Re: The Simpsons

I know someone mentioned The Cartridge Family upthread, and that it wasn't as good, but I do have to say one of the best lines in the series was said by Homer in that one:

Homer: "When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power…like God must feel when he’s holding a gun."

I love that!

One of my favorite lines from "Krusty Gets Kancelled":

Snake: "Oh no! Bette Midler!"

"Selma's Choice" is another great episode - one that has something for everyone.

Re: The Simpsons

Classic Homer from a classic episode:
Marge: Oh, Maggie, when are you going to talk??
Lisa: Well, don't push her. Remember – 'tis better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
Homer (thinking): What does that mean? Better say something or they'll think you're stupid.
(aloud): Takes one to know one!
(thinking) Swish!

I believe that one was "Lisa's First Word." Definitely a classic.

Re: The Simpsons

That episode is jarring to watch now. When it was first shown Elizabeth Taylor did Maggie's voice, but since then on videos and clip shows her one word at the end has been changed to a different voice entirely. It sounds so wrong. Classic episode though, if only for Baby Bart's jealousy.

"Bye bye keys!"

Oh, and Homer and the Olympics/Krusty burger promotions. *does Turkey trot dance*

"I will personally spit in every 4000th burger!"
"I like those odds!"

Re: The Simpsons

i wish Maggie got more screenplay, they always come up with the best stuff for her.

for example i just love the epsode where she goes to day-care, and in "great escape" style they liberate the pacifiers

Re: The Simpsons

The show may have been on the way down by Season 11, but this bit from Pygmoelian where Moe reads the script for the soap opera he's starring in is great:

"Then I get in a sky-diving accident and have to be rushed to the ... [turns page] graveyard?!"
