Seasons 2-8 are so eminently quotable we could be here for weeks.

Re: The Simpsons

One of my favorite episodes, "Bart After Dark" has some great lines.
(Forgive my quoting, it's all from memory)

TV Announcer: "It's Eleven O'Clock. Do you know where your children are?"
Homer: "For the last time, no! Where is Bart anyway? His food is getting cold... and eaten."

Belle: "Are you wearing a grocery bag?
Homer: "I have misplaced my pants."

Skinner: "Ah, there's no justice like angry mob justice"
Lenny: "I'm going to burn all the historical memorabilia!"
Moe: "I'm going to steal me a toilet!"
Willy: "Ach, there better be two!"

Re: The Simpsons

My all-time favourite Marge quote is from "The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson":

"Mmmm.... if only I didn't already have a pair of shoes..."

Re: The Simpsons

Some of my favourite Mr. Burns quotes:

"If only we'd listened to that boy...instead of walling him up in the abandoned coke oven"

"Since the beginning of time, man has yearned to destroy the sun..."

"Ah, yes, Simpson. I'll have my lunch now. A single pillow of shredded wheat, some steamed toast...and a dodo egg."
"But I think the dodo went ex-"
"Get going! And answer those phones, install a computer system, and rotate my office so the window faces the hills!"

That one's full of great lines, including possibly my favourite musical number, the "Checkin' In" song: "I should put you away/Where you can't kill or maim us/But this is LA/And you're rich and faaamous!"

Season 10's Behind the Laughter has a lot of great bits along those lines: "But was the dream really over? Yes, it was. Or was it?"

Re: The Simpsons

"Come gather 'round children, it's high time ye learns
'Bout a hero named Homer and a devil named Burns
We'll march 'til we drop, the girls and the fellas
We'll fight 'til the death or else fold like umbrellas."


"Last Exit to Springfield" is probably my favourite episode. That song's one of the many reasons why.
