In Marge We Trust[edit]

The Canine Mutiny[edit]

  • ==Synopsis==
  • {{spoiler}}
  • When Bart complains he never gets any mail, Marge gives him the family's junk mail. Bart is only interested in a credit card solicitation from MoneyBank. He fills out the application, and when pressed for a name, he uses Santa's Little Helper (the company reads the name as "Santos L. Halper"). Amazingly, the credit card application is approved, and before long, Bart is sporting his very own credit card.
  • Bart – blissfully ignorant at how credit works – goes on a shopping spree, buying the family some very expensive gifts from a mail order catalog: Vancouver smoked salmon and a radio-frying pan for Marge, a golf shirt with corporate logo for Homer, "Trucker's Choice Stay-Alert Capsules" for Lisa ... and plenty of toys and clothing for himself. Lisa is immediately suspicious, but Bart takes advantage of his sister being high on pills and explains his way out of her questions.
  • The best item of all that Bart buys with his fraudulent credit card: A finely-bred, pre-trained collie, of which only 800 will be born. Not letting its $1,200 purchase price stand in the way, Bart promptly orders one with his credit card. Before long, a crate with his new dog arrives. An overjoyed Bart learns the dog's name is Laddie, and Homer and Marge – still not suspicious about Bart's recent spending spree – falls in love with the dog, who can herd sheep and perform CPR.
  • Bart fails to pay off "Santos L. Halper's" credit card bill, and it isn't long before he gets a call from a collection agency demanding payment. When the calls and collection letters persist, Bart has enough and enlists Laddie to help him bury his ill-gotten credit card. Later, repo men arrive to take back all the merchandise. Lisa – who is the only one home – demands an explanation, and Bart is forced to admit the truth. When a repossessor demands the $1,200 dog, Bart identifies Santa's Little Helper as the dog they're after. The greyhound is herded into the truck, and Bart sadly watches as it drives away.
  • Noticing that Santa's Little Helper is gone, the family begins to bond with Laddie ... except for Bart, who begins to miss his canine friend. He fears for Santa's Little Helper's fate, at one point imagining him being burned alive in a cruise ship's furnace. An exhausted Bart is giving Laddie yet another walk, when the collie saves the life of the unibrow baby.
  • At a ceremony honoring Laddie's heroism, Chief Wiggum decides that Laddie would make the perfect police dog. Bart gives him away, and now Bart is forced to explain why the Simpsons now have no dog. Homer makes Bart do whatever it takes to get Santa's Little Helper back. Bart eventually learns from Rev. Lovejoy that the dog was given to a parishioner named Mr. Mitchell.
  • Bart visits Mr. Mitchell, who is blind, and asks for his dog back, but when he sees how the man and Santa's Little Helper (who has been renamed Sprinkles) have bonded, a heartsick Bart leaves. Bart, still determined to get his dog back, makes a late-night, unannounced visit to Mr. Mitchell's home. Bart and Santa's Little Helper are reunited, but Mr. Mitchell eventually traps Bart in a closet. He calls the police and wants Bart charged with burglary, but Chief Wiggum has brought along Laddie, who immediately sniffs out a marijuana packet in Mr. Mitchell's pocket.
  • Chief Wiggum begins to read Mr. Mitchell his rights, when Eddie remarks about medicinal uses of the drug. After sending Bart away with Santa's Little Helper, Chief Wiggum declares its time to party as the Bob Marley song 'Jamming' plays over the end credits.
  • ==Cultural references==
  • The episode title is a play on the 1951 Herman Wouk novel The Caine Mutiny and the subesequent Humphrey Bogart movie.
  • The dog "Laddie" is a play on Lassie, in terms of name, appearance (resembling a Rough Collie) and uncanny intelligence.
  • The notion of dogs mistakenly being issued major credit cards was previously mentioned in "Sideshow Bob's Last Gleaming". A real-life incident followed the episode in 2004, when a man replied who signed up to an e-mail list using his dog's name received a credit card in this name. [1]
  • Marge listens to the song "You Really Got Me" by The Kinks played on the frying pan radio.
  • The scene in which Santa's Little Helper has to choose between Bart and Mr. Mitchell is very similar to a pivotal scene in Air Bud, which was released several months after this episode.
  • Mr. Burns believes Laddie is a member of Skull and Bones, a secret organization based at Yale University.
  • At the end of the episode, the song "Jammin" by Bob Marley is played (with a clearly-doped Wiggum and Lou attempting to sing along).

The Springfield Files[edit]

The Twisted World of Marge Simpson[edit]

  • | season = 8
  • }}
  • "The Twisted World of Marge Simpson" is the eleventh episode from the eighth season of The Simpsons.
  • ==Plot==
  • {{spoiler}}
  • Marge is a member of the Springfield Investorettes, along with other prominent Springfield ladies Edna Krabappel, Helen Lovejoy, Maude Flanders and Agnes Skinner. Marge is reluctant to invest money in high-risk ventures, so the other Investorettes kick her out of the group. At home, Lisa convinces Marge to "roll the dice" and beat the Investorettes at their own game. She decides to buy her own franchise.
  • Later on, at the Franchise Expo, she sees that the Investorettes have become members of the Fleet-A-Pita franchise. Marge decides to join the Pretzel Wagon franchise. Watching a Pretzel Wagon video, she sets up a makeshift office in her garage, and distributes flyers with Homer, Bart and Lisa's help. Finally, she makes the pretzels, which are approved by the resident "Pretzel inspector", Homer.
  • She sets up shop outside the Power Plant. However, the Investorettes' Fleet-A-Pita van rolls up and steals all her business. Dejected, she leaves. Lisa suggests that she think big. So Marge holds Free Pretzel Day in the Springfield War Memorial baseball Stadium. A lot of people take the free pretzels, only to throw them at Mr. Burns, who won a new car (and injuring Whitey Ford into the bargain). Marge goes into depression.
  • Homer decides to take matters into his own hands and tries to find someone who can help Marge. After finding out that the Pretzel Wagon owner has died, he goes to church... to meet Fat Tony (who had set up an ad in the bulletin there). Fat Tony agrees to help Homer. The next day, Marge gets a large order for pretzels. Many snack-food vendors are pushed around and intimidated by the mob. Even the Investorettes' Fleet-A-Pita van is blown up. Marge's business is booming!
  • Later, Fat Tony meets Homer and demands that he pay up for his "favor". Homer refuses. Later, Marge gets an order to some remote location. On the way, she encounters Fat Tony and his goons. He tells her about the deal he made with Homer and says he is entitled to a part of Marge's profits... just around 100%! Marge confronts Homer about this and he comes clean. Marge refuses to share her profits with the mob.
  • At home, knowing that the mob will be coming for the money, they make pretzels to calm themselves. When the mob arrives, Marge again refuses. Suddenly, the Investorettes show up, and this time, they have backup - the Japanese Yakuza. The mobsters and the Yakuza lay into each other. Marge and Homer withdraw into the house.
  • Homer apologises for his indiscretion, and Marge forgives him. The two gangs continue fighting...
  • ==Cultural references==
  • The opening scene takes place at the "Municipal House of Pancakes", a reference to IHOP.
  • Agnes says, "Children are so fat today! Isn't there some way we can make money off that?"
  • It is suggested that Marge "can't keep up with the go-go 90s".
  • The song played during Fat Tony's rampage of terror against food stands is the song "The Lineman."
  • Frank Ormand's "you'll be there" speech mirrors that of Tom Joad at the conclusion of John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath.
  • Lemmon's portrayal of Frank Ormand is based on the character Shelley Levene in Glengarry Glen Ross, also played by Lemmon.

You Only Move Twice[edit]

  • | season = 8
  • }}
  • "You Only Move Twice" is the 2nd episode from the eighth season of The Simpsons.
  • ==Synopsis==
  • {{spoiler}}
  • Hank Scorpio, the head of Globex Corporation and a James Bond-esque international supervillain, is on the prowl for the top nuclear technician in Springfield. After Smithers rejects his offer, his cronies move on to the person with the second longest tenure at the plant: Homer. After they win him over with a slick promotional video, the Simpsons pack their belongings and get ready to move to Scorpio's company town of Cypress Creek. After the family has difficulty selling their house, they abandon it and settle into a utopian neighborhood; however, things are not as they seem. Homer is happy with their new life; despite his destructive schemes, Hank is a dream boss, and Homer finally finds a job that he is good at: bossing other people around. However, the other family members endure various hardships: Bart is initially popular at his new school (he even meets a Milhouse-type), but when his teachers learn he doesn't know cursive or the multiplication table, they tuck him away in the special education class, which is filled entirely with Ralph Wiggum-like students; Lisa falls in love with the local flora and fauna, only to find that she's allergic to most of it; and a house that cleans itself leaves Marge with too much time to drink the company's complimentary wine. When they get sick and tired of dealing with all this they plead with Homer to take them back to Springfield, and after much soul-searching he gives in. It's just as well, as the government raids Scorpio's compound. When they arrive back in Springfield, they learn that Scorpio has taken over the East Coast, Otto and his girlfriend have been squatting in their house, and the Denver Broncos (a farewell gift from Scorpio) are on their front lawn.
  • ==Allusion to Silicon Valley (and beyond)==
  • Hank Scorpio bears a striking physical resemblance to Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle Corporation. Both men are exuberant, hyperenergetic, bearded Type A personalities with a love of sports and adventure. More supporting evidence:
  • Cypress Creek looks very similar to Redwood Shores, California, the planned community where Oracle's headquarters is located
  • The writers' original name for Cypress Creek was "Emerald Caverns," but the former was chosen because it sounded more like the name of a town in Silicon Valley.
  • The original town name of "Emerald Caverns" was probably a reference to Oracle's campus, which is nicknamed "The Emerald City" or "Oz" due to the shiny green glass that completely covers all of the buildings.
  • The building Scorpio and Homer work in is round, just like Oracle's headquarters
  • Scorpio also has been noted to resemble (physically and in behavior) former Philadelphia 76ers President and television personality/self-help author Pat Croce, as well as Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Records and other Virgin Brands and Danny Bonaduce.
  • ==Cultural references==
  • The episode features many references to Ian Fleming's James Bond and EON Productions' subsequent series of films. They include:
    • Hank Scorpio is a parody of a typical James Bondian villain, specifically Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Perhaps unintentionally, his name is also similar to that of Vladimir Scorpius, the villain from the James Bond novel Scorpius by John Gardner.
    • The episode title is a parody of You Only Live Twice.
    • Additionally, Scorpio's doomsday gun room and the battle with soldiers also greatly resembles Blofeld's volcano base and climatic battle in You Only Live Twice.
    • The episode ends with a theme song sung in the style as the themes to Goldfinger and Thunderball. The song describes Scorpio's "plot to rule the world" as one of his obsessions.
    • A British secret agent, "Mr. Bont", is tackled by Homer as he tries to escape. Earlier he is strapped to a table with a laser pointed at him, referencing a famous scene in Goldfinger. Bont asks Scorpio if he expects him to talk, to which Scorpio replies, "I don't expect anything from you except to die and have a very cheap funeral." As Hank congratulates Homer for tackling Bont ("When you get home tonight, there'll be another story on your house"), in the background guards can be seen surrounding Bont and shooting him with their submachineguns. This is the second time Homer has ensured the death of a secret agent. The first was a deleted scene in $pringfield (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling), when Homer's terrible blackjack dealing skills led to James Bond-ironically under the same thin disguise of "Bont"- losing and Ernst Stavro Blofeld dragging him away. The scene was used in the third segment of "The Simpsons' 138th Episode Spectacular", which was devoted to deleted scenes.
    • A soldier is strangled by a woman using only her thighs, à la Xenia Onatopp from GoldenEye. The solider is actually General Norman Schwarzkopf, according to the DVDs episode commentary track.

Homer tries to perform selfless gestures for Marge, such as making "soothing" ocean noises to lull her to sleep (which includes squawking and him saying "Arrr, matey"). Marge acts fairly indifferent toward these gestures, so Homer files for a divorce from Marge. However, this is not an admission of defeat; when Marge comes home, Homer surprises her with an impromptu second wedding, complete with many invited guests and a band with one of The Doobie Brothers as one of its members. Kirk sings a song at the reception to Luann, but she rejects a second marriage with him. (A Milhouse Divided)

Despite his drab new surroundings, Kirk keeps a cheery attitude toward it all... that is, until he is fired from his job at the cracker factory for being newly single (crackers are "a family food," his boss explains). Meanwhile, Luanne quickly begins her life after Kirk by starting a new relationship with Chase, who goes by "Pyro" on American Gladiators. Marge invites Homer to go see Spalding Gray with Luanne and Chase, but Homer declines, instead going out with Kirk. Kirk also has a new relationship; he begins dating a wig-wearing radio station temp named Starla who promises to help him launch his singing career, but instead steals his car. While at Moe's, Kirk mentions that he never saw the divorce coming. "One day, your wife is making your favorite meal," he says. "The next day you're thawing a hot dog in a gas station sink." Homer begins to fear that his and Marge's marriage might be next, especially when he sees that Marge left hot dogs thawing in the sink for him. (A Milhouse Divided)
  • Kirk works (or worked, since he was fired in this episode) at Southern Cracker, whose slogan is "the dryyyyyy cracker". (A Milhouse Divided)
  • Lisa calling 911 trying to get an ambulance fails, after Bart attempted to make several prank calls earlier that night. Then she tries to call Dr. Hibbert but has a day-dream about what would happen. She then tries to take an unconscious Bart (and a hyperactive Maggie) to Dr. Nick Riviera's clinic but fails to get an appointment. She then takes Bart and Maggie on foot to the hospital. Along the way, Chief Wiggum halts Lisa to see what kind of wheelbarrow she has (what she was carrying Bart and Maggie in). After complimenting Lisa on her excellent choice of barrow Bart falls into the river right in front of the crowded Squid Port. Everyone assumes that Lisa murdered Bart and that she is on drugs, and is about to drown Maggie. Homer and Marge are shocked at these events. The next day, Bart gets treatment, confesses it was his fault and apologizes to Lisa. She is distraught that her reputation as a babysitter is ruined; however, despite the rumors, she still gets a few requests from other families, because she's one of the only babysitters in town. (My Sister, My Sitter)
  • Lisa decides to earn extra money as a babysitter. However, because of her age, no one takes her seriously.

After a relatively uneventful night, Ned puts out the good word for Lisa, who experiences a business boom. (My Sister, My Sitter)
  • Lisa lets Nelson know how she feels about him by attempting to pass a love note in class; however, Lisa speaks up only after Nelson has seriously injured Milhouse, thinking the note came from him. Lisa is resolved to reform Nelson into a model student. She changes his appearance by taking him to the Wee Monsieur (where he is dressed in a sweater and slacks) and giving him a new hairdo. The two later share a kiss during their date at the Springfield Observatory. (Lisa's Date with Density)
  • Lisa performs a science experiment to see if cola will dissolve a tooth. Bart shocks Lisa as part of his project to prove that nerds conduct electricity. She accidentally shocks the tooth, and it undergoes an unusual electrical reaction: Lisa finds out she has created life. The people in her universe evolve at a rapid rate, going through the various ages humans have gone through into modern times and eventually, the future. Bart destroys some of the ecosystem in Lisa's tub universe, and the people respond, after Bart nearly destroyed their world by slipping his finger ("Whoops! My finger slipped." "Whoops! my finger slipped." "Whoops! My finger slipped.") by attacking Bart with spaceships. Lisa is shrunken to fit into the tub, and finds out that she is worshipped as their god, while Bart is feared as the devil. Lisa wants to return to her normal size, but the people in the tub have yet to invent a "re-bigulater" and she is trapped. Bart takes Lisa's project to school, which wins first prize in the science fair, and Lisa realizes she is now forever trapped in the tub. (Treehouse of Horror VII)
  • Marge asks Belle to close down the burlesque house, but she refuses. At a town meeting, Marge brings up the matter of the house and soon gets support of the entire town to destroy it. An angry mob arrives to take it down. As they are about to destroy the house, Bart convinces Homer to tell them to stop. He does so by breaking into a musical number (accompanied by Belle and her backup dancers) which convinces the town not to destroy the house. (This is a parody of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas). However, Marge arrives with a bulldozer, having missed the song.

To help out, she starts a ventriloquist act to pay for the damage. (Bart After Dark)

  • Soon, cabin fever begins to fall upon the two men. They build snowmen to pass the time (though Burns insists they build real men out of snow) and give them their clothing. As for the other workers, they reach what they think is the cabin. However, it is actually a ranger station and they realize that something bad has happened to their colleagues. In the cabin, Homer and Burns stare at each other's eyes, filling their minds with paranoia. Burns is driven mad and attempts to kill Homer. After a struggle, Burns ignites the cabin's propane tank, launching the cabin out of the snow and next to the other workers. Reminding everyone of the contest, all the workers run in and Lenny, being the last one to reach the cabin, is fired (though Burns decides that everyone has learned their lesson and that no one is fired after all). As for himself and Homer, the episode ends with the two of them exchanging paranoid glances. (Mountain of Madness)
  • The Couch Gag for this episode parodies The Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover. Homer looks behind him, and later turns around. This is a reference to the cover of the first Be Sharps album (from the Episode Homer's Barbershop Quartet. (Bart After Dark)
  • The Springfield Squid Port re-opens and Homer and Marge go out. Bart is insulted by the fact that his younger sister is going to be babysitting him. To make things difficult, Bart torments her by ordering a giant sub, hiring Krusty for a bachelor party, and feeding Maggie coffee ice cream for dinner. Eventually, Lisa jumps at Bart, who falls backwards down the stairs and dislocates his arm. Bart then realises that if Lisa doesn't take him to the hospital she won't babysit him anymore. To make his condition worse, Bart locks himself in his room and hits his head on the wall "to make the lump bigger" then falls unconscious. (My Sister, My Sitter)

The aliens soak Homer in rum and return him to Earth; naturally, no one believes him despite Dole and Clinton's bizarre new manners of speech. At a debate between the candidates, he attempts to expose them as "alien replicons from beyond the moon." He is thrown out of the debate and accidentally finds the aliens' spaceship. Homer flies the ship into space, where he tries to return the real Dole and Clinton, but instead ejects them nude into space. On the day before the election, Homer succeeds at revealing the candidates' true identities in Washington, D.C. during a major speech; however, the invaders convince the crowd that voting against either of them and for a third-party candidate would be to "throw your vote away," much to Ross Perot's chagrin.

Homer and Marge call Dr. Hibbert about the thing, which appears to be Bart's conjoined twin brother, Hugo (voiced by Nancy Cartwright as well).. Dr. Hibbert says that Hugo and Bart's birth as conjoined twins was an irregularity because one of them was pure evil (the one on the left side, since he continuously bit the one on the right side), and he had to separate them, choosing to take Bart home and let Hugo be chained up in the attic. Bart even sees the scar from the birth. The rest of the family leaves Bart at home, while they look for Hugo. Meanwhile, Hugo is actually home and takes Bart up to the attic and ties him up to a bed. Hugo decides he's going to sew himself and Bart up. When they come home, Dr. Hibbert realizes that Hugo's scar is on the wrong side, meaning that the evil twin is actually Bart, who is locked up in the attic in Hugo's stead and made to eat fish heads, while the rest of the family eats turkey.

A Milhouse Divided[edit]

  • | season = 8
  • }}
  • "A Milhouse Divided" is the sixth episode of The Simpsons' 8th season.
  • ==Synopsis==
  • {{spoiler}}
  • Marge decides to throw a dinner party to escape from the doldrums of everyday life at the Simpson house. She invites the Flanders family, the Lovejoys, the Hibberts and the Van Houtens. Kirk, Luanne and Milhouse Van Houten come late, and the parents nitpick at each other all night as Milhouse plays upstairs with Bart. The two seem to get more quarrelsome as the party progresses, and finally, despite Marge trying to divert the party away from the fighting pair, Luanne demands a divorce.
  • Kirk moves out of the Van Houten house and into "Casa Nova: A Transitional Place for Singles", where he sleeps in a race-car bed. Despite his drab new surroundings, Kirk keeps a cheery attitude toward it all... that is, until he is fired from his job at the cracker factory for being newly single (crackers are "a family food," his boss explains). Meanwhile, Luanne quickly begins her life after Kirk by starting a new relationship with Chase, who goes by "Pyro" on American Gladiators. Marge invites Homer to go see Spalding Gray with Luanne and Chase, but Homer declines, instead going out with Kirk. Kirk also has a new relationship; he begins dating a wig-wearing radio station temp named Starla who promises to help him launch his singing career, but instead steals his car. While at Moe's, Kirk mentions that he never saw the divorce coming. "One day, your wife is making your favorite meal," he says. "The next day you're thawing a hot dog in a gas station sink." Homer begins to fear that his and Marge's marriage might be next, especially when he sees that Marge left hot dogs thawing in the sink for him.
  • Homer enlists the aid of Lisa to help him figure out how to save his marriage. He recalls his wedding reception, which was nothing more than him and Marge at a truck stop with a whale-shaped cake that read "To a Whale of a Wife." Homer tries to perform selfless gestures for Marge, such as making "soothing" ocean noises to lull her to sleep (which includes squawking and him saying "Arrr, matey"). Marge acts fairly indifferent toward these gestures, so Homer files for a divorce from Marge. However, this is not an admission of defeat; when Marge comes home, Homer surprises her with an impromptu second wedding, complete with many invited guests and a band with one of The Doobie Brothers as one of its members. Kirk sings a song at the reception to Luann, but she rejects a second marriage with him.
  • ==Trivia==
  • Although Milhouse's parents stay divorced after this episode ends, they reunite in the 2005 episode "Milhouse of Sand and Fog".
  • Kirk works (or worked, since he was fired in this episode) at Southern Cracker, whose slogan is "the dryyyyyy cracker".
  • Chase takes Luanne out on the town in an Atlasphere from American Gladiators.
  • Marge makes Bart her specialty "butterscotch chicken", but in "Blood Feud" Marge says that Bart's allergies are "butterscotch and imitation butterscotch."
  • Originally, Bart was going to be jealous of Milhouse getting more attention and was going to try to split up Homer and Marge. This sub-plot was later dropped.
  • A big name singer was originally sought to sing "Can I Borrow a Feeling?" over the end credits. The writers wanted Sheryl Crow, but she declined and the concept was later dropped.
  • Homer recommends reading Love Is... to a couple who are about to be divorced, and describes it as "a comic about two naked eight-year-olds who are married."

Meanwhile, Marge and Lisa discover that all the animal cleaning has been taken by celebrities and drive home.

Soon, the Flanderses and Lovejoys confront him on the matter in front of Marge, who was previously unaware of Bart's form of employment.
  • Marge asks Belle to close down the burlesque house, but she refuses. At a town meeting, Marge brings up the matter of the house and soon gets support of the entire town to destroy it. An angry mob arrives to take it down. As they are about to destroy the house, Bart convinces Homer to tell them to stop. He does so by breaking into a musical number (accompanied by Belle and her backup dancers) which convinces the town not to destroy the house. (This is a parody of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas). However, Marge arrives with a bulldozer, having missed the song.

To help out, she starts a ventriloquist act to pay for the damage.

  • Bart plans to reveal what he witnessed, but Principal Skinner and Mrs. Krabappel – wanting their privacy respected – swear him to secrecy. They hire him as their gofer so they can secretly exchange messages. Bart agrees for awhile, especially since the reward for his cooperation is that Milhouse will inherit Bart's poor school record.

However, several residents reply with their accusation about the two having sexual intercourse in the janitor's closet. Principal Skinner insists nothing of the sort happened, and that he, in fact, is still a virgin.

The two later share a kiss during their date at the Springfield Observatory.

Meanwhile, Bart and Lisa meet Smithers and agree to help him, though they do more stalling than helping. In the cabin, Burns and Homer fail to tunnel out.

  • Soon, cabin fever begins to fall upon the two men. They build snowmen to pass the time (though Burns insists they build real men out of snow) and give them their clothing.

After a relatively uneventful night, Ned puts out the good word for Lisa, who experiences a business boom.
  • The Springfield Squid Port re-opens and Homer and Marge go out. Bart is insulted by the fact that his younger sister is going to be babysitting him. To make things difficult, Bart torments her by ordering a giant sub, hiring Krusty for a bachelor party, and feeding Maggie coffee ice cream for dinner. Eventually, Lisa jumps at Bart, who falls backwards down the stairs and dislocates his arm. Bart then realises that if Lisa doesn't take him to the hospital she won't babysit him anymore.

  • | season = 8
  • }}
  • "Treehouse of Horror VII" is the first episode of The Simpsons' eighth season, as well as the seventh Halloween episode. The episode aired on October 27, 1996.
  • ==Synopsis==
  • {{spoiler}}
  • ===Opening sequence===
  • It's Halloween night, and Homer proceeds to light a jack-o'-lantern. The pumpkin ignites instantly, and the fire spreads to Homer's hand, then to his entire body. He runs back and forth, screaming, as "The Simpsons Halloween Special VII" appears on-screen. While running to the couch with the Grim Reaper sitting on it, the Simpsons die, piling over each other. The Grim Reaper uses them as a footstool.
  • ===The Thing and I===
  • Bart and Lisa think that there is something in the attic. Homer claims not to know what they are talking about, although he feeds the thing fish heads. Bart and Lisa investigate in the attic to find out that there really is a monster. Homer and Marge call Dr. Hibbert about the thing, which appears to be Bart's conjoined twin brother, Hugo (voiced by Nancy Cartwright as well).. Dr. Hibbert says that Hugo and Bart's birth as conjoined twins was an irregularity because one of them was pure evil (the one on the left side, since he continuously bit the one on the right side), and he had to separate them, choosing to take Bart home and let Hugo be chained up in the attic. Bart even sees the scar from the birth. The rest of the family leaves Bart at home, while they look for Hugo. Meanwhile, Hugo is actually home and takes Bart up to the attic and ties him up to a bed. Hugo decides he's going to sew himself and Bart up. When they come home, Dr. Hibbert realizes that Hugo's scar is on the wrong side, meaning that the evil twin is actually Bart, who is locked up in the attic in Hugo's stead and made to eat fish heads, while the rest of the family eats turkey.
  • ===The Genesis Tub===
  • Lisa performs a science experiment to see if cola will dissolve a tooth. Bart shocks Lisa as part of his project to prove that nerds conduct electricity. She accidentally shocks the tooth, and it undergoes an unusual electrical reaction: Lisa finds out she has created life. The people in her universe evolve at a rapid rate, going through the various ages humans have gone through into modern times and eventually, the future. Bart destroys some of the ecosystem in Lisa's tub universe, and the people respond, after Bart nearly destroyed their world by slipping his finger ("Whoops! My finger slipped." "Whoops! my finger slipped." "Whoops! My finger slipped.") by attacking Bart with spaceships. Lisa is shrunken to fit into the tub, and finds out that she is worshipped as their god, while Bart is feared as the devil. Lisa wants to return to her normal size, but the people in the tub have yet to invent a "re-bigulater" and she is trapped. Bart takes Lisa's project to school, which wins first prize in the science fair, and Lisa realizes she is now forever trapped in the tub.
  • ===Citizen Kang===
  • While fishing, Homer is abducted by the aliens Kang and Kodos. When they demand Homer point them towards Earth's leader, Homer tells them about the then-upcoming election, and that the winner could be either Bill Clinton or Bob Dole. Kang and Kodos kidnap both Dole and Clinton, placing them in suspended animation tubes. Kang and Kodos take on their forms to ensure that one of them will become the next leader. The aliens soak Homer in rum and return him to Earth; naturally, no one believes him despite Dole and Clinton's bizarre new manners of speech. At a debate between the candidates, he attempts to expose them as "alien replicons from beyond the moon." He is thrown out of the debate and accidentally finds the aliens' spaceship. Homer flies the ship into space, where he tries to return the real Dole and Clinton, but instead ejects them nude into space. On the day before the election, Homer succeeds at revealing the candidates' true identities in Washington, D.C. during a major speech; however, the invaders convince the crowd that voting against either of them and for a third-party candidate would be to "throw your vote away," much to Ross Perot's chagrin. Kang is eventually elected President and forces the citizens of America to build a giant raygun to aim at another planet.
  • ==Trivia==
  • The phrase "Don't blame me, I voted for Kodos" (said by Homer in response to Marge complaining about President Kang's initiative to use the humans as slave labor) was the inspiration for the name of the Ska band I Voted for Kodos (IV4K).
  • The music playing during the bioduplication sequence is the theme from the late-60s television series The Invaders.
  • Cartman's storyline in the South Park episode "Simpsons Already Did It" spoofs the "Genesis Tub" segment.
  • This is the first "Treehouse of Horror" episode since Treehouse of Horror II to have Kang and Kodos in more than a brief cameo.
  • In The Thing and I, Homer's autobiography is called Homer, I Hardly Knew Me.
  • At the end of The Genesis Tub, Lisa is barefoot; despite the fact that she was wearing slippers when she was beamed down to the Tub World. (However, due to the slippers having no backs, they could have fallen off during the time Bart took it to the school science fair.)
  • The rings which shrink Lisa in The Genesis Tub are a reference to the silent film Metropolis.
  • First Halloween episode to be the season premier.


SimpsonsTrivia[edit]

Note, the bot needs improvement if we're going to use this alphabetical section since it's sorting the sub-list on one of the pages alphabetically - but it probably doesn't make sense to sort the trivia anyway.

Burns, Baby Burns[edit]

  • The Simpsons visit Mt. Swartzwelder Historic Cider Mill, which is named after Simpsons writer John Swartzwelder.
  • Homer, as a pretend kidnapper, hides with Larry in a movie theater just like Lee Harvey Oswald did.
  • According to the DVD audio commentary, Dangerfield was very helpful in the writing process of this episode.
  • Larry decides to return home after realizing he has forgotten about his wife and kids, this would mean that Burns has a daughter-in-law and grandchildren.
  • Ned Flanders' Season Pass to the Cider Mill is Number, 00001.
  • The play in Mr. Burns' "Play Room" is Death of a Salesman

El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)[edit]

  • The episode was originally pitched by long time writer George Meyer during season 3. The staff felt it was too odd for the show, but showrunners Bill Oakley and Josh Weinstein decided to use it.
  • This is the second episode to have its English title in another language, the first being "Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk".
  • Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan were the writers' two choices to play the coyote. Bob Dylan has turned the show down many times, so Johnny Cash was given the part.
  • When Homer hallucinates, Mrs. Krabappel sounds like the teacher from Peanuts.
  • The coyote was intentionally drawn in a more boxy way so that it looked unlike the other Simpsons characters. It was also done that way to resemble the representations of coyotes in American Southwestern art.
  • Most of the chili pepper sequence was animated completely by David Silverman, who wanted it to look just right and didn't want to risk sending it to Korea.
  • The shot of real life clouds is only the second time live-action footage was used in The Simpsons. The first time was in "Treehouse of Horror VI". Afterwards there was also live-action footage in "Treehouse of Horror IX".
  • Some 3D computer animation is used in this episode for the giant butterfly seen during Homer's hallucination. Also, during the same hallucination, Ned Flanders' line ("What can I do-diddily-doodily-diddly-hobbily-hibbily-gobbily-gobbily-gobble-gabba-gabba-hey!") was also treated on an Macintosh computer so that it increased and decreased pitch.
  • This episode's commentary on the season 8 DVD set was the first commentary to include children.
  • The FOX censors sent a note to the writers about the part where Homer coats his mouth with hot wax so he can eat Chief Wiggum's super-spicy chili pepper. (the actual note reads as follows: "To discourage imitation by young and foolish viewers, when Homer begins to pour hot wax into his mouth, please have him scream in pain so kids will understand that doing this would actually burn their mouths."[4])
  • This episode mentions that Springfield slopes westward to the sea, indicating that it is either on the West Coast or western Florida.

Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment[edit]

  • The name of the shop where Homer purchased the bathtubs was the 'Houseware Warehouse'.
  • During the St Patrick's Day parade scene, the Irish Republican Army guerrilla fighter is portrayed with "John Bull's Fish and Chip Shop" exploding due to a planted bomb. This part of the scene is usually cut out on UK television, but is left unedited in Ireland.
  • The directors (particularly Matt Groening) were displeased on the DVD comentaries at the appearances of the background characters in this episode. This is most notable in the first scene at the speakeasy when Chief Wiggum and Princess Kashmir are dancing together, as the latter's breasts move in a very bizarre manner.
  • When Marge compliments Homer on his bootlegging scheme, and Lisa objects, Marge, Homer, and Bart tell Lisa to go to her room.

Homer's Enemy[edit]

  • This episode was listed by Matt Groening as one of his favorites.[2] It is also a favorite of then-showrunner Josh Weinstein and The Office creator Ricky Gervais.
  • Frank Grimes gets mentioned throughout the series, and we later learn he has a son, called Frank Grimes Jr. His son explained that his mother was a hooker.
  • Chief Wiggum's quote "Ralphie, get off the stage sweetheart!" is used as the chorus of the 2005 song by Bloodhound Gang, "Ralph Wiggum." The song lyrics are composed chiefly of Ralph Wiggum quotes.
  • Hank Azaria did the voice of Frank Grimes, but he originally thought that William H. Macy should do the role. However, the producers felt this was a role that a regular cast member was more suited to do, so Azaria provided the voice of Grimes, but modelled many of his mannerisms after Macy.

Homer's Phobia[edit]

  • This was an extremely controversial episode. FOX was flooded with angry letters, but every station still aired the episode as scheduled. It was later praised by several gay communities of America, because Homer learns his lesson in the end.
  • John wears Homer's "Pin Pals" shirt from the episode "Team Homer".
  • Also, this episode was an 1997 Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming One Hour or Less).
  • The song playing in the steel mill is the 1991 number-one hit "Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)" by C+C Music Factory. The Alicia Bridges hit single "I Love the Nightlife" is also featured, as part of Homer's record collection.
  • The winged eyeball seen behind the John character in the shop is a tribute to the art of troubled musician Daniel Johnston. Matt Groening is a big fan and even talks about wanting to have Johnston on his show in one of the DVD extras to The Devil and Daniel Johnston.
  • Running out of the basement, Bart yells "Force majeure" - a legal term which allows at least one party to be freed of responsibility due to events out of their control.
  • ==Goofs==
  • In the closing scene where the Simpsons are being driven away in John's car, the background of stars moves relative to the movement of the car. It should stay still as a backdrop, of course.
  • ==Quotes==
  • Skinner (looking at political buttons at Cockamamie's): Hmm. These campaign buttons are all partisan. Don't you have any neutral ones? "May the better man win", "Let's have a good clean election", that sort of thing?
  • Cashier: Uh no, but we do have some old shirt buttons. They're kind of kooky and fun.
  • Skinner: Missy, you have just talked yourself right out of a sale! (leaves)
  • Marge: Oh, Homer, look. Look, a TV Guide owned by Jackie O!
  • John: Oh, you should see the crossword puzzle. She thought that Mindy lived with "Mark".
  • Homer: Give her a break! Her husband was killed!
  • John: Oh, I know, wasn't that awful?
  • Homer: That John is the greatest guy in the world. We've gotta have him and his wife over for drinks sometime.
  • Marge: Hmm, I don't think he's married, Homer.
  • Homer: Oh, a swinging bachelor, eh? Well, there's lots of foxy ladies out there.
  • Marge: Homer, didn't John seem a little... festive to you?
  • Homer: Couldn't agree more, happy as a clam.
  • Marge: He prefers the company of men.
  • Homer: Who doesn't?
  • Marge: Homer, listen carefully. John is a ho... mo...
  • Homer: Right.
  • Marge: ...sexual.
  • Homer: AAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
  • Homer: Ohmygod Ohmygod Ohmygod! Oh my god! I danced with a gay! Marge, Lisa, promise me you won't tell anyone. [shaking Lisa] Promise me!!
  • Marge: You're being ridiculous.
  • Homer: Am I, Marge? Am I? Think of the property values. Now we can never say only straight people have been in this house.
  • Marge: I'm very sorry you feel that way, because John invited us all out for a drive today, and we're going.
  • Homer: Woah-ho-ho, not me! And not because John's gay, but because he's a sneak. He should at least have the good taste to mince around and let everyone know that he's... that way.
  • Marge: What on Earth are you talking about?
  • Homer: You know me, Marge: I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals flaming.
  • (John takes the family on a tour of the sordid side of celebrity Springfield)
  • John: And that's where Kent Brockman was caught cheating in the Springfield marathon.
  • The Simpsons: Oooh...
  • (passing in front of a plumbing supplies store)
  • John: And there's where Lupe Vélez bought the toilet she drowned in.
  • The Simpsons: Ohhhh!
  • Smithers: John...
  • John: Oh, Waylon. I'd like ya to meet the Simpsons.
  • Smithers: I know the Simpsons. (in John's ear) So this is your "sick mother"?
  • John: Don't do this to me, Waylon.
  • Homer: Hey, boy, where'd you get that shirt?
  • Bart: I dunno. Came outta the closet.
  • Homer: Marge, the boy was wearing a Hawaiian shirt.
  • Marge: So?
  • Homer: There's only two kind of guys who wear those shirts: gay guys and big, fat party animals. And Bart doesn't look like a big, fat party animal to me...
  • Marge: So, if you wore a Hawaiian shirt, it wouldn't be gay?
  • Homer: Right. Thank you.
  • John: ...and Helen Lovejoy, sure, she looks blonde, but I've heard cuffs and collar don't match, if you get my drift.
  • Marge: I don't, but I loved hearing it!
  • John: Homer, what have you got against gays?
  • Homer: You know! It's not... usual. If there was a law, it'd be against it!
  • Marge: Oh Homer, please! You're embarrassing yourself.
  • Homer: No I'm not, Marge! They're embarrassing me. They're embarrassing America. They turned the Navy into a floating joke. They ruined all our best names like Bruce, and Lance, and Julian. Those were the toughest names we had! Now they're just, uh...
  • John: Queer?
  • Homer: Yeah, and that's another thing! I resent you people using that word. That's our word for making fun of you! We need it!! Well I'm taking back our word, and I'm taking back my son!
  • Rosco: I want all of youse to say hello to the Simpsons.
  • Steel Workers: (camp) Halloooooww!
  • Homer: (screams) Has the whole world gone insane?
  • Steel Factory Worker 1:Stand still! There's a spark in your hair!
  • Steel Factory Worker 2: (acting girly) Eek! Get it, get it!
  • Steel Factory Worker 3: (Carrying tub of molten metal) Hot stuff, comin' through!
  • Bart: Dad, why did you bring me to a gay steel mill?
  • Homer: (crying) I don't know! This is a nightmare! YOU'RE ALL SICK!
  • Steel Factory Worker 4: Oh be nice!
  • Homer: Oh! My son doesn't stand a chance! The whole world's gone gay! (hooter sounds) Oh my God, what's happening now?
  • Rosco: (Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) begins to play) We Work hard; we Play hard.
  • Moe: Where you been, Homer? The entire steel industry is gay. Eh, aerospace, too, and the railroads. And you know what else? Broadway.
  • Barney: I always hoped Bart would grow up just like us. What happened?
  • Moe: Aw, it ain't no mystery. The whole modern world's got a swishifying effect on kids today. And their MTVs and their diet sodas ain't gonna set 'em straight, neither. You gotta do it yourself, Homer, and you gotta do it fast.
  • Homer: But what would turn Bart into a man fast? You have to think for me!
  • Moe: Well, let's see now, uh, time was you sent a boy off to war. Shooting a man'd fix 'em right up. But there's not even any wars no more, thank you very much, Warren Christopher!
  • Barney: Hey, better yet, Bart could shoot a deer! That's like shooting a beautiful man.
  • Moe: Hey, he's right, Homer. After the boy bags a deer, all the diet sodas in the world won't turn him back. And you just sit right back and watch the grandkids roll in.
  • [Homer and Bart gear up for their hunting trip]
  • John: Uh oh. Something's gonna die.
  • Homer: Butt out, Buttinsky. What would you know about hunting?
  • John: I know this much: I wouldn't wear that hideous hat. Here, take this one. It was worn by Yale Summers in Daktari.
  • Homer: Hang on to it, Toy-Boy! You might need it when it starts raining naked ladies!
  • Barney: Today, you're gonna be a man, Bart.
  • Bart: You guys going to teach me to drive?
  • Moe: [to Barney] Oh, yeah, let Twinkle Toes drive Betsy. Right.
  • Homer: [chuckling nervously] No, boy. You can't drive. You're only ten. You're going hunting.
  • Moe: You ever been hunting before, there, Barty?
  • Bart: Nope. Something about a bunch of guys alone together in the woods... seems kinda gay.
  • [awkward silence]
  • Homer: That is a very immature attitude, young man.
  • Barney (after the deer-hunting trip turns out to be fruitless): Aw, we should have stayed at the bar and shot some rats.
  • Moe: Hey! Those ain't your rats, Barn.
  • Moe: Come on, don't take this so hard, Homer. You still got that other kid, uh... Lisa. Let's, uh, take her out hunting tomorrow, make her into a man.
  • Homer: Aw, she'd never go. She's a "vegetarian."
  • Moe: Oh, geez, Homer, geez! You and Marge ain't cousins, are ya?
  • Barney: Is it all right to come out now, Mr. Gay Man...sir?
  • Moe: Yeah, we'll do anything you say! (beat) ANYthing! (shifty eyes)
  • Barney: Aw, Moe, we were saved by a sissy.
  • Moe: Yeah, yeah, we'll never live it down. Oh, boy, it looks like it's suicide again for me.
  • Homer: Hey! We owe this guy, and I don't want you calling him a sissy. This guy's a fruit, and a... no, wait, wait, wait: queer, queer, queer! That's what you like to be called, right?
  • John: Well, that or "John."
  • Lisa: This is about as tolerant as Dad gets so you should be flattered.
  • John: Great! Well, Homer, I won your respect, and all I had to do was save your life. Now, if every gay man could just do the same, you'd be set.
  • Homer: Amen to that.
  • Homer: Son, maybe it's the concussion talking, but any way you choose to live your life is okay with me.
  • Bart (to Lisa): Huh?
  • Lisa: (whispers) He thinks you're gay.
  • Bart: He thinks I'm gay? (We home in on Bart's head as 'Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)' begins to play. As the car drives off with the song still playing, a message appears across the screen.
  • Message:Dedicated to the Steel Factory Workers of America. Keep Reaching for that Rainbow!
  • Marge: (hugs Homer) Hmm...you seem a little softer than before.
  • Homer: I've been tenderized.
  • "Dedicated to The Steelworkers of America—Keep Reaching For That Rainbow!" (closing supertitle)

Hurricane Neddy[edit]

  • In the crowd scene at the end, outside the mental hospital, one of the signs reads "Free John Swartzwelder". John Swartzwelder is a long-time writer on the Simpsons. Swartzwelder himself is seen in one of the mental institution cells, he quickly closes the door as he sees the Simpson family approaching.
  • Ms. Lucille Botzcowski (also known as Botz, the Babysitter Bandit.) from 7G01 - "Some Enchanted Evening" makes a cameo appearance pacing around in her cell.
  • The Critic”—Jay Sherman—from 2F31 (“A Star Is Burns”) makes a cameo appearance as well, telling his doctor, "It stinks! It stinks! It stinks!"; the doctor's response to humor him: "That's right, Mr. Sherman. Everything stinks." The Critic had recently been cancelled, and this was the writers' explanation as to why (The Critic creators Al Jean and Mike Reiss were the show runners when Oakley and Weinstein were hired to The Simpsons staff). Also, in the closing credits Jon Lovitz is credited so he probably came in for that small part, seeing as how he had no other part in the episode. (Dr. Foster was Hank Azaria).
  • Dr. Foster is later seen in "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Marge", this time sporting a toupee.
  • Todd is wearing a Butthole Surfers shirt when the Flanders family is in the relief center ("Look, Dad! I'm a surfer!"). The censors, however, only allowed "Buttho Surfers".

In Marge We Trust[edit]

  • Reverend Lovejoy's church sounds are an ambulance, a bird (which sounds like a hawk cry), and a disco whistle.
  • Much of the Japanese dialogue in the episode is poorly pronounced/translated and unintelligible to a Japanese listener. His first piece of dialogue, for example, in the original Japanese is, Aka ni taishite burei da. Yogore ni yoberu. Honki da yo, but literally translates as, "With respect to dirt [I] am rude. [I] can call out filth. [I] am serious!" The three women also refer to him as a hōmu rogo ("home logo"), the Japanese term for a corporate logo.
  • There is a real-life exterior-cleaning company based in British Columbia, Canada that calls itself "Mr. Sparkle". [5]
  • The fake Fruity Oaty Bar commercial in the film Serenity is partially inspired by Mr. Sparkle. The octopus featured in the Fruity Oaty Bar commercial can be seen as a toy in the background of the original Mr. Sparkle commercial.
  • Mr. Sparkle also appears as one of the Collector Cards in The Simpsons Hit & Run.
  • A deleted scene contained on The Simpsons season eight DVDs reveals that Jasper Beardley preceded Reverend Lovejoy as minister at the Simpsons' church in Springfield.

Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious[edit]

  • The name that the young Rainier Wolfcastle sings is Fritz Schnackenpfefferhausen.
  • The hot dog Apu has is the one that got him fired in "Homer and Apu".
  • In the "Making Of..." feature on the Kill Bill Volume 2 DVD, Quentin Tarantino can be seen wearing a t-shirt with his Simpsons likeness and quote pictured on the front.
  • A scene and song were cut from the episode, where Patty and Selma sing "I Love to Smoke" to the tune of "I Love to Laugh" from Mary Poppins. In fact, one line from the song, "Although we'll croak by the year 2003", refers to how the writers didn't expect the show to still be on by then.
  • Just as Shary Bobbins is a parody of Mary Poppins, Groundskeeper Willie serves as a parody of Dick Van Dyke's character. Like Van Dyke, Willie is seen playing several instruments in the park and singing. However, Willie sings "Maniac" , an obvious parody of Flashdance and even douses water on himself after the song, just like in the movie.
  • Julie Andrews was the original choice to portray Shary Bobbins but Nancy Cartwright mentions in her autobiography that after hearing Maggie Roswell's reading, the producers cast her in the role instead.

The Homer They Fall[edit]

The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show[edit]

  • The voice of Itchy and Scratchy are actually voiced by Harry Shearer (Scratchy) and Dan Castellaneta (Itchy).
  • This episode, the 167th, was the episode that made The Simpsons longer-running than The Flintstones. As a result of this, when Sky One broadcast the episode, it replaced the existing couch gag (a Sergeant Pepper parody, first used in "Bart After Dark") with one in which the Simpson family encounter the Flintstone family sitting on the couch (recycled from Season 4's "Kamp Krusty"). This version of the episode was also broadcast by Channel 4 in 2006.
  • The writer who speaks out and gets fired is the caricature of Simpsons writer George Meyer.

The Old Man and the Lisa[edit]

  • Bret Hart was the first and (as of 2007) only professional wrestler to appear on the show.
  • Ralph Wiggum is in the junior achievers club, despite all of the academic problems he is seemingly faced with.
  • Mr. Burns' comments made about a synagogue are rather ironic, as Harry Shearer, who provides his voice, is himself a non-Orthodox Jew.
  • Mr. Burns' mental dictonary has an insert that states running dog n: one who does someone else's bidding: LACKEY, ie.(SMITHERS)

The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase[edit]

  • Many of the producers, notably Matt Groening, were uneasy about this episode, feeling that its intentionally bad writing and plots would be mistranslated as actual bad sitcom writing. He also didn't like the idea of breaking the fourth wall and saying that in "reality" the Simpsons were not a family and just a bunch of actors. This issue wasn't really addressed in this episode, but the viewers are left with the impression that they are a family. In the Season 11 episode "Behind the Laughter", the fourth wall is broken again, but the Simpsons are portrayed as a family that goes into acting together.
  • This episode has since proved very controversial, with some loving it, such as Entertainment Weekly which put the episode in its Top 25 Simpsons episode list, while others seem to misinterpret the intentionally bad writing and simply call it a bad episode.
  • Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa, has only one line in this episode (not counting her giggle as she removes her Mardi Gras outfit).
  • This was the first non-Halloween episode to have 3 separate stories, although "22 Short Films About Springfield" had over a dozen storylines.

The Springfield Files[edit]

The Twisted World of Marge Simpson[edit]

You Only Move Twice[edit]


SimpsonsCultural[edit]

Alphabetical


Sectioned

A Milhouse Divided[edit]

  • The episode title is a play on Matthew 12:25.

Bart After Dark[edit]

  • Belle may possibly be named after Belle Watling, the owner of the burlesque house in Gone with the Wind.
  • When Homer stops the destruction of the burlesque house, Reverend Lovejoy says "This house is a very, very, very fine house", a reference to the Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young song "Our House".
  • The oil spill depicted in this episode is most likely a reference to the Exxon Valdez oil spill.
  • Mayor Quimby and the Quimby family, throughout Simpsons history, have been made to resemble JFK and the Kennedy family. Numerous little allusions to the Kennedy family have appeared throughout the series and in this particular episode, Mayor Quimby's wife is seen wearing a dress similar to one of Jackie Kennedy's dresses.

Brother from Another Series[edit]

  • The title is not only a pun on the movie title The Brother from Another Planet (The Simpsons has also spoofed this title with the episode title "Brother from the Same Planet"), but also a reference to the fact that guest stars Kelsey Grammer and David Hyde Pierce also play bickering and childishly competitive brothers on the sitcom Frasier. A title card just before the start of the second act explicitly brings up this connection.
  • Cecil's guess of "Maris?" (see quotes) is a reference to Niles' never-seen wife on Frasier. According to the season 8 DVD commentary, writers for this episode ran the script by NBC executives and writers for Frasier. The only thing they took exception to was a brief scene showing a character named "Maris". Their argument was, "We don't show Maris." To which Kelsey Grammer repeats, "You can never show Maris."
  • Krusty performs a 'prison special' at Springfield Penitentiary dressed in black: I slugged some jerk in Tahoe/They gave my one-to-three/My high-priced lawyer sprung me on a technicality — a reference to Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash.
  • Bob concedes that the Cappadocians are the only civilization in history that has ever considered chief hydrological engineer a calling.
  • Bart's suggestion to look in the "haunted mine" for evidence is a reference to Scooby-Doo, as is the later comedy chase sequence in the dam.
  • At one point Bob punches through a window in order to grab a door handle, growling incoherently in the style of Frankenstein's monster.

Burns, Baby Burns[edit]

  • The song playing over the street party scene is Journey's "Any Way You Want It". It featured on the soundtrack to Caddyshack, a film which starred guest star Rodney Dangerfield. The street party scene is very similar to the golf course party scene in Caddyshack in which both scenes play "Any Way You Want It".
  • Larry's line "I tell ya, I get no regard. No regard at all. No esteem neither." is a reference to Dangerfield's famous catchphrase, "I don't get no respect."
  • The ending sequence, with Homer and Larry locked up in the empty movie theater, parodies the ending of the movie Jimmy Hollywood, starring Joe Pesci. The 'possible outcome', in which Homer dies in a hail of bullets, was also fantasized by Pesci's character. Both pairs (Homer and Larry, and Pesci and his friend Christian Slater) eventually surrender to police.
  • Homer and Larry run into a costume shop which features an Environmental Protective Suit holding a guitar much like Marty McFly as "Darth Vader" in Back to the Future. After Homer and Larry go into the costume shop, the shop owner on his way to the bathroom passes a Darth Vader helmet.

El Viaje Misterioso de Nuestro Jomer (The Mysterious Voyage of Homer)[edit]

  • There are many similarities in the appearance of the dog guide to the coyote from Carlos Castaneda's "Teachings of Don Juan" - wherein after Carlos ingests peyote he plays in the desert with a wild coyote which is (or isn't?) an hallucination.
  • There are also allusions in the episode to the works of Richard Bach, whose works often focus on the concept of "soulmates" and typically involve quests led by spirit guides. At the end of the episode, the Sea Captain, refers directly to Bach's most famous book, by exclaiming, "Arr! Jonathan Livingston Seagull!"
  • When Homer begins to hallucinate Jasper says "Goo goo gajoob?" which is a line from The Beatles song I Am the Walrus.
  • During Homer's hallucination, Ned Flanders' non-sensical talk includes the words "Gabba Gabba Hey" which is a reference to The Ramones.

Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment[edit]

Homer's Enemy[edit]

  • Frank Grimes' way of waddling around the plant spoofs the scene from the Charlie Chaplin film Modern Times when Chaplin's character has a nervous breakdown from being overworked and begins waddling around the factory, tightening anything that looks like a loose nut with his wrenches. The only difference is that Chaplin's character didn't die in an electrocution that Frank Grimes did.

Hurricane Neddy[edit]

  • It's a Wonderful Life – as in the episode "When Flanders Failed", Homer leads the town to aid Flanders in his darkest hour, though on this occasion the results are far worse.
  • The CriticJay Sherman makes a cameo appearance in the mental hospital scenes. The Simpsons writers joked that this is what really happened to the character after the series was cancelled. Critic fans, however, don't consider this appearance part of the series' canon.
  • Dick Tracy and Pruneface – Ned's "Prune Tracy" remark is a pun on the comic strip detective. It's also an allusion to an off-color joke. Given the progression, the next name would be Dick Face, had Dr. Foster not stopped him.
  • Job – The plot of the episode is very similar to that of the Book of Job in the Bible.
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest – Several scenes at Calmwood Mental Hospital are taken from the 1975 movie.
  • Swanson TV dinners – The Juvenile Aggression Study film is sponsored by Swanson Angry Man Dinners, a play on Swanson Hungry Man Dinners.

In Marge We Trust[edit]

  • The episode title is a play on the United States' national motto, "In God We Trust".
  • The "futuristic text" on the Mr. Sparkle box is katakana, a Japanese syllable-based alphabet used for foreign loan words. The box's main caption, ミスタースパーコル, transliterates as Misutā Supākoru, "Mister Sparkle" in Japanese syllables. The words in the speech bubble, however, are ハワークリーン!, which transliterates as Hawā kurīn!, or "Hower clean!". This is an animation error as it should say パワークリーン! (the first syllable having a handakuten accent), which translitarates as Pawā kurīn!, or "Power clean!".
  • In the 1970s flashback, Flanders refers to an "accident" he suffered while dancing the Bump; in fact what happened was the purpose of the dance.
  • Skinner and his mother fall out after watching Mel Gibson's directing debut, The Man Without a Face, in which Gibson plays an artist with a half-disfigured face.
  • The Japanese businessman in the Mr. Sparkle corporate video is bathing in a sentō, a communal bath. He tells the watching "American investor" that he (the investor) is interested in distributing Mr. Sparkle in his "home prefecture" referring to the jurisdictional divisions of Japan, as opposed to "home State".
  • The point-of-view shot of the bullies circling Ned on their bikes parodies a famous scene from the film Black Rain.
  • In the zoo, one of the signs says "Habitat for Huge Manetees", a spoof of Habitat for Humanity International.

Mountain of Madness[edit]

My Sister, My Sitter[edit]

  • Businesses in the port include "It's a Wonderful Knife" (parodying the movie It's a Wonderful Life) and Planet Hype (parodying the real-life celebrity-owned restaurant Planet Hollywood).
  • Bart claims to be using nonviolent resistance, but does not know who Mahatma Gandhi is.
  • The sinister USAF officer, who insists that Lisa did not see a UFO (and waves away a man with a syringe), refers to the mythical Men in Black.
  • Smithers queueing in Dr. Nick Riviera's surgery, standing and looking distinctly embarrassed, is a reference to a persistent urban legend surrounding a celebrity (most commonly Richard Gere) reporting to an emergency room after having inserted a live gerbil into his own rectum. [7]
  • The reason Lisa choses to be a babysitter is because she reads 2 "Babysitter Twins" books an obvious spoof of the Ann M. Martin series The Baby-sitters Club
  • ==Quotes==
  • Ned: Homer, I've got a Fozzie of a bear of a problem. Y'know, Maude and her mother were visiting Tyre and Sidan, the twin cities of the Holy Land. They must've kneeled in the wrong place and prayed to the wrong God, because, well, they're being held prisoner by militants of some sort.
  • Homer: Militants, huh? Well, if I were you, I'd kick their asses.
  • Ned: Well, any hoodily-doodle, the embassy says it's just a routine hostage-taking, but I have to drive to Capital City, fill out some forms to get 'em out. Could you possibly watch the kids tonight?

The Homer They Fall[edit]

  • The Homer v. Tatum bout is a reference to the film Rocky. Where a local champion faces the heavyweight champion.
  • The title of this episode alludes to the 1956 movie The Harder They Fall, the last film starring Humphrey Bogart. Its plot is the main inspiration for "The Homer They Fall". Bogart plays a washed up, cynical sports writer who agrees to lend his services to a criminal boxing promoter (played by Rod Steiger) by writing stories that make a star out of an untalented, naive Latino boxer whose fights - unbeknownst to him - are all fixed. When that system doesn't work any more and the boxer is about to be thrashed for good in what would surely be his last fight, Bogart's conscience reawakes. He helps the boxer escape to his home country of Argentina before the gangsters can take back all the money he won in his short-lived career. Moe's role in this Simpson's episode is in fact a combination of the roles played by Steiger and Bogart in the movie.
  • The character of Drederick Tatum is based on real life boxer Mike Tyson and his many run-ins with the law. Just before the fight with Homer, Drederick is seen walking to the ring with a group of shady looking characters walking behind him. This is also based on a real-life photo of Tyson.
  • The character of Lucius Sweet is an obvious parody of Don King, a vicious boxing promoter. Homer even points this out with the line "He's one of the biggest names in boxing! He's exactly as rich and as famous as Don King, and he looks just like him, too!" King was also the manager for Mike Tyson.
  • The montage of Homer's victories mid-episode spoofs Raging Bull. Some controversy has arisen about what song is exactly played during Homer's montage. DVD commentary of the episode has attributed the song to an original Alf Clausen composition. Some people[who?] alternatively have stated that it is "The Flower Duet" from Delibes' opera Lakmé. However, their is no passage in "The Flower Duet" song that convincingly matches up with the boxing montage scene but it can be said that the song is done in the style and semblance of "The Flower Duet."
  • A lot of the training sequences are based on the movie Rocky, including Homer running alongside Moe, Marge asking Moe not to let Homer fight and the line "You will always be a loser".
  • At one point in the episode, the screen freezes and turns to a black and white view of one of Homer's boxing opponents falling out of the ring. This scene is a parody of the 1924 painting Dempsey and Firpo by George Bellows.
  • Drederick Tatum's theme song is "Time 4 Sum Aksion" by Redman. It is the same song chosen by Mike Tyson for his first fight upon his prison release.
  • Homer's theme song is "Why Can't We Be Friends?" by War. He also comes in wearing a robe labeled "Opponent"

The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show[edit]

  • Happy Days – Roy addressing Homer and Marge as "Mr. S" and "Mrs. S" is a reference to how Fonzie and the teen-aged characters addressed Howard and Marion Cunningham on Happy Days. Poochie also claims to be "a third Fonzarelli".
  • Joe Camel – another character Poochie claims to be based on.
  • The "Wayne's World" sketches and movie – Poochie shouts "NOT!", much like Wayne Campbell.
  • Three's Company – Roy's announcement that he's "moving out to live with two sexy ladies" is a reference to the ABC sitcom.
  • Unnecessary addition of new characters to veteran TV shows – The addition of the Poochie character to The Itchy & Scratchy Show (and the unexplained presence of Roy in the subplot) spoofs the addition of new characters to veteran TV shows in their waning years, with the belief that viewer interest will be renewed. However, the result is often negative, and is often cited by fans as a moment when the show has jumped the shark.
  • The scene where Homer hides in a closet and secretly listens to a conversation in the conference room is a reference to a 1991 incident at NBC when Jay Leno hid in a storage closet secretly listening to NBC executives discuss who would take over The Tonight Show when Johnny Carson retires.

The Old Man and the Lisa[edit]

The Secret War of Lisa Simpson[edit]

The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase[edit]

The Springfield Files[edit]

  • The aliens featured in the FBI lineup were:
  • Moe hides Shamu in the back room of Moe's Tavern, and immediately worries when agents Mulder and Scully appear at the bar, telling his accomplices that "They're on to us, get him back to Sea World!" He is later seen towards the end of the episode trying to move the whale on his back, asking "Who'd have thought a whale could be so heavy?".
  • Donkey Kong is seen at the beginning of the episode outside the Noiseland Arcade. In anger at the lack of crowds he throws a barrel at the arcade owner.
  • Homer believes that a man named Apollo Creed single-handedly built a rocket and flew to the moon. While Apollo Creed is a character from the Rocky films, Project Apollo was responsible for landing humans on the moon in 1969, 1971, and 1972.
  • Homer's idea of using a looped video recording to leave work early is a reference to the film Speed. However, he wrongly thinks the film was called "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down", despite mentioning the word "speed" several times in his description.
  • A spoof of Better Homes and Gardens magazine is shown, as Better Homes Than Yours.
  • The "dog birthday" gag is almost word-for-word identical to one featured earlier in an episode of Married... with Children.
  • The opening sequence is a spoof of Plan 9 from Outer Space.
  • In one of the arcade scenes, Milhouse plays a video game version of Kevin Costner's Waterworld where he puts 40 quarters in and accomplishes nothing. This is a reference to how Waterworld was a flop, despite its big budget.
  • In one chapter title, the phrase "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is a quotation from The Shining.
  • Kent Brockman previews a news story about a man who went into a coma when The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour was still on TV.
  • Jimbo Jones is seen holding a sign asking the alien for Pearl Jam tickets.
  • Mr. Largo, the school music instructor, conducts five of his students in playing the famous 5-note theme from Close Encounters of the Third Kind with marching band instruments.
  • The Budweiser Frogs appear in the swamp, chanting their names, "Bud... Weis... Er." They are then eaten by an alligator who growls "Coors!"

  • Homer: [mocking] Yeah, they won't learn anything about apples today.

  • Man: Oh, yes. He made light of my weight problem, then suggested my motto be "semper fudge." At that point, he told me to [making quotes with fingers] relax.
  • Burns: How were his test scores?
  • Woman: Let's just say this: he spelled "Yale" with a six.
  • Burns: I see. Well, I -- ooh, you know, I just remembered, it's time for my annual donation. [brings out checkbook and pen] I wonder how much I should give.
  • Man: Well, frankly, test scores like Larry's would call for a very generous contribution. [opens book] For example, a score of 400 would require a donation of new football uniforms, 300, a new dormitory, and in Larry's case, we would need an international airport.
  • Woman: Yale could use an international airport, Mr. Burns.
  • Burns: Are you mad?! I'm not made of airports! Now get out!

  • Larry: Nah... I know what I gotta do. I gotta clean up my act. No more joking around all the time. No more slacking off at work. And most important, no more booze! [throws down glass of alcohol] I know I can do it.
  • [later...]
  • Burns: [reading a letter] "Your son has been kidnapped."
  • Wiggum: All right, Mr. B. When the kidnappers call with the ransom demand, you tell them you'll leave the money under the big net in the park.
  • Lou: And then down comes the net, right, Chief?
  • Wiggum: Heyyy, I like it! I like it a lot!
  • Burns: Ahoy-hoy?
  • Homer: [speaking through a kazoo] Hello, Mr. Burns. This is the kidnapper. Do you miss your son?
  • Burns: Yes, I'm missing one son. Return it immediately!
  • Homer: If you really love Larry, prove it, and you can have him back today.
  • Burns: Oh, how much proof do you need? 5,000? 6,000? I swear, that's all I've got.
  • Homer: Don't you care about your son?! This is more important than money!
  • Burns: More important than money? Who is this?
  • Homer: Uh...[panics, loses control of the phone] Just a second.[hangs up]
  • Wiggum: Beautiful. Eddie, did you trace the phone number?

  • Marge: Homer, give yourself up.
  • Bart: No dad, shoot your way out.

  • Marge Bart and Lisa: AAAAHHHH!!!!!!!
  • Kent Brockman: A bloody end for Homer Simpson... is just one of several possible outcomes according to our computer simulation. Now here's how it would look if the police killed him with a barrage of baseballs.
    Homer: [Unseen, on the TV, being pelted with baseballs] Uh! Ah! Oh! Uh! [Whiny] Stop it!
  • Larry: Hey, I'm looking for this guy. Anybody know who he is?
  • Bart: Yeah, sure, we know him. That's Mr. Burns.
  • Lisa: He tried to kill our puppies.
  • Marge: He sexually harassed me.
  • Grandpa: He stole my fiancee.
  • Homer: He made fun of my weight.
  • Larry: Okay, so there's been a little friction. Know his address?

  • Homer: [slyly] "Maybe I do, son. Maybe I do."
  • Chief Wiggum: "Afternoon, Homer. Care for some chili? I've added an extra ingredient just for you. The merciless peppers of Quetzlzacatenango! Grown deep within the jungle primeval by the inmates of a Guatemalan insane asylum."
  • Lenny: "They say he carved it himself… from a bigger spoon."

  • Tortoise: (Nods and grins smugly)
  • Homer: I'm a lonely insignificant speck on a has-been planet orbited by a cold, indifferent sun!
  • Homer: Of course everything looks bad if you remember it.
  • Homer: (Mid-hallucination) When I'm kicking you that means hurry up.
  • Homer: (Mid-hallucination) Ahh, ghost train and so little time to get out of the way. Now less. Now None.
  • Homer: Okay, Homer, retrace your steps. Woke up, fought with Marge, ate Guatemalan insanity peppers...
  • Homer: (on the phone) Hello, is this GBM? It says in your personal ad that you're looking for a soul mate, well, I also like rainy days and movies. [pause] No, I don't like that... (uncomfortably) or that. It's not that I'm afraid, (quickly) I'm gonna hang up now, bye!

  • Maude Flanders (In response to Edna's defense of her and Principal Skinner's relationship as love) : "Excuse me, Edna, but we're not talking about "love" here. We are 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!"
  • Skinner: We're not coming out until our jobs are reinstated and you acknowledge and celebrate our love.
  • Chalmers: No one would like to celebrate your love more than I. But I'm a public official and am not allowed to use my own judgement in any way.
  • Edna: Then let us take our case directly to the townspeople!
  • Chalmers: Oh yeah, that'll be real productive. Who do you wanna talk to first? The guy in the bumblebee suit or the one with the bone through his hair?
  • Sideshow Mel: My opinions are as valid as the next man's!
  • Skinner: (steps outside the school) I...have a bomb! (opens his coat, revealing hot dogs taped around his chest in the style of a bomb pack)
  • Chief Wiggum: Wait a minute, those are just hot dogs. Armour hot dogs!
  • Chalmers: What kind of man wears Armour hot dogs?!

Homer vs. the Eighteenth Amendment[edit]

  • Mrs. Lovejoy and all the women enter Moe's tavern.
  • Wiggum: Uh-oh. This doesn't look good. I'll fix it with my old Wiggum charm. (Wiggum walks up to Mrs Lovejoy drunkly.)
  • Mrs. Lovejoy: (Gasps and screams) PERVERT!!!
  • Homer: (wearing a barrel on his head) Look at me! I'm the Prime Minister of Ireland!
  • Mayor Quimby: "You can't seriously want to ban alcohol. It tastes great, makes women appear more attractive, and makes a person virtually invulnerable to criticism."
  • Helen Lovejoy: "Oh, won't somebody please think of the children?."
  • Police Officer (Eddie): "I don't know why people are always badmouthing the Mafia."
  • Rex Banner: "Pet shop, eh? Well, I just have one question. What kind of pet shop is filled with rambunctious yahoos and hot jazz music at one AM?"
  • Moe: "Um... the best damn pet shop in town!"
  • All: "Yeah!!" (At this point, everybody charges their glasses, then quickly hide them behind their backs again with a "water drop" sound effect)
  • Rex Banner: Well you all remember. Baby turtles and alligators may seem like a cute idea for a pet...but they grow up.
  • Mayor Quimby: "Who are you to demand anything? I run this town. You're just a bunch of low-income nobodies!"
  • Mayor's Staff: "Uh, election in November. Election in November..."
  • Mayor Quimby: "What? Again? This stupid country."
  • Homer: "We're going out, Marge! If we don't come back, avenge our deaths!"
  • Marge: "All right."
  • Bart: "Dad! Knocking over gravestones is bad luck!"
  • Homer: "Really? I heard good."
  • Rex Banner: "Listen, rummy, I'm gonna say it plain and simple. Where'd you pinch the hooch? Is some blind tiger jerking suds on the side?"
  • Barney: (lost) "...yes...?"
  • Barney: (after Moe turns the pet shop back into his bar) "Ow. Those gears down there really hurt."
  • Rex Banner: "It's not up to us to decide which laws to obey. If it were, I'd kill anyone who looked at me cock-eyed."
  • Homer: (after Springfield has been sober for only .75 days) "Glad to see you're back in business, Moe."
  • Moe: "Yeah, that was a scary couple of hours."
  • Rex Banner: "You're out there Baron, and I'm going to find you."
  • Homer: (in the distance) "No you won't."
  • Rex Banner: "Yes I will."
  • Homer: (in the distance) "D'oh."
  • Moe: "Homer, ya gotta get me more beer!"
  • Homer: "Sorry, I'm all out. How 'bout some Turpentine? Or caulk? Delicious caulk."
  • Homer: (exits the basement with Bart, pushing a wheelbarrow of his beer-filled bowling balls): "Wait. I forget to check if the coast is clear. Oh, I'm sure it's clear; let's go."
  • (as they walk, they see Marge and Lisa. Homer screams, dropping the wheelbarrow and revealing the balls' alcohol contents)
  • Marge: "Beer!"
  • Homer: "I can explain, Marge. Please let me explain! Oh God, why won't you let me explain!?"
  • Marge: "You're the one the papers are talking about, the mysterious "Beer Baron" who's supplying Springfield with alcohol. How have you been getting away with this?"
  • Homer: "Well, and I can explain, remember: I fill the balls with beer that I found at the dump, then I bowl them and some underground pipes carry them and bring them into Moe's."
  • Marge: "Homer...that's very clever!"
  • Homer: "Really?"
  • Bart: "Huh?"
  • Lisa: "Mom?"
  • Marge: "Well it is. I've only known your father since high school and this is the cleverest thing he's ever done. Besides, he's only breaking a silly two-hundred year old law."
  • Homer: "It is silly, Marge. And look at all the money I'm making!" (flashes money at Marge, who makes an impressed sound)
  • Lisa: "Mom! Prohibition might be unpopular, but it's the law and we must always..."
  • Homer, Marge, and Bart: "GO TO YOUR ROOM, LISA!!"
  • Moe: "There ya go, Barn. That'll be forty-five bucks."
  • Barney: "Forty-five bucks!? Well, this better be the best tasting beer in the world!" (takes drink) "You got lucky!"
  • Homer: "To alcohol! The cause of, and solution to, all of life's problems."
  • Rex Banner (grabbing Comic Book Guy): "Are you the Beer Baron?"
  • Comic Book Guy: "Yes, but only by night. By day, I'm a mild mannered reporter for a major metropolitan newspaper."
  • Rex Banner: "Don't crack wise with me, tubby!"
  • Comic Book Guy: "Tubby? Oh yes, tubby."
  • Homer: (passing by with toy wagon full of beer ingredients) "Hey, Banner, how's it hanging'?"
  • Rex Banner: "None of your business."

In Marge We Trust[edit]

  • Mr. Sparkle: (in Japanese) I'm disrespectful to dirt. Can you see that I am serious?
  • Mr. Sparkle: (in Japanese) Out of my way, all of you. This is no place for loafers! Join me or die! Can you do any less?
  • Japanese Women: (in Japanese) What a brave corporate logo! I accept the challenge of Mr. Sparkle.
  • Woman #1: (in heavily-accented English) Awesoma powa!
  • Akira: (On phone) Hai, Hai, Hai, Bye. (Turns to Homer, Bart and Lisa) Hi!
  • Homer: Akira, can you translate this for me. (shows Akira the box)
  • Akira: [translates from the box] Ah yes, this is a product called Mr. Sparkle, Hey, he looks like you! (laughs)
  • Lisa: What's he saying?
  • Akira: He identifies himself as a magnet for foodstuffs. He boasts that he will banish dirt to the land of wind and ghosts.
  • Marge: Donny?
  • Donny: What?
  • Marge: Did you see a man being chased by some young hooligans?
  • Donny: I see lots of stuff.
  • Lisa: Did you see that?
  • Donny: [pause] Yes.
  • Moe: Hi. I'm calling for Rev. Lovejoy. Who is this?
  • Marge: This is...uh...the Listen Lady.
  • Moe: Yeah well, listen, lady! I've got so many problems I don't know where to begin.
  • Marge: Why don't you start from the top?
  • Moe: Okay, uh, Number One, I've lost the will to live.
  • Marge: That's ridiculous, Moe! You've got lots to live for.
  • Moe: Really? That's not what Rev. Lovejoy's been telling me! Thanks! (hangs up, then calls back) Hi, it's me again. This one's about my cat. (Moe's cat groans off-camera) (to his cat) Yeah, shut up! I'm askin' her!
  • Agnes: Seymour, I'm tired! Tell them we're going next!
  • Skinner: I'm not principal of the line, mother!
  • Agnes: And you never will be.
  • (Rev. Lovejoy meets Ned for the first time)
  • Ned: Uh, Reverend, I have bit of a pickle here.
  • Lovejoy: Well, sit down and rap with me, brother. That's what I'm here for.
  • Ned: The other night I got talked into doing this dance called "The Bump", but my hips slipped and my...buttocks came into contact with the...buttocks of another young man!
  • Ned (calling Lovejoy and Helen while they are in Paris): I think I swallowed a toothpick!
  • Bart: Hey Dad, if they have a picture of you, that means they can see you! They're probably watching us right now!
  • Marge: That's ridiculous! No one is watching us.
  • (the family goes into an awkward silence as they look around at each other)
  • Lovejoy: (disgruntled by letter selection while filling marquee) Can you believe it? They give you five "Q"s and only two "U"s. What a world.
  • Homer: We're gonna get rid of the old Christmas tree. (shows the brown, wrinkled tree) It's starting to turn brown.
  • Skinner (calling Lovejoy): Mother's gone too far! She's put cardboard over her half of the television. We rented Man Without a Face; I didn't even know he had a problem! What should I do?
  • Lovejoy: Well, maybe you should read your Bible.
  • Skinner: Um, any particular passage?
  • Lovejoy: Oh, it's all good.
  • Skinner: Alright, thanks anyway.
  • (after the mystery of the Mr. Sparkle logo has been solved)
  • Lisa: Hey...it was all a coincidence.
  • Bart: Yep, there's your answer, fishbulb.
  • Homer: (numbly) Well, it was a good ride while it lasted. Come on, kids, let's go home.
  • Bart: We are home.
  • Homer: That was fast.
  • Reverend Lovejoy: You heathen baboons!

Lisa's Date with Density[edit]

  • (As Dolph, Jimbo, and Kearney come upon Nelson and Lisa kissing)
  • Dolph: Oh, man! You kissed a girl!
  • Jimbo: That is so gay!
  • Wiggum: That's an auto-dialer machine. This boozebag used it in a telemarketing scam. Now, he's gonna rot in the slammer for the next twenty years: bread and water, icy showers, guards whompin' your ass around the clock, and the only way out...is suicide.
  • Homer: (runs down the stairs after hearing gunshots): Hey, who shot my auto-dialer! (notices the police right behind him): I mean, Marge's auto-dialer (sheepishly shoves the bullet-riddled auto-dialer to the side).
  • Wiggum: See you in court, Simpson! (Wiggum hands Homer a summons): Oh, and, uh, bring that evidence with ya. Otherwise, I have no case and you go scot-free.
  • Mr. Largo: Miss Simpson, do you find something funny about the word tromboner?
  • Lisa: *snicker* No, sir. I was laughing at something outside.
  • Sherri: She was looking at Nelson!
  • Class: Lisa likes Nelson!
  • Milhouse: She does not!
  • Class: Milhouse likes Lisa!
  • Janey: He does not!
  • Class: Janey likes Milhouse!
  • Uter: She does not!
  • Class: Uter likes Milhouse!
  • Mr. Largo: Nobody likes Milhouse! Lisa! Detention!
  • Marge: Well, Lisa, most women will tell you you're a fool to think you can change a man, but those women are quitters!
  • Lisa: What?
  • Marge: When I first met your father, he was loud, crude, and piggish. But I worked on him, and now he's a whole new person.
  • Lisa: Mom...?
  • Marge: He's a whole...new...person, Lisa.
  • (A note is being passed along the tables to Nelson. He gets it and unfolds it, and reads 'Guess who likes you'. He looks back and sees Milhouse raising his eyebrows. The next scene shows being taken out of the school with a bloodied nose and broken glasses on a stretcher)
  • Lisa: Oh, Milhouse, I'm so sorry!
  • Paramedic: He can't hear you now. We had to pack his ears with gauze.
  • Willie (watering the bushes): And that's how Willie waters. Now you take the "hoose". (sic)
  • Nelson: The "moose"?
  • Willie: The hoose! The hoose!
  • Nelson (takes the hose): Is...this right? (begins spraying Willie)
  • Willie: Ah! Turn off the "noozle"! (sic)
  • Nelson: The "noodles"? What noodles?
  • Willie: The "noozle" on the end of the "hoose"!
  • Skinner (while searching each child's locker for Superintendent Chalmers' missing hood ornament): You kids all think this is funny, don't you? Well, I'll tell you something that's not funny: right now, Superintendent Chalmers is at home crying like a little girl!
  • (the kids all break out into laughter)
  • Skinner: Actually, that is pretty funny (chuckles).
  • Ned(Sleepy): Howdily-diddely.
  • Homer(on the phone):Greetings, friends. Do you wish to look...
  • Ned: (hangs up) Oh, it's that darn recording again.
  • Maude: Of course it was. It's been calling all night. Just unplug the phone. (Ned turns out the light -- the phone rings again)
  • Ned: Howdily-di...
  • Homer: Greetings, friends... (Ned hangs up)
  • Ned: Dang!
  • Maude: I told you to unplug the phone.
  • Ned: But it could be my mother! (the phone rings)
  • Ned: Howdy...
  • Homer: Greetings, friends...
  • Ned: (hangs up) Shoot!
  • Maude: That is it, Ned! If you don't unplug that phone right now, you're sleeping on the lawn.
  • Homer(outside his window): Will you two shut up?! People are trying to sleep!
  • Apu: A Mounds bar is not a sprinkle. A twizzler is not a sprinkle. A Jolly Rancher is not a sprinkle, sir. Perhaps in Shangri-La they are, but not in here.

Mountain of Madness[edit]

  • Homer: So, Burns is gonna make us all go on a stupid corporate retreat up in the mountains to learn about teamwork. Which means we'll have to cancel our plans to hang around here.
  • Bart: Teamwork is overrated.
  • Homer: Huh?
  • Bart: Think about it. I mean, what team was Babe Ruth on? Who knows.
  • Lisa and Marge: Yankees.
  • Bart: Sharing is a bunch of bull, too. And helping others. And what's all this crap I've been hearing about tolerance?
  • Homer: Hmm. Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
  • (This line is often quoted online as a response to internet flaming.)
  • Smithers: What time is it?
  • Bart: Twelve eighty. No wait. What comes after twelve?
  • Smithers: One.
  • Bart: No, after twelve.
  • Smokey: Only who can prevent forest fires? (Bart presses a button labelled "you") You've pressed "you", referring to me. That is incorrect. The correct answer is you!
  • Lisa: Mr. Smithers! Mr. Smithers! That moose is on fire!
  • Homer: Mr. Burns, I insist that we cheat!
  • Burns: Excellent.
  • Carl (reaching the ranger station): There's no other cabin around for miles. This must be the one Burns was talking about.
  • Lenny: Well, we made it first, thanks to teamwork.
  • Carl: Yeah, my teamwork!
  • Burns: Who knows I might be the one to get fired. (under breath) Not bloody likely.
  • Smithers (pairing the workers): Simpson...and...Burns?
  • Homer: Ah.
  • Homer's brain: Quiet, you fool. You're on the one team that can't possibly be fired.
  • Homer: Oh.
  • Smithers: Sir, this can't be right. You assured me this drawing was rigged so we'd be teammates.
  • Burns: Yes, well, frankly you've been a bit of a pill lately.
  • Smithers: Why do we always fight on vacation?
  • Homer: Oh, these sure are comfortable chairs.
  • Burns: Oh yes, sitting--the great leveler. From the mightiest pharaoh to the lowliest peasant, who doesn't enjoy a good sit?
  • Burns: Well, Simpson, I must say after you've been through something like that with a person, you never want to see that person again.
  • Homer: You said it, ya weirdo!
  • (the two laugh, then exchange paranoid glances. They laugh again and then exchange paranoid looks once more.)
  • Homer: Dear Lord, please protect this rocket house and all who dwell within the rocket house.
  • Burns: What's a good time for a mass evacuation of the plant?
  • Smithers: 45 seconds.
  • Burns: And what's our time so far?
  • Smithers: I don't know, sir, this stopwatch only goes up to 15 minutes.
  • Homer: (gasping for air) I think I won.
  • Burns: Yes, you won alright. You won more than you bargained for.
  • Homer: WooHoo!!!
  • Lenny: Did you hear something?
  • Carl: No.
  • Lenny: Did I?
  • Carl: I don't know!
  • (in the cabin, Burns and Homer stare at each other)
  • Burns' brain: I'm trapped with a madman. Look at him, staring into me, filling my mind with paranoid thoughts.
  • Homer's brain: Unn... look at his eyes! He's trying to hypnotize me, but not in the good Las Vegas way!
  • Burns' brain (gasp): I know what he's up to! He's thinking of killing me and riding my carcass down the mountain to safety. He's truly gone mad if he's thinking that. Well, he can't kill me if I kill him first!

Simpsoncalifragilisticexpiala(Annoyed Grunt)cious[edit]

  • Homer: Your mother seems really upset about something. I better go have a talk with her...during the commercial.
  • Lisa: I'll stop buying Malibu Stacy clothing.
  • 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. (gives a dollar bill to Bart)
  • Lisa: But he didn't do anything!
  • Homer: Didn't he, Lisa? Didn't he? Wait, he didn't! (Snatches dollar back from Bart)
  • Moe (after Homer quits his Civil War reenactment society): Well, Homer's out. We gotta find a new Ambrose Burnside.
  • Barney (as Abraham Lincoln): I'm not too crazy about our Stonewall Jackson.
  • Apu (as Jackson, but with a turban): The South shall come again!!
  • Mrs. Pennyfeather: Hello, I'm Mrs. Pennyfeather. I understand you are looking for a nanny.
  • Marge: Pleased to meet you.
  • Homer: Wait a minute, Marge. I saw Mrs. Doubtfire. This is a man in drag! (starts pulling at her hair as if it were a wig) You're phony! Fakey, phony broad! (runs after her) Gimme those!
  • Marge: Homer, we're never going to find a nanny if you keep doing that!
  • Mrs. Pennywinkle: Hello, I'm Mrs. Pennywinkle. (Homer chases her)
  • Shary: Hello, I'm Shary Bobbins.
  • Homer: Did you say Mary Po—?
  • Shary (quickly): No, I definitely did not. I'm an original creation, like Rickey Rouse, or Monald Muck.
  • Homer: Question one: Do you have any bad habits?
  • Shary: No, I'm practically perfect in every way.
  • Homer: Well, so am I. (drinks milk from carton and scratches his behind then belches).
  • Homer: Question two: who was your last employer?
  • Shary: Lord and Lady Huffington of Sussex.
  • Homer (whispering): Marge, do we know them?
  • Marge: No.
  • Homer: Come on! Isn't he the guy I bowl with? The black guy?
  • Marge: That's Carl.
  • Homer: Oh, yeah! (stops whispering, back to Shary) So! I understand you worked for Carl, eh?
  • Marge (after Shary glides up the railing): My, she seems too good to be true!
  • Homer: I'll say. Her butt waxed the banister.
  • Marge: Ooh, I can see myself!
  • Mr. Burns: Bah, humbug.
  • Shary: Oh, Mr. Burns, I think you'll find all life's problems just float away when you're flying a kite. (gives him one)
  • Mr. Burns: Balderdash! This is the silliest load of...(watches his kite) Oh, look at it fly! Whee-hee-hee-hee-hee! Look at me, Smithers! (dark clouds gather ominously) I feel practically Superduperfragicalicexpiala-d'oh! (lightning strikes the kite and shocks Mr. Burns, knocking him to the ground) What's this strange sensation in my chest?
  • Mr. Smithers: I think your heart's beating again.
  • Mr. Burns: Oh, that takes me back. God bless you, Shary Bobbins.
  • Bart: Sing us a song, Shary Bobbins.
  • Lisa: Yes, sing us a song.
  • Shary: I've been singing you songs all day! I'm not a bloody jukebox!
  • Shary: Bart, don't you remember? Cleaning up can be a game.
  • Bart: I got a better game. It's called whipping cupcakes.
  • Lisa (as Shary is floating away): Do you think we'll ever see her again?
  • Homer: I'm sure we will, honey. (Shary is sucked into a passing plane's turbine) I'm sure we will.
  • Groundskeeper Willie: Shary and I were engaged to be wed back in the old country. Then she got her eyesight back, and suddenly the ugliest man in Glasgow wasn't good enough for her.
  • Shary: It's good to see you, Willie.
  • Willie: That's not what you said the first time ye saw me!
  • Quentin Tarantino: What I'm trying to say in this cartoon is that violence is everywhere in our society, you know, it's like even in breakfast cereals, man.
  • Lisa: We have suggestions for the new nanny, would you like to hear them?
  • Homer: You have my undivided attention. (in Homer's brain we see a black and white segment with rubber-hose style animals dancing to "Turkey in the straw".)

The Canine Mutiny[edit]

  • Willie: Yup. I bought your mutt. And I 'ate him! (Bart gasps) I 'ate his little face. I 'ate his guts! And I 'ate the way he's always barkin! So I gave him to the church!
  • Bart: Oh, I see. You hated him so you gave him to the church.
  • Willie: Right. And one more thing, I also 'ate the mess he left on me rug. (Bart stares at him) Ya heard me!
  • Moe: Ya gotta give me back my floor! My customers are walking around on the pipes!
  • Repo guy: Hey, next time pay your bills.
  • Moe: But I don't want to!
  • Homer: You gave both dogs away?! You know how I feel about giving!
  • Random Ship's Officer/Captain: Tell them to put on more dogs.
  • Ship's Chief Engineer: (In Boiler Room) More Dogs!
  • Stoker: (as he puts Santa's Little Helper into a furnace) In you go!

The Homer They Fall[edit]

The Homer They Fall[edit]

  • Homer: "Son, there's only one thing punks like that understand: squealing. You've got to squeal to every teacher and every grown-up you can find. Coming to me was a good start."
  • Drederick: "I think he's a good man, I like him, I got nothing against him, but I'm definitely gonna make orphans of his children."
  • Reporter: "They do have a mother, champ."
  • Drederick: "Yes but I would assume that she would die of grief."
  • Dr. Hibbert: Well, sir, you more than meet every one of this state's requirements to box, wrestle or be shot out of a cannon.
  • Marge: [growls] That's what we get for living in a state founded by circus freaks.
  • Hibbert: You have an absolutely unique genetic condition known only as 'Homer Simpson's Syndrome.'
  • Homer: Oh, why me?
  • Hibbert: Oh, don't worry, it's quite beneficial. Your brain is surrounded by a layer of fluid 1/8th of an inch thicker than normal, it's almost as if you're wearing a football helmet inside your own head. Why, I could whollop you all day long with this surgical two-by-four without ever knocking you down...but I have other appointments."
  • Moe: "If you want to beat up my friend in my bar, there's a two drink minimum".
  • Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, due to popular demand, we will forgo our national anthem. And now, LLLLLLLET'S GET READY TO RUMMMMMMMMMBLLLLLLE!!
  • Homer: [gasps] You know Lucius Sweet?! He's one of the biggest names in boxing! He's exactly as rich and as famous as Don King, and he looks just like him, too!
  • Moe: Yeah, he was my manager. Back when I was Gorgeous, everybody wanted a piece of me. But somehow, I just never made it to the big time.
  • Homer: Why not?
  • Moe: 'Cause I got knocked out forty times in a row. That, plus politics. You know, it's all politics.
  • Homer: [glaring] Lousy Democrats.
  • Marge: Before you even consider this, I insist you consult a doctor.
  • Homer: No problemo. [pecks Marge on the cheek and walks off]
  • Marge: A competent doctor!
  • Homer: [off-screen] D'oh!
  • Moe: Okay, you're fighting a guy named Boxcar Bob.
  • Homer: Brawled his way up from the boxcars, did he?
  • Moe: Uh, no, not yet, he still lives at the trainyard. But he's a hungry young fighter. In fact, he's actually fighting for a sandwich. (Moe blows dust off of his boxing gloves and gives them to Homer) Homer, I want you to have my lucky mits. I hope you do better with them than I did.
  • Homer: [donning them] Gee, thanks, Moe. What's this?
  • Moe: Ah, that's the barbed wire. We, uh, we called that the stinger. They, they don't let you use that no more.
  • Barney: Man, you'd never get me into a ring. Boxing causes brain damage. [drinks varnish]
  • Moe: Back then, they called me "Kid Gorgeous." Then it was "Kid Presentable." Then "Kid Gruesome." And finally, "Kid Moe."

The Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show[edit]

  • {{Cleanup|date=October 2006}}
  • Lisa: Um, excuse me sir, the thing is, there's nothing wrong with Itchy and Scratchy. It's as good as ever. But after so many years, the characters don't have the same impact they once had.
  • Meyers: That's it. That's it, little girl! You've saved Itchy & Scratchy!
  • Blue-Haired Lawyer: Please sign these papers indicating that you did not save Itchy & Scratchy.
  • Man at survey: How many of you kids would like Itchy & Scratchy to deal with real-life problems, like the ones you face every day? (kids go "Me!" "I would!") And who would like to see them do just the opposite -- getting into far-out situations involving robots and magic powers? (kids go "Me!" "I would!") So, you want a realistic, down-to-earth show...that's completely off-the-wall...and swarming with magic robots? (kids agree)
  • Milhouse: And also, you should win things by watching.
  • The light behind the two-way mirror switches on, revealing Roger Meyers, Jr.
  • Meyers, Jr.: You kids don't know what you want! That's why you're still kids! 'Cause you're stupid! Just tell me what's wrong with the freakin' show!!
  • Roger Meyers Jr. (to the "Itchy and Scratchy" writers): I have figured out how to rejuvenate the show. It's so simple, you egghead writers would've never thought of it! What we need is... a new character! One that today's kids can relate to!
  • [writers look at each other, uncertain]
  • Oakley: Are you absolutely sure that's wise, sir? I mean, I don't want to sound pretentious here, but Itchy and Scratchy comprise a dramaturgical dyad.
  • Krusty: Hey, this ain't art -- it's business! Whaddya got in mind? Sexy broad? Gangster octopus?
  • Meyers: No, no. The animal chain of command goes mouse, cat, dog. [to the writers] D-O-G.
  • Weinstein: Uh, a dog? Isn't that a tad predictable?
  • Lady (prototype Lindsay Naegle): In your dreams. We're talking the original dog from hell.
  • Oakley: You mean Cerberus?
  • Lady: We at the network want a dog with attitude. He's edgy, he's "in your face." You've heard the expression "let's get busy"? Well, this is a dog who gets "biz-zay!" Consistently and thoroughly.
  • Krusty: So he's proactive, huh?
  • Lady: Oh, God, yes. We're talking about a totally outrageous paradigm.
  • Meyer: Excuse me, but "proactive" and "paradigm"? Aren't these just buzzwords that dumb people use to sound important? [backpedaling] Not that I'm accusing you of anything like that. [pause] I'm fired, aren't I?
  • Meyers: Oh, yes. Now, the rest of you start writers thinking up a name for this funky dog; I dunno, something along the line of say... Poochie, only more proactive.
  • Krusty: Yeah!
  • [Meyers, Krusty and the Lady leave]
  • Oakley: So, Poochie okay with everybody?
  • All: [reclining in their chairs] Yeah...sure. It's cool.
  • Ned (after "The Beagle Has Landed"): Homer, I can honestly say that was the best episode of "Impy and Chimpy" I've ever seen!
  • Carl: Yeah, you should be very proud, Homer, you, uh... got a beautiful home here.
  • Comic Book Guy: Last night's "Itchy and Scratchy" was, without a doubt, the worst episode ever! Rest assured I was on the internet within minutes voicing my disgust throughout the world.
  • Homer: Now, kids, I know you liked the old Poochie. (Bart and Lisa look at each other) But I promise the new one will be better than ten Super Bowls! I don't want you to over-think it. Judge for yourself.
  • (in the cartoon, Itchy is using a rusty chainsaw to cut up Scratchy, who is encased in ice. Poochie appears)
  • Scratchy: Look who it is!
  • Itchy: Hello, Poochie. You look like you have something to say. Do you?
  • Poochie (in Homer's voice): Yes, I certainly do! (in Roger Meyers Jr.'s voice) I have to go now. My planet needs me.
  • (the animation cel is lifted up, creating the illusion of Poochie moving up in to the sky. A handwritten note appears saying "Poochie died on the way back to his home planet")
  • Bart: Wow. Poochie came from another planet?
  • Lisa: I guess.
  • Homer: Hey, that wasn't supposed to happen! They ripped me off!
  • Krusty: Poochie's dead! (laughs as the studio audience goes wild) Well kids, we all know that sometimes when cartoon characters die, they're back again the very next week. That's why I'm presenting this sworn affidavit that Poochie will never, ever, ever return!
  • Lawyer: This document conforms to all applicable laws and statutes. (kids cheer)
  • Homer: You guys liked it, right?
  • Bart: Mom, can we go to bed without dinner?
  • Marge: Yes, we can.
  • (Marge, Bart, and Lisa run upstairs and slam their doors)
  • Homer: At least I liked it, didn't I?
  • Homer's brain: Well, you don't want to know what I think. Now look sad and say "d'oh".
  • Homer (sadly): D'oh.
  • Poochie: The name's Poochie-D and I rock the telly
  • I'm half Joe Camel and a third Fonzarelli
  • I'm the kung-fu hippie from gangsta city
  • I'm a rappin' surfer, you da fool I pity!
  • Scratchy (blankly): Wow, Poochie is one outrageous dude.
  • Itchy (blankly): He's totally in my face.
  • Poochie: Catch you on the flipside, dudemeisters. Not! And remember, kids, always recycle, to the extreme! Busted!
  • Bart: It's back to the basics, classic Itchy & Scratchy.
  • Lisa: We should thank our lucky stars that they're still putting on a program of this caliber after so many years.
  • Bart: ... What else is on?
  • (Lisa changes the channel)
  • [a musclebound man in bikini trunks flexes in front of the camera. Nelson slyly turns Milhouse's knob to the right]
  • Milhouse: Hey, quit it!
  • Meyers: [supervising the results behind the mirror] They like Itchy, they like Scratchy, one kid seems to love the Speedo man... what more do they want?

The Old Man and the Lisa[edit]

  • Homer (while in the hospital after his first round of heart attacks): "It's all right. I understand. But we really could've used that twelve thousand dollars."
  • Lisa: "Um, Dad, ten percent of 120 million dollars isn't twelve thousand dollars. It's-" *Cuts to hospital corridor where the loudspeaker goes "Code Blue, Code Blue."*
  • Mr. Burns: "The whole plant is environmentally sound. It's powered by old newspapers, machinery is made entirely of used cans, and the windows are from the old liquor bottles we collected." (to Barney) "Hey! I thought I told you to stop licking my windows!"
  • Barney: "I know you told me. But when I woke up this morning, I said, 'Barney, you're not gonna lick that-'"
  • Homer: "See that, boy? Why aren't you making any business deals?"
  • Bart: "I'll do it this afternoon!"
  • Burns: People, if we meet this week's quota, I'll take you to the most duck-filled pond you ever sat by! (the old folks begin working faster)
  • Grampa: Oh, hot-diggity! That's how they got me to vote for Lyndon LaRouche!
  • Mr. Burns: Ooh don't poo-poo a nickel, Lisa. A nickel will buy you a steak and kidney pie, a cup of coffee, a slice of cheesecake and a newsreel. (Lisa looks unimpressed) With enough change left over to ride the trolley from Battery Park to the Polo Grounds.
  • Lisa: There's a can.
  • Lisa: You haven't changed at all! You're still evil and when you try to change, you're even more evil!
  • Mr. Burns: I don't understand. Pigs need food, engines need coolant, dynamiters need dynamite. I'm supplying it to the world at a tidy profit...and not a single sea creature was wasted. (very creepy) You inspired it all...Li'l Lisa.
  • Bret "Hitman" Hart: Eww! This place has got old man stink!
  • Mr. Burns: Ooh.
  • Smithers: Don't mind him, sir. You have an enchanting musk.
  • (When Lisa asks him about recycling)
  • Mr. Burns: Oooh, 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.
  • Mr. Burns: (checking his stocks) Ah, right where I left off September, 1929 ... oh... oh no... Smithers, why didn't you tell me about this market crash?!
  • Smithers: Um, well...sir, it happened twenty-five years before I was born.
  • Mr. Burns: Oh, that's your excuse for everything!
  • Skinner: (After receiving the recycling money) 32 cents! But that won't even cover the gas that I used to go to the store to buy the twine to tie up the bags!
  • Recycling Hippie: Sounds like you're living for your car. Simplify...man...
  • Lenny (at Burns' desk, he activates the PA): Uh, attention everyone... (pauses) Um, work harder! Bye! (sits back)
  • Mr. Burns: (addressing Homer at the Simpsons' front door) Sir, we've never met before, but my name is Mr. Burns and I want your daughter to help make me rich again.
  • Homer: You mean Maggie? (Maggie stares at Mr. Burns and gestures her hand like a gun aimed at him)
  • Mr. Burns: Ahh -- the baby who shot me -- no, I was referring to your other daughter.
  • Mr. Burns:(Mr. Burns takes down his self-portrait and approaches Bret) Uh, would it be all right if I kept this portrait? To remind me of better times?
  • Bret Hart Why would I want a picture of a pitiful pencil-neck GEEK?!
  • Mr. Burns Yes. Why indeed.
  • Lisa: "Mr. Burns, how does your plant support recycling?"
  • Mr. Burns: "Re-sy-hling?"

The Secret War of Lisa Simpson[edit]

  • Bart (after lining up 15 megaphones in police HQ): "Test-"
  • (Shockwave blows him backwards 20 feet and shatters every window in Springfield)
  • Lisa (after passing the climbing exercise): You thought I couldn't but I could, I did, and I could do it again, let's do it again!
  • Bart: It's OK, Lis, it's over! You did it! You can put your arms down now.
  • Lisa: I can't, they're stuck!
  • Bart: "But if you quit, it'd be like an expert knot-tier quitting a knot-tying contest right in the middle of tying a knot."
  • Lisa: "Why d'you say that?"
  • Bart: "I don't know, I was just looking at my shoelaces."
  • Range Instructor: Since you attended public school, I'm going to assume you're already proficient with small arms. So we're gonna give you something...a little more advanced. (gives Bart a grenade launcher. He then fires and destroys four of the five targets; the fifth missile flies beyond the horizon) Four out of five, Simpson. Impressive. But you missed your last target.
  • Bart (à la James Bond): Did I?
  • (cut to the Springfield Elementary parking lot. Skinner stands frozen next to the smoldering crater that used to be his car)
  • Nelson (inside the school): Ha ha!
  • Mrs. Krabappel (on seeing Bart leave): You dream about this day for so long, then when it comes, you don't know what to say.
  • Skinner: Edna, your tears say more than words ever could.
  • Commandant: All right, let's go over this one more time, just to make sure I understand the situation... you're a girl?!
  • Lisa: Yes.
  • Commandant: [Slumps in despair] I'm sorry, I just don't understand the situation. [Looks up at Lisa] You're a girl?
  • Cadet: Truth is beauty! Beauty truth, sir!
  • Lisa: They're discussing poetry! We never do that at my school.
  • Teacher: But the truth can be harsh and disturbing! How can that be considered beautiful?
  • Marge: They sure sucked the fun out of that poem.
  • Commandant: The wars of the future will not be fought on the battlefield or at sea. They will be fought in space, or possibly on top of a very tall mountain. In either case, most of the actual fighting will be done by small robots. And as you go forth today remember always your duty is clear: To build and maintain those robots. Thank you.
  • Lisa (alone in bed): "I can beat this, Emily Dickinson lived alone and she wrote some of the most beautiful poetry ever known... (despairing): Then went crazy as a loon!

The Simpsons Spin-Off Showcase[edit]

  • Chief Wiggum: Ah, New Orleans. The Big Easy. Sweet Lady Gumbo. Old... Swampy.
  • Ralph Wiggum: Look, Big Daddy, it's Regular Daddy!
  • Big Daddy: Oh no, the Chief! It's times like these I wish I weren't so fat.
  • Barney: Well, I gotta go. I got a date with the lady in front of the drug store who's always yelling things. (leaves)
  • Moe: She told me she was washing her hair tonight. Sigh, I'm so desperately lonely.
  • (canned audience laughter)
  • Kearney: (complaining about the Love Tester) It said I was gay!
  • Grampa: (complaining to Homer) You buried me naked and sold my suit to buy a ping-pong table. What kind of a son—
  • Homer: (unplugs the Love Tester) Call me when you get a karaoke machine.
  • Judge Snyder: I move that the last sketch be stricken from the record.
  • Moe: I need help here.
  • Grampa: Tell her her rump's as big as the Queen's, and twice as fragrant.
  • Moe: ...Okay. (leaves, then comes back suddenly, covered in escargot) You are absolutely, positively, the dumbest haunted love tester that I have ever met!
  • Troy McClure: Welcome back! I'm talking with the curator of the Museum of TV and Television, Mr. John Winslow. (leaves before Winslow can say anything)
  • Announcer: Chief Wiggum, P. I. will return — right now!
  • (Betty tries the Love Tester)
  • Grampa: Lovelorn. You need man. Moe near now. Go near Moe.
  • Betty: What?
  • Moe: "Go near Moe." I'd say that's a pretty strong endorsement.
  • Chef Paul Prudhomme: I guar-an-tee!
  • Skinner: Will you stop saying that?
  • Grampa: Ladies like sweet-talking.
  • Moe: Hey, I'm sweet. I'm sweeter than Jewish wine.
  • Grampa: Then prove it. I want you to charm the next pretty young thing that walks through that door.
  • (Homer suddenly enters the bar to the applause of the studio audience)
  • Homer: Greetings!
  • Troy McClure: Hi, I'm Troy McClure. You may remember me from such TV spinoffs as Son of Sanford and Son and AfterMannix.
  • Big Daddy: You know, boys, there's an old saying down on the bayou that... uh... blah! (returns Ralph to Wiggum and escapes)
  • (Wiggum encounters the Simpsons at Mardi Gras)
  • Wiggum: If it isn't my old friends from Springfield, the Simpsons! What brings you folks to New Orleans?
  • Bart: Mardi Gras, man! When the Big Easy calls, you gotta accept the charges.
  • Lisa: Chief Wiggum, I can't wait to hear about all the exciting, sexy adventures you're sure to have against this colorful backdrop.
  • Wiggum: Well golly, I'd love to chat, but my son's been kidnapped. You haven't seen him, have you? Caucasian male, between the ages of six and ten, thinning hair.
  • Homer: (points to Ralph and Big Daddy) Over there.
  • Wiggum: (answering his phone) Who is this?
  • Skinner: It's me, chief. I'm on the other extension.
  • Moe and Betty: Thanks, Grampa.
  • Grampa: Yeah, yeah, now how's about introducing me to that cute little pay phone out front?

The Springfield Files[edit]

  • Dr. Nick: The most rewarding part was when he gave me my money!
  • Leonard 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."
  • Arcade Owner: (speaking to Donkey Kong) Sorry Donkey Kong, you're just not a draw anymore.
  • (Donkey Kong replies by throwing a barrel at him and bowling him over.)
  • Arcade Owner: Hey! He's still got it!".
  • Milhouse is standing in front of Kevin Costner's Waterworld - the video game in an arcade
  • Milhouse: 38...39...40 quarters! This had better be good!
  • Virtual Kevin Costner takes a single step on screen.
  • Computer game: Game over. Please deposit 40 quarters.
  • Milhouse: What a ripoff! *pause* 1...2...3...4...
  • Mulder: Look at this, Scully: there has been another unsubstantiated UFO sighting in the heartland of America. We've got to get there right away.
  • Scully: Well, gee Mulder, there's also this report of a shipment of drugs and illegal weapons coming into New Jersey tonight.
  • Mulder: (scoffs) I hardly think the FBI is concerned with matters like that.
  • Mulder: Agents Mulder and Scully. (sinister) FBI.
  • Homer: I saw this in a movie about a bus that had to speed around the city, keeping its speed over fifty. And if its speed dropped, the bus would explode! I think it was called... "The Bus That Couldn't Slow *Down."
  • Jasper: Thank God it's Wednesday. (takes his pills)
  • Mrs. Glick: It's Friday.
  • Jasper: Uh-oh. Wrong pills. (hair covers Jasper's entire body) Uh, little help?
  • Homer: The alien has a sweet heavenly voice...like Urkel. And he appears every Friday night...like Urkel.
  • Wiggum: Wow, your story is really compelling Mr. Jackass, I mean Simpson. So I'll just write it up on my invisible typewriter.
  • Homer: You don't have to humilate me!
  • Homer leaves. A charred man flicking a cigarette lighter covered in ash enters.
  • Pyromaniac: I just torched a building downtown and I'm afraid I'll do it again!
  • Wiggum: Yeah Right... Just let me type that up on my invisible typewritter (Wiggum hums to himself). Fruitcake!
  • Rev. Lovejoy: I remember another gentle visitor from the Heavens. He came in peace, and then died, only to come back to life. And his name was...E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. (sniff) I love that little guy.
  • Scully: This is the worst assignment we've ever had.
  • Mulder: Worse than the time we were attacked by the flesh-eating virus?
  • Grandpa:(Grandpa chasing a turtle with his dentures) OW, he bit me with my own teeth!
  • Scully: No, this is much more irritating.
  • Homer: I'll be happy to answer any questions about the alien. Any question at all. Dr. Hibbert?
  • Dr. Hibbert: Yes. Is the alien carbon-based or silicon-based?
  • Homer: Uh, the second one. Sillyfoam. Next question.
  • Barney: Is the alien Santa Claus?
  • Homer: Uh, yeah.
  • Ned: Were you on my roof last night, stealing my weather vane?
  • Homer: This interview is over!
  • (slams the door shut. Ned's weather vane then lands in front of the crowd)
  • Dr. Nick: Don't worry, you won't feel a thing. (holds up a painful looking device) 'Til I jam this down your throat!
  • Homer (holding a "Homer is Right" T-Shirt): Take a look at this, Lisa. You don't see any "Homer is a Dope" T-shirts, do you?
  • Shirt Guy: We sold those out in five minutes.
  • Homer: D'oh! (sees Marge wearing a "Homer is a Dope" shirt) Marge, how could you?
  • Marge: These shirts are 100% cotton and look at the fine stitching on "dope".
  • Homer: I'll take two.
  • Bart: Leonard Nimoy, what are you doing here?
  • Leonard Nimoy: Wherever there is mystery and the unexplained, cosmic forces shall draw me near.
  • Sarcastic middle-aged man: Hey Spock, what do want on your hot dog?
  • Leonard Nimoy: Surprise me.
  • (man slaps a lot of relish on the hot dog)
  • Kent Brockman: The alien has appeared in the same area the last two Friday nights. Will it appear this Friday? The entire Channel 6 News team will be there, except Bill the boom-mic operator who's getting fired tomorrow.
  • (He then gets hit in the head with a boom-mic)
  • Kent (to someone off camera): Very unprofessional, Bill.
  • Leonard Nimoy: And from this simple man came the truth that we are not alone in the universe. I'm Leonard Nimoy. Good night.
  • Squeaky Voiced Teen (off-camera): Uh, Mr. Nimoy, we still have ten minutes left.
  • Leonard Nimoy: Oh, uh, well, let me get something out of my car.
  • (runs off camera; we then hear a car starting and driving off)
  • Squeaky Voiced Teen: I don't think he's coming back.
  • Bart (enters the dining room with spring eyes and a water gun): I am the Thing from Your-anus (sic)!
  • Homer: Oh, it's only Bart. I can't believe it. I'm being mocked by my own children! On my birthday!
  • Bart: It's your birthday?
  • Homer: Yeah. Don't you know? It's the same day as the dog's.
  • Lisa: Santa's Little Helper, it's your birthday?! Oh, we gotta give we a present! Oh yes, we do! (hugs the dog)
  • Bart (hugging the dog): We love you, boy.

  • Marge: Have you been drinking?
  • Homer: No! Well, ten beers.
  • Marge: (grunts)
  • Frogs: Bud... Weis... Er... Bud... Weis...
  • Alligator: (eats the frogs) Coors.
  • Mulder: Are we alone in the universe? Impossible, when you consider the wonders that exist all around us... (much later) voodoo priests of Haiti, the Tibetan numerologists of Appalachia, the unsolved mysteries of Unsolved Mysteries... The truth is out there! (in the background, Moe and his friends carry Shamu the killer whale on their backs)
  • Moe: Oh God. Who would've thought a whale would be this heavy? (sees Mulder looking at them) Cheese it! The Feds! (they run off as the whale groans)
  • (Scully observes Homer running on a treadmill with wires attached to him.)
  • Mulder: Wait a minute Scully, what's the point of this test?
  • Scully: No point. I just thought he could stand to lose a little weight.
  • Mulder: (staring at Homer) His jiggling is almost hypnotic.
  • Scully: Yes, it's like a lava lamp.
  • Homer: Good. If you believe me, then I'm not giving up. This Friday, we'll go into the woods and find that alien!
  • Bart: What if we don't?
  • Homer: We'll fake it and sell it to the Fox network.
  • Bart (laughs): They'll buy anything!
  • Homer: Now, son, they do a lot of quality programming too. (beat, then Homer and Bart burst into laughter)
  • Mr. Burns: A lifetime of working at a nuclear power plant has given me a healthy green glow... and left me as impotent as a Nevada boxing commissioner.
  • Mulder: All right, Homer. We want you to re-create your every move the night you saw this alien.
  • Homer: Well, the evening began at the gentleman's club, where we were discussing Wittgenstein over a game of backgammon.
  • Scully: Mr. Simpson, it's a felony to lie to the F.B.I.
  • Homer: We were sitting in Barney's car eating packets of mustard. There, you happy?
  • (Homer is wired to a polygraph)
  • Scully: Now we're going to run a few tests. This is a simple lie detector. I'll ask you a few yes-or-no questions and you just answer truthfully. Do you understand?
  • Homer: Yes. (polygraph explodes)

The Twisted World of Marge Simpson[edit]

  • Homer: What do you need to make money for anyway? As long as I have my earning power, this family's got nothing to worry about.
  • [hits himself in the eye with a hot dog]
  • Oww! Ohh! Call work and tell 'em I won't be in tomorrow.
  • Frank : Welcome to the dynamic world of mobile pretzel retailing.
  • Marge: When can I start? Where's my territory?
  • Frank Ormand: Your...territory. Uh. Well, lemme tell ya. Wherever a young mother is ignorant of what to feed her baby, you'll be there. Wherever nacho penetration is less than total, you'll be there. Wherever a Bavarian is not quite full, you will be there.
  • Marge: Don't forget fat people. They can't stop eating!
  • Homer: Hey, pretzels!
  • [After the infamous pretzel-throwing incident at the stadium]
  • Bart: Cheer up, Mom. You can't buy publicity like that. Thousands and thousands of people saw your pretzels injuring Whitey Ford!
  • Homer: You could call them Whitey-Whackers.
  • Helen: I don't understand why they won't unload our falafel fixings.
  • Lou: Ship's impounded, Ma'am.
  • Wiggum: Yeah, we, uh, found a couple of barnacles on the hull; that and, uh, the deck was, uh, wet.
  • Helen Lovejoy: That's crazy! And what are those men doing under my van?
  • (a group of mobsters flee from the van)
  • Chief Wiggum: Look, lady, if I was you, I would just leap into the air as I am preparing to do. (They both do so as the Fleet-A-Pita van explodes)
  • Fat Tony: We are your business partners and as such, we are entitled to a percentage of your profits. Something in the area of 100%.
  • Marge: What are you talking about?
  • Fat Tony: We suggest you have a conversation with your husband. You have 24 hours to give us our money and to show we're serious, you have 12 hours. See you at 6 AM.
  • Homer: I saw you pouring your heart and soul into this business and getting nowhere. I saw you desperately trying to cram one more salty treat into America's already bloated snack hole. So I did what I could. I did what any loving husband would do! I reached out to some violent mobsters.
  • [The Investorettes and Yakuza confront Marge and the mob]
  • Edna Krabappel: Well, well, if it isn't Marge Simpson and her gangland cronies.
  • Maude Flanders: Your goon squads certainly gave you the edge in the mobile snack business. But I'm afraid we've outdone you once again. Hiroshi, Yukio... Perhaps you've heard of the Yakuza -- the Poison Fists of the Pacific Rim -- the Japanese mafia.
  • Agnes Skinner: They'll kill ya five times before you hit the ground!
  • Cletus: Hey! Stop right there! Gimme 300 pretzels!
  • Marge: See? All you need a little patience! All right, sir. That'll be $300.
  • Cletus: Not so fast! I got 300 coupons!
  • Marge: I should've said, "Limit: 1 Per Customer."
  • Cletus: Shoulda but didn'ta. Now hands 'em over! Hey kids! We're eatin' dinner tonight! Come on out, Tiffany, Heather, Cody, Dylan, Dermott, Jordan, Taylor, Brittany, Wesley, Rumer, Scout, Cassidy, Zoe, Chloe, Max, Hunter, Kendall, Kaitlin, Noah, Sasha, Morgan, Kira, Ian, Lauren, Q*bert, Phil . (Smiles at Marge)
  • (After being told to go inside while the mobsters and Yakuza fighting each other)
  • Homer: Aww, but Marge, the little one hasn't done anything yet, and you know it's gonna be good! (They step inside, a scream of pain is heard) Awwww.
  • (The little Yakuza flies through the kitchen window, and dusts himself off)
  • Yakuza: Forgiveness Please!
  • (leaves)
  • (During the fake ticker-tape parade)
  • Chief Wiggum: Welcome back, space girl!
  • (Marge arrives at the school loading zone. An unshaven and ragged Skinner appears)
  • Marge: Are you sure the children will get enough nutrition from these pretzels?
  • Skinner (monotonous): Yes I am sure. (a bandaged hand gives Marge money) Sure as sure can be.
  • Marge: Oh my God. What happened to your fingers?
  • Legs (off-camera): Bowling accident.
  • Skinner: I believe it was a... boking accident. (a laser sight is aimed at his temple) I have to go now.
  • Disco Stu (at his "Can't Stop the Learnin'" disco promotion seminar): Did you know that disco record sales were up 400% for the year ending 1976? Now if those trends continue...(Fonzie-style) Ayyyy! (puts his feet, clad in platform shoes, up on his desk. They have glass soles with water and dead fish inside)
  • Homer: Uh, your fish are dead.
  • Disco Stu: Yeah, I know. I...can't get them out of there.

Treehouse of Horror VII[edit]

  • ===The Thing and I===
  • Dr. Hibbert: Yes, I remember Bart's birth well. You never forget anything like (dramatic tone of voice) Siamese twins!
  • Lisa: I believe they preferred to be called "conjoined twins."
  • Dr. Hibbert: And hillbillies preferred to be called "sons of the soil," but it ain't gonna happen!
  • Homer: We'll search out any place a sick solitary misfit might run to!
  • Lisa: I'll start with RadioShack!
  • Homer: Right!
  • Dr. Hibbert (confronting Hugo): You know, Hugo, all these years you've spent here in the attic, why, you've probably never seen yourself in the mirror.
  • (Hibbert holds up a mirror and Hugo looks into it. There is nothing but a frame; Hibbert then punches Hugo in the face)
  • (Bart is tied down)
  • Bart: Aaaaaaaaaaagh, you're crazy
  • Hugo: Maybe, perhaps we all are a little crazy; I know I am. I went mad when they tore us apart. But, I'll be sane again... once I sew us back together.
  • Bart: But you'll kill both of us!
  • Hugo: No it's easy! Look! I've been practicing. I made a pigeon-rat. (shows Bart the pigeon-rat, which tries to fly out the window, but hits the glass, then tries to enter a hole, but fails because of its size). Now, which side do you want to be on? The right or the left?
  • Homer (running up to the attic) We think we saw Hugo at the airport, he was boarding a plane to Switzerland and... (sees Hugo on the floor) ... oh.
  • Dr. Hibbert (Upon seeing Hugo's scar on the left side of his body)
  • What a minute! Hugo's scar is on the wrong side. He couldn't have been the evil left twin. That means the evil twin is, and always has been, Bart!
  • Bart (after everyone finds he's the evil one): Oh, don't look so shocked.
  • (Family is gathering at dinner table, where Dr. Hibbert is cutting some turkey)
  • Dr. Hibbert: Heh, Heh. Care for a drumstick Hugo? (Hugo then engords the drumstick as well as his own napkin)
  • Lisa: Mom, Hugo's eating his napkin. (Everyone at the table then laughs)
  • Bart: (peeping in from the attic air duct) Hey can I have some turkey
  • Marge: Ooh!!! You finish your fisheads, then we'll talk (Marge then closes the vent)
  • ===The Genesis Tub===
  • Bart: (walking into Lisa's room with a balloon in his hair) Hey, Lisa! Check out my science project.
  • Lisa: (getting zapped by Bart) Ow! What's that supposed to prove?
  • Bart: That nerds conduct electricity. (zaps Lisa again and runs out of her room laughing)
  • Lisa: (looking at her tooth) Tiny little people?! Oh my God! I've created life!
  • Marge: Lisa, breakfast! We're having waffles!
  • Lisa: Ooh, waffles! (goes downstairs) Wait, these aren't waffles! They're just square pancakes!
  • Marge: Sorry. The waffle iron's still in the shop.
  • Lisa (returns to her room): Stupid waffle iron. It's been in the shop forever. (looks into microscope) So, how are my little stone age dwellers? Oh my God! They're evolving so fast, they've already reached the Renaissance. Wait, one of them is nailing something to the door of the cathedral. I've created Lutherans!
  • Mayor-type figure: Welcome to our world, most gracious Lisa.
  • Lisa: Your world is incredible! And you speak English?
  • Mayor: We have listened to you since the dawn of time, Oh Creator, (the mayor bows a little) and we have learned to imatoot you exartly. (The audience in front of Lisa's throne bow in homage, revealing a large statue.)
  • Lisa: You think I'm God?
  • Mayor: But of course! You look down at us from Heaven, you gave us life, and only your divine wisdom can save us from the Devil.
  • Lisa: The devil? What devil?
  • Mayor: (whispering) The one you call Bart.
  • (Upon hearing the name of the unholy one, the people cover their ears and moan)
  • Lisa: Oh no, no, no, you don't understand. Bart's just my brother.
  • Mayor: (shocked) The Devil is your brother? We find this most perplexing!
  • Lisa: Oh, great. I'm stuck in this lousy tub for the rest of my life. Shouldn't you people be grovelling? (the people do) And bring me some shoes. Nice ones.
  • Man: She'll want some socks, too. I'll get socks.
  • ===Citizen Kang===
  • Marge: I still don't understand why we have to build a ray gun to aim at a planet I've never even heard of.
  • Homer: Don't blame me. I voted for Kodos. (he is whipped by an alien)
  • President Clinton (getting abducted): Huh? What's happening? Is it noon already?
  • Kodos: (as President Clinton) Ladies and gentlemen, when I was a young boy I dreamed of being a baseball. But tonight I say we must move forward, not backward, upward, not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom! (coincidentally, Tony Blair, a fan of the Simpsons, who appeared in a later Simpsons' episode, made his 2005 election campaign slogan 'Forwards not backwards')
  • Homer: Oh, no. Aliens, bio-duplication, nude conspiracies. Oh, my God. Lyndon LaRouche was right!
  • Kodos/Clinton: What? Are you still here?
  • Kang/Dole: I'm afraid we must dispose of you!
  • (he presses a button; a large device emerges which sprays Homer with fluid)
  • Homer: What are you spraying me with?
  • Kang/Dole: Rum! So no one will believe your story!
  • (Kodos kicks Homer out of their flying saucer)
  • Kodos/Clinton: And don't come back.
  • (after the aliens have been revealed to the crowd at the White House)
  • Kang: It's a two-party system. You have to vote for one of us!
  • Man: Well then, I believe I'll vote for a third party candidate!
  • Kang: Go ahead! Throw your vote away! Ahahahaha!
  • ( Everyone then begins to question this comment, and Ross Perot angrily removes his straw "Perot 96" hat and punches it.)
  • Homer: Oh no, space aliens! Don't eat me! I have a wife and kids. Eat them!
  • Kang: SILENCE! We come from by a near-by ringed planet we prefer not to mention.
  • Kang: Abortions for all!
  • (Crowd boos)
  • Kang: Very well, no abortions for anyone!
  • (Crowd boos)
  • Kang: Hmm... Abortions for some, miniature American flags for others!
  • (Crowd cheers and waves miniature flags)
