! With a leg for an arm and an arm for a leg!

  • When he's watching a video on how to perform a triple bypass, shortly before he has to perform that surgery on Homer: "Oh no, blood!"
  • And, of course: "The kneebone's connected to the something; the something's connected to the red thing; the red thing's connected to my wristwatch... Uh oh."
  • To the O.R. team before Homer's surgery: "Now remember, if something should go wrong, let's not get the law involved. You know what they say: 'One hand washes the other.' Oh, that reminds me..." (washes hands)
    • And after that, just as Homer is falling asleep from the anesthetic:

 Dr. Nick: What the hell is that?

  • And of course this Dr. Nick bit:

 P.A. system: Dr. Nick Riviera, paging Dr. Nick Riviera. Please report to the coroner's office immediately.

Dr. Nick: The Coroner?! I'm so sick of that guy.

  • A defining moment for Apu:

 Apu: Poor Mister Homer. Could it be that my snack treats are responsible for his wretched health?

Customer: Gimme some jerky.

Apu: Would you like some vodka with that?

Customer: Oh, what the hell, sure!

  • The COPS opening, which featured: a suicidal man choosing to hurl himself off a building rather than come to Chief Wiggum, Chief Wiggum, Eddie, and Lou shooting at a mummy and Chief Wiggum throwing his gun, and these lyrics to the song ("Springfield's cops are on the take/But what do you expect/With the money we make/Whether in a car or on a horse/We don't mind using/Excessive force")

71 - Marge vs. the Monorail[2]

  • One of Homer's lifelong dreams is mentioned here:

 Homer: Marge, I wanna be a monorail conductor.

Marge: Homer, no.

Homer: It's my lifelong dream!

Marge: Your lifelong dream was to run out on the field during a baseball game and you did it last year! Remember? (Marge points to a framed sports page, with a picture of Homer running onto a baseball field in the middle of a game, with the headline, "Idiot Ruins Game/Springfield Forfeits Pennant").

  • Marge returns from North Haverbrook with someone who helped Mr. Lanley create the defective monorail in that town:

 Marge: Homer, there's a man here who thinks he can help you!

Homer: Batman?!

Marge: No, he's a scientist.

Homer: Batman's a scientist!

Marge: It's not Batman!

  • During "The Monorail Song"...

 Marge: But Main Street's still all cracked and broken!

Bart: Sorry, Mom, the mob has spoken!

  • Homer: "I call the big one Bitey!"
  • Homer: "Do you want to change your name to Homer Junior? The kids can call you "Ho-Ju"!

 Bart: ...I'll get back to you on that.

 Leonard: Well, my work here is done.

Barney: Whaddaya mean, "Your work is done"? You didn't do anything!

Leonard: Heh, heh. Didn't I? (beams away)

    • The grand opening ceremony for the Springfield monorail:

 Mayor Quimby: And let me be the first to say, "Let the force be with you!"

Leonard: Do you even know who I am?

Mayor Quimby: I think I do. Weren't you one of the Little Rascals?

    • On the out-of-control monorail:

 Leonard: A solar eclipse. The cosmic ballet goes on.

Man sitting next to Leonard: Does anyone want to switch seats?

    • As the monorail goes haywire:

 Krusty: KRUSTY WANTS OUT!!! (attempts to jump out of the runaway monorail)

Leonard: No! (saves him) The world needs laughter.

 Simpson, Homer Simpson,

He's the greatest guy in history!

From the town of Springfield,

He's about to hit a chestnut tree! (screams)

(And he does.)

  • The scene where Homer has to find a anchor to stop the monorail.

 (looks at Bart, pictures him as a anchor)

Bart: Think harder Homer.

  • Marge was unable to stop the monorail cause the guy she was with had to have a haircut.
  • The ending.

 Marge: And that was the only folly the people of Springfield embarked upon. Except for the popsicle stick skyscraper. And the 50 foot magnifying glass. And that escalator to nowhere.

  • Lyle Lanley's monorail conducting classes

 Lanley: Mono means one and rail means rail. That concludes our extensive three week course.

Otto: Hey, wait! Who gets to be conductor?

Lanley: I have been monitoring your progress, (he looks in a book with a picture of himself driving to Tahiti with lots of money) and this gentleman stands above the rest. (Does general arm sweep across room and gets ready to leave.)

Homer: Who, me?

Lanley: Yeah, sure.

Homer: Woohoo!

72 - Selma's Choice

  • Lisa becoming the Lizard Queen after drinking the water in the Duff ride.

    • After seeing Bart and Lisa leave with Selma to the amusement park, Homer finds the rotten hoagie on top of the garbage can.

 Homer: "This is all your fault! Oh, how can I stay mad at you?"

(Marge knocks it out of his hands)

73 - Brother from the Same Planet

74 - I Love Lisa

  • During the Presidents' Day play, Milhouse plays Abraham Lincoln, while Bart is John Wilkes Booth. The play's version of the assassination boils down to a mock fight and Bart as The Ahnold - leaving everyone in the audience silent and gaping. Well, almost everyone.

 Homer: C'mon, boy! Finish him off!

    • "You're next, Chester A. Arthur!" (Miss Hoover grabs hold to Bart) "Unhand me, Yankee!"
  • Chief Wiggum's story of how he got tickets for Krusty's show - bumping into him at a porno movie and the clown mistakenly thinking it was a bust.

 Lisa: That story's not appropriate for children.

Wiggum: Really? I keep my pants on in this version.

  • Principal Skinner, while broadcasting over the intercom about Bart's latest prank, suddenly having a Vietnam flashback about one of his friends getting gunned down after making a Valentine for his girlfriend.

75 - Duffless

  • Homer's conversation with his brain in the kitchen.

 Homer: Well, time to go to work.

Homer: Roll in at nine, punch out at five, that's the plan.

Homer's Brain: Heh, heh, heh. They don't suspect a thing. (camera pans down to Homer's mouth, but he doesn't say anything) Well, off to the plant.

Homer: Then to the Duff Brewery.

Homer's Brain: Uh, oh. Did I say that or just think it?

Homer: I've got to think of a lie fast!

Marge: Homer, are you going to the Duff Brewery?

Homer: AAAAH! (he runs out the front door, gets in his car, and drives away)

  • Some time later, when Homer is making his dramatic escape from the plant, he encounters a gigantic spider.

 Homer: (reading off a scroll) "To overcome the Spider's Curse, simple quote a Bible verse!"? Uh, thou shalt not... oh! (he throws a rock at the spider, knocking it out senseless).

  • Homer sees Ralph Wiggum's science fair project and has his own vision of an alcohol-fueled car.

 Homer: (puts the fuel nozzle in the car) One for you. (removes it) One for me. (he inserts the nozzle in his mouth and takes a drink of "GASOHOL", then puts it back in the car) One for you. (removes it again) One for me. (sticks the nozzle in his mouth a second time and drinks some more).

76 - Last Exit to Springfield

  • Homer points out a scar on his head, which he claims to have gotten from a labor strike at the plant years ago. Flashback to said strike, with Homer's colleagues all shouting for this noble cause (equitable treatment from management), and then you see Homer at the empty snack van, periodically smacking the counter with his fist, yelling "WHERE'S MY BURRITO?! WHERE'S MY BURRITO?!" until the awning falls down and crushes his head.
  • "Hired goons?"
  • "You can't treat the working man this way! Someday, we'll form a union and get the fair and equitable treatment we deserve! Then we'll go too far, get corrupt and shiftless, and the Japanese will eat us alive!"

  • Bart's "April Fools' Day" prank on Homer. Enough said.

78 - The Front

79 - Whacking Day

  • The ceremony before "Whacking Day" commences:

 Mayor Quimby: Ladies and gentlemen, Larry White!

Barry White: Barry White!

Mayor Quimby: The card says "Larry."

Barry White: I think I know my own name.

Mayor Quimby: Oh yeah? Well, we'll see!

  • Barry's reaction to what Whacking Day is:

 Barry White: You people make me sick! (crowd cheers) Are they even listening to me?

Mayor Quimby: My guess would be no.

  • One of Grampa's most insane war stories: posing as a German cabaret singer in Dusseldorf and flirting with Adolf Hitler.
    • Also the part after the flashback when Grampa admitted that the only part of the story that was true was that he cross-dressed in the 1940s ("Oh, they had designers then!")
  • Bart referring to Johnny Tremaine as Johnny Deformed after Marge tells Bart about how the protagonist got his hand deformed in an accident.
  • Homer's advice to Lisa on what to do about her feelings against Whacking Day: "Just squeeze your rage into a bitter, little ball, and release it at an appropriate time. Like that time I hit the referee with a whiskey bottle. (in a baby voice): Remember that? When Daddy hit the referee."

80 - Marge in Chains

  • One scene, wherein the aftermath of a bake sale makes the people of Springfield realise the consequences of putting Marge in jail:

 Park Ranger: Fifteen dollars short, exactly what Marge Simpson's marshmallow squares usually bring in. Can we still afford that statue of Lincoln?

Man: No, I'm afraid we'll have to go with something cheaper.

  • (Later)

 Mayor Quimby: People of Springfield, I give you this statue of our thirty-ninth president, Jimmy Carter!

Man in Crowd: Oh, come on!

Man in Crowd: (points angrily) He's history's greatest monster!

  • When Marge is released, the city presents her with a statue of her (which turns out to be the Jimmy Carter statue with her signature hairdo added to it), which the kids turn into a tetherball pole.
  • When the Flanders family wonder how they got the flu, Ned recalls how he once laughed at an episode of Married... with Children:

 "Oh, the network slogan is true: Watch FOX and be damned for all eternity."

81 - Krusty Gets Kancelled

 Krusty: (standing there dumbfounded and smoking a cigarette) What the hell was that?!

  • While the quote itself is funny, the delivery raises it exponentially, and was what instantly cemented the character of Squeaky Voiced Teen as a mainstay when so many others fell away. If they can, someone please link to a video of the scene (context is Krusty begging Mel to join him for his comeback (which then turns into a crowner of heartwarming). Without, further ado,

 Krusty the Clown: Ah, come on. You wanna spend your life hanging out with a bunch of dorky teenagers?

Squeaky Voiced Teen: Here's your taco, Mister. Whoops. It fell in the fryer. I'll get it out. Ow! Ow! Ow-w-w! Ow-w-w!

Sideshow Mel: Sorry Krusty, I like it here. Mr. Johansen treats me with dignity.

Mr. Johansen: Is this clown bothering you, Mel?

Sideshow Mel: It's all right, Mr. Johansen, I'll handle it.

Squeaky Voiced Teen: Here's your taco, sir.

Krusty the Clown: I don't want it!

Squeaky Voiced Teen: But this comes out of my salary! If I had a girlfriend, she'd kill me.

George: Hello, Homer. I'm George Harrison.

Homer: Oh my god! OH MY GOD! Where did you get that brownie?!?

George: Over there, there's a big pile of them.

(Homer just spends the next minute shoving brownies into his mouth, without regarding George Harrison at all.)

George: (Sincerely) Well, what a nice fella.

  • "Number 8." *BELCH* "Number 8." *BELCH* "Number 8." *BELCH*
  • George Harrison takes one look at the B'Sharps' rooftop concert and sums up the entire episode:

(dissolve to Homer's fantasy of playing for the Denver Broncos, also the only player in a leather helmet.)

Announcer: Elway takes the snap and runs it in for a touchdown! Thanks to Elway's patented last second magic, the final score of Super Bowl XXX, Denver: 7 San Francisco: 56.

Homer: (back in the office) Woo-hoo!

    • Plus

 Agent 2: We have places your family can hide in peace and security. Cape Feare, Terror Lake, New Horrorfield, Screamville...

Homer: Ooh! Ice Creamville!

Agent 2: Uh, no. Screamville.

Homer: (screams)

    • and of course

 Agent 1: Tell you what: From now on, you'll be Homer Thompson at Terror Lake. Let's just practice for a bit. When I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," you'll say, "Hi."

Homer: Check.

Agent 1: Hello, Mr. Thompson. (Homer sits at the table silently) Remember now: Your name is Homer Thompson.

Homer: I gotcha.

Agent 1: Hello, Mr. Thompson. (Again, Homer sits at the table silently)

(Agents 1 and 2 look at each other, there's a transition to much later where they've taken their jackets off, 2 is smoking, and the other Simpsons look exhausted.)

Agent 1: (exasperated) Now when I say, "Hello, Mr. Thompson," and press down on your foot, you smile and nod.

Homer: No problem.

Agent 1: (while stomping repeatedly on Homer's foot) Hello, Mr. Thompson.

Homer: (looks at his foot, pauses, then leans back and whispers to Agent 2) I think he's talking to you.

 Marge: You awful man! Stay away from my son!

Bob: Oh, I'll stay away from your son, all right...stay away...forever!

Homer: Oh, no!

Bob: Wait a minute. That's no good. (groans, leaves, then returns) Wait, I've got a good one now - Marge - say, "Stay away from my son!" again.

  • After being told that "once a man is in your home, anything you do to him is nice and legal:"

 Homer: Is that so? (leans head out window) Oh Flanders, won't you join me in my kitchen?

(Homer stands lying menacingly in wait behind a doorframe, pounding his fist into his other hand)

Chief Wiggum: Uhh, doesn't work if you invite him. (Flanders arrives at that very moment)

Ned: Hidely-hey!

Homer: Go home.

Ned: (turns right around) Doodely-doo!

85 - Rosebud

  • The opening scene:

 (An evil cult, bearing a striking resemblance to the Stonecutters, goose-steps in sync with one another, practicing their Ominous Latin Chanting)

Evil Cult: All we own, we oo-wwe. All we own, we oo-wwe!

(Mr. Smithers pops his head out of the window, quietly and beratingly shushing the cult)

Evil Cult: (whispering, on tiptoes) All we own, we oo-wwwe. All we own, we oo-wwwe!

  • Mr. Burns is trying to reclaim his long lost bear Bobo, which is now in Maggie's possession. Smithers and him are climbing across the Simpsons' kitchen ceiling, at night, using suction cups.

 Homer: Mmmmm, 64 slices of American cheese. (He eats a slice of cheese.) 63. (He eats another slice.) 62.

(The scene cuts to morning, Homer is still sat in the same place with a much smaller stack of cheese.)

Homer: (sounding very ill/sick/full) Two. (He eats the last slice.) One.

    • The earlier attempt!

 Mr. Burns: Now remember, Smithers. We have to get in and out in exactly 60 seconds.

(climbs onto zipline, kicks off....then gets stuck midway across. Cut to next morning, and a rescue effort)

Marge: More cocoa, Mr. Burns?

Mr. Burns: Yes.

  • In the same episode:

 Smithers: The preparations for your birthday have begun.

Mr. Burns: I won't get what I really want.

Smithers: No one ever does. (dreams about Mr. Burns bursting out of a cake wearing nothing but a sash singing "Happy birthday, Mr. Smithers...")

  • The Ramones cameo as well. Possibly one of the best of the show.

  Go to Hell, you old bastard! (curtain closes) Hey, I think he liked us!

    • And Mr. Burns' response:

 Mr. Burns: "Have the Rolling Stones killed."

Smithers: "But, sir, that wasn't..."

Lionel Hutz: As of this moment, Lionel Hutz no longer exists. Say hello to Miguel Sanchez!

  • The scene of Bart and Lisa waking up and realizing that neither of their parents are home yet. Lisa points out that Lionel Hutz is still there to care for them. Lisa tries to wake him up. Hutz jumps with a start, brandishing a knife, and yelling, "Don't touch my stuff!" When he realizes where he is, he sheepishly laughs, "Hey, this isn't the YMCA."

88 - Bart's Inner Child

  • Homer reads the "Free Items" column in the newspaper:

90 - The Last Temptation of Homer

  • First, Homer and Mindy are stuck in the elevator together. Homer tries his hardest to think unsexy thoughts (including picturing his sisters-in-law shaving their legs together in the bathroom and picturing his fat, drunken friend humming the I Dream of Jeannie theme while wearing the jumbo thong bikini that Barney bought Homer when he mistook Homer's heart surgery for a sex change operation), then fails at that (as he immediately pictures Mindy in a bikini blowing a kiss) and just jumps out of the elevator in mid-ascent.
    • Also, the fact that the elevator was somehow halfway up the cooling tower.

Homer: Did you know Hogan had tunnels all over you base?

Klink: Hooooo-MERRRR!

    • And later:

 Homer: Oh, this is the worst crisis my marriage has ever faced. COLONEL KLINK, WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?!

  • Homer when he has Raymond and Charlie Babbit from Rain Man at his blackjack table.
  • Homer, attempting to cook his own dinner, combines a full bottle of cloves, a similarly full bottle of Tom Collins mix, and a frozen pie crust. The expression on his face as he tastes it is unforgettable.

  • When he's summing up the situation to Lisa (who just described herself as a "monster" thanks to her Florida costume).

Bond: What's this? "Rules for draw and stud poker"?

Blofeld: What a pity, Mr. Bond. (Jaws and Oddjob grab Bond)

Bond: But, I never lose! It's Homer's fault! (Bond starts getting dragged away) At least tell me your plans for world domination.

Blofeld: I'm not falling for that one again.

92 - Homer the Vigilante

  • The family wakes up and discovers that they have been burglarized.

Homer: D'oh!

Marge: And my necklace!

Homer: (nonchalantly) Eh, that's no big loss.

Marge: Homer, that necklace was a priceless Bouvier family heirloom.

Homer: GET HIM! (They proceed in chasing the student)

  • At the dinner table, this conversation between Homer and Lisa.

 Homer: Lisa, the mob is working on getting your saxophone back, but we've also expanded into other important areas: Literacy programs. Preserving our beloved covered bridges. World domination.

Lisa: (beratingly) World domination?

Homer: (chuckling nervously) Eh, that might be a typo. (thinking) Mental note: the girl knows too much.

Homer: You can't sell that! Karma can only be portioned out by the cosmos! (slams door)

Apu: He's got me there.

 Homer: Is he (Apu) still out there?

Marge: Yes, he's raking the yard.

Homer: What?! That's your job! If he starts doing Lisa's wood-chopping...!

95 - Lisa vs. Malibu Stacy

  • Grampa ranting about different things on the car ride home from the mall.

 Abe: Why didn't you buy something useful, like storm windows, or a nice pipe organ? I'm thirsty. Eww, what smells like mustard? There sure are a lot of ugly people in your neighborhood. Ooh, look at that one! (Homer parks the car and the other family members quickly pile out) Ow, my glaucoma just got worse. The President is a demmycrat! Hello? I can't unbuckle my seatbelt! HELLO! (honks car horn, despite being strapped in the backseat).

  • Grampa decides to go back into the work force and takes a job at a local Krusty Burger.

    • (Barney then struggles with the NASA scientist for the champagne bottle, eventually taking it from the scientist. He proceeds to down the entire bottle of champagne, barrel through the training facility, and hijack an experimental NASA jetpack. He hums an off-key rendition of the "Charge" song, proceeds to take off, flying for a few feet, before crashing face-first into the roof of a pillow factory, and then getting run over by a marshmallow truck).

 NASA Scientist: I don't understand. That was non-alcoholic champagne.

  • Homer's face changes into Popeye.

 Popeye: I CAN'T STANDS NO MORE.

  • This bit...

 Homer: The only danger in space is if we land on the terrible Planet of the Apes. Wait a minute...Statue of Liberty? THAT WAS OUR PLANET!!!

97 - Homer Loves Flanders

  • This scene keeps topping itself:

 Homer: (yelling at the ceiling) Why do you mock me, o Lord?

Marge: Homer, that's not God. That's just a waffle that Bart tossed up there.

(Marge pries the waffle off of the ceiling. Homer catches it.)

Homer: I know I shouldn't eat Thee, but... (nom) ...Mmm, sacrilicious.

  • Also, Ned drives past Lenny and Carl in the football stadium parking lot. Homer doesn't want to be seen with Ned, so he pushes Ned down to hide him.

 Lenny: Hey look, Homer's got one of those robot cars!

(The car crashes because Ned could not see where he was driving)

Carl: One of those American robot cars.

98 - Bart Gets an Elephant

  • The D Js attempting to dissuade Bart from demanding an elephant:

 Marty: We think we know how your mind works, Bart. So how about this: we pay your principal $10,000 to pull down his pants and keep them down for the rest of the school year, ha ha!

Skinner: (deadpan) I'll do it, Bart.

Bart: Ermmm...no.

Bill: OK, OK...what if we use the $10,000 to, er, surgically transform Skinner here into, er...some kind of a lobster-like creature?

Skinner: Now wait just a minute: that wasn't discussed with me.

  • Also:

 Bart: (on the radio) Where's my elephant?!

Abe: Hey, they're playing The Elephant Song.

Jasper: I like this song. It reminds me of elephants.

    • And right after that, Kent Brockman's news report: "So isn't that what we're all asking in our own lives: 'Where's my elephant?' I know that's what I've been asking."
  • When Lisa blames Mr. Blackheart the ivory dealer for Bart and Stampy's disappearance:

 Homer: He took Bart, too? (runs to window, shaking fist) That wasn't part of the deal, Blackheart! THAT WASN'T PART!!!

  • A peanut factory foreman sees Stampy approaching, prompting the following gem.

 Foreman: This is the moment we feared, people! Many of you thought it would never happen. But I insisted we spend two hours every morning training for it. You all thought I was mad. Many of you requested to be transferred to another peanut factory. But now we... (Stampy bursts through the door and crushes the foreman)

  • Homer hits a deer statue with his car.

 Homer: D'oh!

Lisa: A deer!

Marge: A female deer!

  • Homer is pulled out of the Tar Pits:

 Homer: I'm saved! And I owe it all to this feisty feline....

Lisa: Dad, a feline is a cat.

Homer: Elephant. It's an elephant, honey. And I'm sure he'll make a grand piano.

99 - Burns' Heir

  • The only bump in the road for Smithers' infatuation for his boss:

 Mr. Burns: (sadly) Smithers, I just realized...I have no one to leave my legacy to.

Smithers: (cheerfully) There's me, sir.

Mr. Burns: Oh, don't be ridiculous, Smithers. For your many years of loyalty and hard work, you will have the honor of being buried alive with me. (shows a diorama of the grisly plan)

Smithers: ...Oh... Goody.

  • The deleted scene:

 Mr. Burns: I suggest you leave immediately.

Homer: Or what? You'll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth so when they bark they shoot bees at you? Well go ahead, do your worst!

Mr. Burns: My worst, eh? Smithers, release the robotic Richard Simmons.

(A hidden door opens, and out pops...a robot that looks like Richard Simmons.)

Robo-Simmons: (accosting Homer) Come on, big boy! Shake the butter off those buns!

(A speaker juts out the side of its head, and starts blasting "Shake Your Booty". After about five seconds of this, Homer screams in fear and runs away)

Robo-Simmons: (suddenly appearing next to Smithers, Bart and Burns) Come on, come on, girls! Shake, shake, shake!

Mr. Burns: (shooing Bart away) Smithers, it's out of control!

Smithers: (pulls out a shotgun) I'll take it out, sir!

(Smithers fires a shot at the Robo-Simmons' head, leaving a huge hole...which then morphs back into place T-1000-style. The recording breaks down, then plays at many times the original place, as the robot shakes violently.)

Smithers: His ass is gonna blow!

(They all scream and run back into the house. The robot then explodes, its severed head landing near the gates of Burns Manor.)

    • Arguably the best part of that scene is how the way Mr. Burns says "The robotic Richard Simmons" indicates that he has other versions of Richard Simmons waiting to be unleashed.
  • The non-deleted version is funny, too.

 Mr. Burns: I suggest you leave immediately.

Homer: Or what? You'll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth so when they bark they shoot bees at you? Well go ahead, do your worst!

(Mr. Burns, Smithers, and Bart retreat inside. Homer runs to the door and tries the handle.)

Homer: He locked the door! I'll show him! (He rings the doorbell and runs away.)

    • It's just something about the sheer incredulity in Homer's voice when he says 'He locked the door!', like it's something really unusual.
  • "Kids, you tried your best, and you failed miserably! The lesson is, never try!"
  • "Lisa, stop getting in the way of your wealthy brother's peas!"
  • "That's it! Abusing your family is one thing, but I will not stand idly by and watch you feed a hungry dog! Go to your room!"

100 - Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baadasssss Song

 Apu: Oh, you have got to be kidding sir. First you think of an idea that has already been done. Then you give it a title that nobody could possibly like. Didn't you think this through... it was on the bestseller list for eighteen months! Every magazine cover had... one of the most popular movies of all time, sir! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? I mean, thank you, come again.

  • This scene can possibly lead to a fascination with burly Scotsmen.

 Willie: Lunchlady Doris...have ye got any grease?

Doris: (flatly) Yes. Yes we do.

Willie: (tears off his shirt) THEN GREASE ME UP, WOMAN!

Doris: (still flatly) ...Okey-dokey.

  • Willie: "There's nae an animal alive that can outrun a greased Scotsman!"

101 - The Boy Who Knew Too Much

 Bart: Oh my God, he's like some sort of... non...giving up ...school guy!

102 - Lady Bouvier's Lover

103 - Secrets of a Successful Marriage

  • Carl tells Homer that he's slow. By the time he's processed what he's just heard, hours have passed.

 Homer's Brain: Something said, not good! "Don't yell at Homer?" noo, that's okay... (gasp) Slow! Carl thinks we're Slow.

Homer: HEY! I... huh? (He finds that it's now late night, and everyone is gone. Lenny walks in.)

Lenny: Homer? You're still here? Wow, you are slow!

Homer's Brain: Something said, not good...!

Lenny: Get the hell out!

  • Lisa's encounter with Homer's fake Marge.

 Homer: Good news, Lisa! I don't need your mother anymore. I've created a replacement for her that's superior to her in almost every way!

Lisa: Dad, that's just a plant.

Homer:Lisa! You will respect your new mother! Now, give her a kiss. Kiss her! (Plant falls out treehouse and smashes) Aah! Oh my god oh my god oh my god! All right, let's get our stories straight - she tripped, right?

Lisa: ...Look, I brought you some nice pudding.

  • Homer: That's it! I've found out what I can give you that no one else can: Complete and utter dependance!


Season 6

104 - Bart of Darkness

  • The sequence of Springfield being affected by the heat wave, particularly: Hans Moleman getting set on fire as he's staring at the sun and his Coke bottle glasses concentrate the sun rays and burn him like a magnifying glass does to an ant, Principal Skinner complaining that he's up to his knees in the original cast of M*A*S*H (Skinner was in a wax museum that apparently had no air conditioning or means of keeping the wax figures from melting), and a random guy (who looks like the one who insulted Barney Gumble when Barney was dressed up as the Lullabuy$ baby) punching a hippie who made the mistake of singing John Denver's "Sunshine on My Shoulders" during a heat wave.
  • Bart and Lisa nagging Homer for a swimming pool in their backyard:

 Lisa: Dad, as you know, we've been swimming. And we've developed a taste for it. We both agree that getting our own pool is the way to go. Now before you respond, you must understand that your refusal would result in months and months of...

Bart & Lisa: (rapidly, in unison) Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad? Can we have a pool, Dad?

Bart: Can we- (Lisa stops him)

Homer: I understand. Let us celebrate our agreement with the adding of chocolate to milk.

  • The scene with their first attempt at building the pool resorting in a large barn being built.

 Homer: Alright! Everybody in the pool!

Random Amish Man: Tis a fine barn, but it sure ain't no pool, English.

Homer: D'OH-ETH!

  • The scene where Lisa gets trapped in the pool after everyone gets out.

 Lisa: Huh? Hello? Hey, I'm stuck in here! I gotta think of a way to get out!

Lisa's Brain: Well, well, well. Look who's come crawling back.

  • Homer and Marge are skinny dipping. A police helicopter flies over.

 Chief Wiggum: Do not be alarmed. Continue swimming naked. Aw, c'mon. Continue! C'mon! (Beat) All right, Lou, open fire.

  • After Ned Flanders was mistaken for murdering his wife Maude:

 Homer: There's still the little matter of the whereabouts of your wife!

Maude: Um, I'm right here.

Homer: Oh, I see! So then I guess everything's all wrapped up in a neat little package! (Beat) Really, I mean that. Sorry if it sounded sarcastic!

  • Bart: There was an optics festival and I wasn't informed?! You go now.

105 - Lisa's Rival

  • Homer: (getting stung by bees as they were eating his sugar pile) OW!! AHHHH! They're defending themselves somehow!

106 - Another Simpsons Clip Show

107 - Itchy and Scratchy Land

 Professor Frink: Not to worry, gentlemen. According to My Calculations, the robots will not go insane for at least 24 hours. (robots go insane, checks his sheet again) Oh, I forgot to carry the one.

  • And when the vacation first goes to hell for the Simpson family:

 Marge: (to clerk) I want all five T-shirts to say "Best Family Vacation Ever!".

P.A.: Attention, Marge Simpson! Your son has been arrested!

(everyone gasps)

Female Shopper: I'd be terribly embarrassed if I were that boy's mother...

(Marge groans)

P.A.: Attention, Marge Simpson! We've also arrested your older, balder, fatter son!

(Marge groans more. Lisa and her meet Homer and Bart in their cell.)

Marge: Oh, I'm so embarrassed I wish there was a hole I could just crawl into and die.

Guard: (with German accent) OK, throw her in the hole.

Marge: Oh, please: it was just a figure of speech!

  • As Homer and Marge go to a 70s nostalgia bar, Marge notes how the bartender looks like John Travolta. The bartender, who is indeed Travolta, mutters "Yeah, 'looks like'." Even funnier considering he would make his comeback with Pulp Fiction right around the same time this episode originally aired.
  • Homer's attempt to imitate Bart channeling his inner movie action hero during the scene where the Simpson family are left to deal with an army of killer Itchy & Scratchy robots.

 Homer: Die bad robots! Die! (laughs) With a dry, cool wit like that, I could be an action hero.

  • When Bart and Lisa are checking things out at the gift shop:

 Bart: Cool...personalized plates! "Barclay"..."Barry"..."Bert"..."Bort"? Aw, come on. "Bort"?

Boy: Mommy, mommy! Buy me a license plate.

Mother: No. Come along, Bort.

Man:: Are you talking to me?

Mother: No, my son is also named Bort.

108 - Sideshow Bob Roberts

  • When the local Republicans gather to select a new mayoral candidate:

 Barlow: If you'll just open that door you'll see the next mayor of Springfield!

(The door opens to reveal a water cooler; everyone applauds. The cooler bubbles)

Senator: What'd it say?

Barlow: No, no, no, Bob. Bob, come in!

Sideshow Bob: A fine "Mahoke" to you all.

Dr. Hibbert: Why, he's even better!

Ranier: I agree. I like the human touch.

  • Bart has just been kicked out of Sideshow Bob's limo when he runs for mayor. Next, Homer gets kicked out of a car with the Archie gang - "Duhh stay outta Riverdale!". Noodle incidentary at it's finest!
    • Followed up with later in the episode:

 Lisa: This is so cool, Bart. We're just like Woodward and Bernstein.

Bart: Yeah, except their dad wasn't waiting in the car reading Archie comics.

Homer: (reading the comic and grumbling) Lousy Riverdale punks. Think they're too good for me.

 Sideshow Bob: What do you want?

Lisa: I want the truth!

Bob: You want the truth? You can't handle the truth! No truth-handler, you! I deride your truth-handling abilities!

  • And let's not forget the stupidity of the Springfield voters:
    • Homer is shown inside voting booth, reading a pamphlet.

 Homer: Hmm, I don't approve of his Bart killing policy. But I do approve of his Selma killing policy. (pulls lever)

    • After him there's a cut to Krusty in the voting booth.

 Krusty: He did frame me for armed robbery, but man, I'm aching for that upper-class tax cut. (pulls lever)

  • Sideshow Bob's political satire speech in court.

 Bob: You need me, Springfield! Your guilty consciences may force you to vote Democratic, but secretly you yearn for a cold-hearted Republican who’ll cut taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king! That's why I did this! To protect you from yourselves!

    • "No child has ever meddled with the Republican party and lived to tell about it.

109 - Treehouse of Horror V

  • From the first segment "The Shinning":[3]
    • The beginning, as the Simpson family is driving to Mr. Burns' mansion:

 (title card says "Tuesday", then cut to the family in the car)

Homer: Well, it's been a long trip, but we're almost there!

Marge: Homer, did you remember to lock the front door of the house?

Homer: D'oh!

(cut to title card that says "Wednesday", then back to the family)

Homer: Well, it's been two long trips, but we're almost there again!

Marge: Homer, when you locked the front door, did you remember to lock the back door?

Homer: D'oh-d'oh!

(cut to title card that says "Thursday", then back to the now tired family, only this time, Grandpa's missing.)

Lisa: (gasps) Oh no! We left Grandpa back at the gas station! (dead silence) What about Grandpa?

 Homer: (eerily calm) So, what do you think, Marge? All I need is a title. I was thinking of something along the lines of "No TV and no beer make Homer" something something.

Marge: (nervous) Go crazy?

Homer: (hysterically) Don't mind if I do!

      • The entire montage of Homer going crazy, making a scary face, seeing it in a mirror, getting scared, screaming and falling down the steps, becoming unconscious. Then Marge locks him in the food pantry.
      • Homer: "Can't murder now. Eating."
    • And later:

 (Homer chops through a door with an ax)

Homer: Heeeere's Johnny! (the camera pulls back to reveal an empty room) D'oh!

(Homer chops through a second door)

Homer: Daaaaavid Letterman!

Abe Simpson: Hi David, I'm Grampa!

Homer: D'oh!

(Homer chops through a third door)

Homer: (holding a ticking stopwatch) I'm Mike Wallace, I'm Morley Safer, and I'm Ed Bradley. All this and Andy Rooney tonight on Sixty Minutes!

Family: Aah!

    • Groundskeeper Willie dies from being axed in the back by psychopathic Homer.

 Willie: Ack! Is that the best you can do? (collapses to the floor)

    • Homer upon seeing the hand held TV.

 Homer: Television! Teacher! Mother! Secret lover... Urge to kill fading...fading...fading...RISING!...fading...fading...gone.

      • At the end, when the family becomes frozen from sitting in the cold snow.

 Homer: URGE TO KILL RISING.

      • What really sells this is all the dinosaurs are literally standing in a perfect line, dying one after another as Homer looks on.
    • No thanks to his love of donuts, Homer paradoxically threw away paradise.

 (Homer arrives back in the present with the time machine toaster. The house has been transformed into a luxurious estate.)

Lisa: Are we taking the new Lexus to Aunt Patty and Selma's funeral today?

Homer: Hmm. Fabulous house, well-behaved kids, sisters-in-law dead, luxury sedan. Woohoo! I hit the jackpot! (he sits down at the table, trying to sound like a rich gentleman) Marge, dear, would you kindly pass me a donut?

Marge: Donut? What's a donut?

(Homer screams like a crazy man and runs back to the time machine. Marge looks out the window and sees donuts falling from the sky.)

Marge: (nonchalantly) Hmph. It's raining again.

      • And immediately afterwards, Homer's back in prehistoric times:

 Homer: Don't touch anything?! I'll touch whatever I feel like! (And he begins beating every animal and tree with a wooden club. He stomps on one small animal, but the topper is when he punches a huge prehistoric mosquito before beating it with his club.)

    • Also, the (second) death of Groundskeeper Willie in a Sound of Thunder spoof where Maggie axes him in the back, pulls her pacifier out, and intones in the deep, dark voice of James Earl Jones.

 Maggie: This is indeed a disturbing universe.

 Willie: Ach, I'm really bad at this!

110 - Bart's Girlfriend

  • After Jessica and Bart (unwillingly) pull the Springfield Elementary fire alarm, panic ensues, though Groundskeeper Willie has one concern:

 Willie: If I don' save the wee tur'les, who will?! (He kicks open a door to a lab and rushes in. Moments later, he runs back out, with turtles biting him all over) Gah! Save me from the wee tur'les! They were too quick for me!

  • Also this conversation:

 Marge: I guess we could get more involved in Bart's activities, but then I'd be afraid of smothering him.

Homer: Yeah, and then we'd get the chair.

Marge: That's not what I meant.

Homer: It was, Marge. Admit it.

111 - Lisa On Ice

  • Chief Wiggum: We won! We won! But uh, since I bet on the other team, we won't be going out for pizza.
  • Lisa worries that failing gym is going to haunt her:

 (In the future, Lisa is being inaugurated in as President of the United States.)

Supreme Court Justice: I now pronounce you President of these United --

Reporter: Stop the inauguration! I just discovered our President-Elect got an F in second grade gym class!

(Crowd gasps; Lisa is handcuffed.)

Justice: (to Lisa) In that case, I sentence you to a lifetime of horror on Monster Island! Don't worry, it's just a name.

(later, Lisa and others are chased by fire-breathing monsters)

Lisa: He said it was just a name!

Man: What he meant is that Monster Island is actually a peninsula!

  • Jimbo Jones: It's a lucky coincidence you happen to be your sister's brother!
  • Later, Lisa's success in hockey begins to make Bart jealous.

 Bart: (sarcastically) Hello, Queen Lisa.

Lisa: Bart! What are you doing in my room?

Bart: Lisa, certain differences, rivalries, if you will, have come up between us. At first I thought we could talk it over like civilized people. But instead, I just ripped the head off Mr. Honeybunny! (Holds up a headless stuffed rabbit in one hand, its head in the other hand.)

Lisa: Bart, that was your cherished childhood toy.

Bart: Aah! Mr. Honeybunny! (tries to repair it, kisses it numerous times)

Homer: (from downstairs) Quiet down, Bart!

Lisa: Bart, just get outta here.

Bart: Hey: it's a free country. You get out.

Lisa: That doesn't make sense.

Bart: I know you are, but what am I?

Lisa: Get out, get out!

Bart: OK, but on my way, I'm going to be doing this: (windmills arms) If you get hit, it's your own fault.

Lisa: OK, then I'm going to start kicking air like this. (kicks) And if any part of you should fill that air, (kicks) it's your own fault.

(They walk towards each other, then start fighting. In the kitchen, Marge overhears Bart and Lisa's yells as she's taking a pie out of the oven.)

Marge: Oh, I better go check that out. (to Homer) Now Homer, don't you eat this pie!

Homer: Okay... (Marge leaves) All right, pie, I'm just going to do this. (chomps air) And if you get eaten, it's your own fault! (walks towards pie, chomping air, and hits head on range head) Ow! Oh, my... aw, to hell with this. (grabs pie, eats it)

  • Later, the scene where Homer asks Marge which kid she likes best and says "You can't possibly like Maggie best! What has she ever done? Nothing for nobody!" At which point Maggie jumps up to intercept a beer bottle flying at Homer's head.

112 - Homer Badman

  • Apu: I have asked you nicely to stop mangling my merchandise. I now have no choice but to...ask you nicely again.
  • Homer and Marge's daring escape from the candy convention.
    • The highlight is when Homer mixes a can of cola with some Pop Rocks and uses it like a grenade to stop the candy conventioneers from advancing, even getting in a badass one-liner: "SEE YOU IN HELL, CANDY BOYS!" This is then of course, followed by Homer dramatically jumping away from the explosion.
  • As Homer gets out of the shower, he sees a helicopter hovering outside his bathroom window, causing him to shriek and fall over, getting wrapped in his shower curtain. Cue it being shown on the T.V.:

 Newsman: Simpson scandal update: Homer sleeps nude in an oxygen tent, which he believes gives him sexual powers!

Homer: Hey, that's a half-truth!

  • Homer needs help to clear his name.

 Homer: Help me, God! (phone rings and Homer answers) ...Hello?

Deep Voice: Hello Homer. This is God...frey Jones from the TV magazine show "Rock Bottom".

  • Homer's "Under the Sea" parody sequence, during which he happily gorges himself on the friendly, dancing sea creatures.

 Marge: That's your solution to everything. Move under the sea. It's not gonna happen.

Homer: Not with that attitude.

  • The edited interview with the rapidly changing clock.
    • The best part has to be the end of the interview, as we're shown a clearly freeze-framed image of Homer, VCR artifacts and all, looking like a buffoon and "attacking" Godfrey Jones, which is then followed by a quick voiceover, "Dramatization, may not have happened."
  • The gripping portrayal in Homer S.: Portrait of an Ass-Grabber.
  • Some of Rock Bottom's other interviews:

 Godfrey Jones: Tonight, on "Rock Bottom", we investigate a sex farm for sex hookers.

(cut to a farmer being interviewed)

Farmer: I keep telling you, I only grow sorghum here.

Interviewer: Uh huh. And where are the hookers?

Farmer: Round back... oops.

113 - Grampa vs. Sexual Inadequacy

114 - Fear of Flying

 Guy: Greetings, good men. Might I trouble you for a drink?

Moe: Oh, get out of here, Homer.

Guy: Homer? Who is Homer? My name is Guy Incognito.

(camera pans outside as he's beaten to a crap and thrown out. The real Homer passes by.)

Homer: Oh my God! This man is my exact double- Oh my God! That dog has a fluffy tail! Here Puff, here Puff!

  • After coming home from the airport, when Marge decided to get off the airplane.

 Homer: Permit me to solve the mystery: your mother has a fear of flying!

Bart: So much for the days when I could say, "At least my mother's normal."

Marge: Everyone has a fear of something.

Homer: (smugly) Not everyone.

Marge: Sock puppets!

Homer: (panicked) Where!? Where?! AAAUGHH! (Runs offscreen)

  • Homer: That's just the engine powering up... that's just the engine struggling... that's just a carp swimming around your ankles.

115 - Homer the Great

  • Homer wants to find out what Lenny and Carl are doing without him being involved and he tells Marge.

 Marge: Oh, Homer, don't start stalking people again. It's so illegal. Remember when you were stalking Charles Kuralt because you thought he dug up your garden?

Homer: Well, something did!

Marge: I don't want you stalking anyone tonight.

Homer: Oh, OK, have it your own way, Marge. I'll be back in a minute. (gets up) I'm... going outside. To... stalk... Lenny and Carl. (beat) D'oh!

 All: Who controls the British crown? Who keeps the metric system down? We do! We do!

Carl: Who leaves Atlantis off the maps?

Lenny: Who keeps the Martians under wraps?

Alien: We do! We do!

All: Who holds back the electric car? Who makes Steve Guttenberg a star? We do! We do!

Skinner: Who robs cavefish of their sight?

Homer: Who rigs every Oscar night?

All: We do! We do!

  • Number One: "Now let's all get drunk and play ping-pong!"

116 - And Maggie Makes Three

  • Other than a heartwarming ending, it has this:

 Marge: I've got to tell Homer about this baby in just the right way and at just the right time. Until then, please, keep this to yourselves.

Patty: Oh, if he found out now, it would probably destroy him, huh?

Marge: Oh, yes.

Patty & Selma: Gotta go!

Marge: Wait a minute! Wait, I know that look. Now promise you won't tell Homer.

Selma: Oh, we promise we won't tell...Homer.

(At their apartment, they rush to the phonebook, and open it to page one)

Patty: Hello, is this A. Aaronson? It might interest to you to know that Marge Simpson is pregnant, again.

(The scene fades away, looks like a lot of time passed, phonebook on last page.)

Patty: (on the phone) Just thought you'd like to know, Mr. Zykowski. There. Aaronson and Zykowski are the two biggest gossips in town. In an hour, everyone will know.

  • Indeed, soon everyone knows except Homer, who's going to his new job at the bowling alley:

 Homer: Ah, another perfect day in my perfect life with my perfect job.

Chief Wiggum: Hey, just heard the news over the squawk box. That's nice work, Homer.

Homer: Thank you, thank you very much. It is nice work.

Apu: Oh, Mr. Simpson, I have just heard about the little bundle of joy. Congratulations, sir!

Homer: It's true, the bundle is little, but I'm not in it for the money.

Moe: Hey, Homer! Way to get Marge pregnant.

Homer: This is getting very abstract, but thank you: I do enjoy working at the bowling alley.

  • When he arrives home, people are just throwing Marge a baby shower:

 Homer: Hey, it's me. It's hell out there! Hey, wait a minute. What are all these presents? It looks like you're... showering Marge with gifts. Hmm...with little, tiny baby-sized gifts. Well, I'll be in the tub.

Maude: By the way, congratulations on your new job, Homer.

Homer: New job? ...Marge is pregnant?! Noooooo!

117 - Bart's Comet

118 - Homie the Clown

  • Krusty: Put $5,000 on the Lakers. Hire Kenny G. to play for me in "The Elevator". My house is dirty, buy me a clean one.
  • Krusty's response to his advisor's suggestion of opening a clown college.

 Krusty: Forget it. I'll just cut back on the condor egg omlettes. Mmm, a couple of those would be tasty right now.

 Homer: That's it! You people have stood in my way long enough. I'm going to clown college! (walks out the front door)

Bart: I don't think any of us expected him to say that.

 Kid: It's the Krusty-Burglar!

Homer: Oh, my God! He's stealing all the burgers! Why you little...

(Homer immediately starts beating the crap out of the Krusty-Burglar, as the kids in attendance watch in horror.)

Kid: (sobbing) Stop! Stop! He's already dead!

(Two guards have to drag Homer away)

Announcer: Uh, Krusty the Clown, everybody?

(scattered applause from the kids)

Krusty-Burglar: (in Slavic accent) Please look at my medical alert bracelet... (groans)

119 - Bart vs. Australia

120 - Homer vs. Patty and Selma

121 - A Star Is Burns

  • Principal Skinner about to be burned at the stake:

 Skinner: I'm telling you people, the Earth revolves around the Sun!

Abe: Burn him! (He starts to light Principal Skinner on fire)

Photographer: (takes a picture) What a story!

Abe: (chasing the photographer) You've stolen my soul!

  • When Mr. Burns is attempting to pick who gets to play him in a biopic, we see a sequence where several people including William Shatner and Hannibal Lecter give their try with Burns's "Excellent" Catch Phrase. Then comes Homer...

 Homer: Exactly.....heheheh.....D'OH!

  • During the film judges' meeting after all the films were presented:

 Jay Sherman: How can you vote for Burns' movie?

  • A glimpse from "McBain: Let's Get Silly!":

(McBain pulls out a machine gun from his jacket and starts firing at the audience.)

  • Rainier Wolfcastle talk about the movie in interview with Jay Sherman:

 Wolfcastle: The film is just me in front of a brick wall for an hour and a half. It cost $80 million.

  • From Barney's movie Pukahontas, a funny exchange from a mostly sad biopic:

 Bart in Voice #1: What do you mean the bank is out of money!?

(Crowd starts going crazy)

Bank Guy: I don't have your money here! It's in....Bill's house...And...Fred's house!

Moe Szyslak: (Turns to guy next to him) Hey, what the hell are you doing with my money in your house Fred? (Punches Fred, setting off a huge fight)

  • Also this moment in Homer and Marge's bedroom:

 Marge: There's something about flying a kite at night that's so unwholesome.

Bart: Hello, mother dear.

  • Jasper: Talking outta turn... That's a paddlin'. Lookin' out the window... That's a paddlin'. Staring at my sandals... That's a paddlin'. Paddlin' the school canoe... OOOH, you better BELIEVE that's a paddlin'.
  • During the PTA Conference:

 Man: The PTA has disbanded! Huh! HUH! AARGH! (jumps out window)

Ned Flanders: No, the PTA has not disbanded. (Same man jumps back in and sits down)

  • The "purple monkey dishwasher" scene from this episode never fails to make laughter.

 Bart: Now for Operation Strike-Make-Go-Longer. (to teacher) You know, I heard Skinner say the teachers will crack any minute.

(The teachers whisper it through the line)

Teacher: (to Edna) Skinner said the teachers will crack any minute purple money dishwasher.

Krusty: And I contend that those tourists were decapitated before they entered the Krustyland House of Knives. Next question?

Woman: What about that little boy who got appendicitis from eating your cereal?

Krusty: To prove that this metal O is harmless, I will personally eat one. (takes a mouthful) See? There's nothing (starts screaming and writhing) Oh, boy! This thing is shredding my insides!

Sideshow Mel: Er, Krusty, that wasn't the metal one, that was a regular Krusty-O.

 Mr. Burns: Who the devil are you?

Season 7

129 - Who Shot Mr. Burns? Part 2

  • Tito Puente's Slanderous Mambo.
  • Smithers' dream that Mr. Burns is alive, in his shower, and part of a campy 1960s crime show called Speedway Squad (until Smithers wakes up and realizes that he was dreaming).
  • Skinner's alibi for not shooting Mr. Burns. While he was planning to attack Mr. Burns himself after the meeting, he was in the men's room putting on camoflage make-up at the time of the shooting. In the flashback, we see that Skinner has mixed up his camoflage make-up with his mother's make-up, noticing too little too late. Then Superintendent Chalmers walks in...

 Flashback Chalmers: Oh, I'm terribly sorry, ma'am--

Flashback Skinner: Superintendent Chalmers!

Flashback Chalmers: (Realizes it's Skinner) ...Oh my God...

Chief Wiggum: So, Chalmers can vouch for your whereabouts?

Skinner: Oh, yes. But anything else he says is a filthy lie.

 Eddie: Did you hold a grudge against Montgomery Burns?

Moe: No! (buzz) All right, maybe I did. But I didn't shoot him. (ding)

Eddie: Checks out. OK, sir, you're free to go.

Moe: Good, 'cause I got a hot date tonight. (buzz) A date. (buzz) Dinner with friends. (buzz) Dinner alone. (buzz) Watching TV alone. (buzz) All right! I'm going to sit at home and ogle the ladies in the Victoria's Secret catalog. (buzz) Sears catalog. (ding) Now would you unhook this already, please? I don'tdeserve this kind of shabby treatment! (buzz)

130 - Radioactive Man

  • This hilarious bit:

 Skinner: (over the PA system) Students, I have an announcement. One of your favorite comic book heroes, Radio Man---

Nelson: Radioactive Man, stupid!

Skinner: ...Strange, I shouldn't have been able to hear that.

  • The entirety of the campy 1970s Radioactive Man show (which the director does not want the movie to be like).
    • The best part has to be the bit where everyone, including the villains start randomly dancing, only for them to be joined by random women, who also start dancing.
  • "I keep telling you! He's seventy-three years old, and he's dead!"
  • My eyes! The goggles do nothing!"
  • When the director is flipping through the magazine, we see all these full page ads for Film Utah, Film New York, etc and then they suddenly stop at the ad that says "Flim Springfield" "This place must be hot! They don't need a big ad or even correct spelling!"
  • The running gag with people's hats flying off in moments of surprise - thanks to malfunctioning air conditioners.

131 - Home Sweet Homediddly-Dum-Doodily

  • Just the way Homer sounds when he screams "Why you COTTIN PICKIN...!" and strangles Cletus.
  • Homer and Marge are trying to find Ned Flanders, who's about to baptize their kids:

 Marge: Where are we going? Where are we going?

Homer: OK, OK, don't panic. To find Flanders, I just have to think like Flanders! (thinking) I'm a big four-eyed lame-o, and I wear the same stupid sweater every day and -- (aloud) The Springfield River![4]

Lisa: No.

Homer: Ham?

Lisa: No.

Homer: Pork chops?

Lisa: Dad, those all come from the same animal!

Homer: (sarcastically) Yeah right, Lisa, a wonderful, magical animal!

  • "You don't make friends with salad, you don't make friends with salad."
  • The entirety of the pro-meat propaganda filmstrip.

 Troy McClure"Don't kid yourself Jimmy. If a cow ever got the chance he'd eat you and everyone you care about."

    • Just the image of a shark leaping out of the water to attack a gorilla.
  • Homer chases the runaway pig as it rolls through some bushes:

 Homer: It's just a little dirty! It's still good, it's still good!

(The pig ends up in the river)

Homer: It's just a little slimy! It's still good, it's still good!

(The pig gets stuck in the dam and is blown away by the water pressure)

Homer: It's just a little airborne! It's still good, it's still good!

Bart: It's gone.

Homer: I know. (Scene cut to the Nuclear Power Plant)

Mr. Burns: You know Smithers, I think I'll donate $1 million to the local orphanage... when pigs fly!

(Smithers and him both laugh, then the pig goes flying past the window)

Smithers: Will you be donating that money now, sir?

Mr. Burns: No, I'd still prefer not.

134 - Treehouse of Horror VI

  • From the first segment "Attack of the 50-Foot Eyesores":
    • Chief Wiggum mistakenly shoots at an absurdly tall basketball player, thinking him to be one of the giant advertising characters come to life.

Lou: Um....Chief, that wasn't a monster. That was the captain of the high school football team.

Wiggum: Um, yeah, well, he was turning into a monster. Yeah.

  • From the second segment "Nightmare on Evergreen Terrace":
    • The end of the short has Willy and his hilariously pitiful attempt to scare Bart and Lisa.
  • From the third segment "Homer3":

135 - King-Size Homer

  • Dr. Hibbert refuses to take part in Homer's personal weight-gain plan.

 Homer: Could you recommend a doctor that will?

Dr. Hibbert: ...Yes. (scene cut)

Dr. Riviera: Hi, everybody!

Bart & Homer: Hi, Dr. Nick!

  • Homer mocking traffic as he stays home from work, due to experimental monkeys taking over the freeway: "Gas, brake, honk! Gas, brake, honk! Honk, honk, punch! Gas, gas, gas!"
  • And from the end of that episode:

 Lisa: I think it's ironic that Dad saved the day while a slimmer man would have fallen to his death.

Bart: And I think it's ironic that for once Dad's butt prevented the release of toxic gas-

Marge: BART!

  • And then there's:

 Homer: Mmm... I can feel three kinds of softness.

Lisa: Dad, what are you doing down there?

Homer: Washing my fat guy hat, honey.

136 - Mother Simpson

  • After Homer uses a dummy to fake his own death:

 Mr. Burns: (surprisingly sadly) Smithers, who was that corpse?

Smithers: (increasingly sad and teary) That was... Homer Simpson, sir... one of the finest, bravest men ever to grace Sector 7-G! (calm and bureaucratic again) I'll mark him off the list.

  • When Homer visits (what he has believed for a long time to be) his mother's "grave":

 Homer: Walt Whitman?! Aargh! Damn! You! Walt! Freaking! Whitman! Leaves of Grass, my ass!

  • Later, Mr. Burns attempts to storm the Simpson home in a tank in order to arrest Homer's mother Mona, who sabotaged his chemical lab in The Sixties. Before doing so, he puts in a tape of "Ride of the Valkyries"...only for it to cut to "Waterloo" by ABBA after a few seconds (Smithers accidentally taped over it). The icing on this piece of cake is the look on Burns' face when his moment is ruined.
    • It was also oddly hilarious to watch them storm the house to that music anyway.
  • Abe's attempt at stalling the feds was gold.

 Abe: All right, I admit it: I am the Lindbergh baby. Waah! Waah! Goo goo. I miss my fly-fly dada.

Friday: Are you trying to stall us, or are you just senile?

Abe: A little from column A, a little from column B.

 Bart: Mom, my slingshot doesn't fit in these pockets. And these shorts leave nothing to the imagination. These uniforms suck!

Marge: Bart! Where do you pick up words like that?

Homer: (nearby, using the phone) Yeah, Moe, that team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked!

Marge: HOMER! Watch your mouth!

Homer: Aw, I gotta go, my damn wiener kids are listening.

141 - Two Bad Neighbors

142 - Scences from the Class Struggle in Springfield

143 - Bart the Fink

144 - Lisa the Iconoclast

145 - Homer the Smithers

  • Without a doubt, the best display of Homer's bad cooking can be found as the page image for Epic Fail: Homer pours some cereal for Mr. Burns' breakfast. The cereal catches fire.
  • Smithers looks for the worst employee at the nuclear power plant to replace him while he goes on vacation, so that Burns will be awfully grateful when Smithers is back:

 Smithers: (typing into computer) Incompetent... (screen shows "714 matches") 714 names! Better be more specific. (types some more) Lazy, clumsy, dimwitted, monstrously ugly. (screen shows "714 matches" again) Ah, nuts to this, I'll just get Homer Simpson.

  • After Mr. Burns is punched in the face by Homer, he decides to call Smithers by dialing his name on the phone (764-84377 spells S-M-I-T-H-E-R-S). [5] He winds up calling Moe Szyslak at his bar.

 Moe: (the phone rings and he answers) Moe's Tavern.

Mr. Burns: (on the other end) I'm looking for a Mr. Smithers. First name Waylon.

(Moe thinks it's another prank phone call and catches on early)

Moe: Ohhhhhh. So you're looking for a Mr. Smithers, eh? First name Waylon, is it? Listen to me you! When I catch you, I'm gonna pull out your eyes and shove 'em down your pants, so you can watch me kick the crap outta you, OK!? Then I'm gonna use your tongue to paint my boat!

  • When Lisa has to explain Bart's plight to Homer:

 Lisa: (rapidly) Bart rented a car with a phony driver's license and drove Martin, Milhouse, and Nelson to week out in Knoxville and their car got crushed and they're out of money and they can't come back home and Bart's working as a courier and he just got back from Hong Kong!

Homer: (Face reddens for a second, then returns to normal. Then, in a eerily calm tone) Yes, that's a real pickle. Excuse me for a moment.

(Homer puts on a radiation suit and rages incomprehensibly for a few seconds. He then returns to Lisa.)

Homer: (calm again) I have thought this through. I will send Bart the money to fly home, and then I will murder him.

  • The phone calls Marge keeps answering before the credits roll.

 (phone rings)

Marge: Hello? Principal Skinner? No. Bart was never in Hong Kong. Good night.

(phone rings)

Marge: Hello? Tennessee state police! No. My son's car isn't parked under the sun sphere. I don't know where to begin telling you what's wrong with that. Good night.

(phone rings)

Marge: Hello? No. Bart is not available to deliver a human kidney to Amsterdam. (slams phone down) Homer, are you laughing at me?

Skinner: Yes.

Chalmers: May I see it?

Skinner: Oh, erm... No.

Agnes: Seymour! The house is on fire!

Skinner: No, mother! It's just the northern lights!

  • The scene where Nelson Muntz gets payback by a very tall man and has to walk before his car, with his pants down, and has to wave and blowkiss at people. Everybody watching laughs at Nelson in the same way he normally does to them.

Fernando Vidal: D'oh! Not again!

Mr. Burns: (dressed as Marge) I'm getting fed up with these constant failures.

(Smithers enters, dressed as Bart)

Smithers: I'll be in the car dudes.

  • Assassination attempt #3.

 Fernando Vidal: There is one more way to kill a man, but it is as intricate and precise as a well-played game of chess.

(Bursts into retirement home with machine gun and starts randomly firing away)

Jasper: Was that me or was that you?

(Abe runs away screaming from the gunfire, and into next room)

Abe: Nurse! Someone's trying to kill me!

(Cypress Hill begin to perform 'Insane in the Membrane' with the orchestra backing)

Homer: Thank you, come again!

  • Just about anything Hank Scorpio says or does:
    • Hank introduces himself to the family at their new house.

 Marge: Mr. Scorpio, this house is almost too good for us. I keep expecting to get the bum's rush.

Hank: We don't have bums in our town, Marge, and if we did they wouldn't rush; they'd be allowed to go at their own pace.

    • Homer leaning about his new job from Hank.

 Hank: The key to motivation is trust. Let me show you what I mean. I want you to close your eyes and fall backwards, and I'll catch you. That's gonna show you what trust is all about. Ready?

Hank: Three... Two... (phone rings) One second... (he answers it) Hello?

(two orderlies grab Ned and drag him away)

Ned: Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • A therapist, Dr. Foster tries to get Ned Flanders to express his repressed anger, so he makes Homer read insults to Ned from cue cards. The window separating the two guys rolls down.

Ned: Well howdy, Homer! (window rolls up) Thanks for dropping by!

Dr. Foster: Hmm. He's not responding. Proceed to level 2 antagonism. (the window rolls down again)

Homer: Past instances in which I professed to like you were fraudulent.

Ned: Oh, well, I'll just have to try harder.

Dr. Foster: Ah, he's still repressing. Maximum hostility factor.

163 - The Springfield Files

 Nimoy: Hello. I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is: No.

  • Just before his encounter with the alien, Homer comes across a giant billboard reading "DIE". He screams. A wind blows a tree aside, revealing that it said "DIET". He screams louder. After Homer first sees the alien who turns out to be a heavily drugged Mr. Burns, he runs from the alien and manages to spell out "Yahhhh!" as he runs through the grass, even leaping to get the exclamation mark down.
  • Chief Wiggum: I'll just type it up on my invisible typewriter... (First in response to Homer's alien sighting, then to an arsonist turning himself in.)

Homer: Yes.

(The polygraph abruptly explodes upon Homer's answer being registered)

  • The police line up scene featuring nothing but famous famous aliens, including Marvin The Martian, Gort, ALF, Chewbacca and Kang(or is it Kodos?) from the series proper is a neat little visual gag.
    • And the commentary reveals they didn't bother getting the copyright for any of them, calling it the most illegal shot in animation history. Though the only complaint they got was from the creator of ALF, who was only upset that he didn't get to do the voice.
  • "HUMAN BLIMP SEES FLYING SAUCER"
  • Scully rolling her eyes as Mulder goes on yet another rant about the paranormal, followed by him finishing long after everyone is gone.
  • And the part where Moe and two Mexican workers are trying to get the killer whale they kidnapped back to Sea World.

Smithers: 45 seconds.

Mr. Burns: And how long has it been?

Smithers: I don't know sir. This stopwatch won't go past 15 minutes.

    • Keep in mind that not one person has gotten out yet.
    • Then Homer gets out first, and barricades the rest in by blocking the door.

 Homer: I think I won, Mr. Burns!

  • Later, as Homer and Mr. Burns are trapped inside the snowed-in cabin:

 Mr. Burns: I'll kill you, you bloated museum of treachery!

Homer: You and What Army?? (he imagines Nazi snowmen behind Mr. Burns and shrieks) Stand back! I have powers! Uh, political powers!

(Mr. Burns imagines political figures including Mahatma Gandhi and Abraham Lincoln)

  • If you cut every corner there'll be more time for play, it's the American way!
  • Bart's method of cutting costs.

 Bart: And I'll take up smoking and give that up!

Homer: Good for you, son. Giving up smoking is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do. Have a dollar.

Lisa: But he didn't DO anything!

Homer: Didn't he, Lisa? Didn't he? Hey, wait a minute, HE DIDN'T! (Homer snatches the dollar out of Bart's hands)

167 - The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show

  • The Itchy & Scratchy writers seemed to have taken Homer's suggestion to not kill Poochie off to heart....or have they?

 Itchy: Hi, Poochie. You look like you've got something to say. Do you?

Poochie: Yes, I certainly do! (his voice changes to Roger Meyers, Jr.) I have to go now. My planet needs me.

(The cel with Poochie on it is crudely moved upwards, as it then cuts to a title card reading, "Note: Poochie died on the way back to his home planet.)

168 - Homer's Phobia

  • Homer, in a desperate attempt to either scare his son straight or show him what it means to be a real man's man, takes his son to a tour of a steel mill. But then it falls apart when the steel mill is staffed by every Hard Gay and Camp Gay stereotype, both of which are cranked Up to Eleven.
    • "Hot stuff comin' through!"

 'Bart: Dad...why did you bring me to a gay steel mill?

Homer: (breaking down sobbing) I don't know! You're all sick!

Random Mill Worker: Oh, be nice. (break whistle blows)

Homer: Wh-what's going on?

Foreman: Hey...We work hard, We play hard.

(The steel mill then turns into a stereotypical gay nightclub, complete with smoke machines, flashing lights, and man dancing in front of a slow-moving fan while his and the fan's shadows are cast all about.)

  • Earlier, he makes him sit in front of a huge billboard ad for cigarettes showing two sexy girls pillowfighting:

 Homer: Well, it's been two hours. How do you feel?

Bart: I don't know. I kind of want a cigarette.

  • This line.

 Homer: I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals FUH-LAMING!

169 - Brother from Another Series

  • Lisa beliving that stopping Cecil, Sideshow Bob's brother, cannot be done.

 Lisa: Oh, it's hopeless, utterly, utterly hopeless.

Sideshow Bob: Oh, I see. When it's one of my evil schemes, you can't foil it fast enough, but when Cecil tries to kill you, it's "hopeless, utterly, utterly hopeless!"

  • This moment after Cecil's plan failed.

 Chief Wiggum: Well that's some good work, Lou. You'll make Sergeant for this.

Lou: Uh... I already am Sergeant, Chief.

Chief Wiggum: Perhaps you are - But I say Bob goes back to jail!

Sideshow Bob: But surely... I mean-- I caught Cecil!?

Chief Wiggum: Maybe so. But Lou here says you were resisting arrest.

Lou: No, I didn't, Chief.

Chief Wiggum: Quiet, Lou - or I will bust you down to Sergeant so fast, it'll make your head spin!

170 - My Sister, My Sitter

171 - Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment

  • When Prohibition is declared in Springfield, Homer comes up with a surprisingly clever workaround. He garners a large amount of money, which impresses Marge. Naturally, Lisa calls Homer out for his actions. The response that she gets is a simultaneous "Go to Your Room, Lisa!" from Homer, Marge, and Bart, complete with pointing upstairs.
  • Rex Banner looks over Springfield, determinted to stop the alcohol bootlegging.

 Rex Banner: You're out there somewhere Beer Baron. And I'll find you.

Homer: (faint shout from across the town) No you won't!

Rex Banner: Yes I will!

Homer: (faint again) ... Won't!

  • Homer runs out of liquor and decides to brew his own.

 Marge: What on earth happened down there?

Homer: Uh, nothing, Marge. I think it must have been that bean I had for dinner!

Homer: Kamboom! Blam! Oh, excuse me again, dear.

Marge: Homer, there's no point in pretending you're making those noises. Your homemade liquor is exploding again.

Homer: What's that, dear? Kablamo!

Marge: You made a little money, and had the fun of being a wanted criminal; why not give it up, while you're ahead?

Homer: Boom.

    • Then Homer goes downstairs and there's another explosion. A few seconds later he runs outside on fire, rolls around screaming until the fire is out, then stands up and calmly says "I've thought about what you said, honey, and I've decided to quit."
  • Homer's toast after the Prohibition law was repealed.

 Homer: To alcohol! The cause of... and solution to... all of life's problems!

172 - Grade School Confidential

  • A moment that could be controversial.

 Maude Flanders: We're talking about S-E-X! In front of the C-H-I-L-D-R-E-N!

Krusty: Sex Cauldron?! I thought they closed that place down!

    • In the Latin American dub, it's "children" instead of "cauldron", making Krusty not only dumb but also, possibly, a pedophile; it's still hilarious but slightly creepier.

173 - The Canine Mutiny

174 - The Old Man and the Lisa

  • Mr. Burns is the guest speaker at Lisa's "Junior Achievers" club:

 Lisa: Does your plant have a recycling program?

Mr. Burns: (confused) "Re-cy-cling"? (He turns his mental dictionary to "R", and searches but doesn't find "recycle" anywhere) I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that term, you adorable little ragamuffin.

Lisa: You never heard of recycling? It means to reuse things to conserve our natural resources.

Mr. Burns: Ooh, so Mother Nature needs a favor? Well, maybe she should have thought of that when she was besetting us with droughts and floods and poison monkeys! Nature started the fight for survival, and now she wants to quit because she's losing? Well, I say "hard cheese"!

 Real Estate Agent: And, I'm sure a pro-wrestler such as yourself will appreciate all the closet space, Hitman.

Bret Hart: (sniffs) Eww! This place has got old-man stink!

Smithers: (to Mr. Burns) Don't listen to him, sir. You've got an enchanting musk.

 Homer: Wow, think of all the possibilities... (In a thought bubble, Lisa is given a medal)

Imaginary Announcer: Lisa Simpson has won the Nobel Prize...

Homer: Nah... (Image changes to show Lisa, now wearing a gi, getting a medal)

Imaginary Announcer: Lisa Simpson has won the Nobel Prize... for kickboxing!

Imaginary Lisa: Hi-Ya! (Lisa kicks the presenter)

Homer: (intrigued) Hmm...

  • Later in the flashback, Springfield is suffering a major heatwave:

 Ned Flanders: Uh, Homer?

Homer: What, Flanders?

Ned: Well, sir, I hate to be a suspicious Aloysius, but DID YOU STEAL MY AIR CONDITIONER?! (cut to footprints leading from a gaping hole in Ned's wall to the Simpsons' where the air conditioner is propped up with planks and duct taped to the wall.)

Homer: I'll admit it looks bad, Flanders. But doesn't the Bible say "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"? (Homer gets hit by a stone thrown by the 5-year-old Rod Flanders) Ow!

Rod: Got him, Dad!

  • Before 5-year-old Bart goes off to school:

 Homer: Now, son, on your first day of school, I'd like to pass along the words of advice my father game me.

(Homer thinks back to when he was 5-years-old)

Flashback Abe Simpson: Homer, you're dumb as a mule and twice as ugly. And if a strange man offers you a ride, I say take it!

Homer: (back in present) Lousy traumatic childhood!

  • The waiting period before Homer can get his gun. He has to wait 5 days so he sits in the front of his house, when a montage of "shootable" things, like his neighbor Ned Flanders (riding by on a lawn mower), Patty and Selma, a family of ducks and a truck with the Target logo pass in front of him. All while The Waiting from Tom Petty plays in the background.
  • Homer's bizarre Imagine Spot when he ponders what would happen if he used to use his gun to rob the Kwik-E-Mart (In short, he becomes a Southern U.S senator with a giant plantation, with Marge in a bikini right next to him dancing the Monkey).

 Homer: I'll do it! I'll rob the Kwik-E-Mart! All right, put your-- (he is then seen driving away from the store, with a sandwich in his hand) D'oh! Oh well, I'll rob it next time. (takes a bite out of the sandwich)

  • Homer bought a gun, and Marge does not like that:

 Marge: I don't want any guns in the house Homer, they only cause accidents! Remember when Maggie shot Mr. Burns?

Homer: I thought Smithers did it.

Lisa: That would've made a lot more sense...

    • (This is funnier when you know that the alternate ending to "Who Shot Mr. Burns" was that Smithers shot Mr. Burns, rather than Maggie.)
  • Homer turns out to be more of a gun nut than the NRA. Double points when he turned on the TV with his gun...and the show that came on had a cowboy fall off a roof after getting shot. Let's put it this way: you can tell you're in trouble when you're told off by a crabby old lady, a mobster, a hillbilly, a cynical bartender, and a TV clown with a seedy underbelly.

 Agnes: (with her typical motherly sternness) I've never seen such recklessness.

Louie: You might have hurt somebody.

Cletus: Are you some kind of mo-ron?

Homer: Yeah, but--

Krusty: Listen, yutz. Guns aren't toys. They're for protecting your family, hunting dangerous or delicious animals, and keeping the King of England out of your face.

  • Bart discovers the gun hidden in the veggie crisper in the fridge and decides to play William Tell with Milhouse. Milhouse holds the apple in his mouth.

Apu: Oh, would you shut up?

Homer: All you'd need is a car bomb and--

Apu: I can't believe you don't shut up!

Homer: Thank you so much!

  • When the family is thinking of a way to get their house back:

 Bart: I say we set fire to the house, kill them that way.

Marge: We don't want to kill them, we just want our home back!

Lisa: Well...if we did set fire to the house...

Marge: No fires!

Homer: I've got it!

Marge: No fires!

Homer: (in disappointment) Ohh...

Some say the ducks went to Canada. Others say, Toronto. And some people think, that Joe used to sit down there, (camera moves to another nearby pond) near those ducks. But it could be, that there's just no room in this modern world, for an old man...and his ducks.

(cut to Mr. Burns and Smithers watching)

Mr. Burns: Smithers... you think maybe my power plant killed those ducks?

Smithers: There's no "maybe" about it, sir.

Mr. Burns: (sniffles) Excellent.

  • Groundskeeper Willie: Away with ye! I have to finish him off while I'm still temporarily insane!

Mark: (clutching his ankle) Gaah! I can't, Homer! I twisted my ankle! You guys go on without me!

Homer: Never! (picks Hamill and Quimby up) Follow me! (Homer kicks nerds aside as he brings Hamill and Quimby into a spaceship Hamill was in moments ago. He shuts the ship's door, then opens it a couple seconds later). How was I supposed to know it's not a real spaceship?

    • Making this even better is that it was a SANDCRAWLER.

 Marge: How's your father's project coming along?

Ralph: At my house, we call them "uh-ohs"!

  • The fire safety play:

(The curtains part, revealing a hippie "crash pad." Ned and Maude Flanders, dressed in late-60s attire, open the door and walk in.)

Ned: What a great pot party!

Maude: Wasn't it, man?

Ned: Now for a regular cigarette to make the night complete. (lights one, takes a drag, and coughs) Oh, man that's good...

Maude: Mad Dog, I've been thinking. Maybe we should get another smoke detector in case that one trips out on us.

Ned: (laughs) Why bother, baby? One smoke detector's enough for Mad Dog. Now let's hit the sack.

(They both lie down in bed. In short order, Ned's cigarette sets his pants aflame)

Ned: Whoa, check it out! Mad Dog's on fire!

Maude: Stop, drop, and roll, man!

Ned: Ha, ha, ha, that's for clydes, baby. A little fire can't hurt you...

(The curtains close. Apu walks onstage to address the audience)

Apu: But Mad Dog was wrong. The fire burned through the night and cost him the use of his pants. Which just goes to show you...

(Ned pokes his head from behind the curtain)

Ned: Sorry to break character, but these stunt pants are getting mighty toasty!

Maude: Uh, roll, Neddie, roll!

Ned: (rolling around) It's not working! It just spreads the flames!

  • This gem of an exchange:

 Marge: (nervously) Homer, don't go in there... my woman's intuition is telling me that something bad will happen to you if you do.

Homer: (nonchalantly) Oh, Marge, your woman's intuition always acts up when I do something new. I do something dangerous at least once a week and nothing bad's happened to me so far. (Walks into main entrance of "Taste Of Springfield", whistling, and proceeds to step in a puddle, get hit in the back of the head by a Frisbee, and bit in the back of the neck by a bat.) Hey! A bat! That's new!

 Herald: My liege, thine daughters Gonherrea, Regan, and Cordelia.

Krusty: (standing up, not even restraining a grin) What is this? Merry Olde England or Petticoat Junction? (Chuckles nervously)

(Audience boos him in unison)

Krusty: (angrily) Hey, lighten up! It's a comedy!

Actor playing Herald: (whispering) No, it's not.

Krusty: (shocked) It's NOT?!?!?

  • The part where Homer is trying to write a restaurant review without Lisa is always funny:

Santa's Little Helper: Ruff!

Homer: Rough? I don't know, you've been pitching that all night.

Santa's Little Helper: Chewy?

Homer: Chewy? That's inspired!

  • Homer's song about eating that parodies "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story; made funnier by the fact it's not as obvious until the last part:

 Homer: I like pizza, I like bagels, I like hot dogs with mustard and beer, I'll eat eggplant, I could even eat a baby deer! La la la la la la la la la la! See that baby dear on the yard there....

Carl: Actually, I'd say you're having a severe psychotic episode.

Homer: (mumbling in rage) Psychotic...what a lousy, rotten...stinking... (tosses ball down lane, gets a strike) Huh?

Doctor: Mr. Burns, I'm afraid you are the sickest man in the United States. You have everything.

Mr. Burns: You mean I have pneumonia?

Doctor: Yes.

Mr. Burns: Juvenile diabetes?

Doctor: Yes.

Mr. Burns: Hysterical pregnancy?!

Doctor: (surprised) A little bit, yes. You also have several diseases that have just been discovered... in you.

Mr. Burns: I see. You're sure you haven't just made thousands of mistakes?

Doctor: Uh, no, no I'm afraid not.

Mr. Burns: This sounds like bad news.

Doctor: Well, you'd think so, but all of your diseases are in perfect balance. If you have a moment I can explain. (He displays a door and a series of plushies.) Here's the door to your body, and these are oversized novelty germs. That's influenza, that's bronchitis, and this cute little cuttle bug is pancreatic cancer. Here's what happens when they all try to get through the door at once. (He pushes the plushies through the door, mimicking The Three Stooges sound effects.) Woop-woop-woop-woop-woop! Move it, chowderhead! (Speaking normally.) We call it "Three Stooges Syndrome!"

(The extremely high security cell opens up to reveal... Sideshow Bob, restrained in such a manner he's suspended in the middle of the room.)

 Bart & Lisa: AHHHH! SIDESHOW BOB!

Sideshow Bob: [Completely nonchalontly] Oh Bart, we've been through so much together. Please, call me Bob.

Bart & Lisa: AHHHH! BOB!

 Sideshow Bob: This is a normal day?

Homer: I wanted to impress you.

    • The sequence with the dummy Homer, to see who would want to kill Homer, capped off with Homer attacking the dummy himself.

 Homer: (maniacally) After I kill you, everyone will think I'm the real Homer!

      • And then we cut to Sideshow Bob, who is mystified that Marge and the kids aren't the slightest bit surprised by something like this.
    • The constant shocks that Sideshow Bob receives, including one where the button gets stuck and gives him a prolonged shock. Bart sums it up best:

 "I don't know how we ever had fun without him."

  • From the unofficial 300th episode Barting Over:
    • Bart just found out he had a commercial gig as "Baby Stink-Breath" and informs Milhouse. Nelson then rides by on his bike:

 Bart: Promise me you won't tell anyone about it.

Milhouse: I won't. But these things have a way of getting out.

Nelson: (while riding his bike, points to Bart and looks at him) Ha-ha! Baby Stink-Breath! (he crashes into a tree because he was still looking at Bart) Daaah! Gruuh! It was worth it.

    • The sequence with Blink182:

 Tony Hawk: Yo, Blink 182!

(they stop playing)

Tom DeLonge: We have names, y'know!

Tony Hawk: Whatever! Crank it up!

(they start playing again)

Mark Hoppus: Man, let's trash this place!

Travis Barker: After we get paid.

Mark Hoppus: Nice!

    • This line which Tony Hawk states in the DVD commentary, he still uses to this day.

 Tony Hawk: You're going down, Homer. Then up. Then down. Then back up again. That's how the game is played.

  • From Large Marge (context: Marge has just mistakenly been given breast implants instead of a liposuction):

 Marge: "Oh yeah? Well, my husband will come back with me and he'll do a little malpractice on you!"

Doctor: (completely deadpan) "Oh yes, your husband, I'm sure he'll be furious."

  • "C.E. D'oh!" has four such moments:
    • The whole "how to strip for your wife" class was pure comic gold.

 "Aww, nobody loves Oily Homer..."

    • The Successmanship Guy's description of his car: "That's a Bentley Mark XII. They gave one to me, one to Steven Spielberg, then they shot the guy who made it." Lenny comments that he'd hate to be in that union.
    • Homer talking about firing robots: "Don't tell me they can't cry."
    • Finally, Homer talking with the female employee at the retreat:

 Female Employee: Homer, I'll go over the organization chart if you'll just stop staring at my boobs.

Homer: No deal.

    • Maggie dancing to Sex Bomb.
  • Homer gives Lisa his wedding ring so he won't get paint on it: This is a Band-Aid wrapped in tinfoil!" "My real one's inside a turtle."
  • "Mr. Spritz Goes to Washington" has this little number, as Lisa's waiting for the right distraction to slip an important bill into congress.

 Homer: (bursts in on the ground floor, drunk) You call this a bicameral legislature??! (spits on the floor, and gets immediately assaulted by security, including whaling on his groin) OOOH--I say, I say, my groin!!


Season 15

  • In Treehouse Of Horror XIV, Bart gets his hands on a watch that allows him to stop time. He uses this to make Lisa stick her finger up her nose, eat all of Homer's donuts before he could do so, replaces his knife with a banana when he tries to stab himself out of misery, and then takes his clothes as well as Nelson when he attempts to laugh at Homer's expense.
  • From The President Wore Pearls:
    • Superintendant Chalmers is talking to Skinner about how to deal with Lisa. He then points to Willie outside and delivers the glorious line "Maybe that escaped mental patient you hired has some kind of toxin in his shack" at which point Willie waves cheerfully. "Yes, hello Willie".
    • From the same episode: "I'll be cooking me Lean Cuisine in yer kiln! HAHAHAHAHAHA!"
    • We got this segment of the musical:

 Bart: Lisa is a fool.

Skinner: I think the rules are cool.

Willie: I'M FALLING IN THE POOL!

    • Bart's 'poem'.

 Bart: Lisa is a nut. She has a rubber butt. Every time she turns around it goes putt-putt.

    • Milhouse asks Lisa if it's true the staff makes fun of the students in the teacher's lounge. Lisa says no and opens the door, just in time for us to hear:

 Willie: Look at me! I'm Milhouse! I tuck me shirt into me underpants! (teachers laugh) I've got no friends, so I confide in Willie!

  • In The Regina Monolouges the family visits England to help Grandpa find a lost love, and are greeted by then-Prime Minister Tony Blair.

 Homer: (after Blair leaves) Wow, I can't beleive I just met Mr. Bean!

    • The two gentlemanly gentleman making out. "Mmmmm-mmmmmmhmmm-mmmmyes, quite. Mmmmm!"
    • The family meets J. K. Rowling outside of a bookstore.

 Lisa: JK Rowling! You've turned a whole generation of kids unto reading.

Rowling: Thank you, young Muggle.

Lisa: Can you tell me what happens at the end of the series?

Rowling: (sighs exhaustedly) He grows up, and marries you. (angrily) Is that what you wanted to hear?!

Lisa: (dreamily) Yes.

    • (the family leaves England)

 Marge: It was nice of them to forget the whole thing if we agreed to take Madonna back with us.

Madonna: (from inside duffle bag Marge is holding) I keep telling you, I'm English!

Marge: English ladies don't pump gas naked!

 Homer: Mr. MacBeth, I'm so sorry.


Season 16

  • This exchange from Midnight Rx, after Homer, Ned, Apu, and Abe have been thrown in a Canadian prison:

 Guy: We've confiscated your car and its contents.

French Translator: Nous avons confisqué votre voiture et son contenu.

Guy: You may leave Canada, but never return.

French Translator: Vous pouvez quitter le Canada, mais ne retournez jamais.

Guy: I am a big fat French idiot.

French Translator: Je suis un grand gros - HEY!

  • "Goo Goo Gai Pan" has many:

 Bart: What's menopause?

Homer: Son, menopause is when the stork who brings babies gets shot by drunken hunters.

    • The informational video:

 Robert Wagner: So let's all give menopause a round of "meno-plause." (looks off-screen) Meno-plause? I'm not saying that.

    • In China:

 Chinese consulate agent: The Chinese Government only allows wholesome, married couples to adopt. No "hen without cock." I apologize if that is a Double Entendre in your language. It is not in ours.

 Homer: (high on sleeping pills) Hey look, a dragon!

Dragon outside window: Hello, Homer. Give me your peanuts and you may fly on my back.

Homer: I'll give...you...one!

Dragon: Oh, you are a very greedy man. The other dragons shall hear of this! (flies away)

Homer: Hey dragon! You fly like a girl!

(after learning what he has to do/pretend to be Selma's spouse, and immediately went out of being high thanks to Marge and Selma)

Homer: NOOOOOOOO!

 Homer: (at the preserved body of Mao Zedong) Awww, he's like a little angel who killed 50 million people. Yes you are, yes you are!

 Chinese announcer: I regret to inform you that our star acrobat suffered an onset of outspokenness, and suffered a bullet-related death.

Chinese man #1: This is most disillusioning!

Chinese woman: It seems our leaders are not all-knowing!

Chinese man #2: Now I will question everything! Why doesn't Pearl Jam ever play here?!

 Madam Wu: Lisa, soon you will have a Chinese baby sister who will surpass you academically.

Lisa Simpson: I don't know about that. I'm considered pretty smart.

Madam Wu: Well, Tibet was considered pretty independent. How'd that work out?

 Homer: I was this woman's husband for a few days -- in name only! -- and beer will soon obliterate that memory. But I don't think this baby could find any greater love on your planet or ours.

 Chinese Dragons: (singing) American jerks are going home/Now we sleep for a thousand years/When we wake the world will end.

  • From Mobile Homer:
    • The sequence of events that occur as Homer is cleaning out the garage. First, he finishes a can of Duff beer and throws it behind his shoulder:

 Homer: Ahh...hmmm. Seems a shame to chuck out these cross country skis. Mmmmm...I'll keep one. (He snaps the other one in half and throws it in the garbage can.) Let's see now. (checks list) Kill spiders? We don't have spiders.

(Homer looks around for spiders and see one making a web around his right arm.) (screams) Ahhh! (He grunts about 10 times while trying to squish the spider. It crawls under a cardboard box.) Stupid spider! Afraid of dying?! (Homer sneaks over to the box and lifts it up; the spider is gone.) A-ha! Hmm?

(Homer looks around, then under the bottom of the box and sees about two dozen spiders fall on to his face, causing him to run around the garage and scream like a maniac. He finds a can of spider poison titled "Charlotte's Dead" and sprays it on his face.) YEEEOOOWWW! OOOWWWHHOOWW! WHAT?! SPIDER POISON IS PEOPLE POISON?!

    • After informing Marge in the bedroom that he won't be dying for many, many years, Homer getting his neck crushed by the bedroom window.
  • From Future-Drama:
    • This argument between Bart and Lisa:

 Bart: You're gay for Moleman!

Moleman: (sadly) Nobody's gay for Moleman.

    • Future Homer buys the very first "hovercar" ever made. He's driving the car with Future Bart in the passenger seat. They enter the "Quantum Tunnel" and when they come out the other side, Bender from Futurama is now riding in the car with them. {{[http|//www.youtube.com/watch?v=sogYgHlNnqo "I.G.Y. (What a Beautiful World)"}} by Donald Fagen is playing in the background.]:

 Bender: Alright! You guys are my new best friends!

Future Homer: You wish, loser! (he throws Bender out of the "hovercar" and Bender breaks apart) Ah heh heh heh heh heh!

 "Here's another bomb for ya, Marge: I like beer."

  • From The Father, The Son and the Holy Guest Star, when Father Sean tells Bart of how he repented his ways after a drunken brawl with his dad.

  Father Sean I was laying on the gutter, picking up my teeth, when suddenly St Peter himself appeared in front of me. "Sean, you wanker." he says, "Repent of your wicked ways or sod off." And then he gobbed in my face and turned back into a streetlight.

    • Homer not knowing how to say Bingo when he won at Bingo.
  • From "The Heartbroke Kid":
    • The spoof of the opening sequence, where the now-obese Bart is buying snacks from a vending machine instead of writing on the chalkboard. When the bell rings, it takes forever to reach the entrance. As he skateboards, the ground underneath him cracks, he bends the street sign he usually grabs, makes Marge's car spin out of control, and as he gets home, he lands on Homer's car, making him fly out. Finally, as the other Simpsons sit down on the couch, they look at each other, wondering where Bart is.

 Bart: (groaning, clutching his chest) My heart! It hurts so much! Like it's caught in a vice!

Homer: (laughing) My boy's in love!

Lisa: I think he's having a heart attack!

(Bart collapses)

Homer: Come on, you can fight this! Do the Bartman! Do the Bartman!

(Bart feebly moves around)

Homer: (sobbing) Oh, why won't you dance? DAAAAAAAAAAAANCE!


Season 17

  • From Bart Has Two Mommies:

 Bart: Don't let our hands touch, it's gay.

Rod: What's gay mean?

Bart: Umm, it means you used to be afraid, but now you're not.

Rod: (to Flanders) I'm gay, daddy, I'm gay! Mrs. Simpson made me gay!

Marge: Uh, I believe he's saying 'he's okay.'

  • From The Girl Who Slept Too Little:

 Bart: If you're looking for Lisa, she said she was going to spend the night in the boneyard out back.

Marge: And you're just sitting here!?

Bart: I figured the best thing I could do was monitor the news for any reports.

Marge: You're watching cartoons!


Season 18

  • The subplot of The Haw-Hawed Couple, where Homer is reading Lisa the Angelica Button book. When reading ahead, he discovers that Greystash dies to save Angelica from the "Suff-o-clock of Sandy Doom". Rather than upset Lisa, Homer improvises his own ending, providing the world with:

 Greystash Mustache power! ACTIVATE! *cue his mustache taking a level in badass, Popeye style*

    • And during the credits:

 Homer: *sobbing at Moe's* No man should have to outlive his fictional wizard!

    • Best part is Angelica's delivery of the line "I somehow escaped from the hourglass!" And then Lisa reads the real ending and decides Homer's was better.

 Lisa: What happened to the Merlinical Council?

Homer: Um, they went to Star Wars land and...fought Star Wars.

    • Nobody mentions the opening of the episode?

 Martin: Individually we are weak, like a single twig. But as a bundle, we form a mighty faggot!

Bart:' Well said!

(A title appears: fag•got (fag´• et) n. a bundle of sticks for fuel. [Fr. fagot, a bundle of sticks])

  • From Homerazzi, we have the following:

 Fireman: Mr. Simpson, we've already been here 6 times this month!

Homer: Yeah, but, um, one of those times, I'd actually dialed 9-1-1 by accident but I was too embarrassed to admit it, so I set the house on fire. It feels good to tell the truth! No, I'm lying, it feels bad.

    • Also all of J. K. Simmons lines as the "Jamerson-ish" tabloid reporter.

 (Looking through Homer's Photos)

Tabloid Reporter: Wonderful! Terrific! This has page one written all over it. Why the hell did you do that!?

Homer: I wanted to remember my place in a book I was reading.

  • From Marge Gamer:
    • Marge discovers the Internet, then the online role playing game "Earthland Realms".
    • When she can see her house from space, she realizes, via the Internet, Homer is sunbathing nude outside. Then, through the webpage, we see her chasing him. He hops the fence and runs into Flanders' house, where his parents are visiting.

 Ned: "Homer, you've met my parents."

Homer: "Not naked I haven't!"

    • "The Shadow Knight? He's the most evil, destructive player in the game. He once beat me to death with my own life bar." It was either funny or unsurprising that the most evil, destructive, and successful (in Marge's words) player in the game was Bart.
    • After they killed the original Shadow Knight/Night, the new one kicked the head of a player like a soccer ball, it turned out the new one is Marge Simpson.

 Moe (a head she's kicking around): "I'm paying $14.95 a month for this?"

 (Homer notices a guy waving a orange/yellow flag).

Homer: What's the matter buddy? The American flag not good enough for ya? (headbutts him)

Girl: That was my father!

Homer: (completely serious) I'm your father now.

  • From "Crook And Ladder", when Homer is trying to convince Moe to not steal a priceless clock from a burning building:

  Moe: "I can't let go of it, Homer! It's been in my family for nearly forty seconds!"

  • Episode 400, "You Kent Always Say What You Want" has it's share of funny moments:

  Kent Brockman *After Homer knocks a cup of hot coffee over him*: OW, THAT HURTS LIKE A *cuts to the Simpson family watching the news report, with Kents last words garbled*

    • Bart 'Etch-A-Sketch'ing the word for Marge, then not being able to erase the message, resulting in Marge destroying the toy.
    • Kent referring to his swear as 'A word so foul that it would only be muttered by Satan himself whilst on the toilet'.
    • The end of the episode, where Homer tries to announce the truth about the Fox network, but his voice is dubbed over with speech that instead promotes Fox programming. When Homer tries to tell the viewers the truth, he is quickly silenced by the 20th Century Fox Television and Gracie Films logos.


The Simpsons Movie


Season 19

  • From Midnight Towboy.

 Marge: At least you need me, sack of potatoes. *starts rocking the sack of potatoes to sleep*

    • From the same episode:

 Homer: When you married a man who would years later without warning become a tow-truck driver, you knew what the deal would eventually be.

  • From , the reconciliation song:

 All: Yeah Daddy's back!

Lurleen Lumpkin: And I'm feeling like a daughter

All: Daddy's back!

Bart: And she's feeling like she oughta

All: Daddy's back!

Royce Lumpkin: And he's drinking bottled water

Lisa: Keep it down! I'm reading Harry Potter

Marge: My body washes Estee Lauder

All: Daddy's back and I'm feeling like a daughter again!

(Beat)

Grampa: And here comes Grampa with an otter!


Season 20

 all: Ho-high, ho-high! It's time to now get high! We'll take some shrooms and go to our rooms...

    • The "Fountainhead" parody is pretty good as well.

 "Ellsworth Toohey": MEDIOCRITY RULES!


Season 21

  • The subplot in the episode Thursday's with Abie revolves around Bart taking care of Larry the Lamb, a stuffed animal his class has to take home and care for. Bart hates the thing, which leads to this exchange:

 (Bart is swinging Larry around while Santa's Little Helper bites it)

Bart: That's it boy, go for the nards!

Lisa: Bart! (grabs Larry) if you don't want him, give him to me.

Bart: How come you never act like this when I'm cruel to real animals?

Lisa: I do, it enrages me!

Bart: I thought you Hindus were supposed to love everybody.

Lisa: (angrily) I'm a FREAKING BUDDHIST!!

    • Likewise, the main story, filled with Cassandra truths, brick jokes, ironic and meaningful echoes, laced with a heaping helping of good, old-fashioned shout-outs to make any elderly viewer laugh. One exchange in particular got this troper, who took a cinema history course recently, laughing hysterically. It takes place during Abe's reminiscing of being a shoe-shiner on the platform for the Tinsletown (a.k.a. Hollywood) express. As the train pulls in, out steps the usual parodies of classic actors like Fatty Arbuckle, the Three Stooges, and Paul Muni (who, apparently, always looked like Frankenstein, even in real life), and Abbot and Costello. Abe looks up, realizes that he's shining the shoes of Clark Gable, and this exchange takes place:

 Young Abraham (excitedly): Clark Gable!

Gable: That's right! Perhaps you've seen my brief yet memorable appearance in Du Barry, Woman of Passion?

Young Abraham (Excitedly): I sure have, Mr. Gable! Say, why haven't you been in any good pictures yet?

Gable: I'm not sure. Maybe the right role just hasn't come along yet. Say, what's that you're reading?

Young Abraham: Oh, this? It's just Gone with the Wind. It's got a boring romance story, and only one swear word, but not a very good one. Here, you can have it.

Gable (curiosity raised): Gone With The Wind, eh? Let's see... (flips through pages) Garbage, garbage, my line, garbage, my line, garbage, garbage, my line, epic war plot, fancy dresses, Yes! I can do this! (closes book, hops on train) (Shouting) Thanks, kid! Don't tell this to another soul for about 60 years!

  • The scene in the episode Stealing First Base in which after Bart's earlier kissing of a girl lands the school in trouble, the school declares itself an 'Affection Free Environment'. An informational play is carried out with Skinner and Willie acting as Bart and the girl respectively, and the two of them, rather uneagerly, kissing each other. When everyone in the assembly hall starts laughing at this, Superintendent Chalmers steps in and threatens to make them keep kissing until the kids stop laughing. Needless to say it doesn't stop.
  • From "The Devil Wears Nada", during Homer and Marge's attempt to play a romantic game:

  Homer: Whisper into ass?! This game sucks!

  • From "The Color Yellow," when the family finds out that one of their ancestors who they thought were slave owners married their freed slave, thus making them 1/64 black.

 Bart: So that's why I'm so cool.

Lisa: And that's my jazz is so smooth.

Homer: And that's why I earn less than my white coworkers!

Season 22

  • Most of the parts with Jermaine and Brett (or Ethan and Kurt) in Elementary School Musical.
  • "How Munched is That Birdie in the Window?": Child/pet psychologist, for Bart and Santa's Little Helper. "Now, Marge, from what I understand from our phone conversation, you have a terrible service provider."
    • While the ostrich attacked the Simpsons, one of them hit the ostrich with an object, after being beaten with the object from the ostrich, someone besides Homer, or Marge, or even Lisa said "WHY YOU LITTLE..." and strangled the ostrich.
  • This conversation, from when Lisa became the manager for Bart's Baseball team:
    • From the same episode: "I made baseball as much fun as doing your taxes!"
  • "Nein, nein! Why did I go to the nine o'clock show?" John Lennon would've found that hilarious!
  • in the episode where Bart's Angry Dad cartoon is turned into a short film, from Halle Berry's talks to to Randy Newman's "You've Got an Enemy".


Season 23

  • Homer's hostage video in "The Falcon and the D'ohman":

 Homer: Death to America!

Ukrainian Gangster: Stick to the script.

Homer: Fine.

  • The couch gag from "Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelt", which is done by Ren And Stimpy creator himself, John Kricfalusi. As a bonus, the episode itself is done at Rough Draft Studios, which not only does many other Simpsons episodes, but also did a number of Ren And Stimpy's second season, as well as all of the majority of those done after John's firing.
    • From the same episode, Chalmers' flashback to the last time he taught.
    • "If school failed me, does it have to go to Summer Jimbo?"
  • In "The Food Wife," Homer goes with Bart and Lisa to a video game expo. There is an "Angry Birds" demonstration where they have a stuffed bird aimed at stuffed pigs. The bird, however, misses the pigs completely, hits an actual construction site, and drops rafters on TNT causing the entire thing to blow-up.
    • Everyone cheers.
    • Later on Homer trying to get Bart and Lisa to the "Funtendo" showroom FPS-style while throwing discs at people, then when he gets hit he restores his health with a slice of pizza.
    • Gordon Ramsey telling Marge that she messed up with involving Homer in the first place, then telling her to get out of his dream, since he stole it away from her, to the point that Gordon HIMSELF wakes up in his bed wondering "What the bloody hell was that?!" before Marge wakes up proper.
  • The entirety of Neil Gaiman in "The Book Job." Especially the end: "I've cheated my way to the best seller list once again... AND I DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO READ!"
    • "CHEESEBURGERS, FRENCH FRIES, I'M ALL OVER THAT PAL"
  • The montage of Simpsons Christmas cards 30 years into the future in "Holidays of Future Passed", especially the ones where it seemed that Lisa experimented in Lesbianism during college!
  • In "Politically Inept, with Homer Simpson", there is a parody of the bottom markees of news networks. Highlights include: Obama declares mulligan on first term, Steve Jobs reveals iGhost and Gingrich looks forward to first term, fourth wife.
    • Homer as a spoof of TV conservative talk hosts, primarily Glenn Beck.
  • From the 500th episode, "At Long Last Leave:"
    • The Chalkboard gag:

   Milhouse writes: Bart's earned a day off.

 [[spoiler: *Title Card*

Thanks for 500 Shows.

All we ask is that you go out

and get some fresh air

before logging on the Internet

and saying how much this sucked. ]]

  • At the beginning of "Them, Robot" Homer is trying to go the day without drinking alcohol for a physical, and sees his family as alcoholic drinks. He sees Abe as a bottle of Jack Daniels and tries to open his head, where at first he screams but then it becomes relaxing to him.
    • When Homer first sees Mr. Burns' robots employees he mistakes them for Comic-Con nerds.


Unsorted / Running gags

  • Everytime Mr. Burns says "Excellent", or when Nelson laughs at someone.
    • One Nelson moment in particular: In the episode The Debarted, the new kid Donny is catapulting garbage bags at and into the school off of teeter-totters. While the other kids adore him, Bart tries to prove he can do it to. Unfortunately for Bart, he ends up with garbage on his face. While the kids laugh, Nelson gives us this humorous variation:

 'Nelson: "See-SAW!"

  • This troper is torn between the episode with Hank Scorpio ("And on Fridays the lunchroom serves hotdogs and burgers and BEER! He loves German BEEEEERRR!"), and the episode with the Stonecutters (Patrick Stewart: "And now the final ordeal; the Paddling of the Swollen Ass -- with paddles!)
    • Homer: You'd better run, egg!
    • Anything involving Homer and the rubber duck. "'Cause he wants it!"
  • For me it'll always be either be Homer's daydream where he eats the chocolate dog, or "BARTYOUWANNASEEMYNEWCHAINSAWANDHOCKEYMASK?!"
  • Many if not most of Grampa Abraham Simpson's rants would qualify. But a few classics...
    • "Dear Mr. President. There are too many states nowadays. Please eliminate three. I am not a crackpot."
    • "That's nothing! In my day, kids got spanked by Presidents all the time! Grover Cleveland spanked me on two non-consecutive occasions!"
    • "We can't bust heads like we used to, but we have our ways. One trick is to tell 'em stories that don't go anywhere! Like the time I caught the ferry over to Shelbyville? I needed a new heel for my shoe. So I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now, to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on 'em. 'Gimme five bees for a quarter,' you'd say. Now, where were we? Oh, yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones..."
  • This editor can't decide whether his favorite Halloween Special is Number III ("Dad, you killed the zombie Flanders!" "He was a Zombie?"/The whole bottomless pit sequence in the first segment) or Number VI ("Don't scratch up them heads!"/"Step into the light my son!" "(Sounds of electrocution) YAHHHHHH!!!!" ), but he would like to give a special mention to Number XIV for two moments, the bit when God releases Homer from being the Grim Reaper ("Hey wait, this isn't Marge. This is her fat sister Selma.") or the part where Bart and Milhouse torment Homer with the stopwatch:

 (Homer tries to eat donuts, but Bart and Milhouse keep making them disappear, until he pulls out a knife)

Homer: I can't go on! (Tries to stab self, but the knife turns into a banana) OHHHHHHH!!!! (Gets stripped naked) AWHHHHHHH!!! (Nelson appears out of nowhere)

Nelson: HA....(Also gets stripped naked)...HUH?!

  • Pretty much any time the characters have a conversation with their own brains. Particularly when Homer looks for a peanut under the couch, but finds a $20 bill instead.

 Homer: Aww, twenty dollars? I wanted a peanut!

Homer's Brain: Twenty dollars can buy many peanuts!

Homer: Explain how.

Homer's Brain: Money can be exchanged for goods and services.

Homer: Woo hoo!

 Insurance Agent: Now before I give you the check, one more question. Uh, this place "Moe's" you left just before the accident -- this is a business of some type?

Homer's Brain: Don't tell him you were at a bar! [gasp] But what else is open at night?

Homer: It's a pornography store! I was buying pornography!

Homer's Brain: Heh heh heh, I would've never thought of that!

    • Homer signs up for the Big Brothers Big Sisters-style program:

 Clerk: Mr. Simpson, why are you interested in becoming a big brother?

Homer's Brain: Don't say revenge...don't say revenge...don't say revenge...

Homer: Revenge.

Homer's Brain: That's it, I'm outta here! (walks out, closes door behind it)

    • Marge playing bridge with her social club:

 Marge's Brain: Oh, we've got a winning hand, we can take the rest of the tricks.

(camera pans higher up)

Marge's Brain: Oh, we'd better be careful. The purpose of this game is to make friends. You don't make friends by winning.

(camera pans higher up)

Marge's Brain: Still, there's nothing more popular than a gracious winner.

(camera pans higher up)

Marge's Hair: Don't ask me, I'm just hair. Your head ended ago.

  • The following line left this troper in a fit of laughter for several minutes.

 Ralph: When he grows up, I want to be just like me!

    • ANYTHING Ralph Wiggum says.

 "I like men now!"

  • Bart and Skinner's duel, complete with Duel of the Fates playing in the background.
  • Any episode where McBain (the character, not his actor, Rainier Wolfcastle) appears.

 McBain: "But Captain, I can't avenge my partner's death with this pea-shooter."

He holds up a normal-sized pistol.

Captain: "I don't wanna hear it, McBain. Tha-that cannon of yours is against regulation. In this department we go by the book."

(The Captain holds up the book of regulations. McBain draws his "cannon", a revolver bigger than his head, and fires it at the book. The book promptly disintegrates, along with a massive chunk of the wall behind it.

McBain: "Bye book!"

  • Smithers catching on fire and crying for help as Mr. Burns waters his garden...

 Smithers: Mr. Burns! I'm flaming!

Mr. Burns: (Aside Glance)

  • The family goes to a fair and Homer begins to eat various shishkabobs. Bart hands him something that's merely a stick that's on fire, and Homer eats it. Realizing what just happened, Homer starts strangling Bart while breathing fire. Even Bart's laughing as he's being strangled!
  • Most of Troy McClure's movie titles, although two standouts include Lead Paint: Delicious but Deadly or Firecrackers: The Silent Killer.

  • In the Apocalypse Now episode when he had to marry Mary:

 Bart: I have to do this, mom. I love that big old cow!

Mary: How could you! I had to starve myself to get into this dress!

Bart: No, no, no, no! You look great, honey!
